    Yeah, get rid of the thimble – most people don’t even know what it is now! Personally, I’d like to see a helicopter, but I can imagine a lot of arguments ensuing over that (“I didn’t land on your hotel, I flew straight over it!!”)

    We dont have a battleship here, we have a horse jumping up on its hind legs.  Interesting

    @sentenced2life:  Hmm, my old Monopoly set from the 80’s has both.

    I hadn’t heard about this but agree, the thimble is so old school. I would love the horse one a PP mentioned!

    Edit: 600th post! Woo!

    I wouldn’t miss the iron at all. I voted to replace it with the diamond ring which I think is fitting since this poll is on WeddingBee. hehe

    Where is the option for not changing any? I don’t see the need. I mean Mickey Mouse is getting on should we replace him? Should we change the hungry hungry hippos to really hungry mice?

    This is just a marketing schtick on their part. The “modern” tokens are no more “modern” than the existing ones.

    Guess they feel that board games are facing stiff competition these days.

    I always play with the dog, but I like the thimble because it can fit on my pinky. ^_^ I’d retire the shoe, though. I’ve never liked that shoe for some reason. They should replace it with a sneaker!

    Ahh I remember the horse.  That was in my original game.  Not the one I have now.  I say kick out the wheel barrow.
