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!
