The cashier will always ask, Are you playing the Monopoly Game? I might add, enthusiasm is lost in the translation.
I am a gamer and I will try "almost" anything "once". I believe I have been playing the Monopoly Game at Acme since its inception.
It has been a few years now that I have come close to winning my dream vacation home at the beach. I have also bore witness to that home being listed on the market and sold.
Several times, I have been one ticket away from the "BIG" prize.
My complaints lie in not the monopolizing of my time. I choose to rip open those tickets, discard the perforated ends and open up the possible answer to acquiring my happy place. I'll do it while I am watching FAKE NEWS. Perhaps that is the problem and I should mix it up.
Finding that number followed by letter on the board can be a challenge, I only like the 8's X Y and Z they are simple to find and no rotation of the board is necessary.
Free additional tickets are okay because it gives you another glimmer of hope, maybe I will win next time.
The coupons are cool and maybe with 50 cents off I will try the Pirate Puffs, normally I would nit even give the a second glance.
The FREE donuts or bagel has intrigued me. Granted I know donuts and bagels are not on the best foods list but every thing in moderation right, It is not a monopoly on the market.
Here was what I was able to monopolize on at my last visit to the Acme Market.
Signature Facial Tissues
Signature Sandwich Bags
2 Everything Bagels
Final Cost $0
and a little of my time
The game runs until the end of May and I look forward to a chance to purchase that dream summer home or perhaps I'll enjoy another everything bagel.
Note: I am not trying to promote any contests or business just expressing life through my own experience. I try to be a gamer and accept life's little victories when they come along with the vision that doesn't happen every day.
After the donuts and everything bagel are gone, I just want to say, what's up with the having to check additional tickets on line. It gets exhausting and it's a full time job! At least, I am not working for peanuts I suppose. A win is a win and free is free.
