Agreed. I didn't think they should have changed any of the pieces, but if they had already made up their minds to do it, then why not something like a cell phone? All that hoopla just for a cat piece?

I love cats. I'll take a cat over an iron any day!



"It is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God...and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord." - Abraham Lincoln

Proclamation of a National Fast-Day, March 30, 1863.
Quoted in Marion Mills Miller, ed., Life and Works of Abraham Lincoln, Centenary Edition, In Nine Volumes: Volume VI (New York: The Current Literature Publishing Co., 1907), p. 156.

It wasn't just a random decision by the PTB, but the result of voting by players in many countries apparently.

See other post, where I basically said,
I think it's LAME.
I didn't want something "new" either like a cell phone. I like retro and wanted the robot.

'The People' decided so obviously the majority wanted a cat!

Well, they always had a dog so it's about time they had a cat. Besides, I hate ironing.

Seriously? A cell phone? Can you imagine if they had done that in 1995, and put one of those honking cell phones with the antenna in? Cell phone design changes every 10 minutes. Cats don't. I'm glad for the cat to go with the dog.

(However, my first choice was a robot, see my siggy below. Love robots!)

Well, I really wanted the robot, but I guess since we already have a dog, having a cat makes everything all fair and square.

I will say that the iron was my least favorite piece.


Mind you, I'm going to keep my iron piece forever, anyway, just because I'm a dork.


Just like I saved those poor retired Crayola crayons.

Well, I'm a cat person, and given what the choices were, I'd have picked the cat too. I think it's cute!
