It says if you play Monopoly often enough to have a favorite token, you're a bore.

We have Monopoly: Deluxe Edition, which also includes a locomotive, which I normally play as. If not the locomotive, then the battleship or top hat.

I don't think this article is all that accurate.

The battleship, I am not more cutthroat than anyone else in Monopoly, I just like to imagine myself as a retired Navy man who has gotten into the real estate game. Probably wearing a peacoat in the winter and being addressed as "Captain" by his peers at his gaming club.

Same with the top hat. I find that it says, "I like to be formal, but I'm here to party."

Well, as it happens, the description (battleship) was accurate for me, but I'm sure it's got about the same level of scientific accuracy as horoscopes and the like.

Funny little read anyway, though. Thanks for sharing.

The battleship allows me to sink the competition.
