The makers of the game of Monopoly are making a change.
A token one.
One is the traditional game pieces — car, thimble, boot, Scottie dog, battleship, iron or wheelbarrow — is going to jail with no parole.
A new piece will replace it — either a cat, diamond ring, guitar, helicopter or robot.
The decision will be made by "Survivor-like" vote — by the game's audience on Facebook. The top vote-getters by Feb. 6 will either get the boot (possibly literally the boot) or a welcome mat.
Everybody has their favorite Monopoly piece — one that represents "you" for a couple of hours or so, the you you dream about when you acquire the Boardwalk, Park Place empire.
If I were adding pieces, I would choose a smart phone, a sombrero, a bass boat, a football helmet and a bottle of wine.
Let's have an unofficial poll.
Which one of the classic tokens would you eliminate?
Which one of the proposed new tokens would you add?
And if you had to pick a new Monopoly token, what would you propose?
I'm betting they'll be at least one vote for a clown hat.
