Jade Shards is a role-playing experience for one or more players, played with a deck of cards, a tumbling block tower, and a way to record the game, such as a smartphone or a journal.
You are one of the student protesters in the university. You protest for freedom, justice, and a better future. Before you knew it, the police has the campus surrounded, and there is no way out.
Jade Shards is an experience inspired by the Siege of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2019. It was a humanitarian crisis in which the Hong Kong Police Force lay siege to the university, trapping protesters inside for a fortnight. The protesters consist mostly of students from universities and secondary schools, with many of them in their teens. They had their supplies and escape routes cut off, and were under constant assault by the police. Over a thousand protesters were arrested, and hundreds were injured, overwhelming the hospitals.
This experience is about the desperate struggle, and the human capacity to never give up hope.
