Can You Guess Monopoly’s 3 New Pieces? Don’t Bet On It

Out with the old, in with the new.

Hasbro has revealed the three new game pieces that will replace the thimble, wheelbarrow and boot as part of an online vote allowing fans to choose the parts.

T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin are three rookies joining the lineup, alongside Scottie dog, top hat, car, battleship, cat and penguin. In the vote, people chose which eight pieces they’d like. It had previously been announced that the thimble would be retired.

People reports that 4.3 million people from 146 countries cast votes. There were a total of 64 potential selections — 56 of which were news — meaning it probably took as much time to whittle down the field as it does to play an actual game of Monopoly.

This news got us thinking: surely, some other board games could use some updating, right? The ladder from Chutes and Ladders must be pretty rickety by now. The poor guy from Operation would probably be a better cadaver for med students at this point than a surgery candidate and surely no one in their right mind would dare eat the ready-to-break-a-tooth offerings in Gum Drop Mountain at this point.
