Will Emojis Come to Life?

January 12, 2017

Well, it really depends on what you vote for. That’s right — Hasbro, Inc., the company who makes the iconic Monopoly board game, is asking people to pick their next generation of tokens (or board game pieces). Of the 50 tokens up for consideration are things like emojis, a hashtag, and a computer — items that didn’t even exist when the first Monopoly games were manufactured and sold in 1935. Want to check out all of the other tokens being considered and vote for your favorite ones? You can cast your vote on www.votemonopoly.com. The winning tokens will be announced on January 31st.
