Monopoly Game Dumps Three of Its Venerable Game Tokens, Replaces Them With Three New Pieces

Mar 17, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Hasbro announced that its Monopoly game will no longer have three of the game pieces that have long been a part of the game: the wheelbarrow, the thimble and the boot.

In their place, the game will add a T-Rex, a rubber ducky and a penguin to the lineup.

The Scottie dog, top hat, car, battleship and cat will remain a part of the game.

USA Today reports: “The iconic game pieces met their fate after millions of fans voted on which eight tokens they’d like to see in the next version of the game during Monopoly Token Madness Vote in January, Hasbro said in a statement.”

The changes will be made to the game this fall.

“The last time a token was dropped and a new one was added was in 2013. The oh-so-exciting iron was dropped in favor of a cat token. The Scottie dog was added in 1950,” USA Today notes.
