PAWTUCKET, Rhode Island – The fans have voted:  Monopoly’s old iron game piece has been ousted for a shiny new cat.

It comes after fans were asked to vote for a new token, and choose which of the classic tokens would be replaced.

The other new options for updated game pieces were a robot, a diamond ring, a helicopter, and a guitar.

The new versions of Monopoly, complete with the cat and without the iron, will be released later this summer.  A limited edition “Golden Token” of the game will arrive exclusively at Target this month.  It will include gold tokens of all the current lineup (including the iron) as well as the five proposed new pieces.
