Thread: Albertson's Monopoly Game 2014 Rare Pieces

    Albertson's Monopoly Game 2014 Rare Pieces

    If you live in California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming, and shop at Albertson's, you will notice they just started a Monopoly game, with prizes from $5 to $1,000,000.

    Don't bother collecting pieces. Just look for these rare ones. The others are easy to obtain (or buy very cheaply online).

    Some pieces are semi-rare to go along with a rare one, making the game very hard to win. I got a rare $5,000 piece in 2012 in a different game, but I never found someone to trade/buy the semi-rare one, so it ended up being worthless.

    Here are the pieces you're looking for. Where I list two, it means that one is rare and one is semi-rare, so keep both (not sure which is which yet):

    $5 Grocery Gift Card - A889
    $10 Grocery Gift Card - B887
    $15 Monopoly Board Game - C882
    $25 Cash - D879
    $25 Grocery Gift Card - E874
    $50 Grocery Gift Card - F871
    $100 Grocery Gift Card - G866
    $250 Cash - H864
    $250 Grocery Gift Card - I860
    $500 XBOX One - J854
    $500 Apple iPad Air - K849
    $1000 Free Groceries - L848
    $2,500 Free Groceries - M843
    $5,000 ATV or Camping Package - N839
    $10,000 Family Vacation - P832 (rare) and P835 (semi-rare)
    $25,000 Backyard Makeover - R828 and R829
    $40,000 Motorcycle or Boat - S823 and S825
    $40,000 Vehicle of Your Choice - T820 and T821
    $100,000 Cash - V812 (semi-rare) and V816 (rare)
    $500,000 Dream Home - W807 (rare) and W809 (semi-rare)
    $1,000,000 Cash - X803 (semi-rare) and X805 (rare)

    If you get one of the pieces where you need two, you are unlikely to get the other. Start scouring the internet for blogs and message boards discussing it, and post like crazy that you have the piece and need that other specific piece.

    As a funny aside, in 2012 when I had that $5,000 rare piece, I was contacted by someone who claimed they had the other piece, so I got all excited and asked for their phone number.

    It turned out it was some girl in her early 20s from Newhall, CA (about 30 miles north of LA) and she was really confused. She had the same rare piece I did, and we both needed the semi-rare one. While I was trying to explain it to her, she started to flirt with me and attempted to stay on the phone as long as possible. I've been with Ben's mom since 2009, so I politely ignored it and got off the phone. To be fair, I never told her how old I was, so maybe she thought I was somewhat near her age. I also heard a young kid in the background, so maybe she was looking for a new baby daddy.

    Also don't bother wasting your time with those stupid online sweepstakes codes they tell you to enter. You have almost zero chance of winning.

    Circumstances behind a girl in her early 20's that wants to mate are highly irrelevant.

    With the caveat that you need to evaluate the potential for problems of a psychotic, police and/or enraged husband nature.

    I don't understand how the police get involved in any way, shape or form, other than that she may like to play dress up, but I didn't see that implied anywhere. The other 2 are still irrelevant. All women are nuts and most have a guy somewhere.

    Don't bother collecting unless you have one of the pieces above.

    They aren't worth the effort of keeping. In the event you get a rare piece, the others will be easy to either get again or buy super cheaply on the web.

    BTW, I went to Albertson's on my Rocky Mountains area trip in the summer. Was nice to have a familiar supermarket around. I went there like 3 times in the various states I visited.

    Hi. This isn't really a forum for game pieces, though this does index high in google for the search of rare pieces for this game.

    If I do come up with W807 by some miracle, I will be glad to make a deal with you. The odds of getting both is tiny.

    You might want to try several Craigslist ads in the various areas served by Albertson's to see if you get any bites. This piece is too valuable to let go to waste, and someone out there will get W807.

    One is more valuable than the other, though. I guess time will tell which is rare and which is semi-rare.

    Tight thread. In other news, I once matched some lotto tickets that were very very close...i mean, you wouldn't even believe what I could have won

    Wow. I really hope you find someone with X805!

    I'm pretty sure Albertson's made the game this way so none of the big prizes get won early on. They hope nobody finds the second rare piece for any of those large prizes, and then they just give them away in the sweepstakes when they aren't claimed.

    This way they can keep the excitement of the contest going throughout, rather than news getting out in Week #2 that some guy got the $1,000,000 prize.

    Anyway, here is my suggestion regarding X805:

    Browse the internet and see how many others get X803 or X805. One piece might be "semi-rare" and the other rare (just one of them). If you have the semi-rare one, take any reasonable offer from someone with X805 -- don't hold out for half. If you have the rare one, don't sell yours for half.

    Also, given the money involved, do not give the person any money until it has been verified by Albertson's to be legit. You two can present the pieces together for verification if necessary.

    Just found out your X803 is semi-rare. So if you can find someone with X805, you should accept a low price on it and be done.

    I updated the list with a few rare and semi-rare pieces.

    I have the semi rare V812 for the $100,000. Anyone out there have the matching V816?

    Damn - my dinky little town doesn't have an Albertson's anymore.
