Trying to revamp their classic game, Hasbro gave Monopoly fans the opportunity to choose a new game piece to replace an existing one. The process took place online where people had the chance to vote on two polls. Some of the new token choices were a diamond ring, a guitar, a toy robot, and a helicopter. After weeks of voting, the cat came out on top with a healthy 31% of the vote.
Who will lose… and who will win? A Monopoly board game piece is going to be removed, and you have the power to decide which one it’ll be! With Hasbro’s "Save Your Token" campaign, fans have the ability to vote for their favorite Monopoly token to remain in the game. The Candidates: the shoe, wheelbarrow, Scottie dog, top hat, thimble, iron, race car, and battleship. Whichever of these pieces has the lowest votes as of February 5th will be removed from the iconic game...forever. On the bright side? A new token has the chance to join the pack!
Do you like strategy? Do you like harvesting resources to build up expansive empires? Do you like to crush your enemies, to see them fall at your feet -- to take their grain and bricks and hear the lamentation of their sheep? Well, then this weeks YMBMO is of particular interest to you, because you may be missing out! No, I’m not talking about Starcraft II (or Farmville) - I’m talking about German board game sensation Settlers of Catan!
It might not be real, but it's definitely awesome. I for one would immediately go out and buy one if this were to become a licensed product. As creator Das Chupa describes:
If you have read the comic or seen the movie you know only ass that was kicked was the hero’s. So, it would seem a perfect compliment for Hasbro’s Operation: Kick-ass. Simply install the nodes to your nether regions as per the comic and relive 117 minutes of mind numbing ass kickery!
