Save the Monopoly Dog!

Monopoly has been my favorite game since I was a little girl who could barely count. My parents taught me how to play and then immediately regretted it. What started as a fun way to pass a Saturday evening became an obsession with me. My family would see me walk into a room, Monopoly box under my arm, and they'd disappear like cockroaches at the flip of a light switch.

Now it's my own kids who are treated to my competitive 'I must own every piece of property and wipe you out' mentality. Lucky them. I started them early with Monopoly Jr. Then we moved on to Monopoly. Then we got the electronic version which annoyed me so we moved back to the classic version. I will kiss anyone who gets me the Chicago version that I covet.

Anyway, they're going to retire one of the classic tokens and you get to vote to save your favorite piece. I voted for the dog because I'm always the dog. It's good luck. For real. So which token is your favorite? Are you always the shoe, the hat, the iron? Go to the Monopoly Facebook page HERE to vote! 


And not only can you vote for which token you want to save, but you can vote in one of five new tokens to replace the retired one! (I voted for the robot.)

So, head to the Facebook page to vote, then leave me a comment with which token you want to retire and/or which new token you want and I'll enter you in a drawing to win a brand-spanking new classic Monopoly game with all the original tokens! I'll choose a random winner on Friday, February 8, 2013. Good luck!

I voted to keep the dog. Although, I really prefer to be the dog wearing the top hat. Sometimes he gets tired and has to ride in the top hat. I voted for the cat as well.

save the car and in with the cat

I voted to keep the battleship. My favorite is the car, but it's by far the most popular, and unlikely to be eliminated. So I picked the best of the second or third choice pieces! If I could choose one to toss, it would be the iron. I've been playing Monopoly for over 20 years, and no one has ever chosen the iron! I'm an animal lover, so I picked the cat as my new piece :)

I chose to keep the car and add the cat.

I voted to keep the boot and voted in the guitar. But why change the classic?! The game has many other versions already!

I asked my Hubby and he says keep the dog and add the cat, so that is how we voted. =)

Save the ship, add the ring.

I voted a week or so ago to keep the dog and bring in the robot. I'm a Monopoly addict, I play at least once a day in some format!

Vanessa said...

I voted to keep the Dog, even though that's probably the most popular piece and probably doesn't have a chance of being discontinued. I didn't see the robot, but I voted for the cat.

Save the dog (my favorite) and voted for the new guitar (my son's choice).

I voted to keep the Battleship & picked the Helicopter as a new token.

jessica said...

Retire the battleship. It doesn't fit! I voted for the shoe because it was the underdog out of all of my favorites. Save the shoe!!

April M said...

Save the dog! (The wheelbarrow can go) I like the robot as a new piece. My son plays like you do Dawn. That's why we haven't played Monopoly in a long time at my house. I think winning will be the encouragement we need to play this classic game again ;)

They CANNOT get rid of the dog. It's the only piece I ever played!

Save the shoe and bring in the robot.

I voted to keep the wheelbarrow! I don't remember the battleship--I guess it must have been missing from my family's game?? The only version we have is my husband's from his childhood, which not only is in German (that's not a problem) and the money is vastly inflated (you get DM4000 for passing Go), it DOESN'T HAVE THE CLASSIC PIECES!!! Just generic colored plastic things. So I'd love a brand-new one, with the wheelbarrow. (But if something new HAS to come in, I opted for the cat.)

Angi said...

Keep the thimble. Add the robot. I wouldn't mind seeing the wheelbarrow or battleship retiring soon.

Tanya said...

I voted to save the thimble and add the robot.

Am I the only one who will miss the iron? But I voted for the shoe and want the cat. I Freecycled my old game to a grandmother of an 8 yr old. I'm sure it's gotten wonderful use, but I miss it and would love another one!

I voted to save the dog yesterday ;-)

Save the dog! Guitar seems like a good choice to add.
