If I'm not the car I'm not playing.

Of course, I've not played Monopoly in 20+ years or longer.

Exclamation Little known story

You guys are all in a tiss over the monopoly tokens. But did you know that Monopoly played a role during WWII helping Allied POWs escape from prison camps?

It is a true story as verified by Snopes. http://www.snopes.com/military/monopoly.asp

I always preferred the car also

When I played it as a kid we used to play it so much at one time we started calling it "monotony"

Even though we do still have our physical Monopoly game, it has been a very long time since we played it.

A couple years ago I had a Monopoly game on my computer where you could play against the computer.

Neat !

......I figured it had to be more than them just showing their captors the "Get out of Jail Free" card

I am sad they dumped the thimble. I always played that or the battleship.
