Now that you’re done panicking about the extinction of Monopoly’s thimble,it’s time to introduce the replacements. Buzz60’s Amanda Kabbabe (@kabbaber) has more.
Say goodbye to the thimble, the boot and the wheelbarrow, Monopoly fans. There are new tokens in town.
Hasbro, the maker of the real-estate-trading board game, on Friday announced the results of a poll that asked fans in more than 100 countries to choose which tokens will circle the board in the next Monopoly game coming out in the fall.
The Scottie dog, top hat, roadster car, cat, and battleship tokens will return. But the boot got the boot, and so did the wheelbarrow and the thimble.
The three tokens will be replaced with a Tyrannosaurus rex, a rubber ducky and a penguin, the company said. The announcement came just before World Monopoly Day on Sunday.
In a statement, Jonathan Berkowitz, a senior vice president at Hasbro Gaming, said that the “global Monopoly community has spoken.”
