Monopoly is getting rid of the thimble token

Monopoly says goodbye to iconic thimble token

See which classic token Monopoly eliminated after a public vote

"We were a little bit surprised that the thimble got among the lowest votes because it's been in the game for so long", Senior Marketing VP for Hasbro Gaming Jonathan Berkowitz told CNN Money.

The thimble is being scrapped from the Monopoly game after voters rejected the piece.

The game's maker, Hasbro, said despite being an integral part of day-to-day life when the token was originally added to the game in 1935, the lucky Thimble has lost its "shine" with today's fans.

Besides the jettisoned thimble, Monopoly's other pieces include a dog, shoe, top hat, wheelbarrow, cat, race vehicle and battleship.

Winning tokens will be announced on March 19th which happens to be World Monopoly Day. The move is part of a campaign to select the next generation of game pieces.

After more than 80 years, the classic playing piece, the thimble, is being dropped in new versions of the Monopoly board game. Most recently, Hasbro released a cashless version of the game, Monopoly Ultimate Banking, which used bank cards and an electronic banking unit instead of paper bills.

Although it may seem like an abomination, this isn't the first time Monopoly has shaken things up. The remaining pieces still making their way around the boards are the cat (which replaced the iron), the Scottish Terrier, the battleship, the automobile, the top hat, the wheelbarrow, and the shoe.
