Let's hope the Cat and Scottie can play nicely, because they are now going to be sharing the board as Monopoly game tokens.

Hasbro announced Wednesday that the Iron game token will be retiring and the Cat game token will come into play. Since January, Facebook users had been voting for their favorites and in the final hours of the vote, the Shoe, Wheelbarrow and Iron were all on the chopping block.

But the game token that received the least amount of votes was the Iron. In addition, Facebook users were voting on what game token should be added to the collection. Competing against the Robot, Guitar, Diamond Ring and Helicopter, the Cat won the race.

This is the first time since the 1950's that Monopoly game tokens have changed.
