Monopoly welcomes a kitty!

Monopoly welcomes a kitty!


Monopoly fans worldwide have participated in an online vote to choose the newest player token in Monopoly, while also choosing which token is ready for retirement. The voters chose to welcome the cat token, and retired the iron.

A couple of things to think about with these new changes:

  • Inviting a cat into each and every home who purchases the new Monopoly game is a lot to handle. Don’t they know that people are allergic?
  • The nations choice in the cat speaks loudly of our societies weird obsession with cats, and the loss of the iron explains why gross wrinkly clothes are so popular.
  • Now that I think about it, why was the iron ever a piece in this game?
  • Now that I think about it, that’s probably why they got rid of it.
