Podcast #167 – Generic Wet Hubris

Grain Faces, HoloMeeple, A Cheque That Swears

In this panoramic episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Matt and Tom are back in action, ready to talk about a little heap of cardboard that’s been growing in the corner over the festive break; it grows a little every time you look away, and we’re hiring someone to take care of it.

On this podcast you can hear about the ever-rolling Dice Realms, the ever-sinking Atlantis Rising (2nd Edition) and the ever-expensive Q.E. A bunch of games that we’re keen on, but not… that keen on. Wahoo!

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #166 – Live From PAX Unplugged! (Part 2)

A Soiled Tailor, Stealing Ducks, Balloon Death, Quantum Cats

In this admirably 166th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, we’re BACK at PAX Unplugged! Even though it was multiple weeks ago, we’ve brought the past into the present through the media of recording – which we, of course, invented. From the heady heights of Himmelsstürmer to the sandy shores of Strand Unter – the twisty time travelling of That Time You Killed Me to the dastardlly Doodle Dash… we’re talking about a lot of games! Ducks In Tow, Biblios: Quill and Parchement and Scape Goat all get to stick their respective oars in, before tying everything up in a trio of trick takers. What a treat!

We’ll be back to the normal podcast schedule very soon!

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Podcast #164 – Rushin’ Retail

cheap electronics, a baby on drugs, dungeon coworkers

In this industrious 164th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt and Quinns are mostly talking about two games where I (Tom, hello) rinsed them; two crusty brains pummelled into the dust by three cups of coffee and an unending desire to ‘prove myself’ in the cardboard battlegrounds of ‘board games’. Huzzah.

On this podcast you can hear words about the hellacious retail disasterpiece of Brick & Mortar, the dice-chucking mayhem of Rush Out! and the nonsensical auctions of Furnace. Three games wallowing in a lot of minutes – minutes stuffed with observations, rammed with remarks and runneth(ing) over with criticismé.
