Homeowners Find a Giant Monopoly Board Painted on the Floor While Tearing Out the Carpet

Gamer Yamaha234 shared on Reddit a surprising discovery that his in-laws made underneath the carpet of a room in their home. The couple had been tearing out the carpet when a giant Monopoly board that was pained directly onto the floorboards began peeking through.

While tearing up their carpet, my in-laws found a giant monopoly board.

According to one commenter, the practice of painting board games onto basement floors wasn’t all that uncommon, particularly in the mid-20th century.

Showed this to my wife, and she reminded me that there’s a whole neighborhood near us, built in the mid-50s, that has game boards painted or tiled onto their basement floors. Seems to have been a selling point or something.

Yamaha234 just hopes his in-laws will keep it as is.

Trying to convince them to cover it in epoxy and do the rest of the flooring around it how they originally wanted.
