    Podcast #139 - The ManualCast

    In this butt-clenchingly 139th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, we’re talking all about manuals! Do not try to escape, you have been warned! Thrills abound as Matt and Ava jungle-gym their way through a forest of Adobe products, kerning, and intriguing observations - all centered around RATS: High Tea at Sea - the roll and write that we think is quite good! No need to ask for any other opinions, we are the professionals, after all.

    Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

    Podcast #138 - Live From AwSHUX 2021!

    Podcast #138 - Live From AwSHUX 2021!

    Live and scary from AwSHUX 2021, it’s Quinns, Tom and Ava! Apologies for the incredibly unhinged energy on this one, it was powered by nerves and I’m also editing it at 1 in the morning! What a combination!

    We’ve got an absolutely brutal lineup of games on this one, folks. We’re talking plants, gardens and sheds in Three Sisters, we’re slapping down a bunch of little wooden towers in Medina, and we’re serving up hot hot murder on our pals in Night of the Ninja.

    BUT WAIT! There’s more! At the tail-end of this pod, embark on an odyssey of AwSHUX previews! Tom and Quinns will battle it out in an arena of hyperbole - armed with 26 separate previews that they’ve ruthlessly whittled into the silliest segment around!

    Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

    Podcast #137 - Nidavelladia!

    Podcast #137 - Nidavelladia!

    In this indubitably 137th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns are producing decibels about two games that they are both a bit excited about! First off we’ll ramble about Nidavellir’s moody dwarves and chunky coins before taking a break in the wilderness of Cascadia; a land of solitary bears and salmon on the slalom.

    We then finish this pod off with some very brief thoughts on recent video reviews for Cubitos and Stardew Valley: The Board Game - so if you need thoughts on rolling, growing, moving, and crowing… then you’ve come to the right place on your Friday evening! What luck!

    Podcast #136 - Beef StrogAnnov

    Podcast #136 - Beef StrogAnnov

    In this imperceptibly 136th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Ava, Tom and Quinns chat about two chunky pieces of cardboard chicanery about people in history going places and taking what they find. Anno 1800 and Stroganov are up for discussion and travelling in opposite directions in more ways than one.

    Podcast #135 - The Solo RPG Special

    In this whimsically 135th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Tom and Quinns chat about a number of single-player pen-and-paper map-drawing/journal-making role-playing games - or ‘Solo RPGs’, for short. We’ll be digging deep into Delve, thinking back to Field Guide To Memory, and shooting upwards to be Alone Among The Stars, each game a new designer and a new direction.

    Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

    Podcast #134 - The Great Tollbooth In The Sky

    In this floaty 134th episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast, Matt and Quinns peek through a collection of cumulonimbi to deliver their verdict on just one game: CloudAge! Expect a dash of opinion, some twists of chatter, and just one unexpected visitor. We’ve got it all!

    Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

My favorite board game podcast

This is my go to podcast for everything board game related. Even when describing games I will never play, the insights on design, presentation and ethics are always educational. Plus, the rotating cast are always engaging and fun to listen to.

Change of tone

SUSD was one of my main entry points into the hobby and had been my favorite boardgame content for years but the light hearted tone with hilarious bits seems to taken a back seat to the focus on talks of who can be the most offended by a game this week. While the boardgame discussion is still good and the new podcast members have been a welcome addition the constant negative focus isn’t what I want from my hobby podcasts.

Miss you Paul Dean
