    The Iron is out, the Cat is in (Monopoly tokens)

    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.

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

    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.

    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?

    My sister, the neat freak, is gutted.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    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.
