Boardgames in Nigeria. Interview with Bassey Onwuanaku

This podcast is made for people like you. Thank you for being there. Welcome to the GMS Podcast episode 424 a podcast about the people who make and the people who play tabletop board games and roleplaying games.

I am Paco García and in this episode I talk with Bassey Onwuanaku about her game café in Abuja, Nigeria, and how finding out about her daughter learning through gaming, has led her to create Lyndem Edutaiment, an organisation that wants to spread education through gaming all over Nigeria.

We talk about the beginnings, her plans, how games are helping children and teachers and the future she would like to have for the organisation, as well as the games she’s designing and would like to see published.
