SU&SD Play Mothership Episode 2: 11 Secret Herbs and Space

My oh my oh my. We made it episode 2 of Mothership, and it’s only just over one month late! Apologies for the delay on getting this one to YouTube, Tom got a little too into character as ol’ juiceboy – chugging endless amounts of “medicine” instead of doing his job.

In this episode, the gang explore the ship they’ve found themselves on, teeth themselves on green orbs and faff around a lot before reaching a dramatic conclusion. You can find part one here. Enjoy!

Podcast #112 – Spooked in Sea, Spooked in Space

On this week’s episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Matt, Tom & Ava sit around in a board game soup, rambling about a series of games that we’ve been playing in the darkest reaches of lockdown – and even go so far as to talk about some digital card games! The horror.

Join us for a bumbling episode where we talk about everything from the raucous Forgotten Waters to the pensive and tense The Crew, as well as a quick chat about Gloomhaven and its upcoming mini-adventure Jaws of The Lion. We’ll also be talking about all the recent games we’ve been streaming – such as the delectable 1s and 0s of Slay The Spire, and the existential dread of Mothership. Last, but not least, we’ll be giving some positively DANGEROUS thoughts about Wingspan, a game that everyone can agree is QUITE NICE.

Podcast #100: International Trouser Accidents

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.
