Podcast #233 – The SPIEL Special!

On this jam-packed episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Quinns are going through all the games that Tom brought back from Essen! This doesn’t include the whole host of eurogames he played whilst there, which might even be a separate podcast all by itself! Goodness! We also have time for a very sneaky mention of Crystallo’s latest expansions, and a fair portion of semi-irrelevant chat. Just what the doctor ordered!

Thanks for bearing with us during that brief podcast pause – we’ll be back to the regular schedule from now on!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

If you caught the first instalment of our Solo Special, you’ll remember we didn’t always find 1 player games easy to recommend. But since then, Quinns has disappeared into the wild thicket that is absolutely free print’n’play solitaire games, and we’re not sure he’s coming out.

To get stuck in yourself, we recommend browsing the winners of BGG’s yearly print’n’play solitaire contest: 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013.

Godspeed, folks! And do let us know what you find.
