Jackbox on friday!

Post by gkscotty » Tue Nov 12, 2019 11:57 pm

I've been trying to get games of Jackbox running lately, and would like to host a game this friday at about 8PM UK time! The games we've been having lately have been really fun, but it would always be nice to get more people, hence the advance notice. Hope to see you there!

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

That's really great to hear! This Friday will be unfeasible, as it's the day of my gig, but on the other days I'll try to spectate.

It's gonna be tricky for me. That's about 3 PM my time, and I don't even get off work until 3:30, in addition to a commute that's basically randomized. Hopefully you'll still be going by the time I get home.

Yeah there's not enough to even start here. People want to attend but it's not a good day. Maybe we'll get going in an hour or two when Stretch tunes in.

I'm not giving up! If tonight doesn't work out, look for a game or two after Creativity on Sunday! Come in if you want to a) be creative and then b) play.

Sunday works for me. :D

Saved this one, just for the second round, where we just had to name cartoon characters, before it changed the actual question on us...

My favourite part was when, just after we "banned Rarity" for being OP, the question we got on Bracketeering was "Name a turn-on".

The best part for me was in the final round of Survive the Internet, as Steve was starting to suggest we don't mention Rarity any more, I was picking the choice that determines the photo someone else gets to mock me with, and of course I pick the option that mentioned horses.

A few moments later as the round starts, I hear Steve cry out, "Oh come on, no!" and I knew he was the one that had gotten me to mess with :D

I tried to make it an Applejack joke but nobody went for it.

So, I was going to be there, but I've been wiped out with some sort of flu until yesterday. That was fun.

Same the next week?

Not sure. I kinda don't want to overdo it, but if there's demand sure why not
