If you ask any of my family members they will tell you that I love playing games. Not any type of game but board games and card games. One of my favorite games is Monopoly and this week they announced a change that has upset some board gamers but has been celebrated by others.
Hasbro, the company who makes the Monopoly board game asked fans of the game which playing piece they should change and the majority ruled that we should say good-bye to the iron. They are replacing it with a new cat playing piece. As a cat loving family, we will embrace the new cat. Although I did enjoy using the iron because it was always easy to grasp and move around the board.
In todays fast paced, technologically enhanced world it’s nice to sit around the dining room table with a group of family members and/or friends and play a board game. Conversations and friendly competition are bound to happen.
