    It still doesn’t make sense to me why they would decide to do away with the iron. There aren’t a lot of that type of roadster around anymore either, or cannons.

    I liked them all; not sure why they picked a cat.

    If I ever play Monopoly again, I think I’ll use junk from around the house instead of the supplied tokens.

    The New Jersey could hit targets 29 miles inland, and unlike aircraft, could keep it up, hour after hour. Add the tomahawk launchers an it was still a formidable machine when it was decommissioned.
    .
    During the cold war, there was thought of arming them with nukes. The 16 inch shells were large enough for small fusion explosives. Imagine a barrage of 100kt shells.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    The problem there is obvious. You would have nukes going off a maximum of 29 miles from YOU.

    I agree with you, Iron. I voted for the ousting of the thimble, but you were declared the loser….

    Ever hear of the Davy Crockett? It was a tactical nuke designed to be fired from a recoilless rifle.
    Imagine being the poor shmuck ordered to fire that?

    I had seen this one before: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=4RKXuQ8lOe8#t=53s


    But not the Davy Crockett.

    But now the game won’t supply any iron.

    They’ll have to change the nutrition labels.


    What?

    Not that much of a problem. Even large fusion bombs have a blast radius much less than 29 miles..

    Growing up, we played my Dad’s first edition Monopoly game. I hate to think what it’d be worth today if it hadn’t been played to death over the decades! Half the original tokens were missing, so I never knew there was supposed to be an iron. Or racecar. The rules sheet was crumbling, so we made up our own rules. I still don’t know what you’re supposed to do on Free Parking, but I like what we used it for!

    so, in other words….this is the end of the Iron Age…..

    Everybody should watch those clips. They are SCARY. Such calm “rationalization” about the “Davey Crockett” being a “desperation weapon” at best.!?!?!? (And yours was/is not the only country making these damn things.)

    It’s ironic that they chose to get rid of the iron.

    or, make your own tokens. we did as a kids, because at least one of those tokens and many of the houses and hotels were missing.
