Took my daughter to Dave and Busters in Orlando to celebrate a strong report card when we came upon WOF, J! And PYL "Game Boxes" for 1400 points each.

We did not look inside the boxes but, based on the descriptions, the game material was in English and French. I found some basic info on Walmart Canada's website (which included a pair of FF boxes), but that's it.

My daughter had enough points to get at least one box, but she opted for a My Hero Academia poster and a kazoo.

IIRC, those versions are in English and French, except for WOF, which is English only.   The pair of FF game boxes are the Kids edition and a "movies," edition (both English and French).

My question is how much was the kazoo.

I also finally may have my excuse to go to my local D&B which has been open for about four years now and which I have still yet to visit.

Here are the boxes in question that I saw at the Orlando D&B ...

The kazoo was 100 points -- my daughter's prize selection is improving. When she started going, she would redeem for Fun Dip and only Fun Dip.

First, congratulations to your daughter. Also, how did she roll up that kind of bankroll?

Quick curious question:

Yesterday I was at a collectibles store where a wrestler (Danhausen) was doing a signing, and while we were in line waiting it for start I was browsing a little, and I happened across a Tic-Tac-Dough home game in fairly good condition for $10, so I snapped it up. Turns out it was mostly content complete; I don't think all of the play money was there (maybe, but I doubt it? Seems like a small stack), but definitely all of the question cards, and as a bonus, a complete set of static-cling X's and O's from a Hollywood Squares home game. (Well, ok then!)

Here's the question: The Bonus Game cards, according to the instruction sheet, should have had eight dollar values and Teh Dragon. (Yes, I know.) But for some reason I have six dollar values and three Dragons. Obviously I don't care; it's 2022 and I could make my own set of Bonus Game cards (complete with proper TIC and TAC, of course) that would blow these out of the water if I cared that much. But I can't remember from my original set back in the day; was that a content mistake or did this previous owner actually cull this together out of three sets?

I wonder if the game had extra Dragons, because you need those, and the money tabs were seen as more expendable. I recall mine having eight money and one critter—no TIC or TAC.

Yours at least matches up with what the rulesheet says should be there. I didn't get around to checking which money amounts were missing, to see if they were actually trying to match up with the ones that existed in a TIC-TAC-Dragon configuration.

Semi-OT question:  Is there any place someone could buy large amounts of Milton Bradley play money, outside of pilfering it from many innocent home editions?  I'm teaching Financial Literacy next semester and my principal suggested using Monopoly money for simulations, but multiply the values times 10.  Forget that; I know there are $5000 bills in MB bucks.

If anybody can help, cool.  If I need to sacrifice some home games for the cause, cool but with reluctance.

I saw some eBay sellers and interesting things on etsy, but when I needed "monopoly money" I just made my own. I found a decent enough picture of Life money which was my first inclination for big bills.

I’ve sold some play money on eBay from MB, Life and Payday. Mike, I sent you a private message.

This is what I believe the rulesheet told me to expect. Anyone know offhand what the TIC-TAC-Dragon money distribution was?
