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!

Podcast #176 – Illuminate the Dogs of War

Argh, Grargh, Oooargh, Bllarrrggh

In this furious episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Quinns, Ava, and Tom are talking about three games that couldn’t be more different. First up we’ve got a chat about Illumination – a game all about scrawling doodles in the margins of MonkBooks, before pivoting hard into playing (?) with (?) dogs in Good Puppers – a set collection game with a sinister backstory. Finally, we’re talking about our not-too-positive experience with Memoir ‘44 Flight Plan, and Quinns asks everyone a difficult question.

PS: I’m really sorry about the stings.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Big Bribes are the Best, Get Jade All The Time, Luckily No Lizard Voice, A Twist Ending

In this sluggish episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Quinns are fresh off the back of two games – one a box of unison and joy; the other a lump of conflict and discontent. We’re talking about Gugong and it’s expansion – Panjun – as well as Lizard Wizard! But which is the belle of the ball, and which is the slob of the swamp? Find out… right here!

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #173 – Bashing Our Brains On Bitoku

Summer All Year Long, Have A Lovely Podcast, StealthCake

In this spiritual episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt and Tom are talking about just one game – a game that has sat alone on Tom’s ‘To-Play’ shelf like a bottle of brown sauce in a wetherspoons sauce caddy. That’s right, it’s Bitoku, a game about splodging sauce all over a beautiful forest until various bears, otters and raccoons come to lick of all the liquid from the branches and leaves: yum yum yum.

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #172 – The Great Unmatched Showdown

Jump Scares, Buffy the Greek Slayer, Raptor High

In this UNMATCHED episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns have decided to pursue the strange little feature that Quinns has been dwelling on for a while – seeking to ask and answer the question: ‘how good is all this Unmatched… really?’.

Through three ferocious bouts of slippery copyright law, our heroes put their heroes to the test in a battle of wits, strategy, and pointing out how ridiculous it is that Bloody Mary just dropkicked Bigfoot.

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #171 – The Great Wall o’ Wise Guys

A very old podcast, Caveman Deals, GoldenWalls, Triple Jump Into Podtown

In this vaguely threatening episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Matt are chatting about a ‘whole buncha guys’! Some of them are on, in, and around a big ‘ol wall in Awaken Realms’ The Great Wall; and others are skulking around the streets of Chicago in Gale Force 9’s Wise Guys! We’re also having a brief chat about all the spoilers that Matt unearthed in The Initiative – so plug up your ears at the end if you want to make sure you remain unspoiled.

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #170 – Environments and How Not To Die In Them

A ‘Rules’ Dispute, Forget About The Turtles, Desert Gems, DADLands

In this arid 170th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast Tom, Ava, and Quinns are chatting about a bunch of games featuring HOSTILE ENVIRONMENTS. It’s like the Shut Up & Sit Down Annual Company Retreat after Quinns threw a War Sun at Ava. We’ll never be the same again.

In this podcast, the gang are saving tigers in Endangered and planting gardens in Ishtar; before settling down to a nice bit of post-apocalyptic bickering in Radlands. Enjoy!

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #168 – The Heavy-sode Layer

VC Funded Thrones, Art Griftin’, Vital School

In this 3,000 pound episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt and Ava are wading into the quagmire of crunchy decisions, cold calculation and brain-burnin’. First, they’re rambling about the plains and pains of The Great Zimbabwe before letting their artistic side loose on The Gallerist. If by ‘artistic side’ you mean ability to manipulate the market value of a wonky sculpture.
