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 and Van Ryder Games.  In episode 125 of The Brawling Brothers, Josh and Brandon discuss how they are coping with social distancing and answer a new favorite question: Favorite Food, Favorite Show and Favorite Game during quarantine. Josh flashes back to the day of yesteryear and discusses how Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul Kar stacks up against the original Fireball Island. Alubari, Sagrada Digital and ULTIMATE Tic-Tac-Toe make up majority of the board game discussion in this episode, but if you only catch a single segment you shouldn't miss the SPOILER FREE King's Dilemma Review!  Kickstarter continues to be hot, despite the global crisis - the Bros highlight Lords of Vegas 10th Anniversary Edition, Canvas and Clinic: COVID19 Edition!  Episode 125 is wrapped up with a intimate interview with Evan Derrick of Van Ryder Games, who tells us all about their newest kickstarter project, Final Girl.

In our second episode since "social distancing" has began, we check in on each other and discuss ways that we are still able to play boardgames, including a quick dive into some "digital boardgames" such as Terraforming Mars (Steam) and Slay the Spire (Steam).  Josh regales us with his experiences with Monopoly, and offers up a headline for the ages "Touched by Monopoly". We also present our Isle of Cats Review and discuss the game at length with designer Frank West of City of Games, talk about our most recent play of Pulsar 2849 and take a look at the Night of the Mummy (on Kickstarter NOW!).
