New Piece, Please

Patrick Brady, Writer

The classic game Monopoly has been played for forever. People have been “going directly to jail” and “passing go” with different token pieces, such as the dog and the race car, ever since they can remember, but now players can now choose a new piece.

The creators of Monopoly are having a contest to see what new piece should be added to the game. Voters can vote out the thimble, wagon, racecar, battleship, shoe, dog, top hat, or iron.  Current options for the new game piece are cat, acoustic guitar, robot, helicopter, or diamond ring. An little known fact– the new pieces are nothing new; the last time they replaced pieces was in the 1950’s where a horse and rider was replaced by a dog, but this is the first time they are letting the public choose.

According to Ben Winters, when he and his family play, “No one ever chooses the iron or thimble.”

You can go to the Monopoly’s Facebook page to vote. Voting ends February 5th.

When asked what the new piece should be instead of the given Hasbro choices, Bob Jones students suggested the following: What do you think?
