Inspired by the classic children’s board game “Guess Who?”, “Roma Heroes”, developed in the framework of the “Re-thinking Roma Resistance” project, is an educational game that allows the players to discover stories of real Heroes of the Roma history while playing. “Roma Heroes” includes custom-made illustrations by Roma artists Emanuel Barica. In this game, what is relevant is not the Hero’s physical appearance but his biography! To guess the character your opponent has, you will need to ask questions about the type of resistance, places of resistance and the historical period. It is available as a board game to play at home as well as a videogame!
