After 76 years circling Monopoly boards around the world, the iron game piece is being replaced, Hasbro Inc. said Wednesday via a movie on its Facebook page.
It's replacement will be a cat.
The company said it made its changes, designed to update the game, based on votes on its Facebook page.
The cat will join the wheelbarrow, shoe, race car, top hat, thimble, Scottie dog and battleship in Monopoly game boxes when the next edition hits stores in late summer.
