Title: OMG! It's psyche! And hes got a monopoly board! AHHHH!
Post by: psychoptimist on October 04, 2007, 07:51:29 PM
Lol Anywhooo.....Im sure everyone by now knows about McDonalds Monopoly game they have every year. If you dont just check here (http://monopoly.corsis.com/monopoly07/front.do).

What Im trying to get at is, Lakota and I were eating there just earlier today and we got several game pieces and a gameboard for it. And we thought, "Hey! lets get all our online  friends to pitch in their pieces and we'll split anything thats won."

So if you eat anything at McDonalds that gets a gamepiece let us know. We like your help gathering pieces. Even 10 split between $10,000 is still $1000 a person. And who couldn't use an extra $1000?

We have:

Marvin Gardens
Indiana Ave
Charles Pl
Connecticut Ave
B&O RR

...and of course we will be getting more as days go by.

I can't remember the last time I was even in a McDonald's, but I'll let you know if I come across some pieces.

Remember that big scandal a few years ago where it was revealed that a few employees were hoarding all the prize pieces?  I knew all along that game was rigged.  I think what they do is print up lots of two pieces out of three, and then the third piece is really hard to find.

I'm like def, I haven't set foot in a McDonald's in, like, years and years.  But if I happen to stumble on a Monopoly piece I'll let you know.

heh TBh we dont go there too often either, but if Im ever thirsty you get 2 pieces just for a medium drink(with unlimited refills) or get a breakfast egg McMuffin. etc. lol

apparently Lakota won the $50 prizes before back when she was in high school. So I know its possible.

actually, i think it's against the rules of the game to collaborate with other players.

That may be, but how in hell can McD control whether there was any collaboration involved or not...

heh likel they can tell, what do they put a camera in a double quarter pounder? Anyway, we never win around here we always end up being one piece away from everything...pisses me off. But for the hell of it I'll pitch in, I'm desperate for tuition money.

Well ill let you guys know. Lakota and I got another piece and we now have 2 out of 3 needed to get the 25,000 dollar one! Its the yellow ones! Weve got marvin gardens and atlantic avenue! which means we only need Ventnor avenue to win! So if anyone gets one let us know! At the same time were still takin any other pieces to put together.

also we have 2 of the pink ones too. We have states avenue and St.Charles place. Only need Virginia Avenue to win that one for $1000. So lets do it together guys! :D

Also D, like they said, theres no way theyd know. how would they prove who I am in real life. Plus after we collect what we need we can simply "delete" this topic before any prizes are claimed. ;)

Post by: psychoptimist on October 05, 2007, 03:00:28 PM
Got both of those but lakota may still want em anyways. Shes apparently entering duplicates into the online version of the game(that can offer different prizes). So she may want the codes from those babies. :)

Post by: Desperado on October 05, 2007, 05:09:18 PM
Yeah I'll PM her and give her those, I might get some McDonalds tonite so I'll fill you in if I get different pieces, but if I get a free drink or fries those are mine. lol

WOOT! We scored Park Place... so we are DESPERATELY looking for Boardwalk...  it would be a 50/50 split, and cuz this is one Juno's site... we'll donate at least $1k of the winnings if we get Boardwalk ;)


Title: Re: OMG! It's psyche! And hes got a monopoly board! AHHHH!
Post by: psychoptimist on October 05, 2007, 09:22:08 PM
All the more reason to help us! Since Juno is a long time personal real life friend of mine whom Ive known since High school, we promise to pledge a good portion of the money to Junos Bohemian Trash Studios to help her provide us with more of the sweet comic we all love. Also, think of it as part of our wedding gift. ;)

lol.

