(Newser) – Everyone has his or her favorite Monopoly piece ... meaning some people are going to be sorely disappointed when the iconic board game loses one of its classic tokens. Monopoly is staging a Facebook contest in which players can vote to save their favorite pieces (refresher: The tokens include a race car, iron, Scottie dog, wheelbarrow, shoe, top hat, thimble, and battleship). Players also vote on which of five potential new pieces will replace the one that is removed: a cat, a toy robot, a diamond ring, a helicopter, or a guitar. After voting ends Feb. 5, a limited-edition version of the game including all of the old and potential new tokens will be released in Target stores, USA Today reports. (Read more Monopoly stories.)
