It's a piece of board game history.

Nearly seven months after winning a worldwide vote, the cat token is finally making its debut on Monopoly.

Hasbro has officially started rolling out the new game piece, which is replacing the iron token.

The cat won the coveted spot in early February. It beat out a helicopter, a diamond ring, a robot, and a guitar.

The iron was one of the Monopoly's original metal tokens when it hit the market 78 years ago.
