From January 10 – 31, fans can visit VoteMonopoly.com to choose eight tokens from a list of 64 choices that they’d like to see in the next Monopoly game. The winning tokens will be announced on World Monopoly Day, March 19, to appear in a new edition of Monopoly releasing in August.
The current line-up includes a Scottie dog, wheelbarrow, cat, racecar, thimble, shoe, top hat, and battleship. When the game was developed by Charles Darrow in 1933, players were asked to use small items from home (pennies or buttons) as tokens. Darrow’s niece suggested charms, like the ones on her charm bracelet, would be good tokens. Darrow took the idea, and fashioned charms based on familiar 1930s household items: an iron, purse, lantern, racecar, thimble, boot, top hat, battleship, cannon, and rocking horse.
The 64 potential tokens (pictured below) include a bunny slipper, a rubber duck, Mr. M Emoji, penguin, watch, campfire, private jet, gramophone, T-Rex, and a monster truck.
