Vlog Ep. 37: Dune by Gale Force Nine

For our Saturday night #BaduyPride live stream vlog, we talked about Gale Force Nine's beautiful update of the 1979 Dune board game. This monster of a game features some very crazy faction-specific powers that players can leverage to try to take control of Arrakis and its highly precious spice. With the new Dune movie just around the corner, we figured it was as good a time as any to talk about this game and why we appreciate all the love that went into reviving it after so many years.

We also decided to run this episode after Dire Wolf Digital announced their new Dune Imperium board game featuring art inspired by the new movie. This is one of the best things about a new movie regardless of how good or bad it ends up being - it inspires all sorts of supplementary creations in different media to ride the wave of publicity that comes with big movies like this. So we can't really complain - a new movie means we get new games, new books, and who knows what else will come out in the months to come?

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
