Hasbro, the makers of the classic board game/anger management exercise Monopoly, launched an online poll last month to let fans decide which tokens would make the cut for the next edition of the game.
The results are in, and the thimble token, a staple of the game since its creation in 1935, is out.
And this, somewhat surprisingly, has upset a lot of passionate Monopoly fans.
We were a little bit surprised that the thimble got among the lowest votes because it's been in the game for so long.
This AP graphic makes it look like an obituary.
What is happening with the world: Monopoly dropping the thimble! Madness, utter madness. Bad enough when the iron went! Sad day!— SJE (@sjeaves1) February 16, 2017
Some thought it was a sign of "madness."
America has put up with a lot lately. But... Monopoly eliminating the Thimble from the game? Shudder to think of what the results might be.— Dan Jurgens (@thedanjurgens) February 16, 2017
My feed is littered with doomed political perspectives... and here I am wondering how Hasbro could retire Monopoly's thimble #adversity— Brooks Patrick Allen (@BPA23) February 16, 2017
