The Flipside of a Board Game 

Katja Uusihakala, Helinä Rautavaara Museum, 2007

Take a look at Africa beyond the popular board game Afrikan Tähti (The Star of Africa). This publication follows the routes most Finns will know from playing Afrikan Tähti and tells of meetings between Europeans and Africans as well as about the centuries of history shared by the two continents.

This booklet received an Honorary Mention in a 2008 competition of museum publications. The publication is aimed at school-aged children and was realised with information funding from the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
