    Looks like the cat is in and the iron is out:


    Here's the new Monopoly game piece:

    I liked the iron. The iron was solid. The iron never tipped over.

    Battleship was always my favorite.

    The Monopoly piece, not the game.

    Had I voted, it would have been to dump the top hat or the thimble.

    Among the new choices (cat, helicopter, diamond ring, guitar, robot), I like the cat, but the robot had the most potential for a cool game piece.

    For example, there could have been two versions ... Al Gore or Donald Trump ... :)

    I learned this morning that the dude on the horse (which I always called "statue") is no longer in the game.

    IJAG's Monopoly piece rankings:
    1. Scottie
    2. race car
    3. top hat
    4. wheelbarrow
    5. boot
    6. battleship
    7. iron (RIP)
    8. thimble. The thimble fucking sucks. I will not listen to any dissenters.

    That's the other thing: How will the terrier react to this news? There could be some serious interbox discord, and I'm not talking about poisonous vaginas.

    And the thimble is the absolute worst. Does anyone like someone who chooses the thimble? That's a great way to get your ass kicked in some parts of town.

    I've always liked the racecar myself, followed by the ship.

    I liked the pieces you could slide across the board most easily. Far easier to slide an iron than a dog or (curiously enough) a wheelbarrow

    Race car was clearly the best in regular Monopoly, but if you had the deluxe edition, the race car might as well be the thimble next to the GOLDEN TRAIN

    I do like the robot, if only for the mustache (to look like the Community Chest guy, get it?).
