A Hasbro contest has concluded with three classic Monopoly tokens being replaced by new tokens:
The boot has been booted, the wheelbarrow has been wheeled out, and the thimble got the thumbs down in the latest version of the board game Monopoly. In their place will be a Tyrannosaurus rex, a penguin and a rubber ducky.
Surviving tokens include the dog, battleship, car, top hat, and cat. (Yes, there’s a cat token. They added that one a few yearsa go, when they axed the iron.) I always prefer to play with the car, myself, though I admit that the T-Rex seems like a real crowd pleaser.
