Earlier this month, Monopoly announced the retirement of three game pieces with updated replacements added, it now appears Crayola is also looking to put out to pasture some older model for a newer one.  The company says one crayon from its 24-count box will be retired and replace it with a new one. While the company permanently halted production of eight colors in 1990 and an additional four in 2003, this will be the first time one color from its iconic 24-pack will cease to be available.  While the consensus give golden tickets to color basics such as red, yellow, orange, blue and black. Carnation pink, apricot, scarlet, indigo, and gray may be forever gone.  Crayola says they'll announce the color to retire on March 31st, which happens to be National Crayon Day.
