NEW YORK (AP) — The gig is almost up for one of the eight Monopoly tokens. But which will it be? Iron? Thimble? Top Hat?

Or another of their board game buddies?

Hasbro is holding a Facebook contest to eliminate one of the eight tokens that identify the players and introduce a new one. Possible new tokens include a cat, diamond ring, guitar, toy robot and helicopter

So if you are tired of the iron token and would rather be represented by a robot, here’s your chance to make those wishes known.

Beginning Tuesday, Facebook fans of monopoly can vote on which piece to eliminate and which one to add.

The voting ends Feb. 5.
