Your African Quest was inspired by the need to share some of Africa’s fascinating history and diversity, that has often been overlooked, misunderstood, and misrepresented. It is critical to challenge stereotypes but most importantly to learn to celebrate differences.

This game was created as a way to continue raising support for the work Joel and Anson have been doing in Uganda through the distribution of the 5 STA-Z games. Every dollar raised through the sales of Your African Quest will go towards making learning more accessible to school-going children in refugee camps across Uganda. 

We strongly believe that a fun and dynamic game such as Your African Quest can bring people together to foster social connections, expand one’s knowledge, and expand social causes.


Joel and Anson, friends and boardgame enthusiasts who met in the summer of 2018 when they were taking summer classes together at University of Wisconsin-Madison. At that time they are both undergraduate students in the Civil Engineering department at UW. 

Driven by curiosity, they partnered to create the 5 STA-Z, an educational boardgame that breaks down the Ugandan primary education curriculum to make learning fun and accessible to refugee children in Uganda.
