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!

Brawling Brothers Boardgaming Podcast - Episode 12 - Light Games Sunday: Noir Black Box Review

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM :  9-22-15

Our lack of food stories is truly disturbing, but we spice things up with some epic impersonations.  We give a nod to our friends over at Print & Play Games  and discuss our lan party featuring many sweaty dudes stuffed into a small space.  Strangely our "What Did We Play" section is filled with light games ranging from Hanabi to Cosmic Encounter and we briefly discuss each of them.  Our Noir Black Box Review is sure to tickle the AD of listeners who like "puzzly games" (we just made that up). A very special message from the President of the United States (cough) with a ringing endorsement of Campaign Trail. And we wrap up the show with a feature segment that focuses on Experiences OUTSIDE of a game that impacts your long standing opinion on a game.

Episode Highlights include:

Nixon visits War Room Studio B - Dwarfy had an accident and we remembered to tell you about it - Print & Play Games - Dings A PLENTY! - Discussion on Light Game Sunday - Review of Noir: Black Box Edition - A polite request for iTunes Reviews - An epic promo for the sponsor of this episode, Campaign Trail - Events outside the game that effect our longstanding opinion of that game
