Iron Out The Monopoly Board

One for Monopoly fans.

Fans have been voting all month on an online hasbro poll, to save their favourite Monopoly pieces from being scrapped. Also on the agenda was suggested replacement pieces.

Top of the popularity stakes for a new piece, was a cat; followed closely by a robot, helicopter, diamond ring and a guitar.

The poll ended for which pieces to scrap with the Scottie dog top and poor old Iron at the bottom, in the relegation zone.

It is the first time fans have had a say on which of the eight tokens to keep and which to lose.

The iron will now be scrapped in favour of the new cat piece.

The iron was one of the original game pieces introduced by the Parker Brothers in 1935, when the game first came out.  The Scottie dog and wheelbarrow were added in the early 1950s.

If you think it sacrilige, previous original pieces retired in the 1950s included a lantern, a purse and a rocking horse.

New cat including Monopoly boards will come out later this year.
