Monopoly just axed the iconic thimble token

Toy maker Hasbro announced on Thursday that it was removing an iconic piece of its famous board game, Monopoly. Fans of the game voted to do away with the “thimble” playing piece. The thimble has been an integral part of the game since being added to Monopoly in 1935.

The move is part of a campaign to select the next generation of game pieces. A complete rollout of new pieces will be announced on March 19 with a new edition of Monopoly hitting shelves in August, Hasbro said. New game pieces could include a hashtag, emoji or rubber duck.
