Meow-zah! Cat to be Monopoly game token.


UPI News Service, 02/06/2013 

The board game Monopoly could be the cat's meow after fans gave the flatiron game token the boot and replaced it with a cat, the game's U.S. manufacturer said.

The cat clawed its way past a robot, guitar, helicopter and diamond ring in Monopoly's "Save Your Token" campaign on Facebook, receiving 31 percent of the fan vote, Hasbro Inc., based in Pawtucket, R.I., said Wednesday in a release.

In the vote to decide which classic tokens would be saved, the Scottish terrier was top dog, securing 29 percent of the vote. The flatiron fell flat, picking up only 8 percent.

Hasbro officials said the cat token will replace the iron on Monopoly production lines immediately and should be on store shelves in mid-to-late 2013.

"We know that cat lovers around the world will be happy to welcome the new cat token into the Monopoly game," said Eric Nyman, senior vice president and global brand leader for Hasbro's gaming division. "While we're a bit sad to see the iron go, the cat token is a fantastic choice by the fans and we have no doubt it will become just as iconic as the original tokens."
