Monopoly's Boot Gets the Boot as Three New Tokens Make Their Debuts


Earlier this year, Monopoly decided to hold a vote to get rid of three of its iconic tokens. The results of that global purge led to the boot, wheelbarrow and thimble's demises. With March 19 being Monopoly Day, the brand introduced the replacements -- a Penguin, T-Rex and Rubber Ducky. The three winners were chosen through a worldwide vote, where fans picked their favorites out of 56 prototypes.

Games with the new tokens will hit stores this fall, but Monopoly will be issuing a special edition set which will include both the eight old tokens along with the eight new ones. This isn't the first time that Monopoly decided to shake up its roster -- back in 2013, the iron said its goodbyes in favor of a cat. Learn more about the new tokens here.

A new 'Justice League' trailer is right around the corner

Only the biggest of movies get the privilege of teasing the teaser and making us pay attention.  For better or worse, Justice League, you certainly qualify. SEE ALSO: 'Wonder Woman' gets an origin story in new trailer Warner Bros. on Thursday revealed that "IN 2 DAYS" (that's Saturday, if you do the math) a new Justice League trailer will arrive, and though they're not saying exactly what time, you'd have to get up pretty early in the morning to slip this thing past us. Zack Snyder dropped the first Justice League footage back in July at Comic-Con, then released it to his Twitter account shortly after the Hall H presentation. Though we've seen plenty of Wonder Woman (a June 2 release) since then, it's been all quiet on the Justice League front (November 17).  Read more...More about Aquaman, Dc Comics, Warner Bros., Wonder Woman, and Superman

Earliest dinosaurs may have originally come from Britain, new study says

Dinosaurs just can't get a break. First, a comet slams into the Earth and renders them extinct. Now a group of scientists wants to dramatically shake-up the dino family tree.  A new study, published this week in the journal Nature, proposes a major reordering of dinosaurs' evolutionary history.  The revised tree swaps around large subfamilies and adds a new branch for the Tyrannosaurus Rex and its ilk. The study also suggests that dinosaurs may have originated in the Northern Hemisphere, possibly in an area that is now Britain — not in South America, as scientists have long assumed.

'Game of Thrones' script reveals the truth about Stannis Baratheon's fate

Death isn't always permanent on Game of Thrones (just ask Jon Snow), which sometimes leads to conspiracy theories whenever a character is seemingly killed off without showing us the fatal blow onscreen. Such is the case with Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), who died at the vengeful hands of Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the Season 5 finaleOr did he? (Yes, he did.) Despite persistent fan theories that Brienne might have inexplicably decided to spare the life of the man she's been trying to kill for three seasons mid-swing, a newly uncovered script for the Emmy-winning episode confirms what most of us accepted all along — that Brienne succeeded in her mission and fulfilled her vow to make Stannis pay for the murder of his brother, Renly (Gethin Anthony) back in Season 2.  Read more...More about Game Of Thrones Spoilers, Hbo, Game Of Thrones Season 5, Game Of Thrones, and Entertainment
