Podcast #138 – Live from AwSHUX 2021!

A Million Boxes, An Architectural Disaster, Stabbing Your Pals, Time 2 Snooze

Live and scary from AwSHUX 2021, it’s Quinns, Tom and Ava! Apologies for the incredibly unhinged energy on this one, it was powered by nerves and I’m also editing it at 1 in the morning! What a combination!

We’ve got an absolutely brutal lineup of games on this one, folks. We’re talking plants, gardens and sheds in Three Sisters, we’re slapping down a bunch of little wooden towers in Medina, and we’re serving up hot hot murder on our pals in Night of the Ninja.

BUT WAIT! There’s more! At the tail-end of this pod, embark on an odyssey of AwSHUX previews! Tom and Quinns will battle it out in an arena of hyperbole – armed with 26 separate previews that they’ve ruthlessly whittled into the silliest segment around!

Podcast #137 – Nidavelladia!

The International PodZone, Dwerg it Baby, Polite Elks, Quintin Smith: Date Rememberer

In this indubitably 137th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns are producing decibels about two games that they are both a bit excited about! First off we’ll ramble about Nidavellir’s moody dwarves and chunky coins before taking a break in the wilderness of Cascadia; a land of solitary bears and salmon on the slalom.

We then finish this pod off with some very brief thoughts on recent video reviews for Cubitos and Stardew Valley: The Board Game – so if you need thoughts on rolling, growing, moving, and crowing… then you’ve come to the right place on your Friday evening! What luck!

Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

Podcast #136 – Beef StrogAnnov

Salt and Vinegar investors, The right sort of wolverines, Please no Top Gear

In this imperceptibly 136th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Ava, Tom and Quinns chat about two chunky pieces of cardboard chicanery about people in history going places and taking what they find. Anno 1800 and Stroganov are up for discussion and traveling in opposite directions in more ways than one.

Froglins, Dr Liz, The Milton Keynes of Planetary Objects, Thinkin’ and Walkin’

In this whimsically 135th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns chat about a number of single-player pen-and-paper map-drawing/journal-making role-playing games – or ‘Solo RPGs’, for short. We’ll be digging deep into Delve, thinking back to Field Guide To Memory, and shooting upwards to be Alone Among The Stars, each game a new designer and a new direction.

Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

Podcast #133 – Saint Carrara The Grande

Probably not the KLF, Another fine segue, It’s Spanish for ‘The Grande’

In this old-fashioned 133rd episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast Tom and Ava have been left on their own, and are abusing the privilege with a personal campaign to get some wonderful, fusty old European games reprinted. Come join us on a journey across a continent! We’ll be making friends with weird faces in Saint Petersburg, stealing some surprisingly colourful bricks from The Palaces of Carrara and getting grandiose in Spain with El Grande.

It’s weird for us to cover so many out of print games, but don’t worry, these are all currently available to play online through BoardGameArena or Yucata – so put your feet up for the no longer a very mystery tour, because I just told you all where we’re going, oops!

Have a lovely weekend, everybody!
