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 : 2/26/19

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com and Van Ryder Games. We announce upcoming livestreams (join us at brawlingbrothers.com/live) and we need you to join us!  A listener sends a heartfelt package and things get heavy for a moment in War Room Studios. We have NEW Lowball Glasses and if you don't want to miss your chance to acquire one, you'd better order now! We flash back to games we were playing this week last year, including Godfather and 7th Continent - talk about the games we are playing NOW, including Forum Trajanum, The Big Dig and Railroad Ink.  Then we hang out with Evan Derrick of Van Ryder Games and play an exciting (and embarrassing) game, talk about the upcoming Season 2 Graphic Novels and then look at Blowback from The Enigma Emporium. We wrap up the episode with our much anticipated Architects of the West Kingdom from Renegade Games.