LOL this is so weird.  Roxie (Pike) and I used to do this all the time when we were kids.  XD

I have now Atlantic and Oriental Ave.  So close to that Yellow win!  Damn. :P


Title: Re: OMG! It's psyche! And hes got a monopoly board! AHHHH!
Post by: dmizer on October 05, 2007, 11:55:25 PM
everyone scores park place.  there are only 2 or 4 boardwalks (can't remember which).  if you have boardwalk, you'd be only have to go to mcdonalds a few times to get a park place.

this reverses every year.  last year park place was rare and boardwalk was common.

what's more, by law they have to release /some/ of the rare pieces as part of the "purchase not required to play" program.  which means you have to send off in the mail for the pieces, or pick them up in the newspaper.

my thinking has always been that you might have more luck sending off for the pieces that way because i think that's a less known fact.

here's how to get the free pieces:
Send a hand-printed, self-addressed stamped envelope to The Monopoy 2007 Game at McDonalds, Game Piece Request, PO Box 49308, Strongville, OH 44149-0308.

this year's rare pieces:
Mediterranean Avenue $50 prize 15000 pieces
Short Line $100 prize 1500 pieces
Vermont Avenue $500 prize 250 pieces
Virginia Avenue $1000 prize 250 pieces
Tennessee Avenue $5000 prize 50 pieces
Kentucky Avenue $10000 prize 30 pieces
Ventnor Avenue $25000 prize 5 pieces
Pennsylvania Avenue $50000 prize 5 pieces
Boardwalk $100000 prize (annuity) 3 pieces

if you get any of those pieces, you're pretty much guaranteed a win.

ps.
i SO hate you for having more flurry options than me ... all i can get is oreo cookie flurry here :(

edited with piece counts.
edit edit ... made a purdy table out of the thing
edit edit edit ... added how to get the free pieces

im SO sending in for my piece. Do they only give one per household or is it per person. If so Im gonna send letters in my other family members names lol.

Also...nyah nyah. We have flurry options you get crappy oreo lol. thats what you get for not living in the USA baby. hehe

/me shakes head

after rubbing flurry options in my face, you expect me to do all your game research FOR you?!

ps ... you guys have the "mega mac"?  big mac with 4 patties.


Title: Re: OMG! It's psyche! And hes got a monopoly board! AHHHH!
Post by: Silverain on October 06, 2007, 05:06:35 AM
Frequently with games like this, you can make one request per person, per day.  But you have to send in a stamped envelope every time, so they lie when they say "no purchase necessary".

Technically they're not lying, you don't have to pay McDonald's Corp. anything to get game pieces.  I've got to buy groceries this weekend, I'll swing by the drive-thru on my way back.

Heh.  I just was at McDonald's and got the Monopoly board, but that was it.  heh.  If  I or hubby stop and get something I'll post what pieces we get.  I've often thought that McD's will release two of the pieces needed to win on one side of the country and the final piece on the complete opposite side of the US.

Ha! McD's in Luxembourg also have the Monopoly game. Or used to, come to think of it, I haven't seen it in a while.

Anyway: Luxembourg is a mere 999 square miles and I still never managed to find the third pieces to anything. So, estimate your chances in the US based on that.

^-^

humm ... wonder why that is? ;)

a bit more information:
it is allowed to share peices with other players, but you need express written permission.

for mail in free pieces:
Quote
One (1) Guaranteed Bonus Game Piece (or one [1] Game Piece for those markets where the Guaranteed Bonus Game Piece is not available) will be mailed in response to each request that complies with the requirements of these Official Rules, while supplies last. Mail-in requests must be postmarked no sooner than October 2, 2007 and no later than October 29, 2007
it mentiones no restrictions on how many envelopes you are allowed to send in.

mcdonalds says it will honor every request sent in as long as supplies last.  but the SASE must be legibly hand written and must match the return address on the envelope addressed to mcdonalds.

don't use address lables.  hand write everything clearly.

BTW dmizer and all the others who have pieces we already have on our PHYSICAL board. Can you please pm me the codes to those duplicate pieces you guys have. We can still enter them online on the virtual monopoly board that we have and it'll give us a free roll of the dice for winning smaller(but still cool prizes). so before you throw them away sent me the codes. And we can still win this yet! :)

Hey Dmizer that reminds me. Do I need to put a piece of paper in the envelope saying, please send me my gamepiece." ? Or is the fact that I sent an envelope there with my return address on it sufficient?

you're only just now asking that?  doesn't say anything about a note.  and i'm sure the process is fairly automated so i wouldn't worry about it.
