In a break from our usual programming; a much-requested format RETURNS! This week on Shut Up & Sit Down, Tom and Matt are going head-to-head in a playthrough of Undaunted: Normandy! Who will win the Donkey Kong Banana Bunch? Who will be ashamed of their loss forever more?! Find out in around sixty minutes of easily digestible entertainment.Read More
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!Read More
Matt and Tom literally did this whole stream in a zero oxygen, zero gravity environment and NOBODY is talking about it. We didn’t want to mention it on stream for fear of looking a bit glib, but felt like you all should probably know about what is likely a world record. Where’s our big pint of Mr Guiness’ Brown Drink.
Galaxy Trucker! A powerful game of slowly eroding spaceships. Grab yourself a space beverage, a space seat, and prepare your space eyes for SPAENTERTAINMENTCE. This one was an awful lot of fun.Read More
Let me tell you a bit of a story behind this stream. When team SU&SD was out on our annual fishing trip last year, bobbing around on the Great British Lakes just outside Upton Snodsbury, Matt caught himself half a dozen beautiful fish. As he packed his catch into the cooler to take home and microwave, one particular fish caught his eye – a fish with a pencil tucked behind its gills and game design in its heart. That fish was Dominic Crapuchettes.
Fast forward a year, and Dominic has fully matured into a real human male, capable of making rather comprehensive board game designs. We sat down on Twitch to play his latest, Oceans, a game about being your truest, fishiest self in an ocean full of haters.Read More
Our team is taking a break from streaming on Twitch as we go roaring into convention season, but we’ve finally uploaded our very last stream to YouTube!
“A team-based management game?” you might be asking. “How does that work?” Well, as we found out, in some ways it doesn’t work, but that’s precisely the point.
Have a great weekend, everybody!Read More
Last summer, Quinns put out an excitable review of 878 Vikings, the latest instalment in a series he calls “The mac & cheese of wargaming.”
This summer, we’ve uploaded a clash of the (online) titans! Matt and Quinns taking on the streaming team of Creative Assembly, makers of the Total War videogames. And frankly, in the face of total war, we think our team did quite well.
Have a lovely weekend, everybody.Read More
This weekend, please enjoy a video plucked daintily from our Twitch channel.
For as long as SU&SD has been around, we’ve been fans of Space Alert. Even today, it might well be the most ridiculous, challenging and inventive co-operative game ever… erm, invented.
For anyone who missed it, you’ll find our review of Space Alert all the way back in this SU&SD episode from 2011, where we also reviewed Twilight Imperium and Race for the Galaxy. Classics, every one.Read More
Warning: This game contains choking hazards, fireballs, bees, snakes, rockfalls and a vengeful god. Do not operate while under the influence. Or was that “Only operate while under the influence”? We can’t remember.
Have a great weekend, everybody!Read More
Fab negotiation game Chinatown has finally received a new print run! To celebrate, Quinns dusted off the copy he used in his 2014 review for a playthrough on our Twitch page. Can Chinatown newcomers Matt and Kylie make a fool of him in his own streets? Yes, of course they can.
Ooh, and while you’re watching, don’t forget to quote the famous movie line! “Forget it, Jake. It’s prawns.”Read More
Get out the ice packs! It’s time for board gaming’s most bruising real-estate showdown.
But then, to simply call The Estates “bruising” is probably unfair. This game isn’t just cruel, it’s beautiful, and beautifully simple, and very funny indeed.Read More
