Podcast #131 - A Petulant Pharaoh

In what is clearly the 131st episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Matt, Tom and Ava are going to continue recent pod-tradition and natter about just the one game, thanks. That?s right, it?s Faiyum! A game about being both in Egypt and confused! Happens to the best of us. We?re going to be chatting about how it really works, how it sort of works and how it doesn?t work in a hodgepodge chat about one of the stranger board game offerings of 2020. We had some technical difficulties with this one, so apologies if things feel a bit bumpy. It suits the game in question!

Podcast #130 - The Big Reiner Lovecast

In this freshly-pressed 130th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, we?re making amends. The beefcast left the team torn in two, sundered, ruined... borked beyond repair. Now? It?s time to rekindle the fire; and what better way to do so than talk about the man that broke us. Reiner Knizia. Take a seat as Quinns and Tom natter about recent video review stars My City and Modern Art, with a little wiggly chat about The Quest For El Dorado smashed in the middle. We also take the time to make plenty of great behind-the-scenes podcasting errors, for your pleasure! Tap below for full timestamps and more info! Timestamps 01:45 - My City 17:28 - The Quest For El Dorado 27:20 - Modern Art

Podcast #129 - Mr Carnegie's Fun Emporium!

In this juicy 129th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, it?s time for business, baby! Join Matt and Tom for a conversation about Carnegie where our thoughts doth runneth over. Literally. We aimed to keep this one short and sweet but then Matt got ever so excited about history - something that we like to call ?a nerd move?, in the biz. Think of this one as the ?one-two-punch? of board game podcasts, if you will. A first half that basks in the utter joy of the thing, and a second where reality rears its ugly head at our barred doors. We just wanted to enjoy a game about a hard day?s work, reality! Why do you always spoil our fun?! I JUST WANTED TO CRUSH A WHOLE UNION IN PEACE!!! Have a lovely weekend! Timestamps 00:00 It?s Carnegie all the way down, my lovelies. Oh, also, this is Ava's first proper edit, out in the wild! It's so squeaky clean!

Podcast #128 - In The Pocket of Big Vampire

In the unbelievably 128th podcast we spend a surprisingly long time chatting about Vampire: The Masquerade: Vendetta, a game with as much blood as it?s got colons! This pink-hued game doesn?t take a rose-tinted view of the source material, which Quinns and Matt get deep into a big nostalgia blanket for - how sweet! Eventually we might even talk about the game. We wrap up with some racist beans, and a surprising experiment with Tom?s pockets! Timestamps: 01:22 - Vampire: The Masquerade: Vendetta 34:03 - Excalibohn 42:48 - Button Shy Wallet Games Part 2

Podcast #127 - Dune Imperium: Matt Lees Vs The People

In this garishly 127th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt, Tom and Ava have a meandering little chat-a-thon about Dune Imperium - a spicy hot game that at least two of the folks on the podcast aren?t all that hot for. I bet you can?t guess who. TIMESTAMPS: 01:19 - Dune Imperium 29:27 - Northwich Salt Museum 34:33 - Brief Button Shy Chat

Podcast #126 - Who Is Mr Uwe, and What Does He Want?

In this frighteningly 126th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Ava and Quinns try their very own best to convince our very own Tom to play their favourite Uwes. What?s an Uwe? I thought it was a big sheep, but I?ve been wrong before. TIMESTAMPS: 03:21 - Hallertau 25:55 - Glass Road 31:55 - Nusfjord 36:19 - Le Havre 41:28 - A Feast For Odin 49:51 - Bohnanza

Podcast #124 - Three Eurogames, One Word, and a Sticky Tongue

On this rambling 124th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down Podcast Ava, Tom, and Quinns chat about a couple light and silly games to brighten the mood before plunging headfirst into a big greasy barrel of eurogames. Master Word and Sticky Chameleons don?t stand a chance, guzzled up before your very ears like boardgame hors d?oeuvres. The main course? Alhambra, Merv and Beyond The Sun - each course more chunky and crunchy than the last. Get cosy and settle in for a banquet of the most enticing mechanics that boardgames have to offer... 2:08 - Master Word 13:50 - Sticky Chameleons 19:10 - Alhambra 32:49 - Merv 48:58 - Beyond The Sun

