Podcast #100: International Trouser Accidents

Raccoon Art, when gel goes wrong, Suspicious Wizards in your area
October 16, 2019

Congratulations all, you’ve made it! It’s the very 100th Shut Up and Sit Down podcast! Gosh, the podcast hill is so high up here that I’m pretty sure I can see episode 43, fumbling around in that bush with a sandwich.

Matt and Quinns are briefly joined by Pip for an sleep-deprived natter about some interesting games. Obscurio (16:14) sounds like Wizard-Dixit with traitors, and incredibly summoned a cheer from the crowd simply for use of the word “acetate”. Tumblin’ Dice (21:05) got a little love, but probably deserves more than anyone can give it, before Matt then went on to talk about playing the award-winning RPG Mothership (24:50) – a sci-fi horror system that conveys the relatable experience of waking up after a very long time and immediately being attacked by stress.

We were thrilled to find that many of those who’d managed to check it out at SHUX finally understood the hype from our review of Blood on the Clocktower (35:13) – a beautiful beast that is more than the sum of its frankly dastardly parts.

Delving into Vast: the Mysterious Manor (39:58) – an asymmetrical game in which you can literally play as the mysterious manor – left us with mixed feelings about pacing but strong feelings towards skeletons, before we finally talked about food and/or animals with Yum Yum Island (45:36) and Nickelodeon Splat Attack! (50:06).

Apologies for the quality of the audio in this episode – we had some issues with the room that we weren’t able to resolve. If you’d like to listen to this episode with “moving pictures”, you can also watch it here, on Youtube!

Finally, cheers again to our amazing community for creating these podcast transcripts – usually completed within a week of the podcast’s release. 100 episodes is truly “big potatoes” – thank you so much for listening!
