You Know You Are African When…(Game)
The game of African stereotypes and reactions.
How many times have you been asked if you speak African? How many times have you rolled your eyes when the insect in the “feed children in Africa” commercial appears? Or when a friend who has never left the continent has a British accent?
What is the first thing that you think of when you hear these words: African parents, African nurses, a black cat, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt? We all use stereotypes, even without knowing it. This is a really fun game on the stories and experiences of Africans on the continent and in the diaspora.
In the box: 50 Question cards, 270 Answer cards and a game guide.
It’s a pretty straightforward game. Each round, a rotating dictator (decision maker) reads a Question card and citizens (players) answer with the best fitting or funniest Answer card in
their hand. The dictator reads the Answer cards aloud and decides who wins each round. A new round starts, and a new dictator takes over.
