Monopoly to get new lineup of tokens
PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — The classic Monopoly game is set for its most significant change in decades after fans voted to add a new token to replace the shoe, wheelbarrow or iron after they received the least support in an online contest.
Toy maker Hasbro Inc. will announce the new token lineup Wednesday after fans cast their final ballots to determine which piece to add and which of the existing tokens to replace.
The eight tokens identify the players and have changed quite a lot since Parker Brothers bought the game from its original designer in 1935.
The voting closed just before midnight Tuesday. Rhode Island-based Hasbro says the wheelbarrow, shoe and iron were neck and neck for elimination through the Save Your Token Campaign.
The new addition will be a robot, diamond ring, cat, helicopter or guitar.
