Hello, My Friends!~~
The news is buzzing about which current Monopoly game token will be replaced with a yet-to-be-determined new game token. The majority of voters want the iron gone! No, I say! It is my favorite game piece and here is why:
1. The iron has a handle which makes it very easy to pick up and move.
2. The iron is the smallest game token. Why is that good? I'll tell you. When I play Monopoly I always choose the iron because it can get lost on the game board. So if you land on an occupied property and the owner is not paying attention and doesn't notice your little token on his/her space, you can get away rent free if the next move is made before he/she notices rent is due. I don't know if that is a real Monopoly rule, but the folks I play with firmly establish a pay-attention clause before the game begins.
So, let's keep the iron, because seriously do we really need the battleship? I don't think so!~~~Off to Baltic Avenue!~~XXOO, Beth
