Cat replaces the iron in Monopoly after fan vote

Posted: Updated:

 

Attention, fans of Monopoly!  The game of Monopoly just got a new token, and it looks like a cat token will replace the iron in the game.  Toy maker Hasbro Inc. announced the changes today, after Monopoly fans voted on what to add and what to eliminate on Facebook. The AP reports that this is the first time that fans have been able to have a say.  It was called the "save Your Token" campaign.

Parker Brothers bought the game from its original designer in 1935, and the eight tokens have changed quite a bit since then.    Monopoly has more than 10 million Facebook fans.   It was a dead heat for the iron, wheelbarrow and shoe, with fans from more than 120 countries voting.
