The Monopoly game started Tuesday and I'm curious to see if anyone's gotten anywhere on that thing.

The most I've gotten is a free Extra Value Meal myself. However the Best Buy bucks come by the plenty. The most I've gotten is 23.

WWF: Mankind d. Undertaker in the first ever Buried Alive match at...WWF Buried Alive. Also, Steve Austin continued his efforts to bring Bret Hart back to the ring by turning on Brian Pillman, shattering his ankle in what to this day is known as "Pillmanizing".

WCW: Hulk Hogan d. Randy Savage in a main event no one cared about, but Roddy Piper came out immediately after to end Halloween Havoc with a bang. The Outsiders won their first WCW Tag Team titles by beating Harlem Heat.

The most I've won?

I've gotten plenty of pieces in the Monopoly game except the pieces I needed to win anything, naturally. One year my dad became obsessed with the darn promotion, and we ate at McDonald's far more than was probably safe, ending up with a game board that had absolutely every single game piece in existence-- except a winning one.

Of course, it probably didn't help that McDonald's promotion company had been embezzling money from the company for six years by rigging the contest so that the winning pieces weren't distributed to the general public.

The Monopoly game now has additional safety precautions to prevent such a thing from reoccuring, as well as offering more ways to win. But still the chances of collecting an entire color of Monopoly piece are astronomical enough that I won't bother going out of my way saying "Ooooh, I've got Park Place, now if I can only get Boardwalk!" Buying a lottery ticket would be cheaper than buying a Double Quarter Pounder value meal, anyway.

I've only won the food prizes (free drink, fries, sandwich, value meal).

I've always had (unfounded) suspicions that even if someone WAS to win, it would be set up so that the major winning pieces would go somewhere like New York or California. I can't see them sending it to somewhere with a much smaller population. I'm not actually sure how they determine where things go, though. Does anyone know?

The most I've won was an Egg McMuffin. That came in handy when I missed breakfast one day.

I never bother using the Best Buy coupons I get with my large fries, though.

Last year, I got on a McDonald's kick about the time Monopoly started, so I had breakfast and lunch there every weekday for about two weeks straight.

Others in my office noticed the game board on my desk and started contributing THEIR game pieces. I had about a dozen people bringing me stray pieces.

And I STILL didn't win anything except for a couple of free menu items.

Come to think of it, a Big Mac does sound pretty good about now...

Huh...I realize I posted this thread like 3 days ago...and today, I actually WON something!

While collecting pieces may or may not still be for suckers, apparently the online game is for real. I punched in a code and landed on GO, landing myself a $200 gift card from American Express.

The code came from a Baltic Avenue piece, no less.
