A cat is the new Monopoly game token chosen to replace the iron, one of the game's early tokens. The cat was chosen by voters in an online contest. It now joins the racecar, shoe, thimble, top hat, wheelbarrow, and battleship. And it creates a way for future collectors of Monopoly games to date the year a game was made. Monopoly and other games' prices can be found at Kovels online price guide under 'Game.'

This is so funny. Probably no one know what an iron is or does. Does anyone know what a thimble is or does? Or a wheelbarrow? Oh, maybe some guys are acquainted with wheelbarrows.
