The foremost Nigerian board game development firm. We develop board games.

Amazing things Toby's made
I designed The first African leadership board game called Protege LEAD game which has directly impacted 10,000 young people and children in the last 2 years. Over 20 Trillion Dollars was estimated to have been stolen away from Nigeria by public office holders as at 2015( Yet 10 million children are out of school, 13.3% are unemployed in Nigeria, it is assumed that about 64% of annual graduate will not get a job because of skill gap, Bad roads is the number three killer in Nigeria after sickness and diseases. All this could be avoided if we have corruption free public officers and leaders. 25 million Nigerians above 15 years old are illiterates.The Protege LEAD game aim to raise leaders with integrity and vision for socioeconomic growth and development in Africa. The Protege LEAD game has a board, a dice, 41 playing cards, and 4 players seed. The Protege LEAD game is a creative tool for all.

It is my pleasure to recommend Tobi Michael Akinnike for the Global Good Fund Fellowship.
I have known Michael for over two years, while serving as a member of the Advisory Board of his NGO - Youth Protégé and I have been consistently impressed with his unrelenting drive to engineer change in the reading culture of young people. He is both very committed and hard working.
I strongly recommend Michael without reservation for the Global Good Fund Fellowship. I am confident that he will devote himself to making the best use of this opportunity with a high degree of diligence.
