Monopoly Is Giving Three Classic Pieces the Boot

More than 4.3 million of you, from 146 countries, voted and the new Monopoly pieces have now been revealed. It launched the Monopoly Vote website and asked players to vote for which pieces they wanted to see in future versions of the game.

We now know what tokens will grace the board of the latest version of Monopoly. The Scottie dog walked away with the most votes with 212,476, followed closely by the T. rex with 207,954.

Monopoly fans had 64 possible options to pick from, including 56 new pieces, that included the hashtag, emoji and computer. Of the original 10 tokens from 1937, that leaves only the top hat, battleship, and race auto.

What Is The Alternative Minimum Tax?
Were it not for the AMT, President Trump would have avoided all but a few million dollars of his 2005 tax bill. The AMT was implemented back in 1969 to place a cap on the amount of loopholes the extremely wealthy can use.

Monopoly's staid stable of tokens is in for a shakeup, and the boot is getting the boot. Nothing else will change - the games rules will stay the same, meaning yes you do need to auction property and there's no such thing as a money stash under Free Parking. The New England Aquarium rallied fans of their adorable Penguin population to #VotePenguin, and hosted MR. MONOPOLY to meet the penguins on the day the vote kicked off, which was broadcasted via Facebook live to the MONOPOLY brand's almost 11 million Facebook fans.

Tyrannosaurus rex and rubber ducky wowed fans of the popular board game.

They'll replaced by new tokens, a rubber ducky, penguin, and T. rex, that will be in a new game this fall.

Hasbro held a worldwide vote to decide the fate of the current Monopoly tokens. (The piece was retired in 2007.) And in 2013, a cat token was chosen over a helicopter, diamond ring and robot.

The votes are in and the thimble, wheelbarrow and boot are out.

The token announcement comes ahead of World Monopoly Day, March 19.
