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 : 10/24/18

This episode brought to you by Power to the Meeple, Arcane Wonders & Meeple Realty. Year in and Year out the "Horror in the War Room" is one of our very favorite episodes to plan and produce and our 4th annual installment is no different.  Tune in and hear our reenactment listener Jaci Bell's story "A Proper End - An Eldritch Tale".  No Halloween special would be complete with Dracul and Igor - so we sent Cat on location to interview them.  We flash back to previous Halloween episodes and discuss Fury of Dracula, Mythos Tales & Gates of Loyang (can anyone say Uwe-Tober?!?). Then check in on the titles that are currently being played, including Eldritch Horror, Church Hill and Pulsar 2849.  Our TOMORROW segment is filled with hot Kickstarters - make sure you check out Street Masters: Aftershock and Tidal Blades now on Kickstarter.

This episode brought to you by Inside Up Games, Arcane Wonders & Meeple Realty. It's balloon fiesta time here in Albuquerque and while it creates quite the mess on our roads, it creates some of the most beautiful scenes you've ever seen! Josh lost a fight with the FABELED Bush Tree and Brandon is too old to play sand volleyball! We feature Dragon Boats of the Four Seas in our kickstarter segment and wrap up the episode with a ROUSING interview with Robb & Christina Rouse of Blue Peg Pink Peg. While we've hosted events and traveled with Blue Peg Pink Peg, we've never had the pleasure of officially interviewing them - until now! Tune in and find out why Blue Peg Pink Peg might be the greatest podcast that isn't in your podcast queue - OR, reaffirm that Blue Peg Pink Peg is one of the most entertaining acts in all of boardgaming! #BrawlingPegs
