Cat replaces iron in MONOPOLY game

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The votes are in and MONOPOLY fans are adding a cat to the real-estate trading game, replacing the iron token.

The MONOPOLY "Save Your Token" campaign has been taking place on the MONOPOLY Facebook page since Jan. 9.

The cat earned more fan votes than the guitar, toy robot, diamond ring and helicopter.

The iron, a staple in the game since 1935, failed to secure enough of the vote and is being pressed out of the game for good.

You can still get a copy of the MONOPOLY game with the classic eight tokens, however all copies of the game will replace the iron with the cat later this year.
