Monopoly Announced the Game Pieces It’s Kicking Out and Their Replacements

Monopoly Announced the Game Pieces It’s Kicking Out and Their Replacements

Back in January, Hasbro announced that there were going to be some big changes to Monopoly’s game pieces. Some of the classics were going to get kicked out and replaced by new ones. And they put the whole thing to a vote.

Well the results are in. Three of the classic tokens are out, and three new ones are in.

Monopoly is officially getting rid of the thimble . . . the wheelbarrow . . . and the boot. And the new tokens replacing them are a T-rex . . . a rubber ducky . . . and a penguin.

That means the old school pieces that managed to get enough votes to survive are the Scottie dog . . . top hat . . . car . . . cat . . . and battleship. I use the term “old school” loosely with the cat, since it’s only been around since 2013, when it replaced the iron.

There were dozens of options for new tokens, and the fact that people voted in three fairly basic animal options showed we’re not QUITE as ready for Monopoly to jump into modern times as Hasbro seemed to be.

Some of the possible tokens that didn’t get the votes included four different emoji faces . . . a hashtag sign . . . a thumbs-up . . . sunglasses . . . a Vespa scooter . . . a monster truck . . . a cell phone . . . a TV . . . and a NASCAR race car.

Two Sisters Are Stranded For Two Weeks and Survive by Eating Girl Scout Cookies

Two Sisters Are Stranded For Two Weeks and Survive by Eating Girl Scout Cookies

sisters-wk5

56-year-old Lee Wright and her 52-year-old sister Leslie Roy were visiting family up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula back on April 11th . . . and as they were driving home through a remote area, their SUV got stuck in some deep snow.

They were stuck . . . and they were SCREWED. There was no cell phone coverage, their car was almost out of gas, and the road was SO remote that no other cars were driving by.

So they went into survival mode. They put on all the clothes they had . . . they used the snow for water . . . and they rationed the GIRL SCOUT COOKIES they happened to have with them to try to stay alive.

Eventually their family reported them missing . . . and a police helicopter finally spotted their car on Friday . . . after they’d been stranded for TWO WEEKS.

Lee and Leslie were both in shockingly good health, all things considered . . . the medical report just says they were, quote, “a little weak.”
