Hasbro aims to jazz up Monopoly with new token


AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- The gig is almost up for one of the eight Monopoly tokens. But which will it be? Iron? Thimble? Top Hat?

Or another of their board game buddies?

Hasbro is holding a Facebook contest to eliminate one of the eight tokens that identify the players and introduce a new one. Possible new tokens include a cat, diamond ring, guitar, toy robot and helicopter

So if you are tired of the iron token and would rather be represented by a robot, here's your chance to make those wishes known.

Beginning Tuesday, Facebook fans of monopoly can vote on which piece to eliminate and which one to add.

The voting ends Feb. 5.

This is funny! Check out "Free Parking" new 2013 MONOPOLY "PARODY/SPOOF!" -

Whatever it is...they should

Whatever it is...they should make all of them bigger then a baseball so kids can't swallow 'em.
True...the board would have to be bigger then a kitchen table...but you could eat dinner off of it when not in use for the game.
Bet they add a "cell phone" ;-)
The End!
PS: Maybe the tokens should be Republican and Democrats tokens. That would make the adults play the game more too...and no more downsizing of the company's tokens...and better benefits for the employees of Monopoly. They could add Wall Street to the game body would buy it, but see if the Republican or Democrat token would destroy it first.
