(PCM) The results of the online poll have been tallied and Hasbro has revealed three new game tokens will be introduced to their classic Monopoly board game. This news means that we have lost three classic tokens as well.
The wheelbarrow, boot and thimble tokens will now be replaced with a T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin token in all future versions of the game. In a press release announcing the new tokens Hasbro says, “Fans across the globe have spoken, and the eight tokens set to ‘pass GO’ in the next generation of the Monopoly game are the Scottie dog, top hat, car, battleship, cat, T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin tokens”.
There was an insane amount of voters who took part in the online poll, as there are Monopoly fans young and old all over the globe and over 4.3 million people voted in the “Token Madness” campaign. Hasbro went on to say, “The next generation of tokens clearly represents the interests of our fans around the world and we’re proud to have our iconic game impacted by the people that feel most passionate about playing it.”
