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 brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - We begin this episode by paying thanks to the huge cast of contributors that submitted content for our 1 year anniversary episode.  The episode was a huge hit and we want to thank each of you for taking the time to contribute.  A collective #DING for everyone who was involved!  One of our listeners has started a chair fund to buy Brandon a new chair, since he continues to whine about his current accommodations!  Josh reflects on HeroQuest in THEN, and Brandon brings HeroQuest Classic to his attention.  In NOW we confess that there is a shiny copy of Star Wars Rebellion sitting on the game table, touch base on Josh D&D campaign, and discuss how Takenoko is a great game to introduce children to.  Our TOMORROW segment features two great new kickstarters that are worth your attention; Cavern Tavern and Expedition: The Roleplaying Cardgame.  We review Clash of Cultures, and civilization building game by Christian Marcussen.  We close out the episode talking our Top 10 Games of ALL TIME with Jamie Keagy of The Secret Cabal - and put him through the ringer in our Rapid Fire Round!

Somehow, some way we have survived a FULL YEAR together.  This episode is filled with warm wishes from our listeners, and other folks in boardgame media such as:  Rodney Smith of Watch it Played, Heavy Cardboard, Blue Peg Pink Peg, Tantrum House, Gaming Rules!, Boards Alive, Low Player Count and more!  Listen in as Brandon gives Josh nothing but disappointment as a 1 year anniversary gift.  The guys discuss their health woes and saving nuns from burning buses.  Man bear pig just won't go away, but the show is now complete with awesome TNT bumper music!  Its a presidential cage match in our THEN segment and Brandon insists that Josh needs training wheels during NOW.  Our tomorrow segment is short and sweet, highlighting some of our favorite projects currently on Kickstarter.  We spend an entire segment reflecting on some of our favorite moments from the past year, before we sit down for a preposterous conversation with Mr. Jamie Keagy of The Secret Cabal
