New Monopoly tokens revealed, find out what got the boot

Fans around the world have elected the next generation of Monopoly tokens and new additions to the household game, include a duck, dinosaur and penguin.

Three classic Monopoly pieces are being replaced with three new ones, as the thimble, the boot and the wheelbarrow have enjoyed their last dance. The eight Monopoly tokens that will pass GO in the next generation of the popular board game have been announced.

More than 4 million people in over 100 countries voted, according to a statement released by Hasbro. The Scottie dog received the most votes overall. The thimble, boot and wheelbarrow are being sidelined for now. The classic hat and auto came next, with the ducky, cat, penguin and battleship rounding out the top list.

New monopoly game piece creates an uproar at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis and it's T. rex celebrate the choosing of a T. rex as the newest token.

Long ago, in a far away place, before electronic games were ever even thought of, rainy days would find children gathered around the kitchen table playing board games.

A golden T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin will join five classic tokens: The Scottie dog, hat, race vehicle, cat and battleship.

This isn't the first time fan votes brought a new game piece into play either. Among the 64 contenders, but not making the cut, were a winking emoji and a hashtag. The oh-so-exciting iron was dropped in favor of a cat token.

Had it garnered just 5,700 more votes, players would also have their choice of a tortoise token in the near future.

On the eve of World Monopoly Day, Hasbro has unveiled three new Monopoly pieces (officially known as tokens) that will be added to the iconic game.

"I imagine that the thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens don't resonate as much with today's fans", Berkowitz said.
