Bestselling board game, originally from 1930s, to have one of its playing pieces updated through online vote.

    One of the world's oldest and most popular board games is getting an update.

    Hasbro, the maker of Monopoly, has launched an online vote to replace its playing pieces.

    Characters such as Scottie the dog, a top-hat, and a car reflect luxury items from the 1930s, but one of them is to be given the boot. 

    Fans have been asked to vote for a replacement from a list including a diamond ring, helicopter, guitar, cat and toy robot.
