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!

Is anyone sick of hearing about Brandon’s love for Pandemic yet? Well if you are, then this episode ain’t for you.. Even though it’s just a short portion of time, we just can’t get away from mentioning Pandemic!

In this episode, we chat for a bit about beef, Mr. Ed and the crash that almost lost Episode 3. We get to flex our improve skills with some impromptu Desert Island themed fun. Brandon just finds enough time to rub it in Josh’s face that Origins is going to be AWESOME! After the jealousy is too much for Josh to handle, the guys have a chat with some old guy that shuffles his way in to War Room weekly. We then discuss our take on Stockpile from Nauvoo Games. And we close this all off with a discussion (pretty friendly) about how to learn and teach board game rules.

How have we not killed each other yet?!

We are spending more and more time together and we’re getting more comfortable with one another. As we become more comfortable, we also seem to find additional ways to annoy each other. Regardless, we still show a good amount of respect for our differences as we sit down to discuss our lovely dinner date; our Kickstarter addictions; we get to Dead of Winter featuring Jonathan Gilmour; and we close with a heated discussion regarding Alpha Gamers and how to combat the issue… (if you feel that it’s an issue in your gaming session)
