The Ramona High School Dynasty Band and Color Guard were certified today by Guinness World Records as having the Largest Monopoly Board Game ever. The certification is not for the amount of people, but rather, the size of the board. The game was played on January 22, 2016, gargantuan dice and all, and the results were immediately sent off to Guinness for certification.
Ramona’s Monopoly game board was massive: an 8,017.69 square foot feat of design and craftsmanship. The only place on campus large enough to construct the board was the football field. In fact, that is how the whole idea came about.
“When we constructed the board game, we had no idea that it would become a world record,” explained Ramona Band Director Brian Gallagher. “We just needed to occupy the appropriate space of the football field for the event. Fast forward 6 months later, and we now have an official Guinness World Record to call our own!”
