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!

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 5-24-16

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty – Another leather couch session begins in War Room Studio B as the guys fill everyone in on their International Tabletop Day experience (better late than never!) and congratulate the party hosts on welcoming a new gamer into the world!  Brandon and Josh meet a (nother) local podcaster and decide that Albuqueque has become a hotbed for podcast creation. Josh covers the old (but not so crusty) Warrior Knights during his “THEN” segment, both guys get a chance to play a grail game and talk about it during “NOW” and discuss some smoking hot Kickstarter projects in “TOMORROW”.  The investigation continues into the strange transmission recieved during Episode 26 from “Mister M” – A few new details have been discovered and are shared with the listeners, though it’s clear that help will be needed to figure out what is going on.  Broom Service has monopolized the gaming nights of the Brawling Brothers for the last few weeks and they tell you what they think in their Broom Service review.  The guys finish up the episode by taking Questions from a Hat – Intern Lexi makes a special extended appearance and the Brawling Brothers officially envision the unofficial BrawlCon.

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - Its been awhile since we've checked in on The Quest For the Beef Sandwich (TM) and we feel like its time to remedy that!  Josh lets us in on what he describes as "The best beef sandwich in Albuquerque!".  Listen in as Brandon ignores the store while he watches the NFL Draft!  We discuss how the hit TV Show Blindspot has snuck boardgames into this season and mention the highlight of the show - Ms. Ashley Johnson.  We receive a VERY creepy transmission, straight to the digital voice line and we need your help trying to discover who the mysterious "Mr. M" is and what the heck he is talking about.  Vader lands planetside and helps us introduce our Star Wars Rebellion Review.  Find out what we both think about this exciting new Star Wars title.  We close up the show with our first annual (and according to Brandon, probably our last) Brawlers Maul.   What are you waiting for?!  LET'S DO IT!
