Black Card Revoked

THERE ARE NO EASY ANSWERS, BUT PLENTY OF GOOD LAUGHS FROM THE BOARD GAME THAT MAKES BLACK PRIDE FUN FOR EVERYONE.

Black History Month celebrates countless contributions made by our ancestors. Black Card Revoked celebrates more recent developments in black pop culture, in truly hilarious fashion. The brainchild of marketing consultant Latesha Williams (who previously worked for LeBron James), the game is a crash course in daily black life. Its 81 multiple choice questions are described as ‘somewhere between righteous and ratchet’ and will surely ignite reminiscing and raucous debate: What R&B songstress would you want to have your back in a fight?. What is Mike Jones’ telephone number? When Grandma tells you to “rench” it off, what do you need to complete the task? (clue: it’s not a wrench!) And there's a twist - some questions have correct answers, while others let the majority decide who’s right. Urban media has heaped well-deserved praise upon the game, which retails for $20. It can be played by up to six people and is safe for the entire family (yes, you can play with grandma)!
