2017 brings more sad news....
The classic Monopoly game piece, the universal symbol of humble sewers everywhere, the thimble has been booted from Monopoly.
The thimble now joins other retired tokens like the cannon, the wheelbarrow, and the iron in the great Monopoly game in the sky.
Newer versions of Monopoly now come with a penguin, a television, a racecar, the Mr. Monopoly emoji, a rubber duck, a watch, a wheel, and a bunny slipper.
