How to Make Friends: A Back-to-School Guide from Jackbox Games

How to Make Friends: A Back-to-School Guide from Jackbox Games

If there’s anything game developers know, it’s how to get stuffed into a locker  make friends. Let us share some of our infinite wisdom with you before you embark on your new, studious journey.

Become party royalty in 3 budget-friendly steps:

  1. Have Several Fun Facts in Your Back Pocket.

People like LEARNING! That’s what you’re all at school for anyway, isn’t it? You have a small window of time to establish yourself as Lord of the Facts within the first week of school. Awkward silences?  Drop these bombshells from Fibbage, in The Jackbox Party Pack, on them:

“Did you know that Anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere in the world a duck is watching you?”

“In 2009, Eminem tweeted that he was really good at Donkey Kong. Imagine that!”

“There’s a small village in England called No Place. More like No THANKS!”

  1. Wear Intriguing T-Shirts.

Nothing is more eye-catching than a vivid and somewhat confusing t-shirt. If you’re struggling to approach others and make conversation, sometimes the right outfit can do all of the work for you.

We recommend our Drawful 2 Sexy Bikini Owl t-shirt. We know from experience that wearing this out in public will evoke a variety of emotions and reactions (mostly confused stares). It’s the t-shirt equivalent of having an invisible neon arrow above your head!

  1. Become an Internet Personality.

Who needs real friends when you can be friends with people on the Internet? Use a streaming service like Twitch or Youtube to stream yourself playing Jackbox Games with friends around the globe. Take advantage of our special streamer features to make sure they are only Internet friends of the highest caliber. (Ok, there will still be that one weird guy, but what are you gonna do?)

Making new friends doesn’t have to be hard when you have games like Fibbage, Quiplash, and Drawful. Our games are designed to help you engage with the people you’re with, learn new things about each other, and laugh about goofy stuff – no small talk needed. Download our games on your PC or console and play this video for your group to get a game started. No fuss friendship!

Oh? What do you know – several of our games are on sale now for PC/Mac through Humble! Pick up The Jackbox Party Pack 3 for only $12.00 or fan-favorite Quiplash for only $1.00 today!

Jackbox ❤️ Binjpipe

Jackbox ❤️ Binjpipe

At Jackbox, we’re constantly looking for ways to bring our games to more people in more places. We get tons of requests from fans asking us to bring our Party Packs to their platform of choice. Today, we’re proud to announce that we’re making one of the most frequent of those requests a reality. Jackbox is partnering with Binjpipe.

Just like Jackbox, Binjpipe is committed to innovative technology. We’ve got our phones-as-controllers. They’ve got all the amazing stuff they’ve got. Put them together and we hope to make magic. This year, we’ll be bringing a very special gaming experience to the Binjpipe platform. We’ll have more to announce soon, but we think our fans will really love it.

Follow us here and on Twitter and Facebook for more updates. And obviously, you can learn more about Binjpipe at binjpipe.com.

The Road to TwitchCon: California Streamin’

The Road to TwitchCon: California Streamin’

We’re getting so close to TwitchCon 2017 that we can practically feel the California sun on our faces and the smell of sweaty Jackbox track jackets at the end of a full day of streaming.

If you saw our broadcasts from last year, you’re probably expecting a bunch of fun guests to come by and play our new games. And guess what? You’re right! We have some really great people lined up to play The Jackbox Party Pack 4, including our pals UGRGaming, SinfullyRiddling, and Kate Stark! And that’s just the start. We’ll be announcing our full lineup next week on Twitter!

Also, if you’re going to be at TwitchCon, come park your butt in front of our stage and see the laughs first hand. If you’re at home, get in the audience and see if you can influence the games. But you MUST, MUST, MUST NOT forget to give us a Twitch follow if you want to be alerted when we go live. Otherwise, you’ll miss all the fun.

Sorry to cut this short, but we have to make a run to the store for sunscreen, revealing swimsuits, and body hair wax.

Veterans Day Charity Stream

Veterans Day Charity Stream

This Friday, November 11 is Veterans Day, and to honor these brave men and women we’ll be teaming up with the good folks at Iron Galaxy to do a really fun charity stream.

We’re raising money for Stack-Up, a charity that supports Veteran and Active Duty military through gaming. Watch us go head-to-head against Iron Galaxy in games like Red Faction, Rocket League, Mario Kart, and, if we’re getting our butt kicked, The Jackbox Party Pack 1-3.

Here are the details:

When: Friday, November 11 from 16:00 – 24:00 (CST)

Where: Our campaign page  

We hope you’ll tune in and donate to this great cause! At ease.
