Monopoly has been having a contest where you could vote on the game pieces. It wasn't a guarantee that the old pieces would get the boot, but chances were that not all of them would stick around. So here is the breakdown of what is in, and what it out.

  • New Game Pieces:
    • Tyrannosaurus Rex
    • Penguin
    • Rubber Ducky
  • Pieces That Are Out
    • Thimble
    • Wheelbarrow
    • Boot
  • Pieces That Are Sticking Around
    • Scottie Dog
    • Top Hat
    • Car
    • Cat
    • Battleship

I'm okay with the update. As much of a fan as I was about the classic game, this isn't the first time Monopoly has had an update. And I am thankful that none of the emojis made it as a new game piece. That might have been the nail in the coffin of me wanting to play Monopoly again. And I love playing Monopoly. It's all about controlling the railroads. Seriously, control the railroads, win the game.
