This is an interesting tactic, trying to get shelf space in the countries largest retailer has gotta be tough. Out of curiosity I went to the BGMA website to see what they were trying to promote. Not a lot of games, but some were what I expected, specifically black experience games like


which serve to educate as much as entertain.

Then there are some which just have a very narrow niche appeal I think


But the one that I think would appeal most to this crowd is something I've been wondering about for a long time, an RPG drawn from a distinctly non-western source. Not too sure about "Sword and Soul" as a tagline but otherwise this might be very interesting


The description is pretty interesting if only as a source book for your fav rule set. Ki Khanga

Most of the rest are abstract games or card based party games of which I have little interest. They definitely are selling stuff that I think would appeal to their ethnic group (why buy a version of Monopoly over Black Wall Street?) so they have a good point about serving an otherwise not directly targeted group. It would be a good economic case study if they could get some stuff into Walmarts in the South and inner cities to see if there is a demand.

This is a tough time for retailers. Even before the pandemic, they were struggling to compete with online operations like Amazon. They are probably going to play it safe for now, sticking to proven games and game companies.
