As noted by The New York Times, Monopoly's maker, Hasbro, decided that "the journey around the board for one of the eight classic tokens will end soon." With a selection process done through Facebook, voters picked a cat over the iron piece. A cat? Yeah, I'm shocked too...
Scottie dog has a new nemesis in Monopoly after fans from more than 120 countries voted to add a cat token to the property trading board game, replacing the iron, toy maker Hasbro Inc. announced Wednesday. It was the first time that fans have had a say on which of the eight tokens to add and which one to toss.
The results were announced after passionate efforts by fans to save their favourite tokens and businesses eager to capitalize on publicity surrounding pieces that represent their products. The shoe and the wheelbarrow had joined the iron as endangered tokens.
