A new token is coming to Monopoly

Jan 10, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KNVA-TV Austin

The gig is almost up for one of the eight Monopoly tokens. But which will it be? Iron? Thimble? Top Hat? Hasbro is holding a Facebook contest to eliminate one of the eight tokens that identify the players and introduce a new one.

Heard Obama wanted to raise the entitlement for "Passing Go" from $200 to $500 and you don't "Go Directly to Jail" anymore, you go directly and apply for a goverment check, of course you don't end up "In Jail", nope, its the Rehabilitation Center and everyone is "Just Visiting"

"Income and Luxury Taxes" sky rocketed but "The Houses" are a lot cheaper,and don't bother lOOking into the "Community Chest", "Chance"s are its empty cause "The Banker" owns that too.

"Free Parking" for everyone except the hard working Tax-payer.

We're all being "Rail Roaded" by "The Electric Company" and "Waterworks" unless you live on "Boardwalk" and "Park Place" and then its a write off, or you live on "Baltic Ave" and then "Community Chest" pays it, but most of us live at "St. Charles Place" or "Tennesse Avenue" and hope someday to be able to just buy "Marvin Gardens" or if we work really hard and take shortcuts we could end up on "Pennsylvania Avenue" but most of us realistically will never get past "Kentucky Avenue"

It is detachable. More versatile that way. You ever go over a bad bump on your bike and land right on your crank? Not me!

They tried a puppet icon but its strings got tangled and it flopped and crawled around the board.

It was pathetic.

Why do you gotta keep telling everyone about that! It only happened once, I put it on the anvil and straightened out the crooked boner. I forgot to disable the pain sensors first, ouch!

They were thinking about making an Oprah token, but it would have taken up half the board so they decided against it.
