Time running out on Monopoly piece fan vote

Hasbro Gaming invited its Facebook users to join a vote, "Save Your Token," to choose which Monopoly token will be discontinued. Voting is scheduled to close just before midnight EST Tuesday.

PAWTUCKET, Rhode Island — The end is near for the shoe, wheelbarrow or iron in the classic Monopoly game as fans vote in the final hours on which token to eliminate and which piece to replace it.

The eight tokens that identify the players have changed quite a lot since Parker Brothers bought the game from its original designer in 1935. The latest changes mark the first time fans have had a say in which piece to add and which one to toss.

The voting on Facebook is scheduled to close just before midnight Tuesday.

So far, the wheelbarrow, shoe and iron are neck and neck for elimination. Pawtucket, Rhode Island-based toy maker Hasbro Inc. will announce the new addition Wednesday morning.

Fans from more than 120 countries have voted.
