Nobody, it turns out, has the monopoly on bad ideas.

In an apparent effort to inject some life into its most historic brand, Hasbro is held a Facebook vote to permanently replace one of Monopoly’s iconic board game pieces.

Would the thimble get the boot? Or was the wheelbarrow on its way out? Possible replacements included a helicopter, a guitar and, the winning choice: a cat. Yes, a cat. Thank goodness Hasbro doesn’t own the rights to chess.
