How does Sunday sound to you all?

But yeah, sorry, I have an arrangement that day, in regards to Friday x.x

That could work, provided that it conflicts with no one else's schedule.

There's no reason why we can't just have 2 game nights. I'm usually free Sunday afternoon.

Aye, I'll be home after a memorial cookout most likely.

All right, one game night tonight at, say, 8:30 Central, and another game night on Sunday at 8:00 Central. Both presumably Guns of Icarus unless anyone has another suggestion for the second night.

By the way, Azure, I don't think you've posted your Steam tag in the Codes thread.

Ah right, I'll hop right to it.

Last night's game night was a failure. Here's hoping the one tomorrow will be more successful.

Game night had. It didn't go as well as I had hoped for (I was hoping to end it with an online match against other players), but it didn't go terribly, either. Azure showed up and we got to practice against target dummies while waiting for Elby to show up, who did momentarily but then dropped out (I presume due to connection issues). Then Azure and I tried to have a match where we piloted our own AI-crewed ships against each other, but I lost my connection as soon as I tried to turn the wheel.

I guess my hunch was correct when I thought my laptop couldn't handle Guns of Icarus. Oh well. I'm still looking forward to the day when I do get to play for real.

Suggestions for next week?

How about Skullgirls?

I don't have the game myself, but I wouldn't mind a break anyway.

EDIT: FIBBAGE!

Why do you keep electing this when you know why you can't play this? FAS...

So, let's see the results.

One vote Skullgirls.
Two votes Fibbage. One vote against it.
One vote Apples to Apples.
One vote Superfight.

So. Four-way tie. Since I'm not going to bother trying to download a new mod for Tabletop Simulator this close to game night, I'm going to just get on Apples to Apples tonight at 8 PM Central. Those who want to join can join, those who would rather play Skullgirls or something...play that. Like I said, I wouldn't even mind taking a break. It's a laid-back night tonight.

But c'mon, B-Man, you're at least available on weekends, right...?

Image No I'm not actually! I got work to do every weekend! I've noticed a pattern, and when the jobs pile up big time, it is on the weekend. Not to mention, having to deal with graveyard shifts again (

And what is this "one vote against Fibbage" deal? I didn't vote that! I voted "you guys literally cannot play this without me"! As in, to say, you should put that game on the blacklist until someone else can get it going.

Let me reiterate what is required for a proper game form the JackBox Party Pack to work:

-1 copy of the game from somebody
-A streaming service (Twitch and UStream are the popular choices)
-A processor that won't fry up when you try to do this (an i5 model will do, but for the best quality it is recommended you get an i7)
-An Internet upload speed connection that won't lag every other second (I currently have 10Mbps, which is actually not too shabby for streaming)

If you can find someone besides me that can fill in all these requirements, then you can play it. I have nothing against Fibbage itself.

Image I do however have a big problem being put in the spotlight like this!

STOP IT!!!

Image For Arceus's sake, I never even intended this to be a weekly thing... Why are you pushing it like that? In case you have forgotten, I said "a Game Night!" That means singular! This was supposed to be an occasional thing, not an all the time thing!

Because, and I'm sorry if this might come as a surprise, but people have lives. People have jobs. People have family to worry about. People have things to do. We can't just dedicate a day every week to do this thing. We could, however, dedicate a day every once and a while with enough preparation, which believe it or not, was my initial intention of this thread! I never wanted it! Why was it being forced like this? Did you even ask? If you did, then I missed that post.

Let's be frank here, it's hard enough to get people to even post on this entire forum! Do they even see this thread? I have it on good authority that, actually, not that many that you contact with a Skype message saying "Hey, it's game night" do know about it. Leaving the name anonymous, one such person did ask me who the hell you even were when they got that message!

...If this whole thing seems so sudden, it's because, honestly, I've been waiting to say these words for a long time now. But I just was trying to be nice...but I think the Fibbage push has finally got me the nerve to finally call out this hijack of my thread for what it is: A failure! And then you try to guilt trip us when each week comes out with nothing! But as I said before, it was only a week. I was willing to give months when I tried to establish a Worms one, but never got responses.

I got the hint pretty quickly... How about you? Could a game night work? Absolutely, but not if you forcefully shove things down peoples throats.

Because that induces vomiting...



TL;DR Version: Don't make this weekly.

All right, all right. I get it.

Sorry for hijacking the thread. I just wanted to take some initiative in order to encourage some activity and interactivity between everyone, yourself especially. I didn't know you would take it this way.

The "one vote against Fibbage" thing was more of a joke than anything else. I guess I could have made it clearer.

Sorry for pushing you into the spotlight, guilt-tripping everyone, and contacting people for reminders while assuming they already knew of the idea.

I'll stop now.
