Our first tabletop game, SHASN – The Political Strategy Board Game, has ushered in a new era of gaming in the Indian subcontinent. It raised over 500,000 USD in pre-sales alone, on Kickstarter and BackerKit.

With dedicated communities in more than 60 countries and 2000 cities, SHASN has become India’s first global tabletop export since Chess. It is also the largest ever crowdfunding campaign in Indian history.

SHASN received the highly-prestigious Social Impact Award at IndieCade 2019, a leading convention known as the “the video game industry’s Sundance.”

SHASN has not only created political dialogue in hundreds of gaming communities around the world and online, it has also encouraged many players to actively participate in the democractic process.

As a part of our launch campaign, our players wrote letters to their national leaders demanding policy change, reached out to world leaders on social media, and even committed to vote in local elections.

Educators are now using SHASN as a model of games for learning. SHASN’s next expansion also studies historical struggles for freedom and independence.

“The best thing to come out of American politics in a very long time.”

“The best thing to come out of American politics in a very long time.”

“Irreverent and relevant, and at times both deeply humorous and strangely unsettling”
