The next time you’re playing the gridded boardgame spewed with snakes and ladders and you hit upon the venomous reptile, just go on and take a swig. Taking age-old boardgames and turning them into boozer-friendly sports is Chandni Shahani and Imran Rizvi’s new enterprise, Wasted Fish. Making sure that your house party lasts forever, the duo of self-confessed “drinking mavens” sobered up and took to the venture distressed by the banal barware currently available.
