The new Monopoly token is...a cat!
On Wednesday, Hasbro announced that after a vicious Hunger Games-like Facebook campaign, the unpopular Monopoly Iron will be replaced with the cooler Monopoly Cat (much to the Monopoly Scottie's dismay).
Launched in January, Save Your Token asked Facebook fans to vote for which gamepiece they liked the most. The loser would be swapped for a cat, diamond ring, guitar, helicopter, or toy robot.
The household tool joins a historic group of Monopoly rejects, along with a lantern, purse, rocking horse, and horse and rider.
