Hasbro Changes Up Monopoly Playing Pieces

Written by Pat's Papers | Wednesday, 9 January 2013 8:21 AM

Hasbro has plans to send one of its iconic Monopoly pieces to jail—permanently. And it’s up to us to decide which one. The company has asked people log on to its Facebook page to vote for their favorite piece, as well as which of five new game pieces—a cat, a helicopter, a guitar, a diamond ring, or a mustache-wearing robot—should replace it.  The last editions to include the five classic pieces will be sold exclusively at Target starting in mid-February.
