Monopoly #tokenvote - Which Token Will You Vote to Keep? Plus Monopoly Game Giveaway!

Pin It
Ok, so I was a kid that grew up in the 80's and early 90's; before the times of internet and online gaming. If you're much younger than that, you might be wondering what we did for fun as kids. Well, we played board games! You know, the ones that actually come in a box and you have to set up on the table or floor.

My favorite game growing up was Monopoly. I played it constantly and I was quite the tycoon. More often than not, I would win!

I was excited to know that Monopoly is still a pretty popular game! They're actually coming out with a new token and retiring an old one. The best part is, Monopoly fans have a vote! You can vote to save one token and vote in another through the Monopoly Save Your Token contest!


What's your favorite token? Do you like the Car, Boot or Scottie Dog? Those are my top picks every time! Although, I used to choose the Horse way back in the day.

It was a tough decision for me, but I choose to save the Car. It's just one of the classics that I can't see them getting rid of. The Diamond Ring is the token that I voted in, for no reason other than I simply like it the best!


The new Monopoly tokens up for consideration are the diamond ring, guitar, toy robot, cat, and helicopter. Which one will you vote for?

My kids had never played Monopoly before a few days ago. Can you believe it? Big Bro and I set up in the living room one evening. We picked our tokens; him the Car {sometimes you just have to let you kids take your favorite!} and me the Shoe. As I was taking the money out of the wrappers {it was a brand new game}, Lil Man decided to tune out of the television and play a game with us.


We had quite the time! However, as in every Monopoly game, it took forever; especially with two brand new players! We had to take a pause and put the game away so that they could shower, read their books and hit the sack for the night. We gathered each of our money and properties into three separate piles so that we could pick up right where we left off. We'll be finishing our game over the weekend and they're excited!
