In Monopoly it's either the shoe or pot of gold or dog etc.

In Candyland it's little people.

The pieces you move around in a board game.

What's the proper term for those pieces?

Game piece is correct. I've also heard token.

Game piece could refer to anything, not just the pieces you move. Token is the term I've always heard.
