Shut Up & Sit Down returns to GDC with a board game smorgasbord

Curated by the clever minds behind Shut Up & Sit Down, this exhibit will once again offer GDC attendees a calm oasis where you can relax and play some of the best tabletop games of 2015.

Passes for the Game Developers Conference are still available, and today we're excited to announce more details about the second annual ‘Shut Up & Sit Down’ GDC board game exhibit, which will be open to all GDC 2016 passholders (from Expo to All-Access) at various points during GDC week, March 14th-18th.

The exhibit will once again be curated by the clever minds behind the tabletop game enthusiast hub Shut Up & Sit Down, and will offer GDC 2016 attendees a calm oasis where you can relax and play some of the best tabletop games of 2015.

This year the plan is to fill the space with comfortable places to sit and play games like Vlaada Chvatil's Codenames, Hobby World's Spyfall, the medium-inhabiting game Mysterium and the bullet-flicking game Flick 'Em Up.

GDC attendees should also have the chance to check out the intriguingly-designed Pandemic Legacy, Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: Armada (pictured) and the fast-food strategy game Food Chain Magnate.

GDC 2016 itself will take place March 14-18th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information on GDC 2016, visit the show's official website, or subscribe to regular updates via FacebookTwitter, or RSS.

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech.
