LONDON, England – To celebrate the launch of the Monopoly Cat token, a larger than life Monopoly Cat has arrived in London – in a bid to show the Scottie Dog exactly who’s really the top dog in the fast-dealing property turf war.
The Cat’s arrival follows a month of voting on Facebook earlier this year, and an overwhelming response from fans and organisations from 185 countries around the world. The cat has been chosen to replace the Iron and has become the newest addition to the classic game from Hasbro.
“We know that cat lovers around the world will be happy to welcome the new cat token into the MONOPOLY game,” said Eric Nyman, senior vice president and global brand leader for Hasbro Gaming. “While we’re a bit sad to see the iron go, the cat token is a fantastic choice by the fans and we have no doubt it will become just as iconic as the original tokens.”
