Pulled Up the Carpet, Found Monopoly Floor, Got Divorced

A certain Mr. Nyeland Newel of Fresno, California, was doing a bit of DIY home repair and started with ripping up a rug in the 1930s-era bungalow house he and his wife owned. Much to both their surprise, they uncovered wooden floors and a full-sized Monopoly board. Instead of the usual version it featured silhouettes of naked women.

Newel and his wife played the game once — using traditional Monopoly rules — but then his wife had him paint most of the game over. “She wanted a classic look,” Newel said. “That’s probably why we divorced. We never got over the floor.”

Newel moved out of the home last year but posted pictures of the floor on Reddit. He considers it his karmic duty to continue the game motif in his new bachelor digs. “But I think I’m going with Scrabble this time,” he said.
