SOS – Save our Scottie: Vote Now! 4

Monopoly holds a place in a lot of peoples hearts as they grew up playing it and now like me play it with their families.  Our family has always loved Monopoly.  We have had so many versions over the years.  We love playing it as a family, especially as the boys are getting older and learning the nuances of the game.  One thing that we still have conflict over is the characters, everyone wants to be the Scottie Dog.
