Monopoly Gamers Choose the Cat to Replace the Iron: Good Choice or God Awful?

Last month, the makers of Monopoly announced that they would be adding a new token to its board game and dropping an old one -- and that it would make the decision of which game piece gets to stay and go based on people's votes. Well, the votes are in. And the iron is out!

Most people voted that the iron token should be the one to go from the game. Interestingly enough,when we asked SodaHeads, you all voted the iron as your No. 2 pick for the game piece that should get the boot. What was your No. 1 choice? The thimble! Go figure...

In addition to the iron becoming extinct, Monopoly has also announced that a "cat" token will be added to the game. Was this vote the result of some serious internet trolling? Or are lots of people actually big fans of cats? Whatever the case, we want to know how you feel about this Monopoly update. Is the kitty cat addition a good choice -- or god awful?

Monopoly gamers have spoken, choosing the cat as a new token. Say good-bye to the iron.

    Mostly because they didn't even try to make it look like it was part of the set. It's in a different style from the other pieces. Also, I'm nostalgic. How did the thimble beat the iron?

    The monopoly game pieces were originally designed to be symbolic of multiple jobs. We already had a dog for pet grooming and the like, adding a cat defeats the original symbolism of the game pieces.

    It's no big deal, either way. It's a nod to chicks who like to play Monopoly.

    When I was a kid, we had to throw dice to see who got the car. If I didn't get the car, I always took the Top Hat for my game piece.

    When we would play monopoly, that would be one of the pieces we would not use. A cat, well, my guess is that it won't be one of the last ones to be chosen.

    I always chose the iron because it is something that can be used to protect myself in real life in the absence of a gun. I have never really liked cats. I tried to keep a stray around once by feeding it and providing it a shelter out of the weather and it died anyway. Tells me cats are not something to have around. LOL

    I gotta disagree with ya on that point, neighbor.. With respect, social, freindly, "Lap-cats" are good to have about.. "Crazy Cat Clowns" make a body laugh.. Yup. Jus' sayin.

    In actual game play, it's gonna be a constant PIA to tell these two apart:

    monopoly dog
    monopoly cat

    I'd have gone for the Ring piece.

    Hear, hear! I adore cats (have 4 rescues of my own), but folks, this is MONOPOLY we're talking about. Can't get a much better sign of what this game represents than a big ol' diamond ring!
