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 all know that Josh uses this show as a bit of a therapy session.... In Episode 21 he sits down on the couch and explains how he learned that car > Josh!  Once again we are proud to be sponsored by the fine folks over at BoardgameTables.com and encourage all of our listeners to check out their amazing tables!  Our Then-Now-Tomorrow segment starts off with Josh talking about Civilization building games (and not all of them are from the 1970's!) and we have a short and sweet NOW segment filled with Brandon whining about Pathfinder: Adventure Card Game.  A special guest, Jeff Siadek - designer of Battlestations 2nd Edition, drops by and helps us through our Tomorrow segment.  We gush about the talent of Ryan Laukat (Red Raven Games) and review his latest offering, Above and Below.  Our feature segment is one giant surprise and Josh weeps happily as we chat with Kevin Wilson - designer of games like Sid Meier's Civilization, Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Arkham Horror and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past.

In our 20th episode we celebrate LIFE!  Somehow we've managed not to kill each other. Yet.  Josh and his group takes a trip to Santa Fe, only to get cut off at the bar.  Their evening is capped off with Carne Adovada and a few more drinks - this time they are on fire!  Brandon is much less exciting, thanks to a recent diet.  He does have Skinny Pop popcorn though!  One of our listeners gets a ding, and Mobley calls back to show off his review skills.  We are sick of our format and make some much needed changes to ensure the show has our free-flowing feel!  We unveil a new segment called Past - Present - Future (Working Title), and desperately need you to help us name it!  Our feature game of the episode is Blood Rage from Cool Mini or Not, and we both have STRONG opinions on it.  We finish up with a fun section where we take 20 questions in 20 minutes - question #20 is a special treat, so stay tuned til the very end!
