Hey I know it ain't Lottery but what they heck.

Anyone have the "Boardwalk" Game Piece?

I have "Park Place"  (probably a gazillion made) just need the "Boardwalk"

I split the $1,000,000 with ya.

      No I did not.

      I can't speak Spanish!!

      What does it say??

      I wonder what it means when it says "You could win $1,000,000?

        There's probably only one boardwalk piece in the entire milkyway galaxy.

        Good luck finding it.

          I just bought McDonald's last night and found out about the new game...won a free small soda, woo hoo.

          I wonder if the McDonald's Monopoly Scandal is still fresh in America's collective-consciousness...all the prizes being diverted to friends and family of insiders for several rounds of the game.

          I believe they used to print (2) Boardwalks, and one inevitably gets thrown away by someone who doesn't know the game.  If you had Boardwalk and not Park Place, you could either buy a lot of food at McDonald's, or pay someone $1,000 for Park Place, forget splitting the million, hehe!

            At least I won a small mcflurry.

            I remember the old "fixed" Monopoly Game.

              yeh we had it here too- what a kafukle it was-- there was a misprint and like 300 people won the major prize of a car here-- well it made headlines on the news and then the big M said  someone had printed too many winners so they declared all prizes null an void-- ahhhhhhhh so thats what they mean by a BIG MAC :)

                the game piece will probably be thrown away by some kid that cannot read...

                I had a student who ate a bag of blue M&M's three years ago and threw his bag away.. His reg. ed teacher and I looked all over for it...

                 

                Amazing.. he ate his (what could be ) his only chance of being a millionaire..

                  What CASH Only means is that the million is paid in an annuity.  Are you sure there is not a cash option this time?

                  I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    Nope... read the size 4 font type official rules.... $50,000/yr for 20 years, no interest.

                    I won a Furby once... threw it out about a week after I got it because it was so annoying.

                    Only One "Boardwalk" is printed... there is usually always one "Instant Win" annuity-only million. Annuity-Schamuity.

                      I thought I had horrendously low chances to win on MM or PB, but THIS IS PATHETIC:

                      According to this, you could hit MM 100 TIMES and still not equal the chances you have to win a viper. BS

                        The people that whine about MM's odd beter read that sheet if they want to understand truely poor odds. Of course if you hit MM you can skip the viper and get something fancier if you want (or bullet resistant if you're paranoid).

                         

                        Your odds are off on winning MM twice. Odds of winning PB and MM with just two tickets would be 1 in 23,375,000,000,000,000. Just a little worse than even McDonalds odds. Winning MM twice would be even less likely. I suppose if you bought 1000 tickets over time your odds would decrease by a few zeros but with those odds its still a real long shot.

                              Why are you 40 times more likely to win $1 million than a Dodge Viper?
