Vlog Ep. 145: The One About Sleeping


It's the seemingly random #BaduyPride episode suggestions that end up being the surprisingly more engaging topics and we spent over 90 minutes talking about SLEEPING. You could argue that it's because it's such a universally relatable topic and that would make sense. Or maybe people just don't have anything to do on a weeknight? Either way, it was a lot of fun and that's what matters, right?

But yes, we had a whole episode to talk about our different sleeping habits, our quirks, what works and what doesn't, and everything in between. But this isn't the episode about dreams - that deserves its own night and we'll cover that in full at a later date. 

For now, good night, everyone!

Vlog Ep. 144: Competitive Romance with Love Letter


Tonight's #BaduyPride had us revisiting one of the older games in our collection that remains among our favorites - Love Letter. We first mentioned this game in our episode about gateway games to introduce new people to the tabletop gaming hobby. This 2-4 player card game designed by Seiji Kanai has been reskinned into so many different versions by now, all based on the same amazing game engine.

The classic Love Letter is still a pretty solid experience and still has as much depth whether you're playing with first-time players or bluffing game veterans. And how it manages all this with so few characters and a fundamentally simple central game mechanic - it all comes together to create something far more than the sum of its part. I know I wax poetic over this game, but it's totally worth it.

Vlog Ep. 143: Spoilery WandaVision Talk


We had a lot of fun with our first spoiler-filled #BaduyPride episode despite how we typically avoid spoiling both old and new movies and TV shows. But we figured that crazy brilliance of WandaVision more than justified us talking about our theories and speculations freely without the burden of avoiding spoilers.

We hope everyone enjoyed the live stream as much as we did, and if people want to see more episodes like this, do let us know! We will, of course, clearly label if the episode is going to contain spoilers to help people continue to enjoy content at their own pace while still leaving others free to geek out with us and just throw out any ideas that may make sense. 

And YES - expect us to have another WandaVision episode once the first season fully wraps up, if only to see how many of our theories prove to be true come the end of the show.

Vlog Ep. 142: It's Good to be Bad with Villainous


We've wanted to feature this particular game on #BaduyPride for some time now, but we decided to wait for the recent expansion to arrive before we decided to tackle Disney Villainous, a card game designed Prospero Hall and published by Ravensburger. The game supports 2-6 players, but we feel it runs a lot better with 3, at most 4 players.

There's a lot of love that obviously went into this game ranging from the quality of the art to the quality of the card stock. And there's the greater brilliance of how each villain has its own path to victory and different mechanics that makes each deck works. On top of that, they created unique Fate decks that provide obstacles for the player villains by literally playing through the movie. And it's not easy being able to adapt a narrative into a game and have card mechanics support this fully.

Vlog Ep. 141: The One About Singapore


We pulled another topic from the request queue for this episode of #BaduyPride and ended up talking all about Singapore! It's the first country that Tobie and I have traveled to together and the one we've also visited the most because of the fact that I have family there. So for obvious reasons, the country is very near and dear to our heart.

This was also our first travel-related episode, which isn't the easiest topic to discuss while the country has remained under different forms of quarantine for almost a year now. But as is the nature of Baduy Pride, we focused on the better memories and talked about all the things that we love about Singapore in this rather lengthy episode.
