Hasbro has decided it’s time to retire a game piece to bring in a new player. None of the pieces are safe and we believe Monopoly would not be the same without the race car!

The MONOPOLY game was officially created in 1934 as a game about real-estate along the New Jersey Shore. Since 1935 Monopoly has become an American icon and it known world wide! More than six billion little green houses and 2.25 billion red hotels have been “constructed” since 1935 and more than 20 tokens have been used since the MONOPOLY game was introduced in 1935 such as the horse, dog, car, elephant, purse and lantern.

Although the official record for a game of MONOPOLY is 70 days long, in my younger years my roommates and I have has some marathon games that have lasted much longer even with breaks for sleep and food.

It just feels natural to have a race car as a MONOPOLY token, and we could not imagine a game without some type of motorized transportation, especially ones that do not require a driver’s license.
