Jackbox 5 is out!

By | October 17, 2018

Jackbox 5 is officially out on all major digital platforms which means Bother’s Bar’s Game Night 12: Champignon of Champignons will be LIVE this Saturday night from 9pm, for you to play along with all the new games. You Don’t Know Jack, Split the Room, Mad Verse City, Patently Stupid and Zeeple Dome will get a play in some capacity, and if there’s time maybe some Quiplash and Fibbage.

But have you ever wondered just who is the most successful Game Night panellist of all time is? Well wonder no longer as I semi-distractedly totted up some things last night (including awarding points and victories from early episodes when there wasn’t really a format), and THIS is what I’ve found.

Absolutely fascinating. People in red are the panellists for this weekend. As we can see our very own anti-Alan Davies Matt Clemson is top of the pile with three absolute victories, one of which was quite lucky because the first one was just awarded to him despite, in hindsight and with the current scoring system, actually tying with Andrew Warren in Game Night 1 (so they’ve both been awarded moral victories). And there was one episodes were only four games were played, where typically 6-7 will get played before the arbitrary final, but still. Incredible Average Points per Appearance from Chris Field and David Bodycombe who haven’t quite been so successful in coverting to PROPER WINS. Also of note: Alex Richards has been docked an ABSOLUTE VICTORY as the tape shows the final of GN11 didn’t go quite as planned.

If YOU want to find yourself on the scoreboard, Festive Game Night happens in the middle of December. But for now, join us Saturday!

      Oh I know what’s happened, I credited it to Andrew when I was going though them. And I thought it was difficult enough telling you apart at the time… I will update and correct when I get home this evening.

    Just had a bit of a play around, might be changing the end a little bit, not sure how well Zeeple Dome transfers to competitive play. We’ll see.

    I’m just saying, there needs to be a Champion of Champion of Champions at some point. I gotta duke it out with whichever impostor claims my title after this weekend.

    Meanwhile, All Together Now is randomly doing very well in Australia, with Ronan Keating From Boyzone in the Ginger Spice From The Spice Girls role (and, I guess, Ronan Keating The Eurovision Host in the Lindsay Dracass The Eurovision Contestant role). The actual format has been tweaked slightly – the top two in each heat sing off for the only guaranteed place in the finale, and each judge votes for one loser per heat to get a wildcard entry, with the act who gets the most votes over all seven heats winning it (which seems like a reward for being the second-best performer in a bad heat?) – but it’s hard to tell yet if it’s a deliberate improvement on the original format or if it’s a change to justify having more episodes to fill Seven’s local content quotas.

    Could you please change the table width of that table to 100% rather than 476 as it doesn’t display properly on mobile devices, it exceeds the main body and ends up with a grey line on the right hand side everywhere other than the table? If I knew how to do a screenshot on my device I’d publish it.
