    A Monopoly board game is displayed during the Hasbro New York Toy Fair 2008 on Friday, Feb. 15, 2008.

    Hashtags, emojis and even a rubber duck may replace dogs, cats and hats in an upcoming version of the Monopoly board game.

    Hasbro Inc. began a worldwide contest Tuesday to let people choose the eight tokens to be included in the next generation of the property acquisition game, based on the real-life streets of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

    Longtime staples of the game including the hat, the Scottie dog and the wheelbarrow could see themselves replaced by a winking emoji, a hashtag, a clunky '80s-style cellphone, or a pair of bunny slippers.

    Voting runs through Jan. 31 at VoteMonopoly.com, and results will be announced on March 19.
