Monopoly fans vote to toss 1 token, add new piece

The Associated Press, Tuesday, February 5, 2013, 2:52pm (PST)

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — The end is near for the shoe, wheelbarrow or iron in the classic Monopoly game as fans vote in the final hours on which token to eliminate and which piece to replace it.

The eight tokens identify the players and have changed quite a lot since Parker Brothers bought the game from its original designer in 1935. The latest changes mark the first time that fans have a say on which piece to add and which one to toss.

The voting on Facebook is scheduled to close just before midnight Tuesday.

So far, the wheelbarrow, shoe and iron are neck and neck for elimination. Pawtucket, R.I.-based toy maker Hasbro Inc. will announce the new addition Wednesday morning.

Fans from more than 120 countries have voted.
