After 82 Years, Monopoly’s Thimble Gets the Boot!

As a kid you remember: your parents pulling out Monopoly and everyone battling for which character they get to be. I want the shoe! I want the car! Well no longer can anyone say, “I want the thimble!” After 82 years the game makers have decided to retire the Thimble. The change will go into effect in August when the latest version of the game will come out.

Eight of the most popular tokens will remain in the game and fans had the opportunity to vote for what the new token will be. They could choose between 64 new tokens including a dinosaur, hashtag (pound sign), and cell phone among others. Voting has ended and the winner of the vote will be announced March 19.

RIP Thimble, you had a good life.
