Jaaved Jaaferi applauds Memesys Studios’ Sequel To SHASN

SHASN, the epic political strategy board game, made headlines when it was released two years
ago. SHASN became a breakout success after launching on Kickstarter, raising over half a million dollars and selling copies around the world. It has been frequently touted as the most successful contemporary Indian board game, the biggest of its kind since Chess. SHASN has
sold over 6000 copies and has player bases in over 60 countries. Now, Jaaved Jaaferi is all praise for the game... check out how!

In SHASN, players take on the role of politicians as they answer tough policy questions, manage resources, influence voters, and outmaneuver each other to secure power. SHASN was designed by Zain Memon, now recognised as the leading authority in game design out of India.

“SHASN managed to introduce a lot of players to the exciting world of modern tabletop games. Our vision is to keep expanding the market by creating fun, engaging games across genres and
ages, and remind the country of its rich tabletop legacy,” quotes Zain Memon.

Memesys Studios, the cutting-edge publisher of SHASN, has now announced its highly-anticipated sequel - SHASN: AZADI!

AZADI takes the political experience of its predecessor one step forward by plunging players
into the shoes of revolutionaries attempting to overthrow a tyrannical Imperial power. The
semi-cooperative board game is an effort to reclaim and rewrite history through the lens of the oppressed. With campaigns spanning across South Asia, USA, Egypt, and Russia, AZADI gives players the opportunity to dive into freedom struggles through the ages.

Joining Zain Memon on the AZADI designer’s table is Abhishek Lamba - a core member of the SHASN team, and an emerging figure in the board game industry. Memesys Studios, run by Anand Gandhi and Zain Memon, has also produced critically acclaimed cinema like Ship of Theseus, An Insignificant Man, and OK Computer (Disney+Hotstar).

“As a studio, we’re always on the lookout for the most important, exciting stories of our times. AZADI is one such story - a reminder of how every inch of our freedom has to be fought for in the face of oppression - a story that needs to be lived first-hand, in a way no other medium can achieve,” shares Anand Gandhi, producer.

SHASN: AZADI is now live on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter:
