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 : 3/24/20

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com, Academy Games, Arcane Wonders and Van Ryder Games. Despite the disruption to our daily life, we've decided that Coronavirus will not interfere with the Brawling Brothers!  In this 123 Episode, we dive deep into Josh's gaming past to find out what makes him tick.  We discuss recent plays of Planet (Blue Orange), Volcanic Isle (Arcane Wonders), Ticket to Ride: London, Walking in Burano (AEG) and Disney Villainous (Prospero Hall).  We also have the pleasure of looking at a few current Kickstarters, including Overbattle: The All War, Lions of Lydia and Graphic Novel Adventures (Season 3). We wrap up the show with a brief SaltCon 2020 wrap up, focusing on the games we played at the convention, the people we spent time with and - of course - the best food we ate!
