Monopoly — the world’s most famous and popular board game — is looking to get a slight makeover. Well, not a makeover per say, but one of the classic token pieces is about to get booted off the island.

Hasbro Gaming is looking to swap one of the existing pieces, the battleship, the race car, the top hat, the iron, the thimble, the wheelbarrow, the shoe, or the Scottie dog, for a fresh new token. Who will decides what stays and what goes? We, the people.

Fans of the classic board game will be able to voice their opinions on either Facebook or Twitter before February 3rd. A special hashtag, #tokenvote, has been created in order to allow gamers to place their vote on their favorite piece.

Hasbro’s Gaming Director, Eric Nyman, had this to say:

“The tokens are one of the most iconic parts of the Monopoly game and we know that people are emotionally tied to their favorite one. When we decided to replace one of the tokens in the game, we knew we had to involve our fans in the process. We can’t wait to see which iconic piece will ‘go to jail’ and which new token the fans will choose to become part of one of the world’s most popular games.”

Possible alternatives include a diamond ring, a helicopter, a cat, a robot, and a guitar.
