Matt continues his decade-long love-letter to War of the Ring – the game he hated, then loved, and still doesn’t own a copy of. It’s a chunky box for something that maybe only gets brought out twice in a decade? But oho! What is THIS? Can this retooled cards-only version of the strategy epic serve as a decent replacement? Can CARDS ALONE do justice? Maybe one simply CAN wander into Mordor, for a laugh? Just for the fun of it? Some of this and MORE, in today’s Lord of the Rings extravaganazaza, War of the Ring: The Card Game.Read More
This week on the show, we’ve got something a little different! In this short ramble, Ava’s going to tell you all about Hamlet – a game about wonky villages and the strange incentives that build them. Although, she’s not really going to tell you all about Hamlet – this is not a review! Instead, we’re testing the waters on something of a new format – the pilot of ‘Ava Thinks Too Much About…’ where we’ll take a short journey through whatever topic is bouncing around her brain. Enjoy!Read More
Oh my goodness, Tom played Dota 2 again and now he can’t stop. In this hot hot episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Boardgame Video Review Show, Tom and Matt took a big dip into Guards of Atlantis II – the much hyped MOBA-‘Em-Up for your tabletop! What a fascinating, strange game! You can find all of our relevant opinions on it… right here! Enjoy!Read More
It’s longer and colder than an arctic vacation, but we’re proud to finally release into the wilds our gigantic video review of Frosthaven: can the world’s biggest game get bigger AND better? How much blue cardboard is too much blue? What’s the best way to climb a slippery mountain? Find the answers to some of these questions in today’s hot hot bit of internet media.Read More
In this CHUNKY video review, Tom and Quinns are appraising ten (ten!) unique small-box games and telling YOU where the gems are at. All of these games are fabulous, we had a blast playing them, and we hope you enjoy this frankly rather silly little video.Read More
No horses in this game, no sir. Just car. Big horse made of metal. Kind of like a cow made of metal if we’re being real. Cowless Carriage isn’t as good a name though, plus it doesn’t make any sense. I really like the name of this game, y’know? Horseless Carriage. It’s maybe my favourite name of any tabletop game. I didn’t say that in the review because I couldn’t find a place for it, but I think it’s a true fact. Oath is pretty close behind, swiftly followed by Hey That’s My Fish.
It’s the first video of the year, and Tom is blowing off the cobwebs with a quick ramble about Rummikub – the classic family tile-laying game that he’s been playing for years! Sorry about the crisis at the start. It happens this time of year.
