Hasbro, the giant US toy company which owns such celebrated brands as Action Man, Sesame Street, My Little Pony, Tinkertoys and Transformers, is also the world’s largest producer of board games, with such great names as Monopoly, Scrabble, Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit on its books. The company has revenues of $4 billion but has decided in recent days that it needs to update Monopoly a little. The world’s best-selling board game of all time, with sales that are reckoned to be around 250 million since it was introduced by Parker Brothers in 1935, the game is currently available in 111 countries in 43 different languages. A traditional part of the game have been the player tokens which have included a battleship, a shoe, a top hat, a thimble, a wheelbarrow, an iron, a Scottie dog and a racing car. The company says that it is now time to modernise the game and is proposing to retire one of the famous tokens and replace it with something a little more modern: a robot, a helicopter, a guitar, a diamond ring or a cat. In order to see what the fans want Hasbro has launched a campaign to allow them to vote for their favourite token and for the new token they would like to see. The voting end on February 5 and race fans around the world may perhaps be keen to save the racing car, allowing it to continue to pass go, enjoy free parking and go intermittently to jail. Some would argue that all the tokens should be replaced by modern-looking racing cars, but Hasbro is probably not going to go down that route. However, if you feel strongly about the race car, you can vote for it at https://apps.facebook.com/saveyourtoken/.
