Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #122 – Marry My Migrating Metro

On this week’s BUMPER BOX podcast we’ve got SIX entire GameBoards for you to picture in your head as we loosely describe them with words and, quite frankly, a lot of noises? This podcast is really great if you’re a young child and want to hear a bunch of cool new ways you can make sounds with your mouth.

What games are we going to create frequencies about this time, I hear you ask? We’ll be chatting about the unusual themes of Zestrea, the beautiful butterflies of Mariposas, the wonders of the internet in Sumatra, and sheer, unadulterated organisation in Maglev Metro. Then, to round it all out, we have a ramble about Fleet: The Dice Game and Troyes Dice – two games with the same core that couldn’t be more different. That makes it sound like a mid 90s comedy that stars Danny DeVito and Dwayne Johnson. Does that exist? It might already exist.

Have a lovely weekend, everybody

Podcast #121: The Stingless Spectacular

Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #121 – The Stingless Spectacular

It’s podcast time, and you’re all invited! Does our generosity know no bounds? In this ghoulishly 121st episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Quinns, Ava and Tom once again settle into the lavishly upholstered podchairs to scream words about boardgames into a wall.

NEW YORK ZOO (04:02)! MARIA (19:38)! LITTLE TOWN (40:06)! THE KING IS DEAD (55:41)! These are all words bellowed in an order that one would assume makes them titles for games – and we will run with that assumption to save everyone the embarrassment. We promise they are real and we didn’t just madlibs this podcast’s games into existence. We’re not on that level just yet.

Have a lovely weekend, everybody. Thanks to our amazing community, podcast transcripts are available here, and are usually completed within a week of the podcast’s release.

Podcast #120: James Bond’s Sexy Racist Kneecap…. LIVE!

Daniel Wideman’s Infinite Bondiverse, Queen of Mean Spiders, Mud Modelling, A Big Bin Full of Flamingo Steaks

In this politely 120th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast Tom, Quinns and Ava grab themselves three microphones, one twitch chat, and a whole month of preparation to best beam podrays into your brain… LIVE!

Broadcast live and silly from AwSHUX 2020, this episode sees Ava and Tom delve into Mottainai and A Game of Thrones: The Board Game – the two very different boxes chosen for their respective application videos. Betwixt these two discussions we ramble about the infinite flowcharts of Combat Commander and Dominant Species, before settling on lighter fare with Legendary: A James Bond Deck Building Game – a box that asks the question: ‘what if bond(s)’? We then wrap up with brief, punchy chats about putting your friends into a bind in Oriflamme, and putting your kangaroos into buns in New York Zoo

Have a lovely weekend, everybody.

Podcast #119: The Big Reiner Beefcast

beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeef
Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #119 – The Big Reiner Beefcast

In this venomously 119th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast Ava, Quinns and Tom gather around the podfire to burn every game they own in a ritual that can be traced hundreds of years into the past. It’s to keep it at bay.

This week we politely disagree about Village Green (01:51), tut about Glasgow (10:43), and aggressively grumble about Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Crypt Hunters (23:05). Then, the gloves come fully off for an all out argie-bargie over a load of Kniz’ – Through the Desert and Blue Lagoon (31:20)! Tigris & Euphrates and Yellow and Yangtze (48:42)! They’re all here, and they’re all loudly shouting each other and I want to go home now please, Quinns did a swear.

Podcast #118: Stuck Holding Double Badgers

Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #118: Stuck Holding Double Badgers

Hark! Tom, Matt and Quinns have eaten the sacred pod-beans and soon opinions will grow from their open mouths. Please remain calm, the procedure is perfectly natural.

Specifically, these potent, home-grown opinions will relate to the board games of Renature (01:41), Pictures (17:33), The Search for Planet X (34:12) and Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy (49:50). There’s also some organic chat about Ride the Rails, Paranormal Detectives and Decrypto.

Podcast #117: Live from the UKGE!

Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #117 – Live from the UKGE!

In this preposterously 117th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast Quinns, Ava and Tom are going absolutely LIVE to the UK Games Expo, threatening to snarf endless pizza in Fort, crunch the numbers in 18Chesapeake, and do ‘Good Japanese Business’ in Yokohama. Then, in a secret less-than-live twist, they’ll yoko-yammer-on-about 5D Chess With Multiverse Time Travel for far too long.

Apologies for some occasionally crunchy audio at times on this one, and have a great weekend, everybody!

Podcast #116: …Reset to Hokey Pokey

The HotCast, I am become Lonely; Haver of Sad, Flicking Foxes Made of Numbers, Return to Africa, The Warm War
Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #116 – …Reset to Hokey Pokey

Three sentient puddles have gathered to sit in rooms made of hot to talk about board games made of card. That’s right, it’s become quite warm all of a sudden and the company has been liquidated to cope, but not in that way, in the other way. Look at what you made us do.

In this hideously 116th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Matt, Ava and Tom return to Undaunted: North Africa, Struggle Imperially with Imperial Struggle, and wait patiently for the moon to hit their collective eyes like the big pizza pie that is Sonora (?!?), before finally having a rambly chat about Far Away.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Podcast #115: Score the Boogie Bonus

Shut Up & Sit Down · Podcast #115 – Score The Boogie Bonus

Picture it now; you’re sitting in a lovely english garden in the midst of summertime. You’ve got a delicious cup of iced Bovril in your hand, and the sun is warming the grass under your feet. Life is bliss. Suddenly, a tall sweaty man and a short sweaty boy leap the fence – cracking open warm cans in mid-air – fistfuls of board game bits clutched in their four greasy hands. It’s time to podcast, baby.

In this undeniably very 115th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns resume the age-old tradition of shirtless podcasting – kicking off with a chat about The Deadlies, before pinging over to Super Skill Pinball: 4Cade. Then, Quinns gets wistful about his foray into Fields of Arle, and we end on a highly controversial chat about Undaunted: North Africa. Strap in.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Podcast #114: The Ocean Grasps a Van

the domain of vans, the superior bake-off, nuclear fission, and a crying cat

It’s a full house, baby! In this episode of the podcast Ava and Quinns discuss FIVE games, each and every one of which they are IMPRESSED BY. Has that ever happened on the podcast before? We’re not going back to check. That could take *minutes*.

Quinns can offer some early impressions of Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 (04:15), Ava’s been dueling a stranger in Innovation (19:36) (and you can read Ava’s splendid roundup of Chudyk’s games here), there’s a lovely drawing game called Geometric Art (34:12), a revisit of Spirit Island (41:12) and we close the show with some impressions of the hot new card game Spicy (57:35).

Podcast #113: The Double-Monster Solo-Roleplay Small-Box TeamBuilder 8000

Small-And-Dense-Haven, Kenneth’s Bistro Bed & Breakfast, The Shirt Off and Sit Down Podcast, DisserSPACEions (eugh)
Shut Up & Sit Down · 113: The Double-Monster Solo-Roleplay Small-Box TeamBuilder 8000

In this positively 113th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns have a totally normal conversation between two dudes in their houses with NEARLY all of their clothes on their respective bodies.

Contained therein are discussions of everything from Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion to Team3, as well as a double-bill of SPOOKY MONSTER GAMES in Hako Onna and Anomaly. We also take a little amble through solo-RPG land, returning to the wonderful (horrible) world of Thousand Year Old Vampire, and a discussion about Artefact – a game where you can finally be what you’ve always dreamed; a clarinet.

This one was a pleasure to record – forgive the rather long running time on this one, we were just having too much fun.

Have a great weekend, everybody!
