Review: All 28 Railroad Ink Expansions

The person who actually received the review copy for Railroad Ink: Deluxe Edition (Railroad Ink Challenge: Lush Green, Railroad Ink Challenge: Shining Yellow and all the dice expansions) was Quinns. I (Tom) had to persuade Mr Quintin to relinquish his grasp on the box because, of course, I was the bigger, better fan of Railroad Ink – I play it on my own, for goodness sake.

Little did I know that the box was a Monkey’s Paw. Little did I know that within a few short months, I would be rattling on about ‘The Rainbow Die’, ‘The Eldritch Expansion’ and drawing up the tier list from (and starring) hell. The words and behaviour of the utterly deranged. Enjoy!

Review: Oath

Oats! The latest, biggest, four-letter-iest board game from Leder Games! It is not to be confused, mind, with Oath. That game SUCKS.

In this week’s review, Tom is spending a sweet half of an hour talking you through the ins and outs of this year’s most anticipated, most perplexing title. How good is it? Short answer: very – but click play for a whole bundle of words that are slightly more nuanced than that…

Review – MicroMacro: Crime City

Knock knock, who is there, it is crime – and it has come to take all of your things away from you and use them to buy other, different things. So it goes.

In this week’s video review, Tom takes a look at the ‘very large detective’ simulator MicroMacro: Crime City. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it somewhere in-between?! Hopefully this video review will do the detective work for you! Expect ‘at least one joke’, some seriously dry b-roll, and one rare instance of good timekeeping.

Review: The Red Cathedral

This week you’ll find an unusually restrained version of Matt Lees reviewing another small-box stonker from publisher Devir. We enjoyed Silk quite a bit a few years ago, but this crunchy little number, The Red Cathedral, is the real, real deal.

Review – Beyond The Sun

May 12, 2021 Reviews Beyond the Sun In this week’s video review, Tom is blasting off into SPACE to find the spreadsheet of his dreams in a game packed to the gills with iconography. Is one large icon better than two, smaller icons? Find out right here! As dry as Beyond The Sun most certainly … Read more

Review – Stardew Valley: The Board Game

After the year we’ve had, who among us isn’t dreaming of moving to the country? Well, now you can give the rural life a test-drive with Stardew Valley: The Board Game, a board game adapation of the wildly successful videogame.

It’s fair to say that SU&SD hasn’t had the easiest time recommending video game adapations, but hey! There’s a first time for everything, right?

…right?

Review: Cubitos

Cubes! Everyone’s favourite three dimensional solid. Tom incorrectly refers to the components in this game as ‘dice’ over and over again, when in reality the game makes it explicitly clear that these are in fact Cubitos; borne of the mother cube, emissaries to the world of… other… shapes…

Listen, Cubitos is a game so full of wackiness that it becomes hard to write jokes about, which is why I outsourced all the humour in this video to a tub of green face paint. Watch at your peril, the J-cuts are all wrong and the green still hasn’t quite come out of my beard!

Review: Paleo

CAVES! FORESTS! MAMMOTHS!

What do all of these things have in common? That’s right! You can die inside them.

Today Quinns is looking at new co-operative game Paleo, and do you know what? This is one of the better co-op games to land on our desk in recent years. It’s also – you’ll never guess – kind of problematic.

Apologies in advance if this video means you can never enjoy Bonk’s Adventure the same way again.

Review: Kitchen Rush

In this week’s review, Tom takes a look at Kitchen Rush – a decision that was entirely made by his family. ‘You’ve got to review it, we like it!’ they said. They were… Right, I suppose? I did have fun making the video. And speaking of fun…

That’s right folks,  in this video you can say hello to the newest month in the Shut Up & Sit Down calendar – fun month! From now on, that’s what March is. We got approval from the man behind the counter at WHSmith, who said he’d get it sorted with the bigwigs as soon as possible. He charged us very reasonably, considering the hassle.
