Vlog Ep. 133: Unboxing and Re-Boxing the Imperial Settlers Storage Box


Tonight's #BaduyPride episode was an unusual first - we had a brief unboxing of the new Imperial Settlers Storage Box, and then we left the stream on as we slotted the different cards into their new home. As geeks who at least own all retail expansions of the game, that was a fair bit of organizing. But yeah, it wasn't our most conversant video.

But it felt like a fun thing to do as a mid-week video on a day when we typically don't have live stream episodes because of RPG scheduling conflicts. We had fun doing it and we appreciate the few friends who stayed with us as we worked on the box.

Vlog Ep. 132: The One About Chicken


Tonight's #BaduyPride episode was just about chicken. I'm not even kidding - we spent over an hour talking about our favorite chicken dishes to eat, the chicken dishes that we can actually prepare, and even trying to remember our first memories of eating chicken. This was truly a very chicken-full episode.

I love crazy topics like this that seem deceptively simple at first. But over the course of the discussion, especially given the contributions of the live viewers based on the comments, and things just get crazy. And that's the Baduy Pride vlog experience in a nutshell. The topic is really just a starting point for the fun. We go where people take us and see how things develop from there.

This was a community-contributed topic originally shared by our friend, Mitch! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured in a future video.

Vlog Ep. 131: Counting the Days with Tzolk'in


Tonight's #BaduyPride was all about Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar, an intimidating worker placement game created by Simone Luciani and Daniele Tascini. The central feature of the game is a giant wheel that connects with 5 smaller wheels across the board that is more than just a gimmick. In fact, it's a central part of the overall gameplay and really does stress the impact of time passing.

While not the easiest game, it is definitely fun with that results in some very fulfilling gameplay experiences and we've yet to regret bringing the game out. Once you manage to wrap your head around the game's unique core mechanic of only placing or removing workers during a turn versus the movement of the wheels, then things start to fall into place after that.

Vlog Ep. 130: Applying for a Job


I didn't realize this #BaduyPride episode on getting a job would be so relevant for so many people, but I suppose it is that time of the year when a lot of people are considering expanding their career horizons. We certainly don't claim to be experts, but we've certainly had enough experience upon which we've based our insights and tips that were shared in this video.

And I will repeat the reminder that the opinions we expressed in this episode do not reflect or represent the official positions of our respective companies of employment (past and present).

Otherwise, I know we had a lot to say, and we hope that what advice we could provide does prove useful to folks who encounter the video. I didn't expect it to run as long as it did and I assume that it might get more views over time as more people share the video around.

Vlog 129: The One About Sandwiches


This episode of #BaduyPride was all about...sandwiches. Like the food. Really. But in our typical geeky way, we dove deep into the subject of what makes a sandwich a sandwich before we could take things a bit more casually. But really, try looking up the definition of a sandwich and prepare to go down the rabbit hole of curious considerations and possibilities. 

You can blame Tobie. His brain twists and turns in very unusual ways.

Beyond the existential questions related to when are sandwiches not sandwiches and all that, we spent a better part of the episode just talking about different types of sandwiches that we were honestly fond of across our personal histories. Episodes like this just illustrate how our conversations between us can go in totally strange directions without warning. And they make just make for good content for a vlog.
