Podcast #52: A Deception, a Dove and a Dungeon

Get your pod-plates ready! We’re serving up another steaming hot pot of chat. Matt, Paul and Quinns discuss deck-building burgle box that is Clank!, they return once again to the irritatingly more-ish Black Stories, Quinns chats a bit about Deception: Murder in Hong Kong and they discuss the standalone expansion for Welcome to the Dungeon. We hope you left room for seconds, because there’s also a reader mail that asks what games Matt and Quinns organised at their respective weddings last year, and we unseal the Pandora’s Box of folk games played by school teachers. Maybe don’t eat that last bit, it’s profoundly poisonous.

Feature: A Day in the Life of Quinns’ Game Collection!

Quinns: Ladies and gentlemen, roll up! It’s time for a new series where we take a look a team SU&SD’s board game collections. Come and see! Be amazed. Be aghast. Be envious. Comment with thought-provoking assertions like “why do you have that game it is bad”.

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.

Quinns: Paul, ask me some questions entirely at random!

Paul: Oh God what now.

Welcome to the Dungeon

Quinns: We open this week with Six Games to Introduce Your Kid to Roleplaying, an article published over the weekend by Shut Up & Sit Down’s own Matt Thrower. Some would say teaching your child that they’re an imaginary druid called Elwad constitutes child cruelty. Not this site, though.

I’m mentioning this first because I found the above image via Google image search and needed it on our front page. It’s perfect. The glazed expression of the father.
