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!

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!

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.

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!

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

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

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.