Podcast #123 - The All-New Family GameZone? Special

On this delectably 123rd episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down Podcast, join an incredibly tired Tom, Matt and Ava to discuss a smattering of games, most of which are juuuust fine. Sandwiching this podcast are twin discussions about Thurn Und Taxis and Under Falling Skies - and in between? It?s Tom?s Family GameZone, where we?ll (?) discuss (?) such riveting (?) titles as Cupcake Academy, What?s Missing?, Mr Face, Monsdrawsity, and Herd Mentality.

Podcast #122 - Marry My Migrating Metro

On this week?s BUMPER BOX podcast we?ve got SIX entire GameBoards for you to picture in your head as we loosely describe them with words and, quite frankly, a lot of noises? This podcast is really great if you?re a young child and want to hear a bunch of cool new ways you can make sounds with your mouth. What games are we going to create frequencies about this time, I hear you ask? We?ll be chatting about the unusual themes of Zestrea, the beautiful butterflies of Mariposas, the wonders of the internet in Sumatra, and sheer, unadulterated organisation in Maglev Metro. Then, to round it all out, we have a ramble about Fleet: The Dice Game and Troyes Dice - two games with the same core that couldn?t be more different. That makes it sound like a mid 90s comedy that stars Danny DeVito and Dwayne Johnson. Does that exist? It might already exist. Timestamps 01:27 - Zestrea 09:22 - Mariposas 19:00 - Sumatra 29:41 - Maglev Metro 41:33 - Fleet: The Dice Game 52:30 - Troyes Dice

Podcast #121 - The Stingless Spectacular

In this ghoulishly 121st episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Quinns, Ava and Tom once again settle into the lavishly upholstered podchairs to scream words about boardgames into a wall. NEW YORK ZOO (04:02)! MARIA (19:38)! LITTLE TOWN (40:06)! THE KING IS DEAD (55:41)! These are all words bellowed in an order that one would assume makes them titles for games - and we will run with that assumption to save everyone the embarrassment.

Podcast #120: James Bond?s Sexy Racist Kneecap.... LIVE!

Broadcast live and silly from AwSHUX 2020, this episode sees Ava and Tom delve into Mottainai (10:11) and A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (31:32)- the two very different boxes chosen for their respective application videos. Betwixt these two discussions we ramble about the infinite flowcharts of Combat Commander (06:45) and Dominant Species (16:04), before settling on lighter fare with Legendary: A James Bond Deckbuilding Game (39:30) - a box that asks the question: ?what if bond(s)?? We then wrap up with brief, punchy chats about putting your friends into a bind in Oriflamme (48:02), and putting your kangaroos into buns in New York Zoo (52:51).

Podcast #119 - The Big Reiner Beefcast

In this venomously 119th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast Ava, Quinns and Tom gather around the podfire to burn every game they own in a ritual that can be traced hundreds of years into the past. It?s to keep it at bay. This week we politely disagree about Village Green, tut about Glasgow, and aggressively grumble about Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Crypt Hunters. Then, the gloves come fully off for an all out argie-bargie over a load of Kniz? - Through The Desert! Blue Lagoon! Tigris & Euphrates! Yellow and Yangtze! They?re all here, and they?re all loudly shouting each other and I want to go home now please, Quinns did a swear. 01:51 - Village Green 10:43 - Glasgow 23:05 - Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Crypt Hunters 31:20 - Through The Desert & Blue Lagoon 48:42 - Tigris and Euphrates & Yellow and Yangtze

Podcast #118: Stuck Holding Double Badgers

Specifically, opinions about the board games Renature (01:41), Pictures (17:33), The Search for Planet X (34:12) and Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy (49:50), as well as some organic chat about Ride the Rails and Decrypto.

Podcast #117 - (Virtually) Live from the UKGE!

