Your favorite Monopoly game piece may be going into retirement.

Hasbro Gaming has decided to remove one of its cherished pieces. But the company is giving fans of the iconic game a chance to vote to “Save Your Token.”

Here’s how Monopoly described it on their Facebook page:

“In an unlucky roll of the dice, every Monopoly token has landed in jail. One will be locked up forever and replaced with a new piece. Luckily, you’ll have the chance to vote to save your favorite token every day. Don’t skip your turn!”

Fans will decide if Scottie dog, battle ship, top hat, race car, wheelbarrow, iron, thimble or shoe should be retired or placed in jail — forever.

You can also vote for the piece that you want to be added to the game: a cat, a diamond ring, a robot, a helicopter or a guitar all have a chance to pass Go.

Voting ends on February 5.
