Your mother probably told you that it really didn't matter which Monopoly game piece you chose, but any die-hard fan knows this isn't true. When you or your kids break out the box, everyone lunges for the one special token that they covet. (And now there's a new piece to fight over: A cat will replace the iron in new editions of the classic board game.) So what does your choice say about you? Here's what your game piece reveals about your personality.
Scotty, the Dog
Isn't he so cute? He is, but that's not why you reach for this game piece every time. You are loyal, trustworthy and warm in spirit. You love being with other people and seeing others smile. Although you play your hardest, you also enjoy seeing others do well.
You are competitive and your only goal is to win. (Every. Single. Time.) Winning is, of course, important to everyone playing a board game, but, for you, there is no other option. You are a cutthroat landlord and take pleasure in collecting rents -- particularly if you're taking another player's last dollars.
The Race Car
Vroom! Vroom! Hey, hot rod! You are a sporty person who loves the rush of adrenaline -- whether it's playing a fast-paced sport or hitting the road for a new adventure. Since you crave speed, you're happiest when everyone's turns are kept short and sweet.
The Horse and Rider
If the bucking bronco -- and his rider -- appeal to you, you're an adventure seeker who loves a thrill. Unafraid of a challenge, you get tunnel vision when it's your turn. And if it doesn't work out? Well, your next turn could be your big break.
You love creating things, whether it's sewing a baby blanket or building a Monopoly empire. You're detail-oriented as well, so you carefully consider the implications for the future before making a move or a buying a piece of propery. If that means that the game moves more slowly, so be it.
