About This Product
educational Black History game that brings families together for an exciting time of
facts and fun! BLACKBOARD entertains to educate. Learning to play BLACKBOARD
is playing to learn. Playing to learn makes learning a pleasure!
Playing The Game: You begin with a chain that has 7 removable links. You Roll the dice,
move your game piece (Amistad slave ship) around the board, and follow the instructions
for each space. When you land on a question space, you must answer the question for that
category. Each time you answer a question correctly, you'll discard one link. If you
answer incorrectly, you'll collect a link. The first player to run out of links, wins the
game - Knowledge is Freedom! However, knowledge alone isn't enough to become a BLACKBOARD
winner. BLACKBOARD takes you through the high-roads and perils of the past and present
experience of a Black American. You might ESCAPE from slavery and be CAPTURED, or you
could make it to the UNDERGROUND RAILROAD and on to FREEDOM. But, Beware! REAGANOMICS will
send you back, and there's always a TOM waiting to betray you. Also, watch where you walk
or drive! Walking While Black or Driving While Black could get you PROFILED by the police.
Worst of all, MURPHY and his "Law" is right on your heels. But don't worry!
There's a good chance you'll find a REAL BROTHER or REAL SISTER to lend a helping hand.
Many BLACKBOARD players win their first game with little or no prior knowledge of Black
History. BLACKBOARD is designed not to intimidate, but to make education "fun!"
The highly informative question cards contain data that is not widely known. BLACKBOARD is
guaranteed to provide a greater understanding of Black American History, and give you one
of the most exciting times you have ever spent on a game board.

liberation dice (red, black & green), chains, entertaining situation cards, easy to
understand game rules, and multiple choice question cards covering over 9 subjects:

more! Over 420 questions! Ages 7 to Adult.
