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 Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - Our guess was our fans could introduce our episodes better than we could, and we were right!  Our first ever fan introduction contest went out without a hitch and we're certain you all will enjoy it!  Robert Baratheon warns that Winter is coming and we verify that neither of the guys can spell hiatus.  We had a record month in September and its all because of YOU (yes... you). Josh does what Josh does best and talks about food.  We discover that Brandon has a special place in his heart for the puNkin spice.  Man Bear Pig TShirts are available for order, and we want you to wear our colors! ORDER NOW or Man Bear Pig will haunt your dreams. Our Essen 2016 preview is always a favorite segment and we take time to cover many of our most anticipated titles, including a handful of expansions that will make some of our favorite games even better!  We close up with episode with an outstanding interview with Ms. Stephanie Straw.  Stephanie provides an interesting prospective of the Boardgaming world from the eyes of a female, drinks REALLY expensive wine, and insists she should have done better during the Rapid Fire round.
