AAA South Dakota is urging you to save the Monopoly race car player token, as it is endangered of being retired.
Hasbro, Monopoly's maker, plans to retire one its classic game tokens: either the race car, iron, Scottie dog, wheelbarrow, show, top hat, thimble or battleship. The company is allowing gamers to decide which tokens stay and which will no longer pass go.
Meanwhile, AAA South Dakota's Facebook page is making a drive to keep the race car in the game. The race car is one of the earliest Monopoly game tokens, introduced in 1935.
"Without the race car, how else are you going to get anywhere?" jokes Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. "The race car is the only automotive token in the Monopoly game. Millions of motorists will be heartbroken if it disappears."
