Intro: In African and Caribbean cultures, telling stories has long been a part of life. These tales have been loved by children for a long time, and they have been handed on to generations to come.
Insights: In Africa, it is customary for folklore tales to be passed down orally by a griot, a musician, and a historian who travels while preserving local legends and history. On the nights, when friends and family are gathered together outside under the stars, stories are recounted and retold on the Caribbean islands. Africans under slavery brought the majority of the Caribbean tales to the islands from their native continent. Folklore from Europe and East Asia later had an impact on the story.
Solution: A board game that honors great stories and encourages imaginative play in kids. Three creepy, mysterious folktales from Africa and the Caribbean served as the basis for this game. They contain tales of creatures and spirits that have human-like speech and behavior. Join us on this adventure and assist Raina, Kojo, Mateo, Esther, Azi, and Isabella in returning home through the glass cave and escaping Anansi the spider, the three devils, and the moon gazer.
