Monopoly has replaced the Iron token with a Cat token, after a voting contest. Go the Cats!

Already having a dog, and with so many cat lovers, it makes sense to have a cat as well.

I must say growing up, I don't recall anyone ever picking the iron! I would always try to get the dog, car, or shoe. :)

I always went for the horse! I agree the iron was the least favourite. People also liked the car.

:wuzrobbed The iron! I'll :wuzrobbed some more for mlp. (I usually picked the thimble or the iron. :shuffle:) Adding the cat is fine with me, but I would have gotten rid of the battleship or that old shoe before the iron.

:rofl: When I saw this I was so confused until I clicked the link. Danish monopoly is all different coloured cars (unless it is a themed one, I guess).

The shoe and the wheelbarrow were the second and third lowest vote getters. I would have gotten rid of the wheelbarrow. That said- I was always the car or the dog. I wish they had added the helicopter.

Personally, I always liked the green dolphin. But the Monopoly game I played belonged to my grandmother and I suspect a few things were added or lost over the years. We always had wooden houses and hotels so I was quite surprised once to play at a friends house and find plastic. Surprised a cat was only added now. About time!

The battleship has always been my fave token.

Not surprising that the iron, shoe and wheelbarrow were the lowest vote-getters.

I loved the iron. Hated the shoe.

I didn't vote though. Mostly because we already have about 5 different themed Monopoly games and not about to buy more, so I figured it wouldn't impact me one way or another. :lol:

I would have died a little inside if she had said she liked to play the hobo shoe.

Which ones do you have?

Years ago I brought my sister and her husband to be Catopoly as their engagement present. They loved it.
