111,111 Arrives with 11 from Monopoly and Halo

After reaching my all-time goal of 100,000 on August 31st, the next plan was to reach the popular quirk of 111,111 which successfully arrived on December 9th after a split session between Monopoly Deal and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

SettlerHelpful dealThe day began with co-op play with Tonyboykid on Monopoly Deal, a card game based on the Monopoly series and saw a haul of seven achievements earned beginning with Helpful deal (180G) for using a 'Forced Deal' card which resulted in both players completing a property set. Settler (50G) popped up for having at least 12 properties on the board.

More cards!CollectorCollector (60G) unlocked for having one kind of each property on the board and was soon followed by the popping up of More cards! (20G) for playing three 'Pass Go' cards in a single turn.

TacticianGimme moneyGimme money (40G) unlocked after using five 'Rent' cards during a game while Tactician (30G) popped up for using a 'Deal Breaker' as a final move to win a game.

Master Forger in Halo: The Master Chief CollectionInvestorThe session ended with the unlocking of Investor (20G) for adding a hotel to a property set but the unlock left me just short of my target so I decided to try a quick go on another game. The game of choice was Halo:The Master Chief Collection which in a brief stint resulted in four achievements starting with Master Forger (5G) for creating five custom maps in Forge.

Man on the Moon in Halo: The Master Chief CollectionGame Master in Halo: The Master Chief CollectionGame Master (5G) unlocked for creating five custom game types and put me onto 111,101 leaving 10G left to earn. Man on the Moon (5G) popped up for shooting the moon on a Halo 3 map and left me with just 5G left to do.
Back At It in Halo: The Master Chief CollectionThe vital 5G came with the unlocking of Back At It (5G) for playing a game of Halo 2 Anniversary on the 9th of any month which secured the 111,111.
