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 from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 11/08/16

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty - Fall is in the air and we discuss Joshs' charm!  We thank everyone who participated in our Halloween Story competition and lament the affects that the time change has on our bodies.  Josh reveals that he loves vegetarian calzones, but only if they'll add bacon and other meat to them.  We have a LONG overdue visit from (potential) Intern Mobley, and discuss our excitement in regards to the upcoming BGGcon!  The Brawling Brothers Lowball Glasses are here and we are taking orders for BGGcon delivery (orders for shipment will start shortly after BGGcon).  We announce the first annual Brawling Brothers Gift Exchange and encourage you to participate.  Josh introduces his new "War Room Redeaux" intro and we reflect on games we played last year at this time (Mysterium, The Grizzled and Catacombs) and Josh reveals he is FLICK challenged. He needs your help - can anyone recommend a video to him on how to flick more effectively?!  We cover a SLEW of games in our NOW segment, including Knock Down Barns, Mechs vs Minions and Saloon Tycoon.  We dig in with our Haspelknecht review, and then wrap things up with an Academy Games Interview.  Uwe and Guter Eikert explain to us their philosophy for development, discuss how great Putin looks and answer the very LARGE question about the Mare Nostrum map design.
