ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.— Hashtags, emojis and even a rubber duck might exchange canine, cats and hats in an upcoming model of the Monopoly board recreation.
Hasbro Inc. started a worldwide contest Tuesday to let individuals select the eight tokens to be included within the subsequent era of the property acquisition recreation, based mostly on the actual-life streets of Atlantic Metropolis, New Jersey.
Longtime staples of the sport together with the hat, the Scottie canine and the wheelbarrow might see themselves changed by a winking emoji, a hashtag, a clunky ’80s-fashion cellphone, or a pair of bunny slippers.
Voting runs via Jan. 31 at www.VoteMonopoly.com , and outcomes will probably be introduced on March 19.
The model of the sport with the brand new fan-picked tokens will go on sale in August.
