Does anyone have the McDonald's "Boardwalk" Monopoly game piece?
Someone at work gave me "Park Place". We can be rich.
honey, yours is a junk half piece, worth nothing!
No, but I won a free medium fries the other day.
I guess dreams really do come true.
Two years I won four tickets to Disney World with McDonald's Monopoly. That was back when I used to eat fast food. I didn't realize they still have that game.
It's back for a limited time, like always. I have a free quarter pounder with cheese ticket sitting on my desk, but I want that million dollars dammit!!
i think special for this year, they put a special prize only available (winable) in big macs!
I've only won food like free fish filet and fries.
I've never won anything else...sad.
Has ANYONE ever won the million dollars? I've never heard of anyone winning.
I will, if someone on DL has the elusive other gamepiece.
Check out the odds:

The approximate odds of collecting Park Place are 1 in 11; the approximate odds of collecting Boardwalk are 1 in 602,490,060; the approximate odds of collecting the Winning Combination (Park Place and Boardwalk) are 1 in 3,050,412,898; the approximate odds of collecting the Winning Combination (Park Place and Boardwalk) found on Big Mac are 1 in 37,955,000.
1 in 602 million!
This game is such a piece of shit. They print like 100,000 of 2 avenues in a suite and like 4 of the third piece. It's really only good for the free food coupons.
[quote]In 2000, the US promotion was halted after fraud was uncovered. A subcontracting company called Simon Marketing (a then-subsidiary of Cyrk), which had been hired by McDonald's to organize and promote the game, failed to recognize a flaw in its procedures. Chief of security Jerome P. Jacobson was able to remove the most expensive game pieces, which he then passed to associates who would redeem them and share the proceeds. The associates won almost all of the top prizes between 1995 and 2000, including McDonald's giveaways that did not have the Monopoly theme. The associates netted over $24 million.

Well, if YOU have never heard of anyone winning, clearly no one ever has.
I have a free Sweet Tea if anyone wants it.
I once went and ate in a McDonald's, and I kept ordering everything with the game pieces on them in hopes of getting the Boardwalk. I even thought of seeing if I could get a full sleeve of cups, but I doubt they'd give those out.

They must be aiming for obese prize winners.
