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 have absolutely no clue what Pokemon Go is and our conversation proves that - We do, however know exactly what Overwatch is (and B LOVES it).  We get back to giving away games thanks to MVP Games.  Josh confesses that part 1 of his Supremacy discussion didn't go as planned & we propose a format revision to rectify this going forward.  Josh has to be taught what a McMansion is and refuses to discuss his Star Wars: Edge of the Empire campaign.  We both do our best impression of a Network Executive as talk through our The Networks Board Game Review and then we preview all the biggest and baddest titles upcoming at Gencon 2016.

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - A fun filled episode, RIDDLED with mistakes (Gotta catch em all!) - Our summer travels are quickly winding down and we attempt to shake the rust off.  As a welcome back gift, Josh plays a joke on Brandon and he needs new ear drums! Josh makes sure to check in on all embarrassing iTunes reviews, including one from j5ldh.  Can anyone tell us what a Luscious Delectable Helicopter is?!  Our 4th of July celebrations are proceeded by Brandon's 95th birthday!  We check in on our BGG Guild and - What's this?!? - the heathens (brawlers?) are calling for a  Solo Josh episode??? Then is crusty and musty in a SUPREME way, and begins with a supreme theft!  We delicately explore the phallic tendencies of Mare Nostrum & consider writing a jingle for our friends at Asmodee.  In questions from a hat we discuss our favorite gaming accessories, compare video games to board games, name our favorite 6 player games and proudly proclaim our favorite podcasts (board gaming and otherwise).  As with every 10th episode, we wrap up with a bleep filled outtake roll from the previous 10 shows - If you don't laugh, we owe you a churro!
