5 reasons why the 1851 Agidingbi app is an ambiance
Nigerian app creator, cultural activist and archivist, Oludamola Adebowale adds to the existing list of educational apps that break down barriers created by age, religion and ethnicity with the 1851 Agidingbi app. Here are five reasons why this new 1851 Agidingbi app is so vibrant:
(1) History of Lasgidi: Lagos affectionately known as “Lasgidi” is a place of history. Many people have lived and worked in the city for many years, but do not know the history of Lagos. The truth is, many people prefer to learn history outside of the history books. With a wider audience for tech, this Agidingbi from 1851 should be the real deal for learning more about pre-colonial Lagos.
(2) Mobility: Unlike the board version of the game Agidingbi 1851, the app is convenient and easy to carry. You can spend your waiting time on it without wasting your time.
(3) Culture-on-the-Go: Many people can share this cultural experience from different parts of the world. With travel limitations during the pandemic, the 1851 Agidingbi app takes the user on a historical-cultural journey around the history of Lagos.
(4) Game for all: The game is intended for people of a wide age range: children, parents and grandparents. It is a recreation that does not need any parental supervision.
(5) A Chess Toast: The 1851 game app is designed after the traditional chessboard with the six characteristic pieces named after the main players in the history of the British invasion of Lagos. They are: Erelu Kuti of Lagos as Queen Mother, Oba of Lagos as King, Adamu Eyo as Rook, Omo Ogun Eko as Pawn, Eletu Odibo as Madman and Abagbon as Knight.
The Agidingbi of 1851 is the first variation of the chess set on the theme of Nigerian history. It combines the power of history and technology. The game is available in APP format and board game format.
