So, we got around to actually playing the promo card game, "Disrupted Data Centers,", from Rubrik. In short, it's terrible. (Not unexpected, but still.) The production is great, the artwork is cute, the cards are thin but well-finished, the copy on them is cute. However, the gameplay ("draw from the deck until you get a Disrupted Data Center card, if you have a Rubrik Rescue card you play it to stay in the game, otherwise you're out") is beyond boring and pointless.

So, I got this "Disrupted Data Centers," card game as a freebie promotional item from a cloud data management / disaster recovery company called Rubrik. I'm kind of eager to give it a whirl tonight to see if the actual game is any good. The artwork looks cute, and of all the promotional items that I've received, it's one of the better ones! :)
Just got back from seeing Godzilla: King of the Monsters. I went with my partner Sarah. We both agreed that it was quite possibly the dumbest movie we've ever seen. I don't say "worst" because it wasn't actively malicious or harmful, as some movies are. It didn't embody dangerous ideas or forward harmful concepts. It was just a flurry of inconsistency and nonsense that occurred at every level, from the macro to the micro, from the textual to the aesthetic, every moment, all the time.
This is a SUPER FUN (legitimately) site for testing how utterly awful your sense of geography is. :)
