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 : 8/23/16

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - An action packed episode begins with Brandon and a knife fight (no, really!).  Josh continues his (never-ending) Quest for the Beef Sandwich and recounts how awesome really bad service can be.  Brandon gives Josh a few valuable lessons in the way kickstarter works, and Josh discovers people can see what hes been backing (see what I did there??! - you will after you listen to this segment!). Ryan Bruns, Tupperware Champion and president of Mayday Games joins us for a little chat.  Ryan comes up with a Mayday Games sponsored giveaway on the fly that will certainly interest many of you!  Josh proclaims that all of our listeners are on treadmills hydrating with whiskey and Brandon dives deep into his GenCon 2016 recap. Oh yeah, and games - We talk about games too.

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 8-9-16

This episode brought to you by BoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - Josh clearly doesn't know how to speak... Is it "ATAT Walker" or "A T A T Walker" - He thinks he knows the answer to all things Star Wars... Thinks!  We discuss the War Room Studio Rebuild and query the audience for suggestions - Help make War Room Studio A GREAT!  It's time for a checkin on the Brawling Brothers Guild! Topics include: Regalos del Verano wrapup, Most disappointing game of 2016, Castles of Ron Burgundy & a mention by our friends at Polyhedron Collider.  We fire up our REVAMPED "Then" segment with a look at Killer from Steve Jackson Games and then jump into our first ever War Room Studio Redeaux with a glance back at Specter Ops.  Crokinole dominates our "Now" discussion (and our play time).  Our Spartacus Board Game Review is one that we've wanted to do for a long time - it isn't Cult of the New, but we've decided to do a few older games that we want to review!  We wrap up with discussion about the mysterious and delicious Black Maple Hill Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
