Monopoly: one of the oldest, most well known board games ever. Yet, it has a very polarizing perception among game lovers everywhere. Some people LOVE it. Some people HATE it. Where do you fall in that spectrum?
Recently, Monopoly started a Facebook campaign to let people decide what token they should get rid of and what should replace it. The clothes iron was sadly let go.
…and replaced with a CAT.
Am I the only one that thinks that’s outrageous?! I’m not a big monopoly fan…mostly because I am impatient and don’t want to spend 3 hours playing a board game. But I definitely wouldn’t want to spend 3 hours playing a board game with a cat token. I came across this humorous TIME article about other board games that could benefit from a cat. Hmmm…I sense a bit of sarcasm in those words.
What do you think? Was the cat the right choice?
Whether you are for or against monopoly, have a game night with your friends this weekend.
Minus the cat. Please.
