  1. The World Next Door and Elite Dangerous are free from Epic Games this week!
  2. This weekend features social manipulation games!
  3. How well can you manipulate your peers in a gaming environment while staying friendly and adorable on the outside? This weekend I'll be hosting some Jackbox games that require you to be either good at lying, detecting lies, being lucky. On rotation are Survive The Internet, Fibbage 3, Split The Room, and maybe even a round of Push The Button to close out the night. Think you've got what it takes? Sign up here or show up early in Discord to lock in your spot!
  4. I am working to organize a competitive Jackbox Party Pack tournament that is tentatively planned for early January 2021. Please quickly respond to this poll and help me get some data so that I am able to have it appeal to as many of you as possible!
  5. I suppose I'm finally gonna make myself do this lol

  9. hosted by Suix on Discord
  10. Could you elaborate on this? Do you want the emote added to Discord in general, as well as the generic pool of emojis? Or do you want it on our server only?
  11. New free-to-play games & fun times for everyone!
  12. We had a blast playing some of the new games last week, especially with Quiplash 3! This weekend I'll be starting with the games we haven't tried yet; Blather Round and Talking Points. You can count on the event ending with Quiplash 3 again, so come hang out with the coolest crew, and you might even get:
  13. Life update: my therapist for the last 8 years is retiring and I have to find a new one which is kind of meh, but otherwise doing alright mentally right now. Going to a neurologist next month to figure out my migraines & likely broken neurotransmitters. Still always available for anyone to talk to any time 💜 Also if anyone is interested I have created spreadsheets for myself to track self-care/good habits as well as my chronic migraines and can share blank copies on Google Drive.
  14. So I'm just copying over some things in Discord because I'm actually really interested in this discussion long-term and feel like there's some critical thinking to be done. Every time I see anyone online being paid to promote a VPN by mentioning region-locked content I really have to wonder at the legality of it all. What if you use it to watch Netflix shows that are exclusive to other countries? That's ok, I guess... What if you use it to circumnavigate some virtual brick walls made by the US government because the content infringes copyrights or something? That one makes me a lot more uncomfortable. Using a VPN for better online security sounds like a pretty great thing as opposed to some overpriced anti-malware, but my whole perspective gets twisted negatively when I see the company actually sponsor people to say "hey you can use it to see things that the government here doesn't want you to see, like tik-tok!". This seems like something that should be obviously illegal or punishable, but it's not like I think all VPNs should be disabled because the one using it to see blocked content is the one legally responsible for their actions. But when they are plastering the potential ability to break the law all over their ads and sponsorships I can't help but wonder where that falls on the moral spectrum. I've never used a VPN (mostly due to current living budget) so my perspective is very limited here. I'd love to hear from other people, whether you've used one or not, and see what you think about this topic. Should it be illegal to use a VPN to watch region-locked content? Should it be illegal to use a VPN to watch content that violates your countries' copyright laws? Should a VPN company be held liable for making it seem like it's okay to do if it isn't? Is it even possible to know if someone is viewing "blocked content" on a device if they're using a VPN? Do VPNs create an interception point between the user and organizations like the NSA?
  15. Her canon lore is that her stage and microphone are powered by the hextech crystal that contains many of the souls of Skarner's race and she can hear their voices from the crystal and says "lol I'm gonna sing a bop while using the energy from these long tortured souls"
  16. Featuring the debut of Jackbox Pack 7!
  17. Yes, that's right! This weekend will be the premier of the JackBox Party Pack 7 in MadCast! Come check out the newest line of games with everyone, or just watch the rest of us bumbling about and dropping spicy memes.

  18. When I was in high school I tried dabbling in photography, but it wasn't something that really satisfied my creative itch the same way that other mediums do. I love seeing your work though Taco!
