THE IRON HAS BEEN VOTED OUT OF THE GAME, CAT GETS ADDED

Fans of the board game Monopoly may want to hold onto their set if they use the ‘Iron’ as their token of choice to play with.   Hasbro, the maker of the game has announced early Wednesday morning that the Iron will be taken out of the game. Replacing the iron is a new piece that resembles a Cat.   This comes after fans voted in an online contest to add the cat to the game and take the iron out.   The results were announced after the boot, wheelbarrow and the iron were in the running for elimination in the final hours of voting.   The vote, which took place on Facebook marks the first time in which the public had the opportunity to pick one of the 8 pieces that have been used in the game.   Monopoly with the new Cat token will come out later this year.   [via CBC]
