You guys will have seen my collection in the background of loads of SU&SD videos, but I don't think you've seen the work that goes into it. Come with me today as I perform... a CULL.
All the games that follow are good games. We don't want you think we've lost our love for them because they weren't featured last week. These are our Honourable Mentions.
Does your brother want to play Twilight Imperium for eight hours? Does your dad understand how the Ambush card works in Memoir ‘44? Will your mum flip the table again if she loses another game of Space Hulk?
Here, then, are Shut Up & Sit Down’s recommendations for games your family can play at Christmas. These are all games with rules you can learn in just a few minutes, and won’t keep you returning to the manual. Some are simple, some are smart, some are physical and some are outright dangerous. But they’re all terribly, terribly good fun.
It's a short video about board gaming that's not for you, but any friends, family or colleagues who don't yet know about your hobby. A glimmering, electric antidote, if you will, for anyone who hears "Board games" and thinks "Monopoly". There aren't any swears at all, and only a smidge of dressing up, so please:
Share away. Let's tell the world about this glorious hobby of ours.
Happy anniversary, everybody. We love you.
