The tokens included in the original Monopoly game are about to change. Well, at least one of them. Fans of the game are being asked to vote on Facebook for their favorite token. The token that receives the fewest votes will be “placed in jail” forever. Monopoly has been a popular board game for more 80 years and now comes in wide variety of editions. This vote will only effect the traditional game.
Voters are also asked to choose a new token from a selection of five all new tokens. The five tokens include a diamond ring, a cat, a helicopter, a robot or a guitar. The piece which receives the most votes will be added to the game.
As of today, the wheel barrow and iron are in danger of being removed so head over to Facebook to save your favorite token. You are allowed to vote once per day until voting ends on February 5. The new token will be unveiled on February 6.
I have heard from several people in Joplin that looking for a new car is nearly impossible. Many of the second-hand dealers in the area have inflated their prices since they know how many people are desperate to buy a new vehicle to replace one lost in the tornado. I have heard examples of 1997 model vehicles selling for $17,000. What these dealers are doing is ILLEGAL and they should be reported. The Missouri Attorney General has a hotline setup to report such businesses. Also, as part of the disaster relief, the Attorney General’s office has sent investigators to Joplin to look for price gouging.
If you or someone you know is a victim of price gouging (on anything), or if you see it, REPORT IT! These dealers are taking advantage of the citizens of Joplin and deserve whatever punishment is handed down to them.
To report a price gouger call 1-800-392-8222.
