New Monopoly game piece - and good-bye, iron

It's the CAT.



http://lifeinc.today.com/_news/2013/...f-the-box?lite

Monopoly reveals newest game token (and the one kicked out of the box)
By Lauren Sullivan, TODAY

The results are in! Over the past month, hundreds of thousands of Monopoly fans worldwide voted for which new token should replace one of the iconic ones being retired after countless journeys past Go. After a hard-fought campaign, representatives revealed the newest game piece Wednesday morning on TODAY.

(Drum roll, please.)

Monopolys newest token is&

The cat!

To rally players to show their support for their favorite tokens, Hasbro launched a Facebook app. While the results among the 250,000 votes on TODAY.coms live poll were close, the feline edged out its competition: the robot, diamond ring, helicopter and guitar.

Its sad news for some, as the sly cat will replace one of the games venerable pieces, which has also been chosen by voters. The boot, iron and wheelbarrow were tied for last place until Tuesday night when the wheelbarrow and shoe hung on and the iron got the boot.

NOOO! I used to take the iron or thimble as no one else wanted them. Other people always grabbed the best pieces first. I do like the cat, but that means I'll be stuck with the wheelbarrow or some other lame piece now.

The new cat is rather pretty. Really don't care one way or another as far as the iron.

LOVE IT! no more fighting over who gets to be the dog. The only that would have been even better would have been a HORSE!

My sister always picked the horse when we were kids! Did they replace that one too?



I always liked the iron or the dog. The cat is cute.

I think the horse is now a submarine.

I still have my Monopoly game from when I was a kid, and it has the horse. I liked being the Scottie dog. . When we play now, we usually use a Disney themed game.

The cat is cute but I would love to find the Doctor Who themed version of the game if there is one.

I like the wheelbarrow so I'm glad that it survived. The cat is pretty.
