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 in War Room Studios - Albuquerque, NM : 8/17/18

This episode brought to you by Inside Up Games, Tasty Minstrel Games & Meeple Realty. We are very late with this episode thanks to a rather vicious Ransomware attack on War Room Studios. Tune in for ALL the dirt on how we contracted this nasty bug, and laugh away at the misery that the Brothers have endured while trying to get our systems back up and running. Brandon reports back from Gen Con 2018 with news on all the exciting new games, including War Chest, Root, Everdell, Keyforge, Orbis, Forbidden Sky, Comanauts, Tidal Blades, Gen7 and many more. No episode of Brawling Brothers would be complete without food talk: We'll tell you a few of the very best places to eat in Indianapolis (including the legendary St. Elmo Steak House). We present our Pioneer Days Review - a dice drafting game from Tasty Minstrel Games that takes place along the perilous Oregon Trail.
