tbh, I generally enjoy playing different games than what SUSD recommends. But I still love listening to the podcast and watching their reviews. Even if they donât enjoy a game they still find the good in each game. They provide a great synopsis of how a game plays and how it feels to play it! They are just wonderful people to listen talk about games!
Great show. While I sometimes disagree, the show is funny and thoughtful, always giving a breakdown and reasons for their opinions
High quality reviews! Matt, Paul and Quinnâs re-introduces me to the art of board games. They are like the tour guides of the wonderful world of gaming, showing you what is worth buying and what isnât. This podcast has all the good parts of their amazing video reviews. The comedy, the insight, the charisma and the extravagance.
This podcast has been my go-to for board gaming podcasts for a few years now. Quinnâs and I have the same taste in games which helps, but the reviews are insightful and well thought out.
I donât always agree with all their reviews since they favor tons of player interaction but the duo is clearly more educated, thoughtful, articulate, witty and enjoyable than any other board game reviewers. Like you actually get the sense they should be journalists vs many other hobbyists who just also happen to like the sound of their own voice. 5/5.
I save it and savor it. Great conversation, great guys, great games (at least when they tell you theyâre great games).
Excellent perspective. Love the chemistry that Quinns, Matt, and Paul have together. Highly recommend.
I love these guys so much that I listen to this podcast on a wierd egg.
I love listening to these guys talking baout whatever weird new games they've got their hands on. Almost always 1 or 2 games that sound like they'd be fun for my group, and then I go dig deeper on them.
Great reviews that take a critical eye - even to games they love. They can really give you a good sense of what a board game plays like and let you know what type of person may like a game they donât. Very fair and thoughtful. Chanting and entertaining to boot!
These guys give unique opinions with good reasons behind them, but consider the gamer first and foremost. And theyâre funny. Very funny. Listen to these guys, even if you donât agree. They bring perspective, jokes, and sometimes food.
Love listening to this on my egg
There are too many podcasts of free form conversations about personal opinions. This one has enough charm and informed content to rise above. Thanks buds!
Listener from Lebanon here! Outstanding reviews! Those three take their job very responsibly and seriously!
A witty, charming group of people, who provide an insightful and often funny take on a huge number of boardgames. I especially enjoy how they sometimes dig a little bit more into the games, discussing, for example, issues of representation. They're the kind of people you wish you knew!
I love these bois, thanks for the hours of entertainment and for teaching me all about the best of the hobby. I just replaced risk, apples to apples, and settlers of catan with lords of Vegas, Inis, and galaxy trucker. I canât wait for them to arrive, thanks for all yâall do.
Simply the best.
I donât really enjoy board games, but their passion for the topic keeps me entertained. I love the podcast and the YouTube channel!
Su&SD is not just a great gaming podcast (which it is), itâs one of the best podcasts *of any kind* available. The hosts are genuinely witty, really know their stuff, and each episode has a lot of heart. One warning: this show will make you want to spend way too much money on games.
If you're actually reading this review, please stop and just listen to the podcast. You shouldn't waste anymore of your life without this level of amaziness in it. Check out their website, all their presences on various social media platforms, their video reviews, their live appearances, their very own convention in Canada called SHUX, throw some money their way... you will regret none of it!
To be honest, the poscast is probably my least favorite aspect of the Shut up and Sit down empire, and my five star rating is still totally genuine by the way, so that goes to prove how much I love their written work and video reviews. Its just a shame that the podcast is kind of a dumping ground for games that are good, but not great enough to be given a full review treatment, but the casual discussion is a nice way to round out the sharp wit of their reviews.
Great opinions from great people recommending great games. Very positive about their passion for tabletop; and always looking for joy & story in everything they undertake.
Subscribe and listen to intelligent, witty, and just good old fashioned fun discussions about board gaming! Donât be afraid to listen to the older episodes as well. They are full of laughs and due to the nature of board games, they are still relevant. These guys deserve every bit of support you can give.
Their discussions of games are great fun and very informative. If you are at all interested in board games and being entertained give this a listen!
Iâm new to the podcast, having listened to the last four episodes. Iâve been looking for the right game review podcast for a while. Too many podcasts subscribe to the cult of the new to be useful to my needs. I appreciate that shut up sit down doesnât just follow the current trends in games. Their reviews are nuanced based on a mix of personal opinions and experience based on their history of gaming. The reviews are even open enough to say, âI think this game is good but not for me.â Thatâs rare voice.
Hey. These are good people. You should listen to them and then watch their videos. Why? Because weâve got to make sure Paul is eating right.
Everyone has different tastes when it comes to board games, but for the pure entertainment value, I have yet to see anything as good as Shut Up and Sit Down. A lot of reviews/discussions of board games out there can be dry and amateurish, but everything SU&SD puts out is made with care and attention. While I donât always agree with their recommendations or negative reviews, itâs always entertaining and the chemistry of everyone involved is high. Definitely worth checking out and seeing for yourself!
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.
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 âhotâ 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.
One of the Best board game podcasts.
Great commentary and banter, excellent insights. Good pacing and breadth. This is the gold standard of what board game podcasts should be.
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. Youâre 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.
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, itâs genuinely enjoyable to listen to these friends talk about them together. Thanks SUSD!
Even-handed reviews and criticism from a trio of passionate players. Come for the games, stay for the people.
Honest, funny reviews, and opinions of the modern table top gaming hobby. Professionally produced and always entertaining.
These three guys are some of the best in the business. You really can't appreciate what they do, how they do it nor their passion for the hobby without listening to this podcast. Keep up the great work!
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 letâs go! Who cares what the waters will look like or that cardboard doesnât float very well, because I guarantee you will have a great time with SU&SD as your captain.
For all tabletop gamers, this is good. Paul Matt and Quinns are all hilarious
I like board games a lot. I love SU&SD. Smart and funny and thought-provoking and occasionally heartwarming.
My favorite board games podcast. Keep it up!
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.
UKs #1 chump podcast.
I need to stop listening to this show, it keeps making me buy more board games
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...
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.
Thoughtful look into hobby gaming.
These three people (?) produce the best reviews and commentary on board games on the internet. They entertainingly let you know if youâll 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.
That is a whole lot of Pears!
