You Get To Pick a New Token for Monopoly
Which ones will stay and which one will go? ‘Monopoly’ will be replacing one of their iconic game pieces and you get to choose the new one.
Hasbro is asking fans to vote on which of its eight game tokens should remain and which token should be retired. ‘Monopoly’ kicked off its ‘Save Your Token’ campaign this week letting players vote on-line. Which token would you keep: the race car, iron, Scottie dog, wheelbarrow, shoe, top hat, thimble or battleship. They’re all at risk for getting the boot. Wait a minute, there is no boot.
The piece with the least amount of votes will be permanently retired with no ‘Chance’ card or ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card to bring it back.
The replacement will be one of two newly-proposed tokens: a toy robot, helicopter, cat, guitar or diamond ring.
Fans have up until Feb. 5 to vote on either Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #tokenvote.
