    As seen on Houston Craigslist and he's willing to split 85/15. Lucky you.

    OMG, I went to McDonalds this morning and with my last $3 I was able to purchase a breakfast sandwich. When I peeled the Monopoly gamepieces, I was in shock to see that I had gotten a BOARDWALK gamepiece. Im willing to go 85/15 with anyone.

    I cussed out my boss, quit my job and ready for anyone to call me and make this MONEY!!! Please respond ASAP!! Im willing to meet anywhere that my 1/4 tank of gas will take me!!!

    Let's be RICH together, respond ASAP!!!!!!

    I've heard of a few people with Boardwalk this year, seems to me Park Place must be the scarce one.

    In theory, if you did have the Boardwalk piece, and it truly was the only one in the country, wouldn't you just spend all of your free time buying every McDonalds Monopoly piece until you got the Park Place one?

    I don't understand why you would want to share it with anyone.

    I just toss the pieces. I don't go often enough to have a chance at winning anything.

    What's funny is everyone holding Park Place is willing to give those holding Boardwalk less than 50 percent of the prize.

    Congrats, Boardwalk winner.

    I will be happy to meet you in a dark alley in Houston. Have the game piece in your hand. I'll be wearing a ski mask, so I'll be easy to spot.

    Let's get rich, sort-of together!!!!

    I guess it depends on how rare Park Place is. Presumably there'd be a good number of them, but between instant win pieces and the other common pieces out there, it might take a while. And now the game is over, so if you have Boardwalk on its own, now you have to hope someome still has a Park Place to pair with it.

    I'm just saying, though. If you had the Boardwalk piece, wouldn't you just focus all your time and energy on getting the Park Place one? I don't think it's that rare and, even if it is, wouldn't you be willing to spend however many French Fry orders it takes to get it?

    No doubt. But it pays to have a backup plan. You'd hate not to have a Plan B if you get an unrelenting string of Baltic Avenues and B&O Railroads.
