3 Monopoly Game Pieces Get The Boot

March 17, 2017

I love a good game of Monopoly! But I have also been part of games where people have almost come to blows over one person screwing the other over in some crazy deal. 

Starting this Fall, the traditional version of Monopoly will have three new game pieces. News broke about a month ago that Hasbro, the company that makes Monopoly was going to get rid of the thimble game piece and adds something more current for 2017. 

But today we've learned that they are giving the boot to three of the original game pieces, and yes, one of them is the boot. The other two pieces getting retired are the thimble and the wheelbarrow. So what will the three new pieces be starting this Fall?

You can see the T-rex, Rubber Ducky, and Penguin gold game pieces above. 

Fun fact, the last time a token game piece was dropped was in 2013 when the Iron was retired for a cat.
