Singapore fans of board game Monopoly who are fretting over which one of its iconic tokens will be dropped under a recently announced revamp, can now have an online say.

The owners of the 78-year-old board game, American-based Hasbro, are replacing one of the eight tokens with a more modern one.

It is getting rid of one from this selection: the car, thimble, boot, scottie dog, battleship, hat, iron and wheelbarrow. The proposed replacement is one of these: robot, ring, cat, helicopter and guitar.

Hasbro has launched a Facebook campaign called "Save Your Token". Fans worldwide are encouraged not to leave the fate of their favourite tokens to chance by voting for the one they want to keep at https://apps.facebook.com/saveyourtoken/.
