ABOUT IAS GAMES
"After losing my job and looking for ways to lift my spirits, I was thinking of a fun way to interact with television shows from the ’80s and ’90s, a dream-filled conversation with friends started about board games that could make you feel like your favorite characters while maintaining connections to African American heritage. With a few laughter-inducing conversations and a lot of research, In All Series-Ness, LLC was born.
In essence, I wanted to play games with characters that looked like me, so I created one."
