Brawling Brothers Boardgaming Podcast
Episode 5:  The Reign of Mr. Ed

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 6-9-15

It time again for another fun-filled BB episode of delight. In what shall soon be a time honored tradition, it’s always great to hear about beef sandwiches and Mr. Ed (no horses were harmed in the making of this podcast). Ding counters and war room pictures?? Ooooohhh, joy! We (finally) talk about a game we played this week, ‘Gravwell’. Our audience is interacting with us in a fun new way ~ calling our digital voice line; we love it and we ask for MORE! ‘The Ancient World’ grabs our attention and gets our play through and review. The podcast ends with the BB Feature segment featuring a fan favorite, “Favorite Games in the Following Categories”.
