I've got Park Place on McDonald's Monopoly game. If anyone has Boardwalk let me know and we'll go 50/50 on the $1,000,000.

Seriously though, anyone play this game? I keep getting free french fries all the time![smile]

Supposedly "park place" is one of the rare pieces, so let me know how this works out, interested to see. If boardwalks aren't that hard to come by may as well go back and by a bunch of large fries until you get one.

(Just wiki-d it)

Good luck,

Mike

I have only bought stuff giving me 6 game pieces, but they have all been monopoly pieces. Not a single free hash browns or small fries!

Are they actually giving out food anymore?

I keep getting free medium french fries.... I also got a free Red Box movie rental. I get my coffee at McD's every morning... large coffee is only $1.07 (although the person making it makes all the difference in the world).

If you guys haven't figured out by now why you didn't win, you may want to watch the new HBO mini-series starting next month:

By law there must be a way to enter without making a purchase. Even the USCCA that peppers my mailbox with daily news about the raffle I get entered into if I join that day provides a no-purchase option to enter.

Wow! First off I thought my account got hacked. Then, looked at the date.... Almost 10 years ago!

Secondly, its amazing how the McDonald's monopoly game caused so much pain! Seems a little nuts!

Pfft. Forget the big con. Check out the small con. Back in the day, they were price pieces. Not on cups or fry containers. Just pieces.

A girl at my HS worked at McD's. She'd bring home BAGS of pieces and we'd open them up in study period. A lot of free food was consumed by us back then. (IIRC, Monopoly game was a specific date range. So once the game was over, pieces needed to be destroyed or returned. Employees just kept them. By the thousands. LOL)

So your saying you didn’t win sh*t despite having Park Place and Boardwalk?

ohhhhh, the McDonalds Monopoly game! I'm normally good but when I see this I'm always good for adding a few pounds to the waistline.

Sigh. The good old days of HS when you could go to McD's 3-12 times a week and never gain an ounce. I still love a Big Mac, fries and a chocolate shake every so often.

And despite people's hatred of McD and how "un"healthy they are, the original Egg McMuffin is a pretty healthy breakfast that is cooked fresh in the store. (Unlike Dunkin where the stuff was made in a warehouse and is just warmed on-site.). It's got a full 1/3 of your RDA of protein with only 11% of the normal carb load for an adult. Plus their coffee isn't half bad.

lol, you kinda sound like that dude on the first 'Die Hard' movie explaining the ingredients of a Twinkie :) But I must admit, you had me at 'Big Mac'.

I wonder if one could determine the total weight gain across the US caused by promotions like this...
