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 : 10/25/19

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com, Academy Games, Arcane Wonders and Van Ryder Games. Year in and year out our "Horror in the War Room" episodes are a huge favorite - both to us and the Brawlers in Brawling Land.  This year is no different, as we took the opportunity to produce a radio drama written by Evan Derrick of Van Ryder Games.  No Halloween episode would be complete without a visit from Dracul and Igor - but this year we take the visit to Transylvania! Our deep dive Abomination Board Game review is the center of our board game talk - we also discuss our recent plays of: Gates of Delirium, Horrified, What Came First and Slide Quest.  We briefly highlight a few of our favorite kickstarter projects, including the Fresco Mega Box, The Shores of Tripoli, Calico and Rome & Roll.
