Tonight, here, 9:30pm UK
Hurrah! Join us live on Youtube tonight from 9:30pm to 11pm as we explore the best of what the Jackbox Party Pack 2 (and some of JPP1) can offer. There will be a group of us broadcasting live from a Google Hangout but because of the nature of the games YOU will be able to have some input as well!
Affect our games! All you need to do is keep our livestream up and then on your second screen of choice go to www.jackbox.tv, put in the room code on the screen, add a name et voila. Please be aware that because of the lag you will need to follow prompts on your phone and watch the results on the screen. As a member of the audience you will get the chance to vote on answers, awarding points to the person who came up with the answer. Play along, you might make the difference!
What will we be playing? On the menu tonight in no particular order: Lie Swatter (true/false quiz, audience participation), Drawful (trying to draw unusual things), Fibbage 2 (fill-in-the-blank lying, audience participation), Quiplash XL (being witty to order, audience participation), Bidiot (strategy and perception) and Bomb Corp (speed logic and shouting). We won’t be able to play Earwax because we can’t stream sound in the Hangout regrettably (*).
I’ve got a decent amount joining me in the Hangout this evening but there may yet be room for more, especially if you’re female (as the panel is looking 100% male so far) – if you’ve got a microphone and a Google account hit me up on here or on Twitter and we’ll see what we can do to make it happen.
If you’re watching along you should also tweet us on #bbgn. Please be prepared for adult themes and language. If this goes well we will probably do it again in the future.
(*) Playing this with me screen-sharing on Google Hangouts is probably the most lo-tech way of doing this. For future reference is there a better way? I want lots of people on board live but watchable by anyone who wants to watch.
