When I was growing up, Sunday afternoons were always filled with board games at my Grandma’s house. Monopoly was always a favourite, the banker always cheated but it could go on for hours, but we loved it. We were all creatures of habit. My Dad had the top hat, my brother the car, my Grandma the scotty dog and I was always the boot.
Monopoly is a game which is very close to my heart and one I’ve been looking forward to playing with my son. We did wonder if at the age of 6 he was too young to play, but we were very pleasantly surprised that he embraced the game with gusto and enjoyed building his empire (that’s my boy!).
We still have the original Monopoly game which we rescued from my Grandma’s house after she died, but it’s great to have the brand new Monopoly Token Madness Vote edition to play with, especially as it has eight of the golden tokens included – most of which won’t make it into future editions of the game – it could be a real future collectors item!
When it comes to our family, we are still slaves to tradition. I’m still the old boot; hubs went for an upgrade from his standard racing car to the new golden F1 version; and the small boy followed in my Grandma’s footsteps and went for the scotty dog. It made my heart glad.
What’s your favourite Monopoly token, and which one will you vote to save?
