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!

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com, Academy Games, Arcane Wonders and Van Ryder Games. Josh, Jordan and Brandon ventured to the FROZEN TUNDRA of Nebraska in the middle of January to attend ATBcon 2020!  This episode focuses on the fun that we had at ATBcon; including discussion of many of the boardgames we played, most of the incredible people we met and ALL of the excitement that a small convention can offer!  Thanks to many Brawlers, ULF was flown in from Sweden to attend the convention and we discuss just how great it was to finally meet ULF, the President of the #TeamJosh fanclub.  If you're interested in games - FEAR NOT! We cover plenty, including AuZtralia, Wavelength, Carson City, Memoir 44 (Operation: Overlord style) as well as a handful of other boardgames.
