Hi Friends!

A Happy New Year to you all!

We’re delighted to announce that our Asian backers will get their games next week. Meanwhile, we will receive the shipment in India by next week, and our Indian backers can expect the game in the week after that. Our backers across the world should get their copies by the end of this month. 

We have also created content to make your gameplay experience more fruitful, including:

- A new How-to-Play video.

- A privilege tracker that will serve as an optional tiebreaker.

- An explainer for all headlines and conspiracies in the game.

We will be sharing the content here and on BoardGameGeek very soon.

I’ll see you in the next update. Hopefully by then you’ve already played a few games of SHASN.

SHASN Manufacturing Is Complete!
about 2 months ago – Tue, Dec 08, 2020 at 07:58:24 PM

Hi friends,

I’m thrilled to share that we are finished with manufacturing and packaging. Thousands of SHASN boxes are now going on the boat!

We also heard the concerns that some of you had about the boxes getting damaged in transit. Unfortunately, the prototype got dented because of the many hands that exchanged it on the way here. We have made sure to carefully secure every copy before dispatching it. 

Everything also fits beautifully inside the box. Take a look!

These are our Shipping Partners around the world:

USA/Canada - D6 Publisher Resources

UK - Spiral Galaxy Games

EU and Rest of Europe - Aimplify

Australia/New Zealand - Aetherworks

Asia - VFI Asia

India - Memesys Culture Lab

Keep an eye out for any communications from our shipping partner in your region. Can’t wait for you to play our game soon!

See you in the next update.

Manufacturing Update
3 months ago – Sun, Nov 08, 2020 at 09:47:02 PM

Hello friends!

Due to a small delay, we will be wrapping up production in ten days from now. The games will be on the boat by the end of the month!

An important heads up: please lock your final shipping address by 30th November if possible. You will not be able to change your shipping country after 30th November.

You can log into your BackerKit account and change your address there, if necessary. If you don’t have an account, go to and sign up as a backer using the same email address that you used on Kickstarter.

If you haven't completed your BackerKit survey yet, please do so immediately here:

If you don't complete your BackerKit survey, we may not be able to fulfil your order. 

Meanwhile, it’s that time of the once-in-four-years again. Just like me, I'm sure you are also glued to the unfolding US election results. It is a pleasure to watch democracy in action, but it is also a crucial time to re-examine our systems and figure out how they can best represent our interests.

See you in the next update.

Updated Delivery Timeline
4 months ago – Fri, Sep 25, 2020 at 08:22:40 PM

Hi friends,

I want to start by apologizing for the radio silence recently. Our manufacturing has already been underway, but we encountered a few problems that threw a bit of a spanner in the works. Some files did not turn out as expected, and we were forced to make some design changes. We held off on this update until those issues were resolved, and we had a clear idea of the delivery timeline.

This is the revised timeline that we are confident of:

Mass manufacturing will be completed by the end of October. The game will then ship from China and will reach various ports around the world by the end of November. The deliveries of SHASN will begin in December. You can expect to have the game delivered to you before the year is over!

An important note for our Indian backers: fulfilment in India has gotten more complicated due to the current international relations situation. We’re talking with our shipping partners to ensure that SHASN clears customs as soon as it arrives. We’ll have more information for you as the political situation unfolds further.

I understand that this delay is inordinate and am really sorry. We’ll make sure to keep you looped in better, regarding all progress and difficulties, until the game reaches your hands. I promise you that at the end of the day, an excellent product is going to reach you.

Thank you so much for bearing with us.

Pictures, Please

Hi friends,

We know you’ve been eagerly waiting for the pictures of our production prototype. We were holding out until we were able to complete a high-quality studio photoshoot. The images are out and they do a splendid job of capturing the game’s beauty.

I’m really proud of what our visual design team - Soumik, Alisha, and Maithili, have managed to achieve. They’ve spent a lot of time marrying visual clarity with razor sharp design, and the result is a game that looks great onscreen and even better in person.

We hope you love the look of the final product as much as we do. Please take a look here:

Also, please note that production is already underway. We will keep updating you on our progress. See you in the next update!
