The beloved Scottie dog game piece in Monopoly is in danger of being eliminated! And the worst news is he could be replaced with (gasp) a cat! Monopoly creator Parker Brothers has decided to retire one of its classic game pieces and replace it with a newer model. In addition to the Scottie dog, the battle ship, wheelbarrow, thimble, race car, top hat, shoe, iron and wheelbarrow pieces are on the cutting block. The replacement candidates, in addition to the cat, include a helicopter, robot, diamond ring, and guitar. Monopoly fans have until Feb. 5 to vote to save their favorite (Scottie dog) piece.
