Monopoly fans vote to add new token and retire older one
Washington, Feb. 6 : The end is near for the shoe, wheelbarrow or iron in the iconic Monopoly game, as the voting has ended on which token to eliminate and which piece to replace it.
The eight tokens have changed a lot since Parker Brothers bought the game from its creator in 1935.
The latest change marks the first time that fans have had a say on which piece to add and which one to retire, Fox News reported.
The voting on Facebook was scheduled to close just before midnight on Tuesday.
So far, the wheelbarrow, shoe and iron are going neck and neck for elimination.
Toy maker Hasbro Inc. will announce the new addition on Wednesday morning.
Fans from more than 120 countries have taken part in the voting process.
