Its Official! Cat Replaces Iron In Monopoly Game

Its official!  There's a new game piece in Monopoly.  Fans have voted and a cat token has been added to the game.  It replaces the iron which will be retired.  Hasbro who makes Monopoly had fans vote on which piece would be introduced and which would be retired.  At one point fans voted to remove the wheelbarrow, shoe and iron.  In the end the iron was voted out of the game.

To replace the iron there were many choices including a robot, diamond ring, helicopter or guitar. 

Fans from 120 countries voted.  There's no word when the cat will be added to the game.  Parker Brothers bought the game from its original designer in 1935.
