Men at Work is the next beautiful box coming out of Pretzel Games, makers of Flick 'Em Up and Junk Art, and we love the heck out of it. And like those previous games, it functions as a lovely object, as well as a silly challenge, and - if you so choose - an arena where actual tactics can be deployed.
If you'd like to watch the full stream, with the beginning, the end and all of the hilarious comments in between, it'll be available here for the next sixty days. And if you'd like to hear about us talk about Men at Work on the podcast, you'll find that sweet ol' chat on episode #88.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
Be sure to tune in on the 6th of December, when we'll be streaming Pretzel Games' excellent Men at Work. But then, that's only a short game, so perhaps you can also expect a surprise or two...
The game we're playing is Street Masters, which has a new expansion (as well as the base game) on Kickstarter RIGHT NOW. If you're in the mood for some dumb, schlocky fun, Street Masters is precisely the kind of smart dumb fun that we can get behind.
If you'd like to watch the video and our gut-busting Twitch commenters at the same time, the stream will be available here for the next couple of months. Oh, and look forward to more co-op combat in a couple of weeks, because on the 22nd of November we'll be streaming Gloomhaven, and Quinns will be doing his best to make a permanent impact on Matt's campaign.
Have a great weekend, everybody.
Huge thanks to everyone who took part, and for Efka of No Pun Included for acting as Twitch's supreme commander. Our live stream will be back in a couple of weeks on the 8th of November, with Matt and Quinns whupping some punks in a game of Street Masters. See some of you there!
"These are the adventures of the Star Ship Canada. It’s continuing mission: For crew-members Paul, Matt and Pip not to embarrass the Federation."
Is the resulting story the worst Star Trek episode ever made? You be the judge.
We did a video review of Letters from Whitechapel, but the superior sequel, Whitehall Mystery, only got a written review. Since it's our favourite hidden movement game, we leapt at the chance to show it off on our new Twitch channel. And what fun we had!
This Thursday was the inaugural stream from Shut Up & Sit Down's fancy new Twitch page, and we've now uploaded it as a normal Let's Play video. Please enjoy Paul, Matt and Quinns racing one another in Flamme Rouge, with a few features from the Peloton expansion.
A load of people said that the Twitch chat during our stream was the nicest chat they've ever seen, so if you'd like to join the party on our next stream, simply click on over to our Twitch page to discover when that'll be.
Anyone who's been following our RPG reviews will know that there's a lot more to these games than D&D, and today we're showing off an absolute belter: The World Wide Wrestling RPG. Contained in this one hour video is a one hour Wrestling TV special, and only one of our contestants can come out on top.
Are you cheering the loudest for Batterin' Berg, Warrbeast, The Bristol Mudler or Car Boy? Or will you just jeer and throw beer cans at ring? Let us know in the comments.
This rather different D&D module is based around the hugely successful comic Rat Queens and was authored by its creator, the ineffable Kurtis Wiebe, so who better to ask to run this remarkable roleplaying event than the man himself? Yes, that's right, Kurtis took the helm while Pip, Cynthia, Quinns and Matt went wild with his characters. Don't worry, no canon interpretations were harmed during the making of this video.
Our huge thanks again to Kurtis for flying in to make this happen, for doing a Q&A after and for being such a terrific convention guest. This is also a personal point of pride for me, as I assembled and organised most of this session, and it was a pleasure to bring some live roleplaying to SHUX. One short word of warning: this is definitely a little more NSFW than many of our other videos. As they say in some parts of the world, viewer discretion is advised.
In this episode our team of a tory, a crank and a lizard descend into their very first dungeon, the very engine room of D&D. What monsters will they fight? What puzzles will they overcome? And what treasure will they find?
It's easy to poke fun at D&D. It's a lot harder to argue with the thrill of beating up a boss and taking his gold. Get 'em, Badger!
