Couple Finds $18k Worth Of Diamond Rings In A $2 Board Game, Returns Treasure To Owners





A young Aussie couple has made an incredible discovery inside a $2 board game box. Chris Lightfoot and Mandy Flack decided to have a quiet night with their parents and play a board game. This decision will soon make them viral.

Chris and his girlfriend Mandy moved from Sydney to Toronto, Canada, earlier this year. They came across a game of enigmas called Mind Trap in an op-shop that they could play with their family. However, they ended up discovering six diamond rings hidden inside.

Chris said:

“I figured my parents were in town, so we’re not exactly going to have a wild night out drinking, I thought maybe we would go to the thrift shop and pick up some board games.”

They decided to purchase a game called “Mind Trap” and played it. Chris’ mom asked some questions from the riddle game and when she put the cards back in, they won’t fit.

He continued:

“She reaches in and pulls out a diamond ring and then another, and another and another … We are just standing there looking at each other like holy sh*t is this for real.”

Hidden inside were the six stunning diamond rings, collectively worth $18,000.

“A couple of them are worth five grand… to be honest I thought about heading back to the store and buying every board game they had,” Chris joked. “When our visa is up, we thought about buying a new boat and just setting sail to the Bahamas.”

The couple decided to keep the rings in case they needed emergency funds.

However, Chris and Mandy revealed that after their story went viral, the owners of the board game tracked the couple down and called them. The owners live on the island the board game was purchased on, and the couple decided to return their pricey discovery.
