Hey, guys. For those of you who don't know, Jackbox Games is a video game developer that specializes in trivia quiz-based games that can be played in a party setting. The games are broadcasted on a screen, and players use external devices to submit answers, draw pictures, and vote for their favorite answers and pictures in a variety of confounding contests.
About a week ago, we and a couple other RPGC members thought it'd be fun if we partook in these games together because we're all very funny people :). Rick broadcasted the game via Twitch, and we were able to battle to heart's delight over weird jokes and croquet dolls with "great boobs". In addition to filling a small part of the empty void in our hearts, the event was smashing success.
After trash talking each other on Discord, we came to the brilliant idea of making a league (Editor's note: I , Rick, came up with the idea) dedicated to compiling our wins and determining the funniest and most creative member of the Collective, according to a weird series of electronic challenges so exquisitely wrapped up in the third Jackbox Party Pack.
Now that our intro's out of the way, it should be mentioned that the League isn't for everyone, but we will, of course, try to make adjustments so everyone who wants to participate is accounted for. That said, here are a couple things you need to know before joining Rick's Jackbox League.
1. Games will occur on Saturdays, though this may change depending on your time zone. 3 PM PST is our best guess at the moment.
2. Games may contain inappropriate content. While we are mostly to blame for the shenanigans that may take place during these meetings, the League is not suited for the faint of heart or the refined.
3. Forum rules still apply here. While we are certainly less strict about certain things, the League is still representative of the forum and anything that crosses the line will not go unnoticed.

Layman instructions on how to play the game with us:
You go to the stream of the game to follow along. (link for stream is provided)
then, on your phone, tablet, or on another tab in your internet browser you go to Jackbox.tv where you pick out a name and are given the room code so you can actually play.
You don't have to download or purchase anything. It's all done through browsers. I personally recommend doing it on a PC or laptop, that way you can have two tabs open and follow along or stream on your PC/laptop and play on your phone. Some people try to do both on their phone and it can be done but it's a lesser experience.
So come join us, win some games, or lose all of them like Palacia.
Look forward to seeing you!
