Someone in Canada made a sidewalk Monopoly board to play while social distancing
Grab your dice, because people in Canada just made an epic life-size version of Monopoly — and it'll put your Sunday family game nights to shame.
A group of women in Edmonton, Alta. teamed up to create the "Social Distancing Monopoly," and luckily for the rest of us, they decided to share some photos of their masterpiece to Facebook.

According to the Facebook post, it took the women three days to create the detailed boardgame, which can be found in Edmonton's Crestwood community.
It was impossible to get all of the Monopoly sidewalk chalk art game purged into one frame, so I did a video.

All five women remained six feet apart while they constructed their artistic masterpiece.

The board game has all of Monopoly's iconic features, including the Community Chest, Jail, and a variety of properties available for a rather affordable $60.

Amazingly, it seems that creating life-size Monopoly games is becoming a trend throughout the pandemic; last week, a family in Grimes, Iowa created their own version of the classic board game over four hours on a Sunday.

No word yet on if you can collect $200 each time you pass go.
