About

We need your assistance in getting this game manufactured.

The goals of this game are to promote our wonderful schools to college-bound youth, give alumni a fun way to reminisce and reflect on the "good ole days" of college, and show all that HBCU's are an excellent place to get a quality education. By playing the game, one will learn information about notable alumni,little known historical events, sports news, and fun facts!

In addition to the traditional board game, we are also in the developing stages of an online version so that you can enjoy the game on your computer, smartphone, ipad or other electronic device.

Each board game contains 300  multiple choice and true/false questions about HBCUs and associated alumni!

For example...

Which HBCU graduates more black engineers than any other university? 

What is the nation's oldest black athletic conference?  

Which HBCU is the only campus designated as National Historical Landmark?

We also plan to use the game to help HBCUs, alumni associations, and chapters with fundraising events.

There is so much history associated with HBCUs.  Not only is it a fun game but one commenter said that it was an excellent teaching tool. 

See what others are saying about our project!

Places we have shown the game...

- The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (national conference)

- The White House Initiative on HBCUs (national conference)

- HBCU College Fairs

-  numerous other events on HBCU campuses

Please watch the video and if you have any questions contact us on our website (www.hbcutriviagame.net), by telephone or email.

Clarence and I Thank You for your support!!

Risks and challenges

We already have a working prototype of the game. The only (possible) risk that we foresee will be a delay in manufacturing.
