Monopoly is officially killing one of their classic tokens: the thimble. As part of their Monopoly Token Madness Vote, the thimble was voted off the new version of the game board.

According to Time magazine, the thimble token as been around since 1935, when Monopoly first made its debut. After they tallied over 4 million votes, however, fans decided they no longer wanted the thimble as part of the game. Other classic Monopoly pieces, including the Scottie dog, wheelbarrow, boot and battleship, will currently remain on the game board.

Hasbro said, according to Fortune, “The Thimble token will not “Pass GO” in the next generation of the Monopoly game. The lucky Thimble has lost its ‘shine’ with today’s fans and will be retired from the game.”

The 56 new tokens that were in the running while voting was open last month included a penguin, typewriter, rubber duck and emoji of Mr. Monopoly. The entire set of results will be announced March 19 on World Monopoly Day.

Take a look at how people responded to the thimble’s demise below:
