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!

Underwater Cities was one of the biggest surprises to launch at Essen 2018 (US version to be distributed by Rio Grande Games in Q1 2019).  Many have likened it to Terraforming Mars, one of the Brawling Brothers very favorite games, so we couldn't wait to get this to the table and find out what all the fuss was about!  Tune in to Episode 95 to find out what Josh and Brandon think about Underwater Cities from Vladimir Suchy and Delicious Games in our Deep Dive Underwater Cities Review!
