I am setting up a gaming night for December 21st, playing the Jackbox Party games. I own Packs 1-4, and all you need is a phone, tablet, or computer with internet access.
Come to the Mumble Room at December 21, 2019 9:00 PMTZ, where more instructions will await you!
There will also be a test game night 2019-12-16T23:00:00Z to work out any bugs.
^ to be clear you don’t have to buy it.
I’ll be there.
Sounds fun! How long will you be playing?
I was planning until 11PM EST, provided we don’t wrap up sooner.
This sounds fun! I’ll make a conscious effort to be there, time difference is a bit of a headache out here.
So there are a few games within the Party Packs. My friends and I usually play Quiplash, Fibbage, Survive the Internet, and sometimes play Monster Seeking Monster.
A short description of these games:
Quiplash: 1-vs-1 who has the better quip in response to a question.
- Example “What would Michael name his hair?” → “Michael Jr.” or “Bill” (these two answers are provided by two players, and the rest of the players vote)
Fibbage: all players answer a lie as a response to a fill-in-the-blank question, and then have to select the non-lie to get the most points.
- Example “Ryan (AKA DasGeek) is a huge fan of ______.” → “NVIDIA”, “Intel”, Michael’s hair", “Noah’s mispronunciation of ‘Ko-Fi’”, “AMD” (AMD is obviously the truth, but everything else was put in by players)
Survive the Internet: all players enter a sentence, and then twist that sentence for fun. This one is hard to explain and takes at least a turn to really understand.
- Example, for the Social Media turn of the mini game Noah puts “I think Michael’s hair has reached a new level of awesomeness” in response to Zeb’s phrase of “It’s Gross :(”
Monster Seeking Monster: All players chat with each other as monsters, trying to get another player to date them.
- I have no idea how to write out an example for this… we’d just have to play it
This sounds awesome! The example you gave for me was hilarious!
So are you gonna be there?
I won btw… just wanted everyone to know I won the game night.
Does anyone know who won the game night?
Oh right it was me… I almost forgot that I won the game night.
Thanks @RiderExMachina for setting it up
It was a lot of fun! Congrats on the win
