As you get closer to the birth of your new baby, you may start to wonder whether you should stick with a name from one of those baby books, or whether you should go off the beaten path and name your child after, let’s say, your favorite character.
Some people have done this successfully, such as Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller who (with his wife’s blessing, we assume) decided to name his daughter Moxie Crimefighter. Who can’t say that a crimefighter isn’t a favorite character somewhere along the way?
But let’s say that you have more personal favorites from the world of books, games, food products, or other marketing. Why wouldn’t you want to name your child after one of those characters… if ONLY YOU KNEW WHAT THEIR REAL NAMES WERE?!?!?
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
That’s the case with the annual McDONALD’S MONOPOLY GAME, where hungry people all over attempt to collect a set of deed cards to fill out their Monopoly game board in an attempt to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes.
With HASBRO’S RECENT NEWS about how they’re asking for Monopoly fans to choose which game piece / token that they want to add to the classic board game (Web Watch is hoping for the Toy Robot, ourselves) – they really are ignoring the bigger question about the Monopoly board game.
No, it isn’t “why don’t people actually like playing it as they get older?” Frankly, Web Watch would love to have a Monopoly game night on occasion, if only we could find other similarly minded folks to join us.
We’re talking the real-for-real rules, that nobody ever bothers to read. As Web Watch has mentioned before, the official Monopoly rules are designed to make a standard game of Monopoly be played in just an hour or two – no need to grind out the $1 from your friends over a weekend of slow playing.
Web Watch would like to take a moment to salute the marketing geniuses at McDonald’s for continuing the McDONALD’s MONOPOLY PROMOTION. It combines two great things into a singular quest to find the special missing sticker that will complete your game board. Boo-ya!
Let’s cut straight to the chase: there is absolutely nothing for you to do that will affect your ability to win this contest… other than doing everything you can to obtain as many game pieces as possible in the hopes that one of them is a rare chaser piece.
