It goes without saying that most things are made better with Star Wars.  Holiday specials being a glaring exception, of course.

Another TrashFest NW come and gone! This year saw a new set of faces as well as old haggardly ones and there were a few surprise guests in attendance. This year's event was to have been held in February but due to  a couple major boardgame conventions starting up then, I thought it was wiser to move it to January. I think this month will be chosen for future TFNWs.  My mind midway through the day was kind of foggy so details will be sketchy and I tried to get pictures of as many...

The latest wargame I've covered on Shut Up & Sit Down is the kickstarter-funded War Stories. I mention that it's a kickstarter project because it's got a lot of the things we've come to associate with kickstarter projects. While it's far from the worst offender, it still has that nagging sense of something not quite finished, not quite complete. And the FAQ document is beginning to build toward epic lengths. But while there's a fair number of disgruntled backers out there, I think War Stories deserves more patience than some seem prepared to give it. Because...

Pretty average, cliched film. Saw it opening night of an Irish film festival. Just not very many likeable characters. Favourite character wasn't in it enough, this happy-go-lucky overweight woman (Rosie?) who crushes out on Arya's biological father. She was great. Maisie Williams was also really strong, it's funny I didn't see any Arya Stark in her but I did keep thinking how much she looks like Catelyn Stark and how well those actresses were cast. Not good things to be thinking about when I'm watching an entirely different thing. Basic premise of the film...

If you're a hobby gamer, you can break down mass market games. Stick with me here, this isn't going in a "These Games of Ours" direction. The vast majority of it is stuff a hobby gamer isn't going to give two craps about. Maybe stuff you'd play with your kids, but anything "adult" would mean dumb party games and bad liscensed games to make a quick buck. Then there are those rare games like Heroscape or Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Star Wars Epic Duels that are totally accesible for the mass...

Hey Guys, I’m starting a new series based on games launched here in Brazil. I don’t want these to come across as lamentations about prices and the woes of gaming afar from EU/US, so I think these would be a good chance to revisit titles that represent a variety of periods from a perspective of whether you think they are good choices for someone to buy or publish and as remembrance of times long gone by. Also, I want to add that I am receiving help...

Looking back, 2014 was the year I basically quit playing new games. This was due to a couple of factor, not the least of which was a general sense of chaos in my gaming life between August and November, when most new titles come out. But at least some of it was conscious, because there were a lot of moments when I just decided to play something I already knew instead of whatever the hot game was. That makes me sound a little snooty, as if I'm really proud of the fact that I'm above the lowly activity of...

Discussion of Onward To Venus, Mythotopia, and the Warfighter expansions.  Also some game of the year discussion for 2013 and 2014.
