    Monopoly will be adding three new game pieces:


    The next time you sit down with your family to a nice game of Monopoly — and to determine which of your siblings is secretly a cold-blooded sociopath who would shiv you in your sleep for Park Place — you will no longer have the option of dueling to the death over who gets to be the thimble, the wheelbarrow, or the boot.

    Monopoly owner Hasbro have tossed them all aside like so many redundant employees in a gig economy, and are replacing them with the winners of an internet poll: a Tyrannosaurus rex, a penguin, and a rubber ducky.

    Monopoly really is one of the worst board games.

    Every time Monopoly is discussed I have to make this post so here I go:

    5 years ago, I proposed to my girlfriend at the time and became engaged. A few hours later, a game of Monopoly ended my engagement.

    This is why Monopoly is a key part of every relationship, it uncovers everyone's inner beast.
