After a world wide poll of monopoly fans, the company has retired several of their longtime board pieces and added 3 new ones for all of us modern types.
Gone will be the thimble, the boot and the wheelbarrow. Added will be a Tyrannosaurus rex, a rubber ducky and a penguin. All I can say is wow. Certainly a thimble is probably an old fashioned item not very recognizable to younger people in this day and age. But seriously, a rubber ducky? The Scottie dog, top hat, roadster car, cat, and battleship tokens will return.
Congressman Ben Sasse, a very funny guy, wrote on Twitter, "Have you ever known anyone who willingly took the thimble?"
If you play monopoly here is the complete set of tokens you'll see in the new game packages.
