Monopoly Announced New Game Pieces

posted by Bodhi - 

Earlier this year, Hasbro announced that there were going to be some big changes to Monopoly's game pieces. Some of the classics were going to get kicked out and replaced by new ones. They put the whole thing to a vote.

The results are in. Three of the classic tokens are out, and three new ones are in. Monopoly is officially getting rid of the thimble, the wheelbarrow and the boot. The new tokens replacing them are a T-rex, a rubber duck and a penguin.

That means the older pieces that managed to get enough votes to survive are the dog, top hat, car, cat and battleship.  

There were dozens of options for new tokens, and the fact that people voted in three fairly basic animal options showed we're not quite as ready for Monopoly to jump into modern times as Hasbro seemed to be.

Some of the possible tokens that didn't get the votes included four different emoji faces, a hashtag sign, a thumbs-up, sunglasses, a Vespa scooter, a monster truck, a cell phone, a TV and a NASCAR race car.
