    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.

    I don't remember the wheelbarrow. Wasn't there top hat at one time?

    I have long maintained that FSU should have its own Monopoly game. Our board should be an oval rather than a square (we need it shaped like a rink) and instead of buying properties, we would buy judges.

    I think the most expensive item will be the Quad Axel. Or President of the ISU.

    I always wanted the Top Hat or thimble. I hated to get stuck with the shoe or wheelbarrow.

    If I do a figure skating board game kickstarter, would you support it? :p

    (j/k - anything monopoly like is protected, and there is a bunch of manufacturing issues with board games you would have to understand, which I don't)

    :lol: Brilliant!

    There you go maatTheViking - here is your chance. Anyone got time to do the FSU Version? Although it probably needs it's own thread in the Trash Can to get the ideas.

    Substituting iron for cat = substituting one hissing thing for another. :D

    Must resist all temptation to go out and buy new Monopoly set just so I can have a cat piece. Probably just as well I don't, though -- all our family are cat-lovers, we'd fight over who gets that piece!

    I think you should be able to swap your iron for the cat - like when Tupperware breaks you can exchange it for a new one.

    Maybe they will sell the cat separately.

    If you land on Frank Carroll you will have to pay a percentage of your earnings. You also might have to pay for a male skating partner. Psycho skating mom could cost a trip to the shrink.

    How much would Fumie Suguri cost? She would be one of the Chance cards.

    Tonya Harding and Suzanne Bonaly would be the two dark purple properties.

    Wahoo kitties! If they get that for the computerized version I am always going to be the cat. The software I have is pretty old but I like the Scotty dog and the battleship who sounds like Katherine Hepburn. The iron's voice is like Rosie O'Donnell's.
