Why do we feel the need to mess with everything? I was happy with the game the way it was (pieces and all). Monopoly is officially retiring the thimble, wheelbarrow, and the boot. And being replaced by a T-Rex, rubber ducky, and penguin. Some of the possible tokens that didn't make the cut include 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. Full disclosure I actually voted for the Hashtag.
