Vote on the New Monopoly Pieces?!

Monopoly Pieces

Monopoly Pieces

Hasbro is holding a contest to find out which Monopoly piece is out, soon to be replaced by a brand new piece.

The family board game has been around for nearly eight decades and has changed several times over the years. The original version of the game included a purse, lantern, cannon and rocking horse.

In the 1950′s a horse and rider token was in play, and during WWII metal tokes were replaced by wooden tokens.

This will be the first time however, that players will have a say .

Think that the iron token is a little outdated? Why not turn it into a little kitten or a helicopter? Beginning Tuesday you’ll be able to make your voice heard, as Facebook fans of Monopoly can vote on which piece is eliminated and which one gets tagged in. 

Up for elimination is of course, the iron, the battleship, the racecar, the Scottie dog, the shoe, thimble, top hat, and wheelbarrow. These tokens were mostly introduced in 1935, with the dog and wheelbarrow being added in the early 1950′s. You can choose to vote in a robot, helicopter, kitten, diamond ring, or guitar.

A special $17.99 limited edition of the game called Golden Ticket will be available in Target stores beginning February 15th with golden versions of both the old and new tokens.

The voting for the old and new tokens end on February 5th.

    When I was a kid, I always just stuck the thimble on my pinky while I played. It was sort of my good luck charm. Scottie dog was always my favorite to play though :)
    I wouldn’t mind seeing a guitar or robot added to the game.
