People Are Not Happy After Monopoly Ditches Iconic Game Piece
An iconic Monopoly game piece has received the boot so-to-speak.
The makers of the popular board game have decided to part ways with the thimble after it became obvious it was the least popular game piece.
Before making the decision, Hasbro asked their fans to vote in the Monopoly Token Madness campaign, which generated four million votes.
While fans of the iconic piece may be sad, they can rest assure that a new game piece will soon be unveiled.
While the new piece has not been decided yet, according to The Sun, the thimble will be replaced by either an emoji, hashtag, horse, helicopter, or a dinosaur.
Which new piece are you rooting for?
