Monopoly's New Cat Token

Go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. If you were the iron Monopoly token, that is. In fact, skip jail and go to oblivion.

Nothing will ever be the same again now that the 76-year-old Monopoly has changed EVERYTHING by axing the iconic iron token and replacing it with (surprise, surprise) a cat, as voted by the Interwebs:

The feline piece conquered its own competition in a separate vote on the Monopoly Facebook page, winning over four other proposed tokens — a toy robot, guitar, helicopter and diamond ring — with 31%.

"We know that cat lovers around the world will be happy to welcome the new cat token into the Monopoly game," said Eric Nyman, senior vice president and global brand leader for Hasbro Gaming, in a statement. "While we're a bit sad to see the iron go, the cat token is a fantastic choice by the fans and we have no doubt it will become just as iconic as the original tokens."

It shouldn't take that long to play if you play aggressively and actually trade. There used to be a multiplayer version on and it would generally take about 30-40 minutes per game because people played properly (mercilessly screwing each other over).
Your right about the banker always cheating tho!
