I am a big fan of the terminology “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but apparently the makers of Monopoly disagree with me. They have taken to Facebook to ask fans to vote on a new token piece because they are doing away with a classic. Here’s how it works; fans vote on the car, thimble, shoe, Scottie dog, battleship, hat, iron and wheelbarrow and the one with the fewest votes will go. It will then be replaced with cat, diamond ring, guitar, helicopter or toy robot. As of yesterday, the dog and the car have the most votes while the top hat and the wheelbarrow have the least. Why? Why change this?
