2. That could actually be an interesting house rule

Like declare that certain properties ban certain pieces? impossible to balance though I suppose.

16. At least, no cats with claws.

Do they include a litter box in the new game?

And how do you keep the new piece from wandering off, totally unimpressed with what the humans are doing?

6. Noooooo ! The iron was my favorite. It was smooth and pointy

aerodynamic !

Reminds me of the time all the men in our office got invited out to play golf. Me and my female coworker were mad. Our department had been looking for ways/standardized tests to give new analysts to determine if they had an analytical personality. So she and I completely made up a test based on Monopoly. We made up a personality assessment for each token. When the guys got back, we told them that a salesman had come by, and we were so impressed we purchased their testing plan. We then asked each of them to select a token, then graphed their personality traits on the white board. It was hysterical. But, amazingly enough, actually fit their personalities and they truly thought it was a real test. The aggressive young analyst picked the race car. The shy quiet one, the thimble.

your brain with a hat. Haha

7. Absolute heresy

 

I was wondering which one they were going to get rid of. I predicted the thimble.

I'd take any of the old pieces over Scruffles the cat here.

You don't mess with the classics. Two thumbs down.

20. Solution: Buy some extra cats and paint them different colors.

They may fight over who gets basement cat. I don't think ceiling cat would play Monopoly.

It was one of those solid heavy types perfect for taking out your business partner from behind.

29. I always liked the Scottie dog. I call him Fala, and when it's time to move...

... I say "Walkies, Fala!" which drives DH nuts.

Hmmm. Now what to do with the Kitty? Invite him out in search of cheezeburgers?
