    I was just wondering if anyone knows which ones are the hard ones out of the sets to get. Like I know boardwalk is the hard to get one for boardwalk/parkplace. I was wondering about the rest of them.

    Does anyone know?

    Mine was helpful!, It's always the most expensive of the properties that's hard to get. Boardwalk and what have you...i can't remember all the names mostly because I play Muppet monopoly.

    yes, i know that.

    but out of the harder ones, say you need 3 total to win, there will be 2/3 that you will get on a regular basis at mcdonalds. there is just 1/3 that is the impossible one to get.

    i am wondering which ones are the impossible ones to get.

    no, your reply was not helpful. park place is more expensive than baltic avenue but getting baltic avenut is much harder to get than park place, because baltic avenus is the hard game piece to get out of its set to win the ipod.

    Look at the Monopoly board. It's the third property, the most expensive one.

    There should be a thread about tracking who has which pieces and finding a match.

    that is what i assumed, and the reason I'm asking, is because I have illinois ave, which is the 3rd one on the red colored ones.

    and if that is the hard to get one, i'm going to buy mcdonalds food until i get the other 2 because its the $30,000 in BB cash.

    I remember way back when I looked at the first game they had, they listed the probability of getting certain pieces. It's fine print, but it should be there.

    He means the most expensive in a set dude! Like Park Place is blue right? So is Broadway so Broadway is more $$$ and harder to get. Check out the property prices on your MB Monopoly board if you need a roadmap.

    Consiquently, Illinois Ave (most $$$ property) is the tough one to get for the red set...
    etc, etc.

    so, specifically for the purple, Baltic Ave. is really the harder one to get?

    MediterraneanAvenue
    Vermont Avenue
    Virginia Avenue
    Tennessee Avenue
    Kentucky Avenue
    Ventnor Avenue
    Pennsylvania Ave
    Boardwalk
