Best Board Game Podcast

What makes this podcast so great is the honesty that the 3 of them bring to the show. Sure they are super funny and knowledgeable, but you come back because you trust their opinion.

Funny, approachable, insightful

My favorite podcast, these three crack me up and I love the different perspectives. My first listen I was impressed to hear their negative reaction to a ‘hot’ game while explaining the concepts in a way that any audience could understand - if more podcasters and reviewers had such courage, we could move past the hype and narrow down the list of games to try since there will never be enough time to check out everything out there.

I've always liked board games, but it wasn't until recently that I started to dig deeper into the hobby. As I was trying to get more information, a few channels and review sources stuck out to me. These guys are some of my favorite to listen to. What makes Shut Up and Sit Down so amazing is how much they love board games. All of this is a just a channel for them to share that enthusiasm with others, which is refreshing. I've lost count of how many times I've been pulled in to their description of a game and either written it down to look up later or stopped everything and searched for it immediately. You’re given amazing conversations and great games to find and play with the people in your life. I would recommend anyone interested in board games to download this podcast.

Always entertaining and clever

The best podcast about board games. The lads (Quinns, Matt, Paul) are sharp-witted and always present a great conversation about the games they are playing. I always listen to this immediately when it's published. Just subscribe already.

The SUSD podcast is an entertaining and informative look at the exciting tabletop games you can play today. Not only is it great to hear about new games you might enjoy, it’s genuinely enjoyable to listen to these friends talk about them together. Thanks SUSD!

SU&SD got me into board games

by aush22 on May 25, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

The SU&SD crew are consistently entertaining and informative. They may not cover as many games as other podcasts, but they curate what they talk about very well and their delivery is second to none. You listen to this podcast not only to hear discussion about great games, but also to sit in the room with one of the funniest and most eloquent groups in the business. Their mission was to get more people involved in board games and that mission has succeeded in my own case and, by proxy, many many people around me. So hop in this cozy cardboard canoe of cordial company and let’s go! Who cares what the waters will look like or that cardboard doesn’t float very well, because I guarantee you will have a great time with SU&SD as your captain.

The Best board game podcast

I am discovered the podcast for shut up and sit down about two years after I started watching the videos and boy was a l missing out. Once I heard the one I had to go back and listen to as many as I can find. They talk about so many more games here and their perspective is fascinating. I find a lot podcasts try and explain the games in too much detail for an audio program and I get lost but these guys boil the games down to their essentials. I get a sense of how I will feel when I play a game. I can not say enough good things about this podcast. I await its arrival with baited breath. And I walk away having laughed and being excited to try something new. These guys are a treasure to our hobby.

I've been having SU&SD withdrawals after failing to move over to the new feed. Sweating and shaking, I've scrolled through my iTunes feed looking for a podcast to scratch that deep, deep itch, but none came close. But now, finally, I can tie off my earbuds and take a sweet hit of some uncut, black tar game reviews. Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh...

Best reviewers in board gaming

by Rodneyven on Apr 10, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

These chaps are funny and informative. I check every game through them if I can before buying. They love the big box, 6 hour games but they are also incredibly relatable to the more casual gamer who needs a 15-30 minute adventure like Splendor or Fox in the Forest (2 games I bought on their recommendation and LOVE).Subscribe here, subscribe on YouTube! Give them all the stars.

I really enjoy the YouTube channel these guys have. I never knew of the podcast until just recently and love it even more. I do enjoy board games, I think it brings people together and allows time away from social media and other things in our life that is so distracting. Money is always an issue when getting into a hobby and this one is no different and you guys help direct me towards board games I may have missed. Keep the content coming. Love the podcast.

These three people (?) produce the best reviews and commentary on board games on the internet. They entertainingly let you know if you’ll be interested and why; rather than just explaining the rule. I find that they expose the real hidden elements of games. Keep on keeping on guys.

Appointment Download - A Must Listen

My younger son and I love SUSD and the podcast is fantastic. The boardgaming hobby/scene/fetish/compulsion is something that we enjoy, and Quinns, Matt, and Paul are fantastic voices for those of us who are members of this fun group/lifestyle/cult/cabal. The banter and discussion is helpful, entertaining and accessible and although we do not always agree with their suggestions (fine/freethinking/heresy!) we have grown to match our own interests to what they do and do not like, which is just as helpful. A seriously fun and highly recommended download or stream - if you like board games, reviews, or (in the case of my lovely yet flighty school counselor) just hearing English accents, you need to listen to the SUSD podcast/propaganda/holy oratory today

A Great Gaming podcast

by AOSpark on Mar 16, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

The style is a meandering conversation amongst friends that focuses on their shared experienced and joys in playing games. They try to keep the conversation somewhat focused, taking turns discussing a game they played or reivewed recently, but it isn't ever very formal, and digressions are common. Easy to listen to, even if you don't know the games they're talking about you get a good sense for the feel of the game, and what they thought of it, both as journalists in the gaming industry but also as people who have biases and opinions. They are humourous, generally up-beat and positive, even when dealing with games they obviously didn't like (though it is relatively rare they spend much time discussing games they didn't like).I've watched the videos they produce on their website for years now, and this is a very good addition of more generalized information regarding the board game hobby (their video are single game focused reviews, typically with a theme or story-line humourously framing the actual review).Also, they're British, so if that's a plus for you, then it's a plus for this podcast.

Good amount of yammering on about board games with plenty of off topic tangents by a tight group of chumps. It’s the only podcast I bother listening to.

No ‘one play reviews’

by GrahamWills on Mar 10, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

I became frustrated with other review shows where they play games maybe once or twice and then review them, going for quantity over quality. This show doesn’t do that, so I can trust that a review is based on actual play like I play games, not based on trying to play and review five games a night.Also, very funny and literate.

Great Podcast!

The lads always do a great job of presenting a lot of good information while being very entertaining. I feel like I am laughing for at least 75% of each episode. My only regret is that I just started listening a month or two ago. On the bright side that leaves me 60+ episodes to listen to in order to get caught up. Two pears up!

SU&SD is great plain and simple. Their video reviews are mad fun in the vein of Top Gear for board games and the podcast is funny. They know gamming very well and impart that knowledge briliantly.

Rating: ★★★★★

I've been watching SU&SD's videos for about 3 years now and listening to the podcast since it started, and Quinns, Paul, and Matt are such a joy to listen to. They are so enthusiastic about games, and so thoughtful as well. Even when they've played a game they don't like they are able to put words to those feelings that go beyond "It was a bit crap" and become actually useful critique. If you are interested in tabletop gaming, Shut Up and Sit Down is an essential podcast, and frankly their entire website is essential as well.

Quinns, Paul, Matt & friends are some of the most entertaining and insightful board game reviewers out there. The podcast is largely off the cuff. It's packed with awful puns, dry british humor, and lots of nonsense and tom foolery.If you have even a passing interest in board games, I recommend giving these fine board game boiiis a listen.
