Iconic Monopoly Piece Gets the Boot

You can still pass “Go” and collect $200 on the Monopoly board,but you won’t be able to do it with the thimble game piece. Voters have rejected the thimble, which has been part of the game since1935. Hasbro started a campaign to select the next generation of game pieces. Hashtags, emojis, and even a rubber duck may replace dogs, cats, and hats in an upcoming version. Hasbro wants to let people choose the eight tokens to be included in the next generation of the game, based on the real streets of Atlantic City, NJ. Winners will be announced on March 19, and will be included in games hitting shelves this August.
