Cat people and dog people can now duke it out on the Monopoly board. After an online vote, Hasbro, which makesthe iconic game, has replaced the iron game piece with a cat token. Other contenders for the new piece were a diamond ring, a toy robot, a guitar and a helicopter, but the cat won out with 31 percent of the vote. Meanwhile, fans showed the least interest in the iron (and the most interest in the dog), so the iron is now a token of the past. The cat will first appear in the latest version of the game, due out later this year.
Previous Monopoly tokens eliminated from the game include the lantern, the purse and the rocking horse.
The current Monopoly tokens will now be the cat, the dog, the wheelbarrow, the shoe, the battleship, the thimble, the top hat and the racecar.
I would have voted for the guitar to be the new game piece...
