A new Monopoly token is being shipped with game sets to replace the iron which was retired earlier this year. It's a cat. According to Gizmodo on Aug. 28, 2013, the Internet has spoken.
Like it or not, the deed has been done, the kitty cast, and as of this week, all new Monopoly boards will be coming at you new token in tow.
New Monopoly token is mighty cute too. The iron had a good run. It was around for a total of 78 years, not bad. The new cat piece measures 1/2" by 1/2" and seems to have sharper edges than the others, so beware. So how exactly did Hasbro arrive at this epic decision? Read on.
The new Monopoly token was chosen earlier this year by way of a Facebook voting campaign. First you were asked to choose the existing piece that you love the most. The least chosen one would be retired. Then you were asked to pick a replacement. The choices were a guitar, a diamond ring, a helicopter, a robot, or a cat. So it's goodbye iron and hello cat.
