BGB Podcast #91 – SHUX 2019 Live with Quintin Smith

One stage, four podcasters, and hundreds of horses.

Shut Up & Sit Down’s very own Quintin Smith joins us live on stage at SHUX 2019! We play a rousing game of Hundreds of Horses, discuss some games from the convention, and lay out the unspoken truths of board games – opinions about the hobby we vehemently hold, even if everyone else is too afraid to say it. Before we speak truth to power, we talk about Deep Blue, Curios, Obscurio, and Vast: The Mysterious Manor.
