In CLOVIS-OPOLY, there is no jail. But there is a House of JuJu. Which one’s better?

A Clovis-centric Monopoly has popped up now, with multiple Walmarts in Clovis selling CLOVIS-OPOLY — a Monopoly-like board game that features popular Clovis locations as properties rather than traditional landings spots like “Marvin Gardens and Reading Railroad.”

Feeling left out of the FRESNO-OPOLY craze?

Because your favorite local spots didn’t make the board game’s cut?

Or because the Fresno-style Monopoly game sold out quickly and you couldn’t get one?

Well, have no fear.

A Clovis-centric Monopoly has popped up, too, now.

Locally customized board games like CLOVIS-OPOLY and FRESNO-OPOLY have landed in local stores recently.

Multiple Walmarts in Clovis are selling CLOVIS-OPOLY — a Monopoly-like board game that features popular Clovis locations as properties rather than traditional landings spots such as “Marvin Gardens and Reading Railroad.”

In this version, you can beat your friends and family by owning the likes of Clovis Rodeo Grounds, Wild Water Adventure Park and No Surrender Adventure Park.

Or if you roll poorly, you could get stuck in a “Traffic Jam” — rather than “Go to Jail.” Because in this version of Habros’ classic Monopoly, there are no jails.

Both games are made by the Ohio-based company called “Late for the Sky,” which has made specific city- and college-based Monopoly games since 1984.

Copies of FRESNO-OPOLY sold out quickly.

But as of Saturday evening, the Walmart Supercenter near Clovis and Herndon avenues and the Walmart off near Peach and Shaw avenues still had copies of CLOVIS-OPOLY.

The game was selling for $19.98.
