Monopoly is Getting Rid of One of Its Famous Game Pieces – Vote For Your Favorite Now!

Facebook / Monopoly

In case you didn’t see this when it made Twitter and Facebook almost explode in anger yesterday, Monopoly is trying to DESTROY YOUR CHILDHOOD!

Hasbro has announced that they are going to be killing off one of the iconic Monopoly game pieces. As of this summer, either the shoe, thimble, race car, iron, top hat, Scottie dog, battleship, or wheelbarrow is going to be GONE.

It will be replaced by either a toy robot, helicopter, cat, guitar, or diamond ring.

According to a board game expert, the wheelbarrow has the best chance of being eliminated, followed by the thimble and battleship. The race car and Scottie dog have the best chance of surviving.

The original game pieces were the shoe, thimble, race car, iron, top hat, battleship, cannon and horse. The dog and wheelbarrow were added in the ’50s. The cannon and horse were eliminated in the late ’90s.

You can vote on the Monopoly Facebook page for which token to save.

I’m not going to do that, because it’s playing right into their hand. Instead I’m going to hoard copies of the game now and sell them to purists on eBay!
