Wouldn’t it be great if you could play Monopoly with emoji tokens, so when you land on “Advance to Go. Collect $200”, your heart-eyed emoji figure says it all? Turning this fantasy into a reality, Hasbro has is giving its Monopoly board game a makeover, allowing the public to vote on new tokens and figurines until January 31, 2017.

With 64 new tokens to choose from, 56 are brand new and were inspired by pop culture including Emojis, Facebook’s thumbs up sign and the hashtag symbol. The voting is being held in an interactive website where voters must navigate a mansion with different rooms and then choose eight figurines. Mind you, Monopoly has already warned the public that no token is safe. This quickly alarmed the game’s fans to save Scottie the dog, a huge fan-favorite in the game.
