Brawling Brothers Board Game Podcast – Episode 18 : Shaken Not Stirred

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 1-12-15

Brandon is sick, hardware is on the fritz and we are rust as hell – but the show MUST GO ON!  We highlight our Christmas break plays and acquisitions.  We get another call from our aspiring Scottish intern – Mobley.  We have concerns about Mobley, primarily his power hungry nature… We have to figure out a way to knock him down a notch or 3!  Our new years resolution is to do more giveaways on the show, and we’ve partnered with our buddies at Floodgate Games to bring an awesome giveaway to our listeners – that starts now!   We visit with Paul Grogan from to learn more about teaching games and we pick his brain on Codenames, Vlaada Chvatil.  We follow this discussion up with our Codenames review and wrap up the show handing out our awards for “Game of the Year”.
