T-Rex, Rubber Ducky, Penguin Replace Classic Monopoly Pieces

Hasbro announced the newest edition of Monopoly will ditch the classic wheelbarrow, boot and thimble tokens, and introduce the T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin pieces selected by a fan vote to join five other classic pieces. More than 4.3 million people voted in the “Token Madness” campaign, which asked fans to select a new lineup from a mixture of 64 pieces including eight Monopoly classics and 56 new choices including a hashtag, emoji or computer. Some businesses and other large groups launched campaigns for specific pieces including the New England Zoo, which encouraged fans to share the hashtag #VotePenguin to have the new piece included in the game. Others, such as car-sharing service Zipcar, campaigned to keep old pieces like the car in the game.​
