Stereotyping Black People: Part Board Game, Part Social-Commentary, All Bad
The Game of Life board game has been one of Americas all time favorite board game designs for generations. This is because The Game of Life was created in order to replicate real life events and societal rights of passage.
There’s only one problem. When Milton Bradley decided to make The Game of Life board game in 1860, they didn’t factor in the unique social and political prejudices faced by black people in America. Thankfully, we’re about to change all this.
Stereotyping Black People: The Ultimate Social Justice Board Game
Unlike The Game of Life board game, Stereotyping Black People allows players to experience life from a uniquely black perspective. Designed to promote better understanding and empathy, the game starts each player off in the hood where your task is to overcome everyday social justice issues – while inflicting them on your fellow black people – in order to leave the hood and win the game.
Part Board Game, Part Social Justice Tool, All Fun
Combining a traditional board game design with 40 unique character cards, 40 unique ‘help a brother out’ cards, 40 unique ‘keep a brother down’ cards, and 120 (40 unique) item cards, Stereotyping Black People is an authentic piece of social commentary depicting black life in America. The game pits all players against each other as they attempt to be the first to escape the hood. Players move forward by correctly matching the color of the cards they play (either black or white) with the color of the selected event (either black or white).
