Los fanáticos de Monopoly en todo el mundo deciden que la ficha del gato será una incorporación purr-fecta al clásico juego

¡La próxima ficha del juego MONOPOLY que ‘se incorporará’ y ganará $200 dólares será... el gato! Luego de un mes de votación en Facebook y una abrumadora respuesta por parte de los fanáticos y las organizaciones de 185 países en todo el mundo, el gato ha sido elegido y se convertirá en la incorporación más reciente del clásico juego de Hasbro (NASDAQ: HAS). El gato pudo darle un zarpazo al robot de juguete, a la guitarra, al helicóptero y al anillo de diamante en la campaña “Salva tu ficha” de MONOPOLY al recibir el 31% de los votos de los fanáticos.

En el voto para decidir qué fichas clásicas serían ‘salvadas’ por los fanáticos, el perro Scottie fue un claro favorito al inicio, que finalmente se aseguró el 29% de los votos. Mientras tanto, los adeptos a la plancha, la carretilla y el zapato hicieron una vigorosa campaña para salvar sus fichas favoritas de una vida entera en prisión y asegurarse de que permanezcan en el juego. Tras una competencia muy reñida, los esfuerzos de los fanáticos no fueron suficientes para la plancha. Con solo el 8% de los votos, la emblemática ficha se ubicó detrás de la carretilla y el zapato y será eliminada del juego MONOPOLY. Pese a formar una parte integral de la vida cuando la ficha se incorporó al juego en la década del 30, la plancha ha caído en desgracia entre los fanáticos actuales y será retirada del juego.

Hasbro empezará a reemplazar a la plancha con la nueva ficha del gato en las líneas de producción de MONOPOLY de inmediato, por eso, quienes quieran continuar jugando con la plancha y las otras siete fichas clásicas tienen un tiempo limitado para conseguir la versión actual del juego. El nuevo juego MONOPOLY que incluirá la ficha del gato llegará a las tiendas entre mediados y fines de 2013.

“Sabemos que los amantes de los gatos en todo el mundo estarán felices de darle la bienvenida a la nueva ficha del gato en el juego MONOPOLY”, señaló Eric Nyman, vicepresidente ejecutivo y líder de marca mundial de Hasbro Gaming. “Si bien estamos un poco tristes por la partida de la plancha, la ficha del gato es una elección fantástica de los fanáticos y no tenemos dudas de que será tan emblemática como las fichas originales”.

Hasbro realizó la campaña “Salva tu ficha” de MONOPOLY en Facebook desde el 9 de enero hasta el 5 de febrero de 2013. Los fanáticos pueden visitar Facebook.com/Monopoly para despedirse de la plancha y ver el contenido adicional de la campaña “Salva tu ficha” de MONOPOLY.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
