Great information here.
I am a Nigerian Boardgame design. And I just organized the first boardgaming convention in Nigeria which was published in Nigerian's daily newspaper offline and online.
I am really passionate about growing the industry here in West Africa and hope to get one of my 13 games published someday (looking for a publisher).
I try to use an underlining African theme in all my game and people here love to play them especially as they relate to things they are playing.

Hope to get a publisher soon.
