Hasbro swaps iron for cat as new Monopoly piece
Meow! Game maker Hasbro is ironing out an updated version of Monopoly, the company announced Wednesday.
The board game’s iconic iron is being swapped out with a cat piece at the request of Monopoly enthusiasts. The company launched a campaign that let players vote on a new game piece that would be more “representative of today’s Monopoly players,” according to CNN.
And behold, Monopoly players are also cat fanatics.
Along with the iron, the boot and the wheelbarrow proved to be the least popular pieces, though there is no immediate plan to swap out the others just yet.
The game’s updated version will hit the shelves in mid-to-late 2013.
