Many Electronic Arts games appear to be on sale today. It’s looking like an Easter sale, up to 80% off, so it may be throughout the weekend; no promises though… scrabble-badge-notification.pngScrabble $2.99

  • Dragon’s Lair $2.99
  • Monopoly $2.99
  • BattleShip $1.99
  • Connect Four $1.99
  • Life $1.99
  • Boggle $0.99
  • Yahtzee $1.99
  • Spore Origins $0.99
  • And a few more.

    I only own a few: Scrabble is awesome (and lets you play over the Internet via Facebook) I did a review here, Boggle, Lemonade Tycoon and Sim City are all pretty good. Do you play any of the EA games?

    * These are affiliate links, so I get a (very) small kickback if you buy one of these. But it is a really good deal on some of these games.

    This is one of the best deals for games at Target that I’ve seen in ages:
    Hasbro Games Monopoly Deal Card Game Hasbro Games
    Monopoly Deal (card game) and Bop It for $1.00; that’s Bop It for $14 ($5 manufacturers coupon and a $3 Target coupon) with the free (Hasbro purchases over $10) Monopoly card game (and also using a $5 off Monopoly manufacturers coupon). Need 3 coupons total.
    or
    Connect 4 and Monopoly Deal (card game) for $2.00! That’s Connect 4 for $14 ($4 manufacturers coupon and a $3 Target coupon) with the free (Hasbro purchases over $10) Monopoly card game (using a $5 off Monopoly manufacturers coupon). Need 3 coupons total.

    So in essence, they’re paying you $5 to take the free Monopoly Deal card game (which is rated 5 stars at Amazon).

    Here’s a link to the coupons over at SlickDeals.net. Just so you know, you actually print these coupons come from Coupons.com and Target.com so they are legit and if you’ve never used either coupon site, they will want to install some kind of coupon printer application (for your Macintosh or Windows PC).

    Just a quick tip on winning: The easy way to remember which pieces are the winning game pieces for this year’s Monopoly game is they are the last piece alphabetically in their set; except in the case of Boardwalk (which is the major winning game piece).

    Be sure to keep me in mind if you use this tip to win the big bucks ;)

    I believe this is the same system they’ve used in the previous five years (possibly longer).

    My problem with this is remembering the other pieces in the sequence to know if it’s the last one alphabetically…

    Water Works – $50 – Odds 1 in 639,000
    Mediterranean Avenue – $100 – Odds 1 in 5,701,000
    Short Line Railroad – $500 – Odds 1 in 311,389,700
    Vermont Avenue – $1,000 – Odds 1 in 106,921,400
    Virginia Avenue – $2,000 – Odds 1 in 106,921,400
    Tennessee Avenue – $5,000 – Odds 1 in 307,947,900
    Kentucky Avenue – $10,000 – Odds 1 in 307,947,900
    Ventnor Avenue – $25,000 – Odds 1 in 769,869,600
    Pennsylvania Avenue – $50,000 – Odds 1 in 769,869,600
    Golden Avenue – $100,000 – Odds 1 in 178,065,100
    Boardwalk – $1,000,000 – Odds 1 in 591,287,650

    Pretty slim odds, even for the low-end prizes.

    * FYI – This is what I found out from looking around on-line and is the system I’m using. I don’t have any connection with the official game/rules.
