Voting opens for new Monopoly pieces, potentials include emojis and hashtag


Published in Weird News

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (UPI) -- Rhode Island-based game maker Hasbro is asking the Internet to vote on new game pieces for the latest edition of Monopoly -- and none of the original pieces are safe.

The Pawtucket-based company launched voting Tuesday on VoteMonopoly.com, allowing Internet users to vote on which eight game pieces will make it into the next edition of the game.

The company said none of the current eight pieces -- Scottie dog, top hat, car, thimble, boot, wheelbarrow, battleship, and cat -- are safe in the voting, which also includes 56 potential new pieces.

The proposed new pieces include emojis, a dinosaur, a hashtag, a flip-flop, a TV, an early-1990s-style cellphone, and a desktop controller.

The voting is scheduled to last through Jan. 31, and the winning pieces are expected to be announced on March 19 for World Monopoly Day.
