SU&SD's Top 50 Games Ever, 2015! #50 to #41
Quinns: RETRIEVE YOUR OFFICIAL SU&SD-BRANDED MOIST TOWELETTES! It's about to get hot in here.

Last year we presented something never-before-seen in board games. Our Top 25 Board Games, Ever was a list of our most favourite games ordered from least-most favourite to most-most favourite. Ever since then, the SU&SD Supercomputer has been calculating a method by which we could possibly top this. Last week, it provided a schematic for something... incredible.

The science behind the following Top 50 is complicated, but in layman's terms we'll be "publishing" "instalments" every day this week, and beyond(!).

Enjoy, everybody.

Quinns: The crowds here are absolutely wild for the board game news we have! I can barely hear myself over the noise! This response is unprecedented!

The Wet Retirement Special

Quinns is planning for his future this week, and for some reason two very wet games are involved. The dastardly Black Fleet, together with venerable 1982 release Survive: Escape From Atlantis. Who knew such an old game was still treading water!

Rumours that we develop our specials using a random word generator have been MODERATELY EXAGGERATED. Drunken bets are also involved.

SU&SD's Best Games For Your Family
Paul: Like a snowman at the door, having a wank through your letterbox, Christmas is coming fast. Everyone and their dog is going to be asking for board games and hoping to unwrap something special but, but not everything that you ask for is going to be suited to families.

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.

Quinns: Cripes! Have you seen the news?! The government's using the internet to spy on our most secret Facemails and Googlings. Don't worry, though. SU&SD's weekly games news is only ever good news, covering the hottest new inanimate objects that will never violate your trust.

They might violate everything else, mind you. Cthulhu Wars is a new Kickstarter that's shattered its funding goal faster than any other board game I've ever seen. "The marketplace today has many boardgames featuring the Cthulhu Mythos," the page starts. "In these games you strive to avert the impending catastrophe. But in Cthulhu Wars you ARE the catastrophe!"

CRIPES!
