Jack Box

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

I'm writing this on mobile so for those of you who want to piggy back, please do.

There's this awesome collection of games known as the jack box party pack. As you may guess, these are a collection of party packs. (Wiki it. Seriously!)

What makes this different is that you play from your phone. This helps with humor filled anonymity and a platform to help with platforms like drawing.

The main game I'm thinking is Quiplash, which has a lot of parallels to cards against humanity or apples to apples.

I just realized we could have this work without all of us having to fly to see each other and lugging a playstation.

I can host a game and stream this over Skype to everyone so everyone sees the screen. This allows you a to see everything between the phone prompts.

So what do you need?
- a mobile device like a phone or tablet. This will make playing the game possible.
- another device that can reach the Internet. It should be able to have Skype. This would be for the streaming and seeing what I'm filming.

If this has enough interest, I might be able to do something tonight in maybe an hour or so.

Who's interested?

I don't know the sites but I'm definitely willing to stream wherever is best.

It's too late today. Maybe tomorrow night work when I get home around 730

Thanks for putting this in, Chevre. So I only have the Jack Box original party pack and Quiplash, but I went over a buddy's house the other week and played the third pack. Trivia Murder Party is so fucking awesome.

Here are my opinions of the games:

Drawful - Fun game, but I absolutely suck so I'm not huge on the game to be honest. -
Fibbage - Great game. It's about seeing who's a great liar, and I think I got it down pretty well.
Trivia Murder Party - AMAZING GAME. I wish I had it. I might in a couple of weeks. I asked my sisters to get me it for my birthday.
Bomb Corp. - I've never played it before. I only watched a little bit on Youtube and it doesn't look that fun but I haven't given it a fair chance.
Fakin' It - Really fun game, but we couldn't play it unless we're in person because it involves us raising our hands, pointing, etc.
Earwax - I haven't played this game and from watching it on Youtube, I don't quite understand it.
Guesspionage - Fun game. Highly recommended.
Tee K.O. - It's kind of like Drawful and slightly funner, kind of.
Bidiots - I've never played it but it seems to be as fun as a drawing game can be to me.
Lie Swatter - Moderately fun.
Quiplash - Extremely fun. Probably the first one I want to try.
You Don't Know Jack - It's kind of a hard trivia. I enjoy it, but most people I know don't want to do it.
Word Spud - Ehhhh...

Okay. Thanks for expanding:

I have:
Drawful - I'm not the biggest fan but if everyone else wants to play, I'll join in.
Fibbage
Lie Swatter
Quiplash
You Don't Know Jack
Word Spud

I think we should start out trying at least all except for Word Spud.

We're more than welcome to try the new games (especially Trivia Murder Party.) It's just that if we do that, I can't host.

So we had an event tonight. Not too huge, but a good one. We will do this again soon. I think it was all successful.

For those of you who are still confused, read up. Ask questions.
For those of you who played for the first time tonight, share your experiences.

I'll have much more awesome games soon.

today's not going to work for me. I'm working and then getting some needed sleep. Depending on how long I'm stuck with the in-laws tomorrow, I could possibly do it then.

No, not unless you want to host.
All you need is two internet connecting devices - one to watch via twitch and one to play with. (I tried this both with one computer and it didn't work. If you can find a way, awesome.)

Good news and bad news:

Good news: I got the new party pack including murder trivia and guesspionage.

Bad news: I probably won't be able to play today. We shall see.

Best thing to do is to have it on Steam and use the Steam local streaming thing to your friends.

I can do that since I bought all the old YDKJ's on Steam too, which is baller.

I don't have steam. :\

I'll see if maybe we can do it tomorrow. I'm not quite sure which time tomorrow, though.

What's your time zone?

BTW - Have you played with us yet?

It looks like there's enough interest, so I'll probably get the Jackbox Party Pack 2 unless there's a ton of demand for either of the other two (and speak up if you want it because playing with other people is literally the only reason I'm buying), since Hanasawa and KuroiXHF already own Jackbox Party Pack 3.

How is Saturday at around 9 PM ET? Probably not this Saturday given the holiday unless enough people are bored, but maybe every first Saturday of the month.

I'm cool with that.

Let's play spot the difference!

Hmm.... yes, yes I see!

The difference is the second poster is an asshole!

... oh, you mean there are names missing too? Shit, I missed those! I'm really bad at this. Wonder what happened to them?

... huh, they're all the same name too?

WELL THEN

I don't know what you're talking about, but I'd appreciate it if you ceased calling me an asshole.

Thank you.

She did. I read the original post and it didn't have LLD on Drawful 2 and under the Jackbox Party packs.

That was an extremely rude LLD.

Edit: I assume LLD's name is in the middle because Equinox was ordering them alphabetically.

I'm also curious if there was a game that happened recently. I haven't played Drawful since the first time I've hosted Jack Box and that was like a month ago, I think.
