IT is the world-famous game on which many a player shined as a property tycoon and where luckless strugglers went to jail, but after a public vote one of Monopoly's tokens will never again pass go. Of the handful of metal pieces whose journey around the board depended on a throw of a dice, a month-long ballot conducted on Facebook will result in the iron being consigned to history, the game's maker, Hasbro, said on Wednesday. A cat will take its place on the board, setting up showdowns with the much-loved Scottie dog, which was the first token that online voters chose to save from extinction. The wheelbarrow and shoe tokens also survived. "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 Gaming.
