A Glaswegian who was always in love with games, Behrooz 'Bez' Shahriari has designed tens of Flash games, published on the internet, and is constantly designing board games. Her first printed game — In a Bind — was released in 2015 and was then picked up by Gigamic and now published in 13+ languages as Yogi.
Wibbell++ (2017) was Bez's 2nd major release: a game system for which games are continuing to be designed and developed.
Kitty Cataclysm (2019) involves card play, chaos, cat puns, and the opportunity to be a dick.
Future self-published games include: +, The Conversation, and A game, wherein you[...].
Bez does art sometimes. Her major weaknesses are anxiety, depression, and organisation.
As well as designing various games to publish herself, Bez has helped in developing the following titles from Alley Cat Games:
Pocket Sub (minor tweaks)
Pocket Pharma (expansion ideas and tweaks)
Welcome to Dino World (visitor cards, aviary/aquatic expansion)
Coral (fish economy, 3D module, card pondering)
Islands (new specialist abilities)
Bez is friends with many other UK designers and helps organise playtests in London as part of Playtest UK.
Other than boardgaming, hobbies include musical performances, Nordic LARP, dancing, comics, cycling, tasting new things and travel.
