This was a 2-week project at school, so though I'm happy with the result - I wasn't able to completely finish the project and perfect it (The hotels/houses are the same and better player-bricks? are needed.(The requirements were only the box, the board game itself, Working playerbricks, 3 card examples... though I made them all)) Spent an approximately 8 hours designing and 4 hours printing, taping, glueing and cutting everything. The product contains all the property cards, chance-cards, luck-cards... and the board game, of course.
Get a load of this action:
Yes. I would play it.

The exclusive fraternity of Monopoly tokens, bridging many generations with the shared childhood memory of fighting over who got the racecar, added a new member to its ranks today, and got rid of that stupid flat iron once and for all.
What's new? Well, as this was voted on by the Internet, there was no way in hell a cat was going to lose. So, the kitty makes the lineup. Cat was the preferred choice of 31 percent of the zillions who voted on this thing.
The iron was voted out with a paltry 7 percent support from the public. Also facing relegation were the wheelbarrow and the shoe. Iron was one of the original eight metal tokens but is now officially a free agent. If it doesn't choose retirement, iron's options are a gig with Pay Day, or filming advertisements with Dennis Rodman.
Scottie dog got the most support of the existing pieces, 29 percent.
If you're upset that the cool toy robot didn't make it in, fear not, all of the candidate pieces above are available in a special Target-only edition, proving board games are just like video games. Actually, if they were, every box would contain all of the tokens in a locked box and six months after Target sold all of its stock, you could buy a key for $5.99.
Not only are they messing with a tradition that didn't need to be messed with, they're handling it in a fairly obnoxious way by putting it to a vote.
On February 5, the original piece (wheelbarrow, shoe, top hat, thimble, iron, dog, car or battleship) with the lowest votes will be gone, replaced by a... toy robot, helicopter, cat, guitar or diamond ring.
(Though, OK, the robot is pretty great, since you can pretend you're in a Japanese monster movie. Take THAT, Pall Mall. Rargh).
