It has only been a week since McDonald's started their annual Monopoly promo. I have been playing one meal a day (I can barely stand McDonald's food) and I won a free game download from Real Arcade. I had the choice of either "Monopoly-Here & Now" or "Yahtzee". Since I collect the Monopoly board games I took the Monopoly Here & Now game.

It's cool because I was looking at buying it ($20) now I don't have to. It sucks because If something happens to my PC the game is gone. The download sends an install key and downloads to your PC fully installed. There is a slight redeeming factor though I have 18 months of download availability of the game from Real Arcade. My only gripe is that I want the CD for the game too.

wtf?

I thought it was only a myth that people really are dumb enough to buy things only because of the glimmer of a reward at the end.

I only play because I am addicted to Monopoly and the high you get from making imaginary real estate transactions and trying to make more money off people by building imaginary buildings for them to rent whenever they pass by. I also am caught by the whole "GO" thing and getting money from free parking. The promotion at McDonald's only ensures that I am well fed during the process.

Also I am a winner and you are not.

Quoted from Sukkit:
Lotteries are not about hope or rewards, but about envy.


Yes, envy me for I have won a Monopoly game from a Monopoly game...somethings not right about that statement.

I currently own two yellow properties, a red one, a railroad and a 20% off at foot locker. I should take a bunch of people out to eat and harvest their monopoly pieces.

my least favorite thing about promotions, is all the spam that comes with it "Selling Park Place and Boardwalk!!!".

Now, the occasional eating crap food, and the shot at winning, is fine, but...come on...you're not thinking straight if you're voluntarily eating that ickyness day after day, just to get a free download...
if you're going to do that, wait until it's something you enjoy eating/drinking.

I'm waiting for the Monster promotions.

Your just furthering the stereotype that Americans will eat fatty foods for prizes.
Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

We played this far too much last year. We won a few games, some prints at kinko's or something, and a cell phone ring tone, among more greasy food.

It was absolutely sickening, but hilarious at the same time.

Umm...there's a big difference between this McDonalds Monopoly promotion and the lottery. What happens if you buy a lottery ticket and lose? You've just wasted your money. What if you buy an extra value meal, and don't get anything useful from the monopoly pieces? You eat your delicious McDonald's meal and walk away contented. And note that you're walking away towards your bathroom.

Plus, I'm making a killing this year. I've won a medium fries. How fucking sweet is that?

Anyone do anything online with this? Might not be a terrible idea if it's a really quick thing.

My wife is getting excited about the Toys R Us coupons. She works with kids in a birth to three program and she likes to get new toys to keep kids interested.

The online game is ok...they use your email & birth date to keep track of your properties collected. You can only enter 10 codes a day. Yesterday they had a crash which voided the code I had entered at the time. It only takes about ten minutes or so to enter all ten codes. So it kinda goes along with checking email or something.

So far I've won three breakfast sandwiches on the instant win. Which is cool cause the McDonald's nearest to where I live upgrades the coupon to the value meal.


I should've done my own Supersize Me documentary as I'm starting to feel ill just eating there once a day.

We should compile a list of who has what pieces and then share. Odds would be increased that way.
