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 : 12/18/18

This episode is brought to you by Power to the Meeple. One of our most anticipated deep dives of the year is our Coimbra Review from Eggertspiele. Coimbra was designed by Flaminia Brasini (Lorenzo il Magnifico) and Virginio Gigli (Grand Austria Hotel) and launched in limited quantities at Origins Game Fair 2018. In Coimbra, it's the 16th century and Portugal is thriving under its leading role during the Age of Discovery. Nestled in the heart of Portugal, the city of Coimbra serves as a cultural center of the country. As the head of one of Coimbra's oldest houses, you seek to earn prestige by deepening relationships with nearby monasteries or funding expeditions of the era. To reach this goal, you must vie for the favors of the city's most influential citizens, even if you must offer a bit of coin or some protective detail. Tune in to our much anticipated Coimbra Review to find out what Josh, Brandon, and special guest Noel think about this beautiful Euro!
