Vote on social networks to save your Monopoly token!

"In an unlucky roll of the dice, every MONOPOLY token has landed in jail. One will be locked up forever and replaced with a new piece. Luckily, you’ll have the chance to vote to save your favourite token every day. Don’t skip your turn!", a recent announcement from Hasbro - the Monopoly company - confirmed.

So let's vote on Facebook to save our favourite token!


A campaign on the social network has been launched to give people the power to choose which token has to be jailed and which new one is created.

The board-game is probably one of the most known all around the word. It has been translated in 43 languages and sold in 111 different countries, with more than 300 millions boxes being purchased.

Monopoly appeared in 1935 with only 6 tokens: a Car, a Thimble, a Boot, a Battle Ship, a Hat and an Iron. Finally at the beginning of the 1950s Scottie Dog and Wheelbarrow were added. Now one of the classic tokens needs to be replaced with either a Robot, a Diamond Ring, a Cat, a Helicopter or a Guitar.

It is possible to vote every day until February 5th, from the "Save your token" campaign’s Facebook page. Moreover you can promote your personal campaign to encourage friends to vote for your preferred classic and new tokens. It is very easy! Just share images and videos on Facebook and Twitter using as hashtag #tokenvote.

Do you already know which token to save and which new one you’d like to see? Tell us here and share it on your social profiles!
