Huge thanks to Chris and Anni for their herculean efforts behind the desk that day. If you're at all into video games then be sure to check out their amazing video game documentary series, People Make Games.
This video also documents Matt and Quinns playing the new expansion for the terrific Great Western Trail, Rails to the North, for the very first time. To be charitable, it's not what they expect. To be candid, they play the worst game of Great Western Trail of their adult lives.
Also, remember how our review of party game The Champion of the Wild caused it to sell out? For anyone still craving a copy, the game is back on Kickstarter right now, with all sorts of little improvements.
EDIT: ...Little improvements, and some new play variants including the way we play in this very video. Wow!
Enjoy the show, everybody! And huge thanks to our guests for being such good sports, as well as to everybody in the audience for being the real champions.
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.
