Nibcard Games are raising funds for their second annual African Board Game Convention

July 15, 2017 - 6:29am

Last year we reported on a unique event that happened in Nigeria, a board game convention, the first of it's kind in the country of Nigeria, maybe even the whole of Africa.  While board gaming is well known here in the states and in Europe, in places like Nigeria they are playing with less than a dozen games and think that is the whole of the board gaming hobby.  So Kenechukwu Ogbuagu, creative director of Nibcard Games, put on a board gaming convention called ABcon.  It's goal was to show everyone the wide world of games and to promote game design to people in his home country and continent.  The convention was a great success as they are now seeking funding on IndieGoGo to be able to put on the convention for a second year.  In the description of the campaign he talks about how he is setting up funding locally to be able to continue the convention well into the future, but this year remains a test year for that funding. So I highly suggest you check out his IndieGoGo campaign and contribute, you can even get tables, game booths, or even game competitions named after you depending on how much you contribute.
