It all depends on which edition you play, but in the classic game of Monopoly there are the following tokens:

- battleship
- cannon
- dog
- horse and rider
- iron
- racecar
- sack of money
- shoe
- thimble
- top hat
- wheelbarrow

Which token do you choose and why?

My choice is the wheelbarrow, because I like to think that I will need it to carry home all of my winnings!

I always go for the dog, I guess because I love dogs. I pick the same token so I never forget where I am on the board.

There is always a piece missing which means there is a bottle cap involved. I want that one because I could win a free 20 oz soda!

Shockingly, I tend to vary my Monopoly game piece. Most often, I am the Iron or the Thimble, but I have been known to be the Dog and the Racecar and the Shoe.

I used to be the dog all the time bcause I found it funny when I would balance him on his front legs and his nose. This usually ended up with me laughing to the point of cataplexy as a kid...

But then I matured to the racecar smile.gif

I always played with the dog.
He would piss me off though because he would always fall over.
Sometimes I'd put him in the wheel barrel
. No matter what piece I choose, I always lost.
(or maybe just lost interest)
