    there's like 2 boardwalks in the whole set of game pieces every year, so if that's true you're probably a millionaire

    Maybe it's Park Place I forget.

    I just always get a blue one every year. One year I had two of the same blue pieces

    yeah

    because there's like millions of the pieces and you stay on a wild goose chase for the others. you'll get like 2/3 or 1/2 but never get the other, so you stay playing. the odds of getting a boardwalk or a piece to complete your set are really small

    I think last time we had this thread a guy posted that his buddy who worked at McDonalds stole several cases of cups and brought them home, but after peeling all the pieces was able to make no matches due to the odds being:

    Thia sounds like the type of guy that would somehow win and not realize as an employee he wouldn't be eligible to win. This would lead them to become :skepticalhippo: and find out he stole the cups, lose his job and be prosecuted.

    I thought about saying that, but I have more respect for those in college/high-school/just needing a job that work at McDonald's instead of doing nothing.

    Not really how it works.

    For the ones you need 3 pieces to match for instance, they have a fucking shitload of two of the pieces, then like 80 of the third one. They hope you get those first two, then buy Mcdonalds a fuckton trying to get the third. Its actually one of the most successful promotions that any company runs.

    In 1995, St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee received an anonymous letter postmarked Dallas, Texas, containing a $1 million winning game piece. Although game rules prohibited the transfer of prizes, McDonald's waived the rule and is making the $50,000 annual payments.[5] Investigations later indicated, and he, himself, admitted, that Jacobson had sent the winning piece to the hospital.[6]
