With online voting...you know it's going to be the Cat. Of course when playing it'll have to stop every 3 move to spray urine over everything.

Only losers used the thimble and wheelbarrow, anyway. Monopoly winners play the car, dog, or top hat.

See how well your car and dog hold against my cannon, foo'.

Nooo!  Playing Monopoly is the only time I use an iron.

It would mean more if they were still made of decent metal.

Yeah I'm grumpy about the cheap-ification of every toy and game.  Plastic and aluminum suck.

Hah... I heard about this on the radio driving home from work and said "cat - thank you, internet." Not that I mind, I have 3 cats myself and would probably vote cat.

Indeed. The Iron should have gone instead.

I have never played Monopoly without the race car. And I have never lost. Never, even playing cutthroat and with some asshole always getting the "free parking" payout. I make things happen out there. I make deals, son. I own some motherf*ckers when you break out that board.

I have always promised myself that when I achieve world domination, I will wipe all traces of that farking thimble from the face of the Earth. I'm not kidding.

As long as we are at it, a few more things need updating.

The 5%/$200 income tax square is completely regressive. It should go up to 33% for high-income players.

If you own all 4 Railroads, you should be able to consolidate them into one entity, cash out all the equity, and sell them to the Feds for a pile of money.

You should be able to buy houses and hotels for $3 down, and finance the rest for $1 every time you pass Go, with a $97 balloon payment due after the game ends.

Go to Jail cards should be replaced with the chance to do community service.

Monopoly always took hours to decide what piece everyone was. There was alot of punching, nougies and screaming.


Good good times.

Everyone of you is a liar if you still use all of the actual monopoly pieces.

In my game, you get to choose from a dime, one of the playing pieces from Sorry!, a pawn from a travel chess set, and a mini ten sided dice.

I get the race car and that is non-negotiable.

What's with all the thimble hate? I always play the thimble, it's the most substantial piece on the board.

Some asshole breaking the rules with their own is what make the game get too damn long.
Without a free parking payout and doing auctions a game will last about 30 minutes.

Still thirty minutes too much spent on Monopoly. Seriously, is this the '80s?

Retiring the thimble? The fark they are!

For over 40 years now, I have been the mutherfarking top hat. Everybody else grabs for the flashy racecar and the cute little dog, while I just casually pick up my spiffy hat.

An hour into the game, everybody else is jealous of my class and panache. I even move it slowly from square to square, like a gentleman squiring about town.

I'm the goddamn Top Hat. Deal with it.
 
2013-01-10 10:51:49 AM
I was always the wheelbarrow :(
 
2013-01-10 10:56:01 AM
Car or dog for me, but the car was the preference. Sometimes the tophat. The iron was lame, so was the thimble. The wheelbarrow I had no strong feelings for either way.

They will do this, then in 6 months bring out a "Monopoly Classic" set for you to buy.

I'm actually pretty good at that Monopoly thing. My wife? Not so much. We played for a while, every night for two weeks. I beat her 13 times in a row. She won game 14. That was six years ago. We haven't played since.

/She might be a bit of a sore loser.

I always play as the iron. You never have to fight someone for the iron.

Pewter casting is a time-honored tradition and certain types of tabletop-gaming enthusiast will tell you all about it if you so much as hint that you're interested.

As such, I made a few additional pieces for the family Monopoly set, simply because we have so many players on holidays, and my one cousin, the game expert, is designing a huge, eight-sided board that folds out onto a round table with six new colors, four new railroads, a second Jail, a second Go (necessary to maintain gameplay,) a lazy susan so the board rotates and a money tray on a TV stand for the banker. I'm also working on molds to cast the houses and hotels in pewter, so they're more substantial, and will either electroplate them in copper and chrome respectively (I know a guy who works at a chrome plant,) or hand-paint them the traditional red and green with little windows and stuff with Testor's enamel and then spray-seal them for maximum durability.

We've been working on it since Christmas and hope to have it ready in time for Grandma's ninetieth birthday, as Monopoly is her favorite game and she loves it so. Husband and I built the table and banker's tray (it even has a printing calculator built-in, because Grandma's House Rules mean a non-playing little kid is chosen to be banker and some of the kids are still iffy on math,) my cousin and her husband have been having us over to painstakingly hand-paint the board every weekend (we'll seal it with clear-coat once it's done,) and the whole thing is about half finished. The hardest parts were working out the expansion without affecting play (luckily cousin is a serious board-games expert,) and finding authentic names for the new streets, landmarks and railroads. We actually called a third cousin in Atlantic City to accomplish this.

And yes, in our family Monopoly is Serious Business. Every child gets a set for their thirteenth birthday, and on holidays we have the kid's version at the 'little kids' table, the regular version at the regular kids' table (ages eight to thirteen,) and a big adults-only game that has been known to last well into the night. Some years we have to have four adult-division boards going and tournament brackets to decide who plays on Christmas Day, but the new eight-sider board should enable many more players at a given time.

I have never once won a Christmas Day game in the adults' division, but since only Cousin, I, and our husbands have seen and play-tested the new Ninetieth Birthday board, I am cherishing vague hopes.

We have to confiscate the wheelbarrow from the new games before we can give the games to our inmates. If we let them have the wheelbarrows, they steal them and use them as screwdrivers for the security screws. They all know that if we catch them with one their ass is grass. They will get a charge of interfering with security proceedures. They do not want that charge.
