In January, the game's maker, Hasbro, opened up fan voting on what it was calling Monopoly Token Madness for users to select new tokens for the game. "Despite being an integral part of day-to-day life when the token was originally added to the game in 1935, the lucky Thimble has lost its "shine" with today's fans, and will be retired from the game", the company explained. The iron got the boot in 2013 when the cat was chosen to replace it.
If you're keeping score, the original six were the top hat, thimble, iron, shoe, battleship and cannon. The original tokens were the iron, purse, lantern, race auto, thimble, boot, top hat, battleship, cannon and rocking horse.
At different times there have also been a sack of money, purse, rocking horse, lantern, and horse and rider. Among the possibilities: hashtag, penguin, rubber duck, TV, watch and an emoji of Mr. Monopoly. The new tokens will be gold colored, CNN reported. After tallying the 4 million votes, Hasbro announced Thursday that they're discontinuing the thimble in the next version of the game.
Updating the traditional Monopoly game makes sense for Hasbro, which saw a resurgence in board game sales previous year.
