(KTVI) – Which Monopoly piece will get the boot? Hasbro is asking fans of Monopoly to choose which piece will be replace by a new token.
The race car, iron, Scottie dog, boot, battleship, thimble, wheelbarrow, top hat, and cannon have all been iconic parts of the board game for decades. Now Hasbro says it’s time for a new piece.
Fans have until February 5 to vote using Facebook or Twitter on which token should “go to jail.” They can use Monopoly’s Facebook Page or the hashtag #tokenvote to save their favorite token. The tokens haven’t changed since the 1950s.
Once the votes are counted, Hasbro will discontinue the old Monopoly and replaced with a new version and a new token.
