At the start of the year the folks over at Hasbro decided to put the fate of all the existing tokens from Monopoly up for a public vote. People were able to vote for their favourite tokens alongside a large amount of brand new ones – 64 in total. No token was declared safe and the classic thimble was announced to be out of the game only a short while ago.
Well now, after more than 4.3 million votes from all over the world, we have the results!
The tokens above will be the standard set which comes will all new editions of Monopoly from this day on wards. The humble Thimble, Wheelbarrow and Boot have all been dropped in favour of new tokens; a Rubber Duck, T-Rex & Penguin.
This marks the second time the game manufacturer has left the fate of it’s tokens up to a public vote, the first occurring in 2013 which saw the Iron replaced with a cat.
