MonopolyNew Monopoly Token Writing Prompt: Goodbye to the iron, and hello, kitty!

Fans of Monopoly voted out the iron player token, and voted to add a new player token, a cat. The cat beat out a robot, guitar, diamond ring, and helicopter with 31% of the vote. The lowly iron came in last with 8% of the vote, with the wheelbarrow and the shoe just squeaking through the elimination to remain in the game.

So today's Writing Prompt puts the vote to you. Which token would you choose to eliminate from the current Monopoly game, and which token do you think should be added?

    I would take away the thimble because it doesn’t match the rest of the pieces. I would add either Harry Potter or Percy Jackson

    You know that they’re going to make a “Classic Version” for twice the price just to include the iron and old Monopoly art?

    I, myself, don’t like the dog. I like the battleship and the car. They should remove the dog and the thimble and put in a book and a telephone.

    I think the objects that can actually move in real life are the best pieces for Monopoly. I would add a bicycle,and make it so that the wheels could turn on all the pieces with wheels.

    I would chose to eliminate the wheelbarrow and cup. Every time I play Monopoly the wheelbarrow and the iron don’t get picked. I love playing with the dog, car and ship. I think the robot should be added. Also there should be a new Monopoly version using book characters and places like Harry potter, Percy Jackson, Hogwarts and Camp Half Blood(many more).
