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!

Finally we sit down for a late night chat with our buddies from Boards Alive Podcast.

Brandon is sick, hardware is on the fritz and we are rust as hell - but the show MUST GO ON!  We highlight our Christmas break plays and acquisitions.  We get another call from our aspiring Scottish intern - Mobley.  We have concerns about Mobley, primarily his power hungry nature... We have to figure out a way to knock him down a notch or 3!  Our new years resolution is to do more giveaways on the show, and we've partnered with our buddies at Floodgate Games to bring an awesome giveaway to our listeners - that starts now!   We visit with Paul Grogan from Gaming-Rules.com to learn more about teaching games and we pick his brain on Codenames, Vlaada Chvatil.  We follow this discussion up with our Codenames review and wrap up the show handing out our awards for "Game of the Year".
