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 : 12/30/17

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardGameTables.com, Arcane WondersMeeple Realty.  In our 3rd annual holiday episode we bring you a comprehensive (SPOILER FREE) review and comparison of all three major Escape Room Board Game lines (Exit, Unlock & Deckscape).  We reflect on the games we were playing last year - both turned out to be COMPLETE monsters in our hobby, and then talk about our current plays including: Civilization New Dawn and Nusfjord.  Per Christmas tradition we pen a Brawling Brothers Christmas song that is worthy of a Grammy, and then wrap up the holiday festivities with a jovial bout of Questions from the hat with Cat (and Noel).  Tune in as we discuss Star Wars, Game Weight, RPG Classes, Treats for Santa and a few other embarrassing topics.  Laughs guaranteed!
