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 : 8/25/20

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com.  Last year the Brawlers (our mixologists!) put together the finest blend of board games ever created.  It was dubbed the Brawlers Blend 2019 and became the standard for user-curated board game lists, all while boasting after-notes of vanilla and brown-sugar. Enter 2020 - the year of the BEAST. We knew we had to do something big - something even bigger than previous, so we scoured the countryside for those most capable of creating a delicious blend that could supplant the amazingly delicious work that we had previously created. Enter Mix Master Baker and Data-Lord Noel. Charged with creating something truly unique - something refreshing yet breathtaking. Mix Master Baker and Data-Lord Noel worked day and night to gather the information needed to create such a unprecedented experience, and we are here today to present the finest yet - The Brawlers Blend 2020! Join us in episode 132 to discover all of the Brawlers very favorite boardgames!

Recorded in War Room Studios - Albuquerque, NM : 8/11/20

This episode is brought to you by PowerMeeps.com and Van Ryder Games. Well folks, our power problems are fixed thanks to Brawlers Kevin, ULF, Tim Root, Sal and Baker (ALLL THE BAKERS!). We discuss our upcoming adventures in Camp Capstone and learn about a nasty injury that Josh mysteriously received. Thanks to recent plays by Brandon and Jordan,  THEN is a flashback to a true classic - Agricola!  The NOW segment is full of gaming goodness, including a new Crossroads title from Plaid Hat Games, Forgotten Waters. We wrap the show chatting with Travis Reynolds of Queen Games.  Travis schools us in the ways of Craft Beer before he tells us all about the upcoming Feld Collection that will be hitting Kickstarter in mid-August.
