Monopoly May Soon Have Emojis And Hashtags As Tokens Depending On Vote
Fans of the classic game Monopoly may have mixed views with the news that Hasbro is asking people to vote on a new set of tokens.
Only eight tokens will be chosen to replace the existing tokens which are the Scottie the dog, battleship, boot, car, cat, thimble, top hat, wheelbarrow tokens. All eight current tokens will be part of the pool.
Hasbro is letting voters choose among 56 possible tokens. Among the choices are an old cellphone, TV, computer, the hashtag symbol and a number of emojis which have been some sort of symbols for modern-day technology.
The emoji tokens are the wink face, thumbs up, Mr. Monopoly, smiley face, kissy face, and crying with laughter emojis.
The other choices are scooter, sunglasses, horse, wheel, key, typewriter, moneyclip, jetski, life preserver, surf board, sailboat, fire, T-Rex, trumpet, gramophone, plane, beach ball, roller skate, bicycle, motorbike, helicopter, camera, monster truck, race car, city boat, tortoise, F1 race car, watch, cuff links, rotary phone, cowboy hat, bowtie, bunny slipper, cowboy boot, tennis shoe, shoe, flip flop, rain boot, pocket watch, ducky, bath, penguin, sliced bread, fish, rabbit, and rooster.
The voting process in ongoing and will last until the last day of January.
Many players may have fallen in love with the current tokens and it may be quite sad to see them go. This was the same sentiments of some players when Hasbro last replaced its tokens back in 2013 when it asked Monopoly fans to also vote for their new favorites through Facebook. At the end of the voting process, the iconic iron was let go in favor of the cat token which beat out the likes of a guitar, helicopter, ring, and a robot.
