Over the past month, Hasbro launched a worldwide Internet poll on their Facebook page allowing Monopoly fans to cast their vote on which piece to replace. The pieces that were at risk were the dog, car, shoe, iron, thimble, and wheelbarrow, which could be replaced for a cat, ring, guitar, helicopter, or robot.
Announced earlier today, the cat edged against the rest of the pieces. Hasbro even announced it on Facebook with a festive video. If you have an old Monopoly board with the iron, keep it and maybe even have a drink for the old pal. If you love the iron, you can still buy the Monopoly game with the iron before it’s forever gone.
What are your thoughts about this announcement? Are you happy to see the iron token go? Sound off in the comments.
