PAWTUCKET, R.I., Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Rhode Island-based toymaker Hasbro is holding a vote online to decide which of its iconic Monopoly game tokens will be retired.

The "Save Your Token" campaign allows fans to vote on the game's Facebook page for their favorite token -- the Scottie dog, top hat, race car, battleship, wheelbarrow, shoe, thimble or iron -- and the object with the fewest votes will be retired from future releases of the board game, USA Today reported Wednesday.

The Facebook site also allows fans of the game to vote for the token that will replace the retired game piece, a cat, guitar, toy robot, helicopter or diamond ring.

Hasbro said the limited-run "Golden Token" Monopoly will be sold in mid-February and will be the last edition to feature all the classic tokens and the only edition to feature all five potential new pieces.

Voting ends Feb. 5 and the first Monopoly edition to feature the new token lineup will go on sale during the summer, the company said.
