I know it seems I only come on this forum when I have some shameless self promotion to do but here goes:

I got super bored the other day and decided it would be fun to expose what the real value of those little Mcdonalds monopoly pieces is. So I've done all the math and come up with some preliminary results [Smile]

Here it is, let me know what you think.

I always thought that the McDonalds Monopoly game was a very clever marketing technique: you can make two properties as common as you'd like, creating the perception of being near winning, but without a much rarer third piece, the other two are useless.
