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 : 12/10/19

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com, Academy Games and Van Ryder Games. Year and year out, BGGCon is one of our favorite boardgame conventions.... We look forward to it so very much, even calling it our "Home Con".  We had some concerns going into BGGcon 2019 because of a new downtown venue, but a little bit of alcohol and a whole bunch of gaming have washed our worries away.  BGGcon 2019 was absolutely outstanding and we spend this entire episode telling you WHY!  Despite our 25+ games played, we've narrowed down our discussion to our 12 favorites - tune in and hear all about: Marco Polo 2, Ragusa, Discworld: Ankh-Morpork, Smartphone Inc, Deep Blue, Skull King, Babylonia, Paris: New Eden, Bora Bora, Bruxelles 1897, Egizia: Shifting Sands and Crystal Palace.
