I think we need to sit down and have a talk with the internet about its obsession with cats. An intervention or something.

Re: the new MONOPOLY token is...

There will be a billion Monopoly Iron tokens on eBay by Tuesday.

Apparently some long-time Monopoly fans are already complaining about lens flares on the cats.

I know there was actually an official version of this, but some years ago my sister and I made a Star Trek monopoly. We've still got it, actually. The one thing we couldn't make was the tokens...

You could have cut off the heads of Playmate action figures and used them.

Are you still wanting tokens? If so, try searching for "Star Trek Pewter" ... They made pewter figurines of the characters in at least two sizes. One was the normal-type, about 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall for each. Then there was another much smaller version, about one inch tall, that was made for some kind of game. As I understand it, they originally came five or six to a package, and were then supposed to be painted by the consumer and then used as characters in whatever game it was.

I've seen them in flea markets, and bought a set of them just a few days ago, a set of the main seven from TOS, for $15 total. It was a reasonable price to me. They're a bit taller than the normal Monopoly pieces, but they'll work for me.

This is in addition to the official pieces the company (Hasbro?) included with their various Trek Monopoly games, of course.

I am glad the iron is gone. No one wants to be the iron! The boot needs to be changed next.

Yeah, I think I can resist them pretty well. At least enough to not become a crazy internet cat-person like, well, 90% of the internet apparently is.

Re: the new MONOPOLY token is...

It's because secretly many of us wish we were crazy cat lady. We can't be crazy cat lady IRL so we become crazy cat lady on the internet.
