Hamzet Wasl is a series of board-games that aim to familiarise Egyptian youth with different Arabic dialects. A dialect is a very dynamic aspect of any culture. Through learning different dialects, we can learn to dig deeper into the history of a given country, in a fun and dynamic way. The first two editions of Hamzet Wasl included the dialects of Tunisia and Morocco. The reason these two countries were chosen in specific is that there is a huge gap in the Egyptian society of understanding them. And the main reason this gap is profound is that these two dialects are not as familiar as other dialects are within the Egyptian society. Hence, Hamzet Wasl main aim was to gamify learning new dialects, and to bridge the gap between Arab countries, through making them communicate in Arabic language once again.
