Game Night 15 is coming and looking for contestants

By | August 7, 2019

Put it in your diaries, Bother’s Bar Game Night 15 is happening on Saturday 17th August (i.e. Fort Boyard‘s having a week off for rugby) 9-11:30pm-ish.

If you want a guaranteed shout at being a contestant on the Jackbox 6 Launch Game Night, you need to be a champion, and for that you need to be a contestant. And for that you need to mention your interest on this thread, or DM me on Twitter (DMs are preferred as replies might get forgotten about). We are always after potential new blood so if you’ve watched but not put yourself forward, now’s the time!

We’re going to attempt to use whizzy new broadcast software as Google Hangouts is closing soon anyway. On your part you will need to be on Discord (I’m BrigBother #9399 – it’ll be very useful if you’ve added me as a friend) – you will only need a microphone. It’ll be a bit ‘anything can happen’ as we get our heads round getting it all to work but fingers crossed it’ll be OK.

Otherwise I look forward to seeing Team Audience in the Youtube Chat on the night!

      I will have to withdrawal my application – still can’t get discord to work on my end. Good luck to all contestants!

        It might not matter, we might be doing it with Hangouts to save bandwidth. I will let people know tonight.

          Is Hangouts still working? I thought they had already put the brakes on it.

            My understanding is Hangouts is still A Thing (for the near future), but you can’t “do” Hangouts On Air any more. I’ll play around this evening and see what’s what.

            Discord, for me, is the perfect way to do it but there’s a worry about the amount of bandwidth it might use. The Audience will be seeing everything streamed through XSplit the panel only need to see the game streaming live really.

            Bit of a weird method, but couldn’t you use Twitch?

  2. Matt

    Why not? I’ve watched and played along with a few now, might be fun to get more involved. I’ll toss my name into the Goblet of Fire as well, if you don’t mind another one from the U.S.

        That I am. Tried to DM first, but apparently it requires a mutual follow. I can be found @Ardenfetz

    I’ll put my name in again, did rubbish last time but was a good laugh.

  4. Andrew, the Yank

    If it’s not too late, I actually should be free for once! And I’m a former champion! Champion of Champions, indeed!

      … actually crap that might end up being the night of a thing I was planning but had to reschedule. Argh. I’ll let you know as soon as I figure that out.

    Keep on applying guys and gals (especially on the off chance any gals are reading). I’m subscribed almost twice over. I will cast a mixture of reliable old hands and new people, of which I have many which I’m pleased about.

    I will EXCLUSIVELY reveal there will be a new scoring system in place. The Arbitrary Final remains arbitrary.

    Ay caramba! Humble Bundle are doing a Jackbox/YDKJ MEGALOAD where, for the princely sum of around 12 of your royal pounds, you can get Jackbox Party Pack 1, 2, 3 *AND* 4, as well as Fibbage XL, Drawful 2 *AND* nine (yes, neuve) of the original YDKJ games. *PLUS!* 50% off Party Pack 5.

    Only Steam, though. But still.

    Hey if you guys wanna add me in feel free.

    You know to look for me on twitter. @NatterIKH

    Right, I’m subscribed about twice over which is great news but does mean that some won’t get selected. If you’re in the panel, you have been Twittered. If you haven’t, you’re on a stand-by list and I hope to see you in Team Audience on Saturday.
