Review: Undaunted: Stalingrad

Dark times await for the board game hobby. Is that because Undaunted: Stalingrad wants to transport us all to the ugliest battle of the ugliest front of one of the ugliest wars in human history?

No, it’s because some of the scenario design made Quinns REAL mad and he’s going to make that ALL of our problem.

It’s time for our Undaunted: Stalingrad review.

This Week On Shut Up & Sit Down…

Tom: Hello! How is everyone doing? In a reversal of fortunes since the last ‘This Week On Shut Up & Sit Down…’ post, I’ve garnered a copy of Frosthaven! This time I greeted the postman fully clothed! Hah! That’ll… show them?

We’ve got two absolutely fabulous weeks of content for you on the site this week to lead into the holidays with two incredibly HOT releases! Both sturdy Shut Up & Sit Down Recommends… what could they be? One is big, and the other is big! Both are games, and they feature boards! Both have cards, and one has dice! Knowing you lot, you will almost certainly guess ’em from those clues alone. Darn.

Podcast-wise, we’ve got Matt and Ava on this episode chatting about Libertalia and Oltree – two games that… well I can’t remember exactly what the thematic cohesion is there, but I’m sure they’ll have worked something out!

That’s all for this week – I’m busy sprinting the last bits of content out before nipping over to PAX Unplugged in… two days?! Oh my. What have you been up to, everybody?

Matt's Birmingham Cabaret, Bohnanza In Italics, A Big Bad List

In this 200th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, the team sit down for a frankly unwieldychat about the top 10 games we collectively reckon you shouldplay.

I’ll let the episode speak for itself here – nearly two hours of absolute nonsense from all four of us. Thank you so much for listening to 200 episodes, here’s to 200 more! x

Have a great weekend, everybody!

This Week On Shut Up & Sit Down…

Tom: Welcome to Monday! How’s it going? I just heard the doorbell of my flat ring and – thinking it was Frosthaven – rushed out of the shower I was in the process of having so I could gallop to the door wearing merely a towel. Turns out it was just a microwave.

This week on Shut Up & Sit Down you can expect both a video review and a bumper 200th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast! The video review, contrary to a previous post, actually contains less gore than advertised, and the podcast will contain none whatsoever. A terrible loss for meatfans everywhere.

Little else to report this week! We’re cooking up two reviews of games we’re really excited about this November, and I’m eager to get right back to writing one of them! What have you been up to, everybody?

THERE IS A BAKER AND HE IS SCARED

In this acrimonious episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, it’s a Tom-And-Quinns-Knee-To-Knee Special! We’re talking about two games whilst incredibly close to each other in a quasi-live podcast experience! On this episode, we’re focusing our wrath on two cities in Rebuilding Seattle, and Fire & Stone: Siege of Vienna 1683. They’re both games, and we’ve played them!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Mozart’s Final Dance Party, Bolf: Sport of Champions, Stupid Sexy Pringles

In this rock and rolling episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Ava and Tom take on a whole bunch of dice games with Gang of Dice, Sequoia, and Roll in One! After we’re done with our potluck of probability, we delve into a dessert with the deceased! That doesn’t quite work, does it. We’re talking about Lacrimosa! Mozart is dead.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

This Week On Shut Up & Sit Down…

Tom: Hello! We’ve got quite a quiet week here on SU&SD! I’ll waste no time and get straight into what you can (and cannot) expect this week.

No video on Thursday this week – I’m taking another week to get this one ready for human eyes! It’s going to be on two games, it’s going to be quite silly, and it will only contain moderate amounts of gore.

On Friday, you can expect a podcast! Ava and I will be talking about a few of the games we’ve been playing recently, in a non-canon podcast episode before our 200th Episode Special! What can you look forward to in that podventure? I’m not entirely sure yet – leave suggestions down below!

What have you been up to, everybody?
