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, Arcane Wonders and Meeple Realty - We PROMISE that your Iphone won't self destruct while listening to this episode!  We discuss "SEXY" in board games, play some AWESOME listener voice mails and Brandon does his best Pocahontas as he sings "Just around the river bend".... Sort of. We discuss the lack of spinners in boardgames and check in on Josh's inability to math (1+2+1+1).  We review the completely asymmetric game "Vast: The Crystal Caverns" from Leder Games, and it's a unique one!  We finish up with part two of our interview with Jamie of The Secret Cabal and Rodney of Watch it Played.  Don't miss the part where Rodney gets the best of Josh, and laugh out loud at some of our outrageous questions during Rapid Fire!
