Scottie dog has a new nemesis in Monopoly after fans voted in an online contest to add a cat token to the property trading game, replacing the iron, toy maker Hasbro Inc. announced Wednesday. The results were announced after the shoe, wheelbarrow and iron were neck and neck for elimination in the final hours of voting that sparked passionate efforts by fans to save their favorite tokens, and by businesses eager to capitalize on publicity surrounding pieces that represent their products/Associated Press.

  • DFO: I rarely play Monopoly. But when I do, I pick the shoe token. Almost. Every. Time. Dunno why.

Question: When did you last play Monopoly?
