A COUPLE were left stunned after pulling up an old carpet in their home and finding a huge Monopoly board sketched on the floor.
The popular game board had been painted onto the floor years earlier by previous owners.
The current homeowners took a photo of the board, which features the popular London properties and rail stations from the family-favourite game.
It even has the community chest, chance and a jail.
The discovery was an unexpected surprise by the couple, and was shared online by their son-in-law.
Taking to Reddit, he wrote: “While tearing up their carpet, my in-laws found a giant monopoly board.”
His post has racked up more than 8,200 upvotes and 1,300 comments.
It turns out that massive floor games were once popular decades ago,
One Reddit user wrote: “It was a style for playrooms back in the day.”
Another said: “Showed this to my wife, and she reminded me that there’s a whole neighbourhood 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.”
A third commented: “I’ll never forget always wanting one of these when I was younger.”
Many people said the couple should try and keep the Monopoly board as their floor, and the son-in-law admitted he was trying to convince them.
One said: “I hope they keep it!”
The son-in-law said: “Trying to convince them to cover it in epoxy and do the rest of the flooring around it how they originally wanted.”
