Not long ago the Monopoly tokens were put up to a vote to see which ones would survive to get a place in the new version and which would be replaced. Today the Monopoly Token Madness vote results have been revealed.
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; they will not be in the next generation of the game.
During the MONOPOLY Token Madness vote, January 10 – 31, fans across 146 countries selected the eight tokens they hoped to see in the next generation of the game from a list of 64 contenders – drawing more than 4.3 million votes.
Fans can visit Facebook.com/Monopoly, @HasbroNews on Twitter, and @Hasbro on Instagram (#MonopolyVote) to welcome the new tokens into the next generation of the game, and to tip their top hats to the thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens.
As much as some people complain about Monopoly, the contest still gathered 4.3 million votes. Linux users should also be happy with the inclusion of a penguin to the lineup. You can see all of the winners below.
