The best games set on the continent of Africa 🌍 2022

Looking for a really good game set on the continent of Africa🌍? Then we have just the thing for you: the list with the best Africa games 2022.

What are Africa Games🌍?

In this Africa Games List you will find games, expansions, promos, etc. where the African continent (not just a country) is represented thematically or playfully.

There are many games that deal with Africa or are set in Africa - but are difficult or impossible to assign to a specific country, so "country" families do not help to collect these games.

So this game category only contains games that deal specifically with the continent of Africa - i.e. no games that have a world map.

For more info, see Wikipedia entry for Africa.

Examples of games set on the continent of Africa:

A good example of an Africa (continents) game is 10 Days in Africa.
