Public shares in retiring a Monopoly token
PAWTUCKET, R.I. — The end is near for the shoe, wheelbarrow or iron in the classic Monopoly game.
Fans concluded voting Tuesday night just before midnight on which token to eliminate and which piece would replace it.
The eight tokens that identify the players on the board have changed quite a lot since Parker Brothers bought the game from its original designer in 1935. But these latest changes mark the first time that fans have a say on which piece to add and which one to toss.
The voting took place on Facebook. As of Tuesday afternoon, the wheelbarrow, shoe and iron were neck-and-neck for elimination. Pawtucket, R.I.-based toy maker Hasbro Inc. plans to announce the new addition Wednesday morning.
According to the company, fans from more than 120 countries have taken the time to vote. —
