Monopoly changes out three game tokens
This isn't too political really but we all need a change of pace every now and then. The board game Monopoly is replacing three of its classic game tokens (the thimble, boot and wheelbarrow) and replacing them with a penguin, rubber duck and a T-Rex. I'm not sure how anyone can get rich or broke investing in penguins, rubber ducks and dinosaurs, but whatever floats their boat I guess.

If they were smart they'd get the gays into buying it by making unicorns for the game.

A transgendered muslim would have an easy time with their wardrobe.

Players using the T-Rex piece will not be allowed to collect their $200 for passing go until they perform an adequate T-Rex impression.

They need to update the race car. Make it a modern look. It is an old Indy car in the old days.

It's a board game and the plug in would be in the way.

Who knows? Maybe they were thinking those pieces were relevant 100 years ago, but today, not so much??? I know - T-Rex is relevant how???

The Atlantic is greatly disturbed by the change:
https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/a...ns/519996/

selected Atlantic reader's comments:

Have you noticed that the winning strategy for Monopoly involves acquiring a monopoly on the reds and oranges -- the squares on which one is most likely to land after leaving jail, because the system is set up to send everyone to jail at some point -- and building hotels on them? Funny, huh?

Anyone else notice that all the new pieces are from the theropod branch of the phylogenic tree? Coincidence? I think so.
