When you play Monopoly, is there a game piece you always prefer to use?

As for me, I always choose the dog, don’t know why.

The thimble because I can stick my wittle pinky in it.

Hat! I love hats. :D

The shoe, definetely the SHOE.

The boot. But I never win. I usually give up. My family plays for blood. or at least till your back breaks from sitting so long.

The dog! How has no one else picked the dog??

MacBean's avatar

Dogs are smelly and noisy. Why would you want to be the dog?

ubersiren's avatar

The iron. Pow!

xxii's avatar

@MacBean – Cars are cannons are both noiser. Boots and horses are both smellier.

I made my own. A little lead wizard throwing a fireball. I also painted all the pieces that came with the game.

The battleship. Always the battleship. Why they don’t have an aircraft carrier or Aegis cruiser yet I will never know.

The dog. I always have to have the dog or I don’t play.

Money bags, when I can. If not, the sports car. I always liked these two pieces.

@WestRiverrat That is awesome.

I hate!!!! monopoly. Hopefully if I have grandchildren, they will play other games- I will certainly strongly encourage other games!!

I have a special edition of the game, which included a Railroad Train piece!
On traditional sets, the dog or the top hat are my fav’s, but I don’t demand them.

Seaofclouds's avatar

I always use the thimble. It’s been my favorite piece for as long as I can remember.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Cannon. It’s a guaranteed victory.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@chyna Me cheating at monopoly is also guaranteed. Wanna play?

chyna's avatar

Yes, but I have to be the dog. Can I be the banker? (evil laugh)

For me, the iron. Never had to worry about it falling over because of the flat area.

Zen_Again's avatar

Top Hat, of course.

Kraigmo's avatar

The car, ‘cuz it’s the biggest, least topsy-turvy, and presumably the fastest.
I’ll obviously roll better numbers if I have the car.

YARNLADY's avatar

Wahhhh, my game only had wooden tokens I always chose the purple one.

andrew's avatar

Well, obviously the car. Or the top hat.

But on World Edition, I got for the russian nesting dolls.

BAM! Illinois FTW!!!

OpryLeigh's avatar

I always choose the dog too, simply because dogs are my favourite things in the world!

liminal's avatar

Wheelbarrow, then I can carry you all away!

EmpressPixie's avatar

Top hat. Always. I love it.

sakura's avatar

I find it interesting how many peices there actually are!! I prefer the dog or the boot, but we have a NZ version of Monopoly and I have to have the jandle/sandal/flipflop or the surfboard just because I think they look cool!

Seaofclouds's avatar

@Sakura I have 5 different versions of Monopoly and I love some of the non-traditional pieces. If I play one of the versions that don’t have a thimble I usually switch it up between all of the other pieces.

sakura's avatar

you can make your own version too!

downtide's avatar

When I was a kid, my sister always got the dog. I usually had the car but I didn’t have a particular favourite.

liminal's avatar

@sakura Oooo, I would be arm wrestling you for that flip-flop!
