Humboldt County is now memorialized in game form and is available for sale locally.

Humboldt County-opoly is made by Late for the Sky, an Ohio-based company that specializes in making custom games and offers a wide range of “-opoly”-style games featuring various cities, counties, universities and businesses across the country.

“We research several cities and communities around California to make a very localized game about a specific area,” said company co-owner Bill Schulte in a statement. “We always make sure that the locals love their town before we take on a project. We try to make the content as authentic as possible.”

The Humboldt County-opoly features a variety of local locations and businesses including Centerville Beach, the Clarke Museum, Avenue of the Giants, Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse and Samoa Cookhouse. Instead of the traditional railroads on a Monopoly board, Humboldt County-opoly features local rivers.

The catchphrase printed on the box states its “a fun game celebrating the redwood curtain.”

The game is available for sale at Walmart in Eureka. The store confirmed this morning that more than 100 copies are on hand. It retails for $19.98.
