There Are Three New Monopoly Tokens In Town - Can You Guess Which Ones Got The Boot?

What do a penguin, a rubber ducky and a Tyrannosaurus rex have in common?

They’ll all have the opportunity to pass Go and collect $200 come fall.   

The three symbols were chosen to replace the classic boot, wheelbarrow and thimble in Monopoly, after 4.3 million people from 146 countries weighed in on which tokens they wanted to see in future versions of the classic Hasbro board game.

"While I'm sad to see the iconic thimble, boot, and wheelbarrow tokens go, it will be fun to have some new, fan-sourced tokens in the mix," said Jonathan Berkowitz, Hasbro's senior vice president of marketing.

"Personally, I've always especially liked the boot token, but I'm excited to move onto the T-Rex."

There were 64 contenders in all, including a winking emoji, a hashtag, a clunky old-school cellphone and a pair of bunny slippers.

Had it garnered just 5,700 more votes, players would also have their choice of a tortoise token in the near future. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a rain boot got the least amount of support with a measly 7,239 votes.

The existing Scottish Terrier, battleship, racecar, top hat and cat tokens are here to stay (for now.)

The game’s first version was released in 1935, when its token library included an iron, purse, lantern, racecar, thimble, shoe, top hat, battleship, cannon and a rocking horse.
