    So every year we all see these little pieces attached to cups and boxes of McDonald's food. Most of the time I only ever put in a half effort to play, since I feel funny asking people to tell me when they go to McD, and never ever win anything. So I figured why not help someone else out cause I hate throwing something of any possible value away. I'll list what pieces I have and when I get more I'll post em.

    If anyone else wants to get in on trading/giving these things away to help a fellow member out, if you play of course, feel free. I just thought it would be a nice idea. I in no can establish any sort of rule regarding conduct of how you do this, BUT I can reconmend that if you sell any of them do so via EBAY. It requires that you have to tell the seller if the codes have been redemed online or not. If I'm in any sort of violation please remove.

    Anyway here is what I have, if you need em post:

    Park Place #770
    Pacific Avenue #767 (x2)
    Pennsylvania Railroad #773
    Baltic Avenue #751
    Connecticut Avenue #754
    St James Place #758

    I have more but I need to find em. Also my brother is looking for #765.

    I always assumed that two of any set of three were common as dirt, but the third is the one they only make a few of.

    Hence, trading them is fairly pointless, unless you find some fool that doesn't know what they're trading. At least that's my understanding.

    I am sure it will be fixed just like the last couple of times they had this.

    I think you missed the point. There's no point in trying to win it together because the only pieces that aren't common as dirt are rarer than diamonds.

    Nobody is going to share a Boardwalk with someone that provides a common-ass Park Place.

    it would be so logically flawed for the company to think like "oh we will release "broadwalk" as a common one in the west part of US, and parkplace at the east!".... they might as well as go bankrupt if they were that stupid.

    Making one piece "rare" is the only thing that makes sense.

    That was kinda my intention, I know we all mostly live in different parts of the country and may have pieces that others can't find in their area. I was gonna throw em away anyway so I figured may be I'd have one someone needs.

    McD ticked me off with this game..you have to BUY certain items in order to get the playing pieces and of course it's junk I never buy..Screw them.:thumbdown  :(  (I know, kinda hostile, but it's just the way I feel about this one)

    Ha ha! I never knew you felt so strongly about McD's! I can understand, especially if you tend to not eat there. The reason I actually thought about trying was because someone I knew won a car while we were on vacation. If not me why not someone else if I cant win.

    I won a Medium Fries in the game so I'm fine with it. I realized how little I eat a McDonalds the other day. I went Sunday & got a fish meal. It was the first time I got any pieces & the game was going on for a few weeks. A few years ago, I had tons of pieces meaning I had be going a lot.

    I wonder how many winning pieces are thrown away. Either not pealed off the item or person not into the game & doesn't know what they have. As far as I know I had a winning piece but didn't know since I don't have a ton of other pieces to realize which ones are rare.

    that's why they can keep on doing it.

    1. winning pieces are produced in limited quantity

    2. even if ppl find the winning piece they may not know that is a piece

    3. they may throw it away

    4. they may not bother to redeem before it is lost

    There are so many things that can happen.

    We (mom) won the Chevy Blazer with jet skies back in 1999 buy collecting the railroads. But I'm not sure how the last RR got it. The rules have changed so I don't do that anymore.
