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 PowerToTheMeeple.com, Thunderworks Games and Unforgiven: The Lincoln Assassination Trial. Josh and Brandon discuss excitement 20 years in the making, the Baldurs Gate III Early Access! You can't count back 20 years without tripping over Tribune (2007) and Josh is delighted to have Brandon discuss his plays! Majority of our "big game plays" over the last month have involved Tekhenu, and we are excited to talk about it. We plugged in some filler games, around our Tekhenu plays, and can wait to talk about Point Salad, Lanterns and Silver and Gold! Our TOMORROW segment is jam packed - we'll leave some of it as a surprise, but want to mention our  Cartographers Heroes Review as well as our kickstarter preview of Unforgiven: The Lincoln Assassination Trial. We close out the show with an intimate chat with Tim Virnig, Pitchman extraordinaire for Thunderworks Games.
