Hello everyone,

please help me to understand the expression "to be the shoe" in this context:

“So, you want to do something? You want to play Monopoly?”
“Okay, but I want to be the shoe.”
We were still playing at seven o'clock, when the phone rang.

    In the game of Monopoly, each player has a small counter/token/figure that he uses to show his progress on the board. One of these figurines is a shoe.

    Monopoly tokens:



    Not all monopoly sets have the same set of tokens. The shoe seems to be part of the American set.
