New Monopoly piece revealed as the cat; the iron is being retired

The pieces for the popular real estate game Monopoly are getting a new look this year. The game announced via Facebook last month that voting was open to both retire one of the classic pieces and vote in a new piece. 

The results are in. The piece with the lowest number of "save" votes, which means it is being retired, is the iron -- which is the piece we predicted would be booted. It's just kind of a boring piece, right?

We also picked the correct new piece: the cat. It received the most votes, beating out the diamond ring, helicopter, guitar and robot, so look for it to be joining the new Monopoly games soon. 

What do you think of the new piece and the retired piece, Monopoly fans?

Just glad it wasn't the thimble being retired..., and it makes sense to have a cat against a dog ;-)

Guess that will make "cat" lovers happy, but I'm not a "cat" lover.

I'm not a fan of cats. I liked the iron.
Oh well.

And it's already going for 2k on ebay even though you can still buy the original board game in stores WITH the iron while supplies last.