In this preposterously 117th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast Quinns, Ava and Tom are going absolutely LIVE to the UK Games Expo, threatening to snarf endless pizza in Fort, crunch the numbers in 18Chesapeake, and do ?Good Japanese Business? in Yokohama. Then, in a secret less-than-live twist, they?ll yoko-yammer-on-about 5D Chess With Multiverse Time Travel for far too long. Apologies for some occasionally crunchy audio at times on this one, and have a great weekend, everybody! 0:44 - Fort 11:40 - 18Chesapeake 22:44 - Yokohama 37:14 - 5D Chess with Multiverse Time Travel

In this hideously 116th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Matt, Ava and Tom return to Undaunted: North Africa, Struggle Imperially with Imperial Struggle, and wait patiently for the moon to hit their collective eyes like the big pizza pie that is Sonora (?!?), before finally having a rambly chat about Far Away.

Podcast #115 - Score The Boogie Bonus

In this undeniably 115th episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns resume the age-old tradition of shirtless podcasting, and talk about a slurry of games big and small. We kick off with a chat about The Deadlies (2:41), before pinging around on the tables of Super Skill Pinball 4Cade (11:45). Then, Quinns gets wistful about his foray into Fields of Arle(24:02), and we end on a highly controversial chat about Undaunted: North Africa (33:40).

Podcast #114 - The Ocean Grasps a Van

It's a full house, baby! In this episode of the podcast Ava and Quinns discuss FIVE games, each and every one of which is GOOD. There's Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 (04:15), Innovation (19:36), Geometric Art (34:12), Spirit Island (41:12) and Spicy (57:35). Has that ever happened on the podcast before? We're not going back to check. That could take *minutes*.

Podcast #113: The Double-Monster Solo-Roleplay Small-Box TeamBuilder 8000

Contained therein are discussions of everything from Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion to Team3, as well as a double-bill of SPOOKY MONSTER GAMES in Hakko Onna and Anomaly. We also take a little amble through solo-RPG land, returning to the wonderful (horrible) world of Thousand Year Old Vampire, and a discussion about Artefact - a game where you can finally be what you?ve always dreamed; a clarinet.

Podcast #112 - Spooked in Sea, Spooked in Space

On this week?s episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Matt, Tom & Ava sit around in a board game soup, rambling about a series of games that we?ve been playing in the darkest reaches of lockdown - and even go so far as to talk about some digital card games! The horror. Join us for a bumbling episode where we talk about everything from the raucous Forgotten Waters to the pensive and tense The Crew, as well as a quick chat about Gloomhaven and its upcoming mini-adventure Jaws of The Lion. We?ll also be talking about all the recent games we?ve been streaming - such as the delectable 1s and 0s of Slay The Spire, and the existential dread of Mothership. Last, but not least, we'll be giving some positively DANGEROUS thoughts about Wingspan, a game that everyone can agree is QUITE NICE.

Podcast #111 - Cramped Cats, Demonic Cricket

Are current events getting you down? In this episode of the podcast, Ava and Quinns discuss a selection of games that might make real life seem a little cheerier. There's the threat of drowning adorable animals in Isle of Cats (02:43), the demon invasion of Planet Apocalypse (12:53), the startling cruelty of Antiquity (24:17)and the bum-punishingly long Western Empires (46:01).

Podcast #110: The Death of Madeira 1000

Quinns, Tom and Ava voyage boldly into the great boardgame unknown, this time without Matt?s assistance on the technology side of things! The result? A podcast that?s deeply flawed. Am I going to triple-check the edit to make sure the audio isn?t slipping and sliding around, crashing into itself like an ouroboros of waveforms? I?m sure you?ll be able to guess the answer to that question by just listening to it. This week, we get covered in eldritch goop while talking about Cthulhu: Death May Die, barraged by dice AND pirates in Madeira, turned into candles with a Thousand Year-Old Vampire, and utterly BAFFLED by the interlocking systems in The Defence of Procyon III! We?ll also be talking a little about the games we?ve looked at recently, and discussing that stream.

