    Watch, now there will be a mad dash by many to buy sets that have the thimble in it before it's gone.

    Very true. I think they will forever deliberately replace game pieces just to get people to buy a whole new Monopoly set.
    I like the idea of a dog vs a cat though. That was a nice touch.
    If you never say no, how much is your yes worth?

    Other pieces have already been replaced, so it is not the same as the original game.
    No irony there.

    I see that instead of a dollar sign for money, they have a strange "M".
    Why don't they just switch to that oddball "simoleans" symbol and be done with it.
    They ruined enough tradition when they made changes to luxury tax & income tax - and that "speed die".
    Anyway - Enough.

    My favorite game piece to use when we played (as kids) was the top hat, with the car a close second. Still hate to see the thimble go, though.
