http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/monopoly-players-vote-tokens-article-1.1236376

At nearly 80 years old, Monopoly is set to retire one of its eight classic tokens. And its up to fans to choose which ones will remain on the board to pass "GO."

The Hasbro-owned game kicked off its "Save Your Token" campaign Wednesday, asking players to vote for the tokens they want to keep. The racecar, iron, Scottie dog, wheelbarrow, shoe, top hat, thimble and battleship are at all risk for the ax.

The iconic game piece with the least amount of votes will be sent to the slammer forever, with no "Get Out of Jail Free" card in sight. It will be replaced by one of Monopoly's newly-proposed tokens: a toy robot, helicopter, cat, guitar or diamond ring.


I say give "The Boot" the boot, and save "Scottie the Scottie"

What say U?

If the iron goes I'll never play Monopoly again. What a shame that would be since we have had a game running for about 20 years.

We write down EVERYTHING anyone has and where they were on the board. The next time we play we refer to the list, hand out the houses and hotels and put them where they last were, give out the money, and pick up where we left off.
