Monopoly Dumps Iron Player Piece For Cat After Internet Vote

The iconic money-pressing piece will make way for a new feline friend on the Monopoly board.

The iron player piece was at the bottom of the vote in Hasbro’s online vote at which token to save and which to drop. The new token was inducted through another vote to replace the piece in the form of a robot, a chopper, a diamond ring, a guitar and the cat, which eventually won.

I thought the robot would be cooler. We already have an animal piece in the form of a Scottish Dog. This is basically what happens when you leave the Internet to decide on things like these, but I haven’t seen any of the original pieces since my last Monopoly was in the form of the Millennium Edition.

The new version of Monopoly with its set of updated tokens will come out later this year.
