What is/was your favorite Monopoly token?

Mine is/was the cannon, which was retired in 2000-

Possibly not the place to share this. I’ve never played Monopoly, do I need to duck behind the sofa? smile.

Top hat, next favourite the dog.

Do grown-ups have “favourite” things?
Colours, drinks, Smarties ...or dinosaurs?

I am always the "old boot" grin

Another ‘old boot’ here Pittcity! grin

And another 'old boot'; what would we do GranEd and Pittcity if we were all playing together? Second choice for me is the top hat.

Everyone else wanted the racing car so I usually ended up dashing away (if lucky) with the smoothing iron.

Grannybags Mon 13-Jul-20 09:31:23

Oh no - another 'Old Boot' here!! My second choice is the top too so there'll be squabbling if we all play together!

Grannybags Mon 13-Jul-20 09:31:48

That should be top hat...!

DiscoGran Mon 13-Jul-20 09:44:42

The little dog, of course. 🐕

Pittcity Mon 13-Jul-20 13:08:20

Because my DS and his family "kept forgetting" to give me my 50 year old Monopoly set back, I went out last week and bought a brand new Special Edition set from John Lewis. Some of the tokens are the same; the dog, car, top hat, boot, but now there are new tokens too! A cat, thimble, wheelbarrow and, my personal favourite, a John Lewis van!

A John Lewis van sounds lovely Chewbacca but I really like the sound of a wheelbarrow.

Yes you did bagsy the boot first Pitcitty so for the record, in case we ever get to play with Chewbacca's Special Edition set I pick the wheelbarrowgrin.

Chewbacca Mon 13-Jul-20 15:08:16

The John Lewis van is miiiine all miiiine! Not sharing!

timetogo2016 Mon 13-Jul-20 15:10:24

The iron for me, i haven`t played in years and tbh i don`t miss it one bit.

Smileless2012 Mon 13-Jul-20 15:48:53

Just make sure when you come to our lodge you bring your Special Edition game with you Chewbacca because I want to play with the wheelbarrowgrin.

Sorry I wouldn’t care I hate Monopoly , most boring game ever invented

rosecarmel Tue 14-Jul-20 01:01:39

It can be incredibly boring 😊

But we always incorporated house rules to move it along-

Boring or not, it was always friendly-
