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 : 7/25/17

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com,  and Meeple Realty - Brandon starts the show in a sticky situation before describing the golden gilded canopy bed that Heavy Cardboard allowed him to sleep in during his stay at Heavy Cardboard Headquarters.  Brandon's trip to Denver involved many exciting moments including a stop at Hyperspace Arcade. Josh gives Brandon a Whisky & Scotch DATE NIGHT! We are excited to have Scott Sexton contributing written reviews to our website. "Transcend Time and Transform Your Hairline" is a great slogan that has to be used.... somewhere!  Sunwarrior Protein sponsors ALL guest appearances that Isaac Childres of Cephalofair Games makes.  Isaac answers some uncomfortable questions about Founders of Gloomhaven and agrees (at gunpoint, basically) to allow the Brawling Brothers to leave their mark on his newest game!  We wrap up Episode 55 with a hilarious discussion about "No-No's" around the board game table.
