Review – Bunny Kingdom & Expansion

In this week’s review, Matt goes on a voyage of discovery into the wonderful world of Bunny Kingdom, and takes a quick detour through its expansion – Bunny Kingdom: In The Sky. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it somewhere in-between? Boy, does this review have at least one of these opinions to share with you.

To say that Matt got lost in the world of Bunny Kingdom would be an understatement – he was last seen eating fistfuls of carrot near an industrial estate in Milton Keynes. “It’s for my art” he reportedly yelled at a shocked elderly couple investigating the commotion, who were slightly disturbed by how much he really did look just like a real rabbit. If anyone has information as to Matt’s current whereabouts, please do let us know. Our HR department almost entirely has his best interests at heart.

Review: The King’s Dilemma

February 12, 2020 Reviews The King’s Dilemma Hot off the back of Mr Matthew “Stab u in the back” Lees declaring A War of Whispers as being the Game of Thrones game he’d always wanted? Mr Quintin Smith bounds onto the stage, saying almost exactly the same thing about The King’s Dilemma – but for … Read more

Review – Azul: Summer Pavilion

February 5, 2020 Reviews Somebody help us, they’ve only gone and made more. Azul: Summer Pavilion is the latest (and perhaps greatest) in the Azul expanded universe, and reviewing its wonderfully smooth and bevelled edges has driven Matt insane. Watch, in abject horror, as he talks at length with our latest Bintern, Big Bin Barry.

Review – A War of Whispers

Greetings, Warfans! If you love military sabotage and/or ASMR, then we’ve got some fairly mixed news for you. A War of Whispers features almost nobody speaking very, very quietly – but might be the Game of Thrones Game that Matt has always dreamed of. This is a simple, small box that does a great deal with very little – and is one of the most immediately exciting designs we’ve seen in years. Enjoy!

Review – Undaunted: Normandy

Do you like GUNS? Do you like CARDS? Do you like GRIEF?

If the answer to any of those questions is “Kind of?”, you’ve got to check out Undaunted: Normandy. Not only is it the greatest World War 2 game to come out in forever, it’s deliciously cheap.

What else is there to say? Except, of course, that we could not be more excited for Undaunted: North Africa later this year.

Matt Walks You Through His Board Game Collection

We’re kicking off the year with a much-requested video! Today Matt will be talking you through his relatively trimmed-down collection of board games, taking you by the hand and walking you through a mental corridor of joy, shame, and occasional warmth. We actually recorded this after PAX Unplugged this year, which explains a handful of references that don’t quite make sense, and why Matt looks a bit like a semi-retired yeti. If you missed Quinns’ collection video from last year, go and take a peek! We’ll be back soon with some exciting new reviews. 2020 is already shaping up to be a stonker!

 

And that’s it for 2019!

Quinns: And with that donation video, Shut Up & Sit Down is closing its doors for the winter break. We’d like to offer a gigantic, Christmassy “Thank you!” to everyone who watched, supported and shared our content in 2019. But since we can’t do that, we’re going to settle down with our families to eat 9999 brussel sprouts.

I’ll just add that we’re going to be talking a lot about the future of SU&SD in the coming donor newsletter. So if you want to hear about the SU&SD internship program, the future of our board game streaming, the (ridiculous!) pile of games that we plan to shine a light on in the new year and a lot more besides, make a donation of any amount before Christmas day and we’ll slingshot that over-stuffed newsletter into your inbox.

What I will say publicly is that while it’s been a while since we’ve released a podcast, we’re be back to our regular schedule of “About two podcasts a month maybe?” as soon as the new year begins.

We wish you all the best, everybody. See you soon!

Review: Cthulhu Wars

Gawd bless us every one! Quinns has cracked the lid from Cthulhu Wars‘ enormous box, and he’s stunned at what he’s found.

This is the sort of game that SU&SD usually steers people away from. It’s too big, too expensive, and much too silly. And yet Quinns is here today to rave about it. It’s a Christmas miracle!

And don’t forget to help us out on our 2019 Christmas Donation Drive!
