A commenter on the post added, “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.” Who knew? See the photo below for another time a Reddit user found a painted Monopoly board under their carpet!

Although I’m sure the in-laws proceeded with their new flooring choice, I can only imagine their surprise finding a life-size Monopoly board under ordinary-looking carpet. Do you think they decided to play before covering it up? It definitely makes for a fun story!

Life-sized versions of board games often have a slightly creepy air about them – Jumanji, anyone?

From dated tiles to antique windows, many old houses have unusual features that tell their history. However, some of these characteristics remain hidden until the new residents decide to make some home improvements. Redditor Yamaha234 recently shared a now-viral photo of what his in-laws found after they ripped up old carpet in their home. They discovered a giant Monopoly board painted underneath.

The room-sized Monopoly board is based on the classic U.S. version of the game, complete with Chance and Community Chest spaces, a jail, and railroads. Iconic sought-after spaces such as Park Place and Boardwalk also feature. The giant floor edition appears to have been hand-painted by the previous homeowners years ago.

Many people online hope the new discovery will encourage the new homeowners to rethink their home improvement plans. One Redditor writes, “Did this change their plans? (I hope so, think of the grandchildren).” Yamaha234 replied,  “[I’m] trying to convince them to cover it in epoxy and do the rest of the flooring around it how they originally wanted.” Hopefully they take a chance on the board for the community (chest).
