The diamond ring similarly doesn't jibe with us. We always assumed that Monopoly players were tacitly supposed to be scheming vagabonds, mugging vacationers for their Chance cards using irons and thimbles and old boots in a contest to become the God of Slumlords.
At least you can throw the cat at people.
The truth is that Monopoly pieces represent absolutely bupkis, as they originated as charm bracelet trinkets. But what if Hasbro instead proposed five tokens that actually epitomized the Monopoly-playing experience, what with its ups and downs and glaring lack of due process? We think they'd look a little something like this.
