So for a while now, McDonald’s has been doing their whole Monopoly game. Unfortunately, this year we (Tin and I) were hooked in. We were in downtown Los Angeles and needed to grab a bite to eat before attending a concert, lo and behold, there was a McDonald’s nearby. Neither of us had eaten at McD’s for…at least a year. It just so happened that Monopoly had just started, and we’re sucker for contests. So we’ve compiled a small stack of the same Monopoly pieces.

After a while, we noticed that the pieces were the same repeats and realized that we weren’t any closer to winning any of the prizes. The way the game is structured makes people believe that they actually have a better chance at winning than they actually do. The reason is because they make one piece out of every color extremely rare, but most people don’t notice that. Another complaint is that they’re not consistent with their game pieces! We’ve experienced multiple occasions where there were missing pieces on specified food orders, and the employees aren’t always nice about this either.

Rare McDonald’s Monopoly Game Pieces

If you’re able to get your hands on any of these pieces, well then, you’re as good as golden:

We literally have stacks of every piece that isn’t the rare piece, and all we got were two McFlurries, two breakfast sandwiches and a few spare tires for our troubles. Good thing this thing ends on November 5th. Man, this post makes me sad.
