Monopoly Fans Have Spoken! Say Goodbye to the Thimble and Hello to the T-Rex

For the past few months, fans of the classic game board game, MONOPOLY, have been casting their votes about which pieces would stay, and which ones would get the boot when it comes to the next generation of the game. While we already knew the iconic thimble didn’t make the cut, Hasbro has officially announced the results of the rest of the poll.

Drumroll, please…

 

 

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!

While many of the iconic tokens are breathing a sigh of relief, the iconic thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens didn’t make the cut and they will not be in the next generation of the game, available this fall, as theT-rex, rubber ducky, and penguin tokens will take their place.
