By Paul Dean on Dec. 19, 2014

We sent Paul off to Firaxicon and then to BGG Con, to conduct insightful interviews with games designers and to test the water in these foreign lands. He was fine. He's fine. It's okay. He came back with lots of info about the upcoming XCOM board game, Kanban: Automotive Revolution and Geek Chic's fine tables.

Admittedly we haven't seen him since he uploaded this video. We're also analysing this video frame-by-frame to figure out who that slender figure is we keep seeing in the background. But we're positive that he's fine, and also if you've seen his body then please let us know!

By Quintin Smith on Dec. 18, 2014

Quinns: I want to play Doomtown: Reloaded a little more before I'm ready for our official review, but I also want to write about it before SU&SD wraps up for the year. Greedy boy that I am, I intend to have my cowboy cake and eat it by writin’ up some impressions.

Silas: Yeeee-hawww! Let’s get to it.

Quinns: ...Who are you?

Silas: Ah’m Silas McCoy, a fictional character invented by that dirty Brendan fella fer his Colt Express review. Yeeee-hawww!

Quinns: Yeah, I don’t think so.

Quinns: Morning everybody! Our cover photo today is of L'Auberge Rouge ("the Red Inn"), a gorgeous-looking game coming next year from venerable Belgian publisher Pearl Games. It looks like you'll all be running incredibly creepy pubs.

Brendan: oh god what day is it

Quinns: Oh my GOODNESS GRAVY, this week we're giving you something you've been asking for for 3 and a half years. A list of Shut Up & Sit Down's top 25 games of all time, ordered from our least most favourite to most most favourite, and all just time for Christmas.

An awful lot of thought, time and love went into this list, so we very much hope you enjoy it. We'll be posting one instalment a day, right the way through to the end of the week. A bit like an advent calendar, except too short and every day it's just us again. You're probably best off taking it back to the shop.

Without further ado, let's KICK THIS BABY OFF A NOTCH.
