Re: Big Monopoly Change!

Feb 8, 2013

I also think they should've just kept the iron and added an extra piece.  I wonder how many times the pieces have changed?  I don't remember the cannon or bag of money (they were probably just lost), but otherwise these look familiar:

monopoly1

 

I also remember the battleship and iron though:

monopoly2

 

I think I know them from video game versions, not from actually having used them.  I don't think I've played "standard" Monopoly in many years, but I have played Star Wars, LOTR, Indiana Jones, and possibly others somewhat recently.  While I like the look of the cat, the iron seems like a better piece to play with since it has a flat bottom, as Tempest_Fire mentioned.

That is a good question.

I am going to put all the blame on M&M/Mars for this,

way back when, they had an idea to make a new coloed M&M.

People voted and Blue won, YAY! I wanted Blue too:smileyvery-happy:

The next thing I knew, all the Tan M&Ms were gone:smileysurprised::smileysad::smileymad:

WHAT?!?!?!?

I never thought they would kill off the Tan.

 

I will make sure I save my Iron now for sure.

I don't even know how to play monopoly. :smileysurprised: Feels ilke I've missed out on something. Card games are my thing. 

 

It looks like most of the pieces are "manly" things. Iron was the only womanly piece, so that's kinda sad they're discontinuing it.
