Do you have a favorite token that you always choose when you play Monopoly? As an animal lover I have always chosen the Scottie Dog. He is just so cute, how could anyone choose anything else? But, apparently other people have other tokens that are their favorite. Let me quiz you – can you name all 8 tokens? ………………don't peek………………….. OK. They are: Scottie dog,, battleship, iron, racecar, shoe, thimble, top hat, and wheelbarrow.
And now for the devastating news – Monopoly has decided that one of the classic tokens is going to be retired! The fate of the tokens is in the hands of fans who will decide which token gets the boot. But, in it's place, a new token will be introduced. The five possible new tokens are the diamond ring, guitar, toy robot, cat, and helicopter. You can play your part in the decision by voting at www.Facebook.com/Monopoly.
So now for my plea – PLEASE vote for the Scottie dog! How could you not? He's the only living thing in the bunch! And as far as a new token is concerned, you know I'll be voting for the cat. The Scottie dog needs someone to play with!
