      Can the Monopoly money be printed?

      •  

        My official Monopoly money just looks like it's printed on regular paper, so I'd have to say yes

          There's some downloadable money here at 'the official Monopoly fansite'.

          Thanks for that. Please refresh my memory, was the monopoly note printed double-sided or only on one side?
          Thanks.

          I doubt they'll call the cops if you hand them counterfeit monopoly notes.

          Counterfeit is counterfeit whether its fake real money or fake monopoly doesn't make a difference in the eyes of the law.

      You can buy monopoly replacement bills from a game store. Last I checked though it was $15 :/

      Lol, you know you're a true Ozbargainer if you pay with a $1 note (instead of $500), even though it has no "real" monetary value.

      • +7 votes

        no, u would pay with $500, and ask for change

  • +58 votes

    Reading the fine print: "No change will be given" - well, that's just outrageous! What sort of deal is this???

    • +3 votes

      Well, everyone in the shopping mill a frozen coke ON ME.

    •  

      =/ I was wondering if they had change for a $500 bill.

      Alas…

    i lol'd at this part " No change will be given from Monopoly money". No deal. So i give them $20 for a $2 frozen coke and they get to keep my $18.

      I was about to just chuckle at your comment, then realised I ought to hit Google first to see if you could be serious about such a thing existing. I'm genuinely horrified to discover there really is an electronic banking version of this game. I realise that most people (myself included) don't use a lot of cash these days but one of the joys of this game is that kids can play with parents, and it improves their numeracy skills when they're counting out cash.

      Looks like I'm adding another thing to the list of "Things That Were Better When I Was A Kid". #oldman

        Monopoly money laundering? :O

  • +2 votes

    I'm reluctant to give away my monopoly money meaning i'll have a incomplete set. However, will losing one monopoly bill, be worth it? Plus can't i just give a $1 bill, or a $1000 bill (smallest denomination) from the Monopoly U-build set? Doesn't say what monopoly set it'll accept. Honestly i'm rather confused as too why they doing this.

    •  

      Surely it's not that confusing… it's just a simple promotion to generate hype about the upcoming Monopoly promotion… and the article link that rawm has just posted shows that the media have taken the bait!

      From the article:
      "In the prize pool there's also more than one million cheeseburgers, two million sundaes and more than three million packets of small fries or fruit packs up for grabs."

      Which means if there is a "1 in 5 chance of winning" they will do at least 30 million sales to just give away these freebies… we do eat alot of Maccas in Australia!

        i went to kmart to get some a few years ago and it was $25 for the money or $30 for the new game. i went home and found some printable ones through google

    For all the people not wanting to give up their Monopoly money and have an incomplete set, what's stopping you from just printing some Monopoly money online?

    I'm sure Macca's won't mind. After all, I'm sure the notes you give them are just going in the bin anyway

    EDIT: Here you go, a link to a page of Monopoly money. Enjoy! http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fOkjzJyECgo/T8c8bpsPmLI/AAAAAAAABC...

    Asked the girlfriend about this as she works there, she said there is a sign at her work saying this is also for frappes and smoothies. Well she said small fsb products, or the ones that use the small clear cups.

    If you have access to a printer, you can print your own monopoly money. Hasbro allows people to print their own monopoly currency.

    $1: http://www.mediafire.com/?kek2v1excsgvid6
    $5: http://www.mediafire.com/?zr1fefpv6l7oa22
    $10: http://www.mediafire.com/?k4odh46ejlomjpm
    $20: http://www.mediafire.com/?l154miv9jay7nse
    $50: http://www.mediafire.com/?rzggchwxfqh1rw9
    $100: http://www.mediafire.com/?pw4i7ui6jmym115
    $500: http://www.mediafire.com/?b56zqik6u3kc5zd

    Now you can give $500 and tell them to keep the change.

    monopoly money for a company that seeks to be a monopoly.

    • +1 vote

      Just out of interest, what monopolistic behaviour has McDonalds exhibited?

      •  

        "a company that seeks to be a monopoly."

        no specific behaviour, but more of a pondering of the concept that "wouldn't any company want to be the only company in it's niche/industry?"

        In so far as Mcdonalds would rather not have hungry jacks, red rooster,etc to compete against for a market share.

        just as microsoft would rather be the only OS software developer. or as De Beers enjoys a majority share of diamond production, or Scotland enjoys pumping out rangas.

    i got lots of free fries/apple bags last time with their monopoly game. i just threw all my old stickers out but they did have a used by date but then its easy to get the common letters just need to figure out which ones they are early.

    I'm going to walk in there wearing a suit and dark sunglasses, along with a suitcase handcuffed to my wrist containing crisp $500 monopoly bills, wrapped around with white paper.

    Then place the suitcase on the counter, flip the locks and swivel the open case facing the cashier and say with an emotionless face, "one frozen coke please"

    I'd rather just go to Hungry Jacks and get a LARGE Frozen Coke for $1 still!

    I wonder how much $ Hungry Jacks is losing on that promo, and how much its impacted on Maccas's Frozen Coke sales?

      I don't even bother trying to get a $1 frozen coke at my local HJ'S if its above 30 degrees as the bloody machine can't handle the load.

    Someone should make a video of them getting their frozen coke with Monopoly money and put it up on YouTube. People from outside of Australia who don't know about this promotion will think you're amazing! (or a clever criminal…)
