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!

We start out talking about... Wait for it... Wait for it.... FOOD!  What an amazing trip to local sandwich shop, Bocadillos.  We had a familiar voice call in on the guest line - We can't seem to get rid of him. We offer a quick nod to the boys at Boards Alive for allowing us to create a very fun segment and featuring it in their new variety show, BoardsAlive Monster Mash-Up.  We actually take the time to talk about BOARDGAMES in our "What did we play" segment, where we discuss; Baseball Highlights 2045, Agents of Smersh, Fief: France 1429, Kemet.  We take a very close look at the hugely popular Specter Ops from Plaid Hat Games.  And we wrap up the episode with one of our most excitement feature segments ever: Boardgame Theme Songs - Walk out, Victory and Loss music.
