The new Monopoly tokens are a T-rex, penguin and rubber ducky.
Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of marketing for Hasbro Gaming, said the new tokens would be available in Monopoly games sold in September.
At the start of the year, Hasbro announced it was putting the future of Monopoly into the hands of people on the internet. Today's unveiling of the new tokens confirms the death of two more long-beloved tokens.
As a result of a worldwide fan vote, three original game pieces have been removed from Hasbro's classic board game.
Over four million votes were cast over 100 countries. Now that the results have been decided, the full lineup will include a battleship, race auto, top hat, Scottie dog (obviously the best token), cat, T. rex, duck, and penguin. In January, voters weighed in on the eight tokens they wanted to see included in Monopoly's next iteration. At least we have a cat and a T-rex now. The classic hat and vehicle came next, with the ducky, cat, penguin and battleship rounding out the top list.Читайте также: USA commander signals larger, longer United States presence in Syria
The other original objects in the game were an iron, purse, lantern, race vehicle, top hat, battleship, cannon and a rocking horse.
Prior to this revision, the most recent lineup change occurred when the cat was swapped in for the iron.
Some of the success of the tokens making their way into, or keeping their spot in the MONOPOLY game can be attributed to many brands and organizations campaigning for select tokens. Those five will be joined by the three new tokens later this year.
Monopoly was released in 1935 and World Monopoly Day is on March 19.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
