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!

This episode is brought to you by BoardgameTables.com - Josh and Brandon reveal some serious electrical problems in the Cold War Bunker that is War Room Studio B.  Not to worry though, this doesn't affect our "High Qualtiy of Standards"!  There is an ongoing discussion about Poutine - Puteen - Putin and we agree to disagree.  In this episode of changes Josh loses 20 pounds (OF BEARD WEIGHT) and changes his drink of choice (gasp!).  By popular demand, intern Lexi gives a few words of wisdom.  We reveal our new segment name - only to reveal there is more than meets the eye!  Axis and Allies dominates Josh's segment, and Brandon is excited to report in on Carson City and Bloody Inn.  Our review this week is a tad out of the ordinary for us - a tactical miniatures game from our buddies over at Plaid Hat Games - Tail Feathers! We wrap up the show with special guest Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games. Jamey discusses Viticulture, Euphoria, Scythe, Kickstarter and even teases us with the promise of an upcoming legacy game! Man Bear Pig? Chess Boxing? WE HAVE IT ALL!

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 3-8-16

This episode is brought to you by BoardgameTables.com - Does anyone outside of New Mexico know what tapas are??! We discover the wonders of poutine, including the proper pronunciation.  Somehow a shirtless Putin comes into the conversation - our apologies. Brandon's epic journey of miniature painting has begun and it seems to be one train wreck after another. We are recognized by YouTube reviewer Cloak and Meeple with a prestigious (and tangible!) seal of approval. We announce a poll to (finally) name our Then, Now, Tomorrow - Past, Present, Future - Man, Bear, Pig - WHATEVER - segment.  Josh covers Axis & Allies: and Brandon chimes in on Merchants and Marauders.  We cover some exciting new Kickstarters and a Pirate threatens you. No, really.  Our Kemet + Ta-Seti is enthusiastic and long winded - both sides of this conversation are passionate!  We close the show up with a segment where we draw listener questions from the hat.  Its amazing some of the stuff thats in that hat!
