BIG Changes On The Cards For Monopoly

It started with the iron.

Now, none of the Monopoly playing pieces, some of which have been around since the game was introduced during the Great Depression, are safe.

Fans have until January 31 to vote whether Hasbro Inc, which sells the game, keeps the classic playing pieces (pictured below in silver), or completely replaces them with modern, pop culture-inspired pawns (in gold).

The new ones include a hashtag, moped, sunnies, TV, penguin, rubber duck, cowboy boot, monster truck or a thong…among a bunch of others.

In 2013, the iron was replaced with a shiny metal cat.

"Only time will tell if fans will decide to stay with the classics, keep a few favourites or pick an entirely new line-up of tokens," said Hasbro’s Jonathan Berkowitz in a statement.

We have mixed feelings about this but, gee whiz, that rollerskate piece does look pretty rad.
