In Other News: Monopoly Is Introducing New Tokens Including a Hashtag, a Scooter, and Four Emoji Faces

| January 11, 2017

This is going to make me sound 100 years old, but: Hey, Monopoly. Leave my damn thimble alone.

Hasbro just announced they’re going to be making a bunch of new tokens for Monopoly to replace the classics like the top hat, thimble, and wheelbarrow.

Fortunately, the new tokens aren’t going to be permanent . . . at least, not yet. For now, they’re just appearing in a new edition of Monopoly called “Token Madness.”

They created a website where everyone can vote on the tokens they want to see in the new game. Here are some of the options:

A hashtag sign . . . a TV . . . a Tyrannosaurus rex . . . an old-school Zack Morris cell phone . . . sunglasses . . . a scooter . . . a roller skate . . . a record player . . . a rubber ducky . . .

And four different emoji faces: Smiling face . . . winking and smiling . . . kissing face . . . and the face that’s laughing with tears. You can vote at
