Depending on your edition of the game, there are either eight, ten or twelve. Junior editions may have only six tokens. The current, classic edition has eight.

The game was originally released in 1935 with four colored wooden pawns. Parker Brothers acquired the rights to Monopoly in 1936, and released the 1937 version with eight metal playing pieces:

  • Iron
  • Race car
  • Top hat
  • Shoe
  • Thimble
  • Lantern (retired early 1950s)
  • Purse (retired early 1950s)
  • Rocking horse(retired early 1950s)

Two more tokens (the Cannon and Battleship) were added in 1940, after another of Parker Brothers' games, "Conflict," proved to be a commercial flop, raising the total number of pieces to ten. Three of the original pieces (lantern, purse, and rocking horse) were retired in the early 1950s and were replaced with three new designs (the dog, the wheelbarrow, and the horse and rider).

In 1995, Hasbro, which had acquired the rights to the game, added two additional pieces for the release of Monopoly Deluxe, raising the total number of pieces to twelve, but only for versions of the Deluxe Edition.

The twelve deluxe pieces were:

  • Iron (1937)
  • Race car (1937)
  • Top hat (1937)
  • Shoe (1937)
  • Thimble (1937)
  • Battleship (1940)
  • Cannon (1940)
  • Scottie dog (early 1950s)
  • Horse and rider (early 1950s)
  • Wheelbarrow (early 1950s)
  • Locomotive (1995)
  • Money bag (1995)

In 2006, one edition of the game, Monopoly Here and Now, got an entirely new look (see related links) to reflect 21st century culture.

Tokens for this set included:

  • McDonald's fries
  • Cell phone
  • Laptop computer
  • Jet plane
  • Labradoodle dog
  • Starbuck's coffee cup
  • New Balance running shoe
  • Minivan

The eight current, classic pieces are:

  • Scottie dog
  • Iron
  • Race car
  • Thimble
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Top hat
  • Horse and rider
  • Shoe

There are also a number of special editions with Disney, Starwars, Simpsons, Sesame Street, and SpongeBob characters, among others. The Junior editions, such as Sesame Street, typically have only six playing pieces.

It depends. When translating between prose (or "natural language") and mathematical expression, you need to be very specific about the meaning of your sentence, for someone else to express it correctly as a mathematic expression. Natural language (whether English or any other) allows for a great deal more ambiguity of meaning than symbolic language (whether chemical, mathematic, computer programming, etc). The way you worded this question, I am not sure whether you are studying the game monopoly itself as it is played (see 1 and 2 below) or whether the playing of monopoly is some kind of variable in a broader experimental context (see number 3 below). Here are three possible answers: 1. "Playing the game monopoly" can be a discrete variable if you measure the progress or duration of the game as a discrete number of turns. 2. "Playing the game monopoly" can be a continuous variable if you measure the progress or duration of the game by the passage of time. 3. If "playing the game of monopoly" is an attribute of one person or one class of people in a study, then it might be a simple attribute-- a constant-- and not a variable at all. (the word "playing" is present-progressive, so if there are no other modifiers specifying a period during which "playing monopoly" occurs, then you can assume the action is constant over the entire course of time you are examining.) If it is a variable attribute, then of course the answer depends on whether you are looking at how long Monopoly was being played (continuous variable) or how many times it was played (discrete variable).

All the redesigns and special branding are intended to increase interest in Monopoly so Hasbro can sell more units. In other words, the changes, like new Monopoly game pieces, are simply done to increase sales and profits, nothing more.Many of the game pieces in the Classic version are the same or similar to the ones Parker Brothers released in 1937, but the current copyright holder, Hasbro, updated the designs for Monopoly Here and Now in 2006.
