For the second time in four years, Monopoly is shaking up the classic board game of buying properties, luxury taxes and owning railroads — by retiring one of its classic tokens!
Monopoly is making room for a new game piece, or "token" as it's called, by getting rid of an old classic.
Hasbro revealed that the thimble is being retired from the iconic board game. The thimble token is seen as being outdated, just as the other retired pieces like the iron, the horse-and-rider and the howitzer were. Hasbro recently conducted an online poll where fans could vote on a new replacement token. The winner will be announced on March 19th, which is World Monopoly Day.
