    Johannesburg - The South African government is supporting a new board game for schools, meant to address a very serious issue.

    Each roll of the dice lands the players on a new question designed to educate young people about domestic violence and sexual abuse. The group with the best answer wins a point.

    It has been developed by the TEARS Foundation, which helps victims of rape. With the support of the South African government, it will soon be available in schools across the country.
