Podcast #199.75 - Destroying Vienna, Rebuilding Seattle

In this acrimonious episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, it?s a Tom-And-Quinns-Knee-To-Knee Special! We?re talking about two games whilst incredibly close to each other in a quasi-live podcast experience! On this episode, we?re focusing our wrath on two cities in Rebuilding Seattle and Fire & Stone: Siege of Vienna 1683. They?re both games, and we?ve played them!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Not satisfied with just having ?a whole bunch of hosts?, we?re also talking about a ?whole bunch of games? - notably the boxes we enjoyed whilst at SHUX in sunny Vancouver. Not all of these are out yet, and some of them aren?t really real, but we figured that you would enjoy the chat nonetheless.

Podcast #188 - How Do You Pitch a Game? (w/Tim Clare)

Ava: Well look at that! It?s an interview. Well something like that. I spent the evenings of the ?United? Kingdom?s Game Exposition chatting with my favourite podcaster-poet-editor-writer Tim Clare, then convinced him to get together to have a chat about a thing. We?re offering tips and thoughts on how to ?pitch a game?, both at a convention, and in your very own home. Do we stay on topic? Occasionally! But hopefully it?s a fun listen.

Go find Tim on twitter or his very own website timclarepoet.co.uk. I genuinely think Death of a Thousand Cuts, and particularly the couch to 80k bootcamp/100 day writing challenge are the absolute best ways to get stuck into creative writing, and his first page critiques (the reason I thought he?d be a great person to speak to about this) are the absolute best writing advice you can get! Check him out, he?s lovely.

I?m hoping to put together a few more interviews and other ?special? podcasts over the coming months, so do let us know what you think. Opinions and suggestions welcome to [email protected] or on our website. If it doesn?t sound up your street, do feel free to skip it! It?ll probably be a normal pod with more familiar voices next time you visit!

Podcast #187 - More Podcasts About Buildings and Villages

In this deeply sponsored episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Matt are talking about two ferociously dry games. First up is the pastoral human-collector Villagers, and second up is the vertical build-em-up Akropolis.

Live and happening, it's a podcast! When I edit podcasts, I usually slice out the bits where I sound silly, or ask if it's 'time to talk about Rats' too many times; but in the live format, they have to stay. On this very special episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt and his two adult children are talking about a bunch of games! We've got the absolute excess of Wonderlands War, the snakes-and-ladders-worker-placement of First Rat and the secret sneaky bidding of Dreadful Circus alongside plenty of healthy chat about a Wibbly Wobbly Egg.

On this podcast we?re chatting about our lengthy first impressions of Crescent Moon and our much snappier first impressions of Bear Raid, as well as literally about 20 seconds of talking about the Mind MGMT app - so little, in fact, that I haven?t even timestamped it!

Finally, we?re talking about our not-too-positive experience with Memoir ?44 Flight Plan, and Quinns asks everyone a difficult question.

In this spiritual episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Matt and Tom are talking about just one game - a game that has sat alone on Tom?s ?To-Play? shelf like a bottle of brown sauce in a wetherspoons sauce caddy. That?s right, it?s Bitoku, a game about splodging sauce all over a beautiful forest until various bears, otters and raccoons come to lick of all the liquid from the branches and leaves: yum yum yum.

Through three ferocious bouts of slippery copyright law, our heroes put their heroes to the test in a battle of wits, strategy, and pointing out how ridiculous it is that Bloody Mary just dropkicked Bigfoot.

Huzzah.

On this podcast you can hear words about the hellacious retail disasterpiece of Brick & Mortar, the dice-chucking mayhem of Rush Out! and the nonsensical auctions of Furnace. Three games wallowing in a lot of minutes - minutes stuffed with observations, rammed with remarks and runneth(ing) over with criticismé.

Podcast #158 - Roll 'n Bug

In this chaotic 158th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Ava, Tom and Quinns are slamming bugs into walls! We?re talking about the expansive box-ticker Hadrian?s Wall alongside the entomologically-inclined wrasslin? of Kabuto Sumo! We also have some brief chats about our recent video reviews of Descent: Legends of the Dark and Burgle Bros 2: The Casino Capers - two be-coloned sequels of varying quality!

Apologies for some slight background noise at times in this one - all three of us had various drilling going on nearby that was hard to weasel out properly! And, as Quinns mentions at the end of this one, there won?t be a podcast for the next couple of weeks while we focus on getting prepped for AwSHUX. See you toward the end of October for a live special!

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

In this deliberately 156th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Matt are poring through the back-catalogue after a lovely afternoon of playing nice games together.
