This summer the site turned TEN YEARS OLD! If it was a child it would have no legal rights to speak of, but it would be, erm, tall? It might be tall. Today we’re launching our ten year anniversary donation drive and teasing a brand-new feature that we’re hoping to launch. What do you say, everybody? How does another ten years sound?Read More
It’s that time of year again, folks! This year has obviously been a shocker for so many, but we’re continually thankful and incredibly privileged to be given the support to do what we do. Here’s a bit of silly fluff with a sprinkling of details about what we’ve got planned for 2021. If you can comfortably afford to support our team we really, really appreciate it!Read More
This might come as a surprise due to the time-warping effects of Covid-19, but it’s that time of year again! Today, we’d like to give you a quick behind-the-scenes message from Shut Up & Sit Down.
If you’re new to this community, you might not yet know that Shut Up & Sit Down is kept alive by donations from people who love what we do. So if you think you can afford it, please consider giving us a dollar or two this summer.
That’s all! We promise to only bother you about this in another six months. Have a great weekend, everybody.Read More
Quinns: And with that donation video, Shut Up & Sit Down is closing its doors for the winter break. We’d like to offer a gigantic, Christmassy “Thank you!” to everyone who watched, supported and shared our content in 2019. But since we can’t do that, we’re going to settle down with our families to eat 9999 brussel sprouts.
I’ll just add that we’re going to be talking a lot about the future of SU&SD in the coming donor newsletter. So if you want to hear about the SU&SD internship program, the future of our board game streaming, the (ridiculous!) pile of games that we plan to shine a light on in the new year and a lot more besides, make a donation of any amount before Christmas day and we’ll slingshot that over-stuffed newsletter into your inbox.
What I will say publicly is that while it’s been a while since we’ve released a podcast, we’re be back to our regular schedule of “About two podcasts a month maybe?” as soon as the new year begins.
We wish you all the best, everybody. See you soon!Read More
Quinns: Hello, everybody. It’s that time again!
Twice a year, our team here at Shut Up & Sit Down requests donations for all of the heartfelt stuff that we’ve made over the last six months. You can donate using this very link.
We don’t like to bother our audience about it, but the fact is, Shut Up & Sit Down runs almost entirely on donations. It sounds improbable, but it does work. If you’ve not gotten involved yet, and you can afford it, perhaps this could be the Summer that you make a pledge?
If you’ve supported us at some point over the last eight years(!), I can’t tell you what a difference it’s made to us. This is the best job that any of us have ever made, and we hope that we’ve shown our dedication to paying it forward.
Have a great weekend, everybody. And thank you.Read More
Quinns: Hi everybody! It’s that time again. If you’ve enjoyed the work we’ve done this year, or if we’ve just helped to point you towards some great games, please consider donating to Shut Up & Sit Down.
And this month, we’ve got a little bonus for you! If you enjoyed the little trip down memory lane in this video, the unedited 30 minute video of us commentating on early Shut Up & Sit Down will be in this month’s donor newsletter. And however much you choose to donate to us, you’ll get your cute self on the mailing list.
Thank you, everybody. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to spend the year working for you. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and pick up some festive snacks for our special, extra-long Christmas stream that we’ll be doing tomorrow! So far we’re planning on playing (a) Keyforge, and (b) a jigsaw puzzle, because why the hell not?Read More
Quinns: Hey everyone! We only like to remind people of this twice a year, but did you know that Shut Up & Sit Down is run mostly by donations from people like you?
If you’ve enjoyed the Monday news or our podcast, if you’ve got some use out of our ad-free reviews or bought a great game thanks to us, we’d like you to consider paying for the service we offer. Your money will go straight to our wages and expenses, and you’ll be helping us to help grow board gaming. ALSO, all donors receive our monthly behind-the-scenes newsletter, lettting you know what we’re working on, what games we’re excited about and what books and TV we’re enjoying.
ALSO, if you have Amazon Prime, you can now give us free money by creating a Twitch Prime account (free with Amazon Prime) and clicking subscribe on our new Twitch page. It’s only for one month, it doesn’t automatically roll month-to-month, but you can do it again for free every month if you’d like!
Thanks so much for your support, everybody. Giving you guys and girls content that you love continues to be the best job in the world.Read More
Update: If you donated after the 21st deadline drop us a note and we’ll hook you up anyway (it’s Christmas after all)!
Quinns: Hi everyone! I’ve come down with a festive Christmas flu, but I found a block in my busy schedule of sneezing and fingering spicy soup between my lips to post about our 2017 pledge drive, which ends this Thursday. Donating any time between now and then will get you access to a profoundly jolly Christmas newsletter, packed full of the following:
- Have your say on our plans for 2018!
- Early thoughts on our next reviews!
- An outtake reel!
- Access to all previous newsletters, totalling 20,000 words!
- A warm fuzzy feeling that next year’s content is paid for by you!
- And more!!
The last day for donations is the 21st of December, and the newsletter itself will go out on the 22nd.
Please donate! This weekend I played my first game of Dropzone Commander and now in addition to everything mentioned in our pledge drive video I also need a United Colonial Marines AC2 “Phoenix” class Heavy Command Gunship.
Thanks for your time, everybody!Read More
Quinns: Oh my goodness! With just Matt’s Gloomhaven review and a year-end podcast to go, that’s almost it for us this year.
“But wait!” you cry. “I haven’t had nearly enough Shut Up & Sit Down!”
Then please, consider thanking us for the service we’ve been providing for more than six years with a donation. Anyone who signs up to donate in a given month will enter the prestigious SU&SD Gold Club, and members receive a monthly behind-the-scenes newsletter, discounts on merchandise and early access to ticket sales for SHUX, the SU&SD convention.
Paul: This December’s newsletter goes out in a week’s time and it’ll be a holiday special, containing our plans for 2018, a blooper reel and access to ALL previous newsletters!
Thanks, everybody. We’ve had a great time putting together a year’s worth of board game coverage for you guys. Who fancies another year?
Merry Christmas from Team SU&SD.Read More
Hello everybody! It’s been 17 videos, 14 podcasts and 55 articles since we asked our audience for donations in (who could forget?) our Christmas advert.
Today, we’re once again asking you to give as much or as little as you can afford. Please, click here (or if you’d prefer, click the seductive, golden button in the upper-right) to join the thousands of people who’ve donated to SU&SD in the past, paying us to keep working, and to keep finding great games.
The above video says it all, but two things bear repeating. First off, we’re putting up two videos in the next two weeks to make up for starting the pledge drive today. And second, we really are confident that the next six months will be the greatest in the site’s history. There is so much cool stuff coming up.
We hope you’re having a great summer, and thanks for sticking with us for just over six years of Shut Up & Sit Down.
Who wants another six?Read More