Podcast #109 - Waterboarded By Elves

You, at the back! Was it you that ordered a chat sandwich? Was it with ramble bread and discussion filling - extra? stream schedule? Look. I spent ages trying to make a joke about this podcast being ?like a sandwich? - with the strong base of classic Eurogames (Terra Mystica and Hansa Teutonica) wedged between the spicy hot filling of Root Underworld and Frosthaven. But there you see my problem; the filling is on the outside and the bread on the inside and that just ?AINT a sandwich, chief. And then where does Mr Cabbagehead?s Garden fit in? The pieces are all there, but my brain won?t make them fit - the sandwich metaphor falls apart like a? like a? wet? sandwich. Dang it, just listen to the podcast. This week?s episode is extra chunky and was a lot of fun to edit! I Hope YOU (yes, you!) enjoy, and have a great weekend!

Podcast #108: Beatdown, Madness, Chaos in the Train

Look, I?m really sorry that I sat on the podcast intro music but what am I supposed to do, check every seat for audio files before I sit down? I know it?s a bit crushed and quiet, but if we give it enough love and care then it?ll spring back soon enough, I?m sure - and I can always do my own version of the music for the time being? Oh the podcast is meant to be out? today? I?ll see what I can do? This podcast may contain traces of trains - perhaps more than a trace, even, as Matt and Quinns discuss both Russian Railroads and 1889: History of Shikoku Railways in the space of just one hour. I know, it?s all getting a bit exciting. Squashed between those discussions like a fun filling in a games sandwich, Tom yammers on about Calico, Pax Pamir 2e and Watergate; games that somehow all contain the same levels of tension and despair in spite of their wildly differing themes.

Podcast #107: The City of the Pork Shoulders

?Ello ?ello ?ello, wot?s going on ?ere then? Looks and sounds like there are three english men crammed inside one english cupboard talking about a series of ?board games? from who knows where. That?s a recipe for disease-based disaster right there. Let?s see what we?ve got in here then... City of the Big Shoulders? You?re certainly crammed shoulder-to-shoulder in here, though one of you is a bit smaller than the others. I?ve heard it?s as good an economic euro as any, though I, for one, prefer my commodity speculation games a little less beige. Last Bastion? I?ve heard that one?s a pretty dandy co-operative game, but personally I felt the fantasy redesign was a little lacking. Wait, I swear on me nan?s ghost that I saw more games in here when I first burst in. Are you hiding ?em? What?s that on there? Is that a game on your mobile device, Mr Lees? Is it Vlaada Chvatil?s classic tableau-builder, Through The Ages? You of all people should know those is contraband, as they remind people of ?the time before?, when they could play games with their friends around their tables spreading all their germs. Not any more. You?re going to prison, but seen as we can?t go outside, I?m locking you in your own dishwasher. It?s for the best.

Podcast #106: The Very First Quarantine Special

Welcome to the loosiest, goosiest episode of the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast yet, where three adults try to have a conversation via the internet without talking over each other all of the time. Experience the mixed results contained therein, and marvel at how 5 games are thinly spread over an hour of your real lifespan like an existential marmalade made of cardboard and opinions. What games, I hear you ask? I was getting there, no need to get impatient. This week we?re going to be talking about bobbing around on an ocean of average in Flotilla, drinking some questionably garnered tea in Alubari: A Nice Cup Of Tea, and pelting druids with rocks in Cairn. Sandwiched amidst these activities one can find a brief segue through the eccentric Tokyo Game Show, and a brief visit to the ancient tabletop colossus that is The Castles of Burgundy. Also in this podcast: meandering chats about how the team is faring under quarantine, and a few brief teases of potential bread-based content.

Podcast #105: BIG GAMES, SMALL PODCAST

DISCLAIMER: The thumbnail for this podcast contains more business than is actually contained in this podcast. Instead, on this short, sleepy episode, a tired old Matt and a sickly young Tom have a meandering chat about just four games. ?That?s not enough games for my Friday night podcast-listening session!? I hear you cry, panicked and approaching a point of crisis. Fear not, listener, as this winding little journey will take you through the staggering highs of Stockpile, the crushing lows of Big City and Orleans Stories, before a twist ending where they were all Nemesis all along. Not only that, but there are tiny little trails along the way - a tease of City of the Big Shoulders, for sir? Maybe a trickle of Little Town? It?s all here and it?s all in audio form on this very 105th Shut Up and Sit Down Podcast.

