In this new paradigm in Shut Up & Sit Down Podcasting history, Tom and Quinns are chatting about what they think the board game industry holds for us all… in 2023!

Delightful! And Ava, don't you dare consider this "failed ASMR" when every time you say "walk" the "k" is hiding at the end like a chipmunk among the leaves just teasing us with its uncertain presence.

I was sick of listening to the radio. I drive a lot for work. Someone suggested I listen to podcasts. So here I am. I've only listened to SU&SD podcast so far. For the past 5 months. Nearly listened to all of them. Enjoyed all the content so far. Great reviews. Fun as well.

It's amusing to me that you guys touched on here, in your first podcast, the exact reason I started following your content (in 2019): your reviews aren't just 'this is how the game plays' - your reviews are 'if you're the kind of person who likes XYZ, you'll probably like this game, but if you like ABC, this probably isn't the game for you' Plus y'all are so much fun :)

Great and fun podcast about board games, card games and the like. Recommend it to anyone with at least a passing interest in it. The hosts are charming, fun and pleasant to listen to. Topics are new games, newly played games and everything in between. Highly recommend

Watched their reviews for several years now, but lots of evenings stuck in a lab has led me to getting into podcasts, and this is one of the best. Witty, interesting content and great back and forth between them. Am subscribing for sure!

I've been following Shut Up & Sit Down's Youtube channel for a couple of years now, but it wasn't until recently that I discovered this podcast. And it's perfectly fantastic. So thank you for what you do! I've come to depend on your reviews when deciding on games to invest in, and have not been disappointed in any of your recommendations. Keep being awesome!
