Can we get a moment of silence in remembrance of the iron Monopoly token?

(insert moment of silence here)

As you may have read, Hasbro is retiring the iron after a heated online election, and it’s being replaced with a cat token. We’re all for cats, but we can’t help but mourn the noble iron – a classic token and part of the game since the 1930’s.

We all play games of one sort of another, whether they’re of the board or video kind. Mankind’s been gaming in one form or another since time immemorial; several different board games were found in the tombs of Egypt’s pharaohs and the Chinese game of Wei-qi has been around (with minimal rule changes) since 2300 BC.

You already know that we sell anything (including the kitchen sink), so it won’t surprise you to know that we list board games, too: look in Toys (or Collectibles for old or rare ones). And video games? Got ’em too: everything from 8-bit to Wii. When it comes to selling, we don’t play around!