Podcast #104: ?Ain?t no party like a Glenmore II: Chronicles party

Welcome, diners, and take your seats for what will surely be a smashing dinner service at the very 104th Shut Up & Sit Down podcast. Enjoy a salty fish supper alongside Oceans, a haggis and a whisky with Glen More II: Chronicles, or a rubbery old hot-dog with Rallyman GT. All options are served with opinions from our cardboard sommelier Matt Lees, and a side of steaming hot takes from our acrylic potwash, Tom Brewster. Speaking of sides, this week?s podcast features a smorgasbord of canapes, vol au vents and other esoteric snacklets in our detour through Tom?s exclusive, invite-only Party Game Zone?. You can find us in the cordoned off area, chatting about a series of games that you could bring to a party, and smattering of games that you should bring to a party. No +1s are permitted, and BYOB(oardgames). We also have a post-dinner keynote speech about recent videos on the site - including the palpably divisive review of Bunny Kingdom. Quinns and Tom aren?t on speaking terms after that one, on account of the attempted murder. 1:30 Oceans 11:16 Rallyman GT 24:35 Stay Cool 28:24 Decrypto + Laser Drive Expansion 31:49 Good Cop, Bad Cop 37:47 Gorilla Marketing 44:55 Trophies 50:34 Glen More II: Chronicles 1:02:20 Bunny Kingdom

Podcast #103: Welcome to the Ketchup Age

Look out! Podcast #103 is charging towards your fragile human body like the untameable beast of content that it well and truly is. Be shocked, as we wrangle with Clinic! Gasp in horror as we consume Irish Gauge? whole! And last but not least, be kind of bummed out as we talk about why Maracaibo is... a bit bad? This episode also features fleeting special guest appearances from Clipcut Parks, Food Chain Magnate?s latest expansion; The Ketchup Mechanism, and two games with ?letter?s in their name. Technically all the games have letters in their name, but these ones literally have letters in their name. You?ll see what we mean. We also talk a little about recent video reviews! Well, one video review, because Quinns got so excited about the prospect of playing Azul: Summer Pavilion, that he forgot to talk about his review. It has that effect on people.

Podcast #100: International Trouser Accidents

Matt and Quinns are briefly joined by Pip for an sleep-deprived natter about some interesting games. Obscurio (16:14) sounds like Wizard-Dixit with traitors, and incredibly summoned a cheer from the crowd simply for use of the word ?acetate?. Tumblin? Dice (21:05) got a little love, but probably deserves more than anyone can give it, before Matt then went on to talk about playing the award-winning RPG Mothership (24:50) - a sci-fi horror system that conveys the relatable experience of waking up after a very long time and immediately being attacked by stress. We were thrilled to find that many of those who?d managed to check it out at SHUX finally understood the hype from our review of Blood on the Clocktower (35:13) - a beautiful beast that is more than the sum of its frankly dastardly parts. Delving into Vast: the Mysterious Manor (39:58) - an asymmetrical game in which you can literally play as the mysterious manor - left us with mixed feelings about pacing but strong feelings towards skeletons, before we finally talked about food and/or animals with Yum Yum Island (45:36) and Nickelodeon Splat Attack! (50:06). Apologies for the quality of the audio in this episode - we had some issues with the room that we weren?t able to resolve. If you?d like to listen to this episode with ?moving pictures?, you can also watch it on Youtube!

In what is still definitely *not* our 100th episode, Quinns and intern Ben summon the energy to discuss their 12 hour game of Western Empires (02:32) and the byzantine challenge of Cloudspire (18:05). With these massive games discussed and dusted, there's talk of lighter stuff: Skulk Hollow (29:38), Teotihuacan: City of Gods (37:05), Yokai (43:06), Detective Club (46:57), and Combo Fighter (53:06).

Those would be Taverns of Tiefan Thal (01:51), Carpe Diem (13:48), Luxor (26:47), Silk (33:13) and Rail Pass (49:37). The pair also discuss some of the video reviews they've been working on, including Pipeline (1:00:58) and Too Many Bones (1:06:54).
