Podcast #186 – Kidney Handling Simulator 2022

The Great Racketball-Off, One Sleepy Intern, Tom is a Failure (again)

In this medical episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Quinns are donning their scrubs for a lengthy chat about Rush M.D, punting down the Nile in Sobek: 2 Players, and slipping through space in Wormholes!

Apologies for all the drilling noises in this episode – we couldn’t scrub them from the recording without Quinns sounding like a strange squeaky robot!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Podcast #184 – A Wibbly Wobbly Egg (Live!)

Cheese Dreams, Stationary Egg, Funnoying, Live 'n Wonky

Tom: Live and happening, it’s a podcast! When I edit podcasts, I usually slice out the bits where I sound silly, or ask if it’s ‘time to talk about Rats’ too many times; but in the live format, they have to stay. On this very special episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt and his two adult children are talking about a bunch of games! We’ve got the absolute excess of Wonderlands War, the snakes-and-ladders-worker-placement of First Rat and the secret sneaky bidding of Dreadful Circus alongside plenty of healthy chat about a Wibbly Wobbly Egg from Dodo. Enjoy!

Podcast #182 – The Numbers Go Up Special

Secret Square Rondels, Reflecting Pyramids, An Impossible Pretzel

In this apparently aquatic episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom, Ava, and Matt are talking about some suspiciously dry games! And spinners. And Twister.

First up is Khora: Rise of an Empire – the ultimate spreadsheet experience! Tom then rambles about Boonlake for a moment, before Ava takes us home with Founders of Teotihuacan; the game which we essentially forgot to have a discussion about.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

In this meagre episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Matt are talking about three whole boxes with games inside of them!! First up is MAGIC BINGO, also known as Via Magica – a game of wizards and crystals that your (imaginary) family might enjoy. We then talk about the disastrous urban planning of Next Station: London, before getting thoroughly confused by Cryptid: Urban Legends.

Finally, we take a trip to the forbidden zone to chat about Square Valley – a delightful little mobile game that is… ‘Quite Boardgames’.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Podcast #177 – Asymmetrical Arguing

Place your bets, Nobody Cares, Elon Musk’s Turd Handkerchief

In this electric episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast Tom and Quinns are going toe-to-toe in a battle for the ages, fighting the corner of the game that they like, and the other person… likes too… but less…

On this podcast we’re chatting about our lengthy first impressions of Crescent Moon and our much snappier first impressions of Bear Raid, as well as literally about 20 seconds of talking about the Mind MGMT app – so little, in fact, that I haven’t even timestamped it!

Have a great weekend, everybody!
