You are STILL the Peoples’ Champion, Defender of the Defenseless; the Afrikan Ant… the Siafu!

By day, you are a not-so-mild-mannered 13 year old 9th Grader – yeah, you’re smart, and cool, too.

But when duty calls, YOU are ready to risk your life to defend the defenseless; ready to stand up for those afraid to, or unable to, stand up for themselves. YOU are a superhero!

YOU choose how the story unfolds.

YOU choose how the story ends.

YOU have 4 Superpower Archetypes to choose from!

YOU have new Mega-Powers to choose from and develop!


There are puzzles to solve, clues to find, Supervillains to bring to justice, HERO points to gain and lose, and citizens to save!

All YOU need to save the world is a pen or pencil, a few sheets of paper, and a regular deck of playing cards.

You’ll also need your wits, your imagination, the help of your 1st cousin, Big ‘Lo, your superpowers, a few cameos from Siafu Saves the World (Black Power: The Superhero Gamebook, Book 1) and maybe even a new superhero or two!


Enjoy Siafu vs. The Horde, the second action-packed, fun-filled volume in the Black Power: The Superhero Gamebook series!
