Hasbro Unveils New Monopoly Token

It’s the end of an era. Hasbro has officially retired the iron token from Monopoly.

Back in January, the toy company asked fans to cast their vote on which of the classic board game’s pieces to save from the chopping block. Not surprisingly, the iron received the fewest votes. I’m pretty sure the thimble was in the running as well. I can’t even remember a time when I chose either of those tokens when playing the game.

At the same time, Hasbro asked voters to pick a replacement for the retired game piece. The choices were a cat, guitar, helicopter, robot and diamond ring. Personally, I was rooting for the robot. Find out which piece beat out the competition below.

Are you bummed that the iron was phased out? Do you think the cat was the “purrfect” replacement? If you want a laugh, be sure to read Gizmodo’s hilarious review of the new token. Sound off below.
