Brawling Brothers Boardgaming Podcast

The Brawling Brothers Boardgaming Podcast is a biweekly podcast that focuses on board games, card games and RPGs. The original Brawlers (Josh and Brandon) are 2 friends who like very different types of games. The show focuses on these differing preferences and (hopeless) attempts to sway each other's opinion. Each show includes light, friendly banter, a game review (in print), a combative segment called "Brawling and Boardgaming", a check in on BGG's "Hotness" and a brief discussion of a topic that has importance to us... Well, one of us, at least. While the "Brawling and Boardgaming" can get a bit heated at times, Josh and Brandon play games for the same reason: SOCIAL INTERACTION. The Brawlers love of meeting new people, playing games with old friends and interact with gamers all around the world is the simple reason that Brawling Brothers was founded. Join us as we attempt to spread our influence throughout the gaming community, encouraging people to form gaming groups, organize events, and evaluate just how great (OR NOT) those old games that Josh loves really are. Let's hope we can agree to disagree before a major fight breaks out!

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com, Arcane Wonders and Meeple Realty - Josh and Brandon face off in a Hey Off™ after showing concern for Josh's wet, sweaty head. We announce that we have to do REALLY stupid things on cameras to pay off a bet that we made with our listeners (tutu's, whipped cream pies, and DOIN' A THING).  Brandon continues his epic efforts to wax poetic during discussion about current kickstarters Flow of History, Tradewars: Homeworld and Path of Light & Shadow.  The long awaited Mansions of Madness review is lengthy and covers every aspect of this HUGE title - check out what we think. We give away TONS of stuff in the conclusion of our Big Bad Celebration Giveaway from Episode 50 - Tune in to hear who wins STACKS of #boardgames. Then the show is wrapped up with a revealing interview with Tony Gullotti, Director of Sales for Arcane Wonders.

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - We have absolutely no clue what Pokemon Go is and our conversation proves that - We do, however know exactly what Overwatch is (and B LOVES it).  We get back to giving away games thanks to MVP Games.  Josh confesses that part 1 of his Supremacy discussion didn't go as planned & we propose a format revision to rectify this going forward.  Josh has to be taught what a McMansion is and refuses to discuss his Star Wars: Edge of the Empire campaign.  We both do our best impression of a Network Executive as talk through our The Networks Board Game Review and then we preview all the biggest and baddest titles upcoming at Gencon 2016.

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - A fun filled episode, RIDDLED with mistakes (Gotta catch em all!) - Our summer travels are quickly winding down and we attempt to shake the rust off.  As a welcome back gift, Josh plays a joke on Brandon and he needs new ear drums! Josh makes sure to check in on all embarrassing iTunes reviews, including one from j5ldh.  Can anyone tell us what a Luscious Delectable Helicopter is?!  Our 4th of July celebrations are proceeded by Brandon's 95th birthday!  We check in on our BGG Guild and - What's this?!? - the heathens (brawlers?) are calling for a  Solo Josh episode??? Then is crusty and musty in a SUPREME way, and begins with a supreme theft!  We delicately explore the phallic tendencies of Mare Nostrum & consider writing a jingle for our friends at Asmodee.  In questions from a hat we discuss our favorite gaming accessories, compare video games to board games, name our favorite 6 player games and proudly proclaim our favorite podcasts (board gaming and otherwise).  As with every 10th episode, we wrap up with a bleep filled outtake roll from the previous 10 shows - If you don't laugh, we owe you a churro!

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - Josh unveils his revolutionary idea for "3d ENRICHING EXPERIENCES" followed by his confessions about having no clue how to use modern technology.  We bust into some excellent discussion involving karaoke, followed closely by a great cheap champagne story (what a pairing!).  Brandon falls victim to his love for Churros and falls off the diet bandwagon for a day.  HeavyCon, a small convention experience by Heavy Cardboard, dominates majority of our discussion.  Brandon talks about his experience with heavy games at the convention, including Arkwright by Capstone Games, Kanban from Stronghold Games and Trickerion (published by APE Games). The show wraps up with a lengthy Jon Gilmour interview.  Listen in and hear about the Dead of Winter development process, get an inside scoop on the upcoming expansion; Dead of Winter: Long Night and hear about his newest project Heroes and Tricks (currently on Kickstarter)

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty – Another leather couch session begins in War Room Studio B as the guys fill everyone in on their International Tabletop Day experience (better late than never!) and congratulate the party hosts on welcoming a new gamer into the world!  Brandon and Josh meet a (nother) local podcaster and decide that Albuqueque has become a hotbed for podcast creation. Josh covers the old (but not so crusty) Warrior Knights during his “THEN” segment, both guys get a chance to play a grail game and talk about it during “NOW” and discuss some smoking hot Kickstarter projects in “TOMORROW”.  The investigation continues into the strange transmission recieved during Episode 26 from “Mister M” – A few new details have been discovered and are shared with the listeners, though it’s clear that help will be needed to figure out what is going on.  Broom Service has monopolized the gaming nights of the Brawling Brothers for the last few weeks and they tell you what they think in their Broom Service review.  The guys finish up the episode by taking Questions from a Hat – Intern Lexi makes a special extended appearance and the Brawling Brothers officially envision the unofficial BrawlCon.
