3-5 players take on the role of politicians competing in a national election. As they build their political personas, players must answer tough policy questions, manage resources, influence voters, and outmaneuver each other to secure power.
Reviewers have hailed SHASN as “the best thing to come out of American politics in a very long time” (Stephen Gulik, Everything Board Games), “A really clever strategy game entrenched in a surprising political battleground” (Elan Lee, Exploding Kittens) and “irreverent, relevant, and deeply humorous” (Dan Thurot, Space Biff).
SHASN has won the highly prestigious Social Impact Award at IndieCade Europe 2019, widely regarded as the Sundance of the gaming industry. It has always received several other community awards in recognition of its fun, innovative gameplay.
