The dog was always in time out. My sister and I both always wanted to be the dog, so no one got to be the dog. I think by default I usually choose the hat. Did you know kids have been fighting over their choice of a dog, top hat, wheel barrow, race car, boot, iron, battleship and thimble for 75 years? LOL That’s right Monopoly is 75 years old. When you play Monopoly, which game piece is your avatar?
If you ever dreamed of winning REAL money from playing Monopoly, here’s your chance:
