VGF Game Night For Real

Post by I am nobody » Wed Nov 23, 2016 7:10 pm

We've tried to set this up a million times and never actually done it, so I'm trying a new strategy of just announcing a game and we'll figure it out from there.

I'm going to host Jackbox Party Pack 3 sometime preferably within the next two weeks. If you're not familiar with that series, they're (shockingly) packs of party games that only the host needs to own. Everyone plays through their phone or a browser using their website, jackbox.tv.

That out of the way, what times work for people? I am a social recluse and have nothing except work and the imminent holidays on my calendar, so any time on any day between 4-9pm EST on weekdays or stupidly early and 9pm on weekends works.

Place your votes for a time/date and I'll PM (probably) Twitch links for viewing to everyone playing when I'm setting it up. Most of the games have a cap between 4 and 8 players, although they also have room for up to 10,000 observers who can play different roles depending on the game.

I'll try for this, though mostly I'm only open on the weekend or Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I could probably do Monday and Wednesday evenings, though.

Sounds like a Monday evening so far. What time zone is that 6pm, S1x?

Since we're getting near the cap of most games anyway, how about setting it to Monday, December 5th at 8PM EST? Unless I misread something, that should fit what everyone posted so far.

If you screen share on Skype or something you can avoid the awkward delay Twitch will have

And all the time I'd have to spend figuring out how Twitch works. That and Steam's version of streaming are both options, and since both of those need basically 0 effort from me, I'm alright with whatever's easiest/best for everyone else.

If we're using Skype, I'm going to need contacts for everyone. PM me or post here, whichever is preferable. I'd send out a PM myself, but apparently you can only add 5 people to a conversation.

S1x is right that Twitch delay would be a major problem for most of the games, so Skype is the best option. Steam's version also tends to lag by 15 seconds or so.

My Skype ID is "valigarmander". My router has been giving me trouble the last few nights, but hopefully it won't be a problem today.

I assume we'll be doing more of this in the future though, if not everyone can make it.
