BOARD GAME TO UNDERGO CHANGES

(AP) – Monopoly purists may not be thrilled that the thimble, which has been
part of the popular board game since 1935, is being phased out.

Yes, you can still pass "Go" and collect $200 on the Monopoly board, but
soon you may see hashtags, emojis and even a rubber duck in the new
version of the game.

Voters rejected the thimble as Hasbro tries to update the board game’s
pieces for the next generation of players.

Back in 2013, Hasbro Inc. dropped another game piece, the iron, from
Monopoly.

Hasbro Inc. is holding a worldwide contest to let people choose the eight
tokens to be included in the next generation of the property acquisition
game, based on the real streets of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Winners will be announced March 19, and will be included in games hitting
shelves this August.
