    Olympic Event 7: Lie Swatter (Jackbox Party Pack)

    Olympic Event 7: Lie Swatter (Jackbox Party Pack)

    On July 18 we will play the 7th MU Olympic event: Lie Swatter.

    There will be two windows to play in (you may only play in one of the two windows):

    2 PM EDT start
    and
    8 PM EDT start


    You can see how it works here:



    Cliffs:
    In Lie Swatter, players are given a fact and must quickly decide if it’s True or a Lie. Get it wrong and the bug gets squashed! But get it right…and the bug also gets squashed, but you get points. Up to 100 players can drop in and out at any time, even after the game has already started.

    Each game takes around 10 minutes, and we'll be playing it 3 times, so expect to spend about half an hour on this, once we get going.

    Requirements:
    Players play using their phones, tablets, or even computers as controllers. It's most standard to use your phone, but I believe you can also use your browser? Someone can maybe confirm or deny this.

    You also need to install Zoom. You don't need a webcam or a mic, you just need to be in the call so you can see my shared screen.

    EDIT: I will find out if maybe we can just use Discord? (update: we will be using Discord I think)

    However, if you really don't want to install Zoom, I will also live stream it and you can follow along there. BUT it is important to note that this means you will be playing with a delay, which will make it difficult for you to get bonus points for being the fastest to answer a question.

    Scoring system:
    We will play 3 rounds.

    After each game the screen will show the top 20 leaderboard.

    I will simply add up people's points across the 3 rounds, and then we'll have our overall leaderboard for Lie Swatter.

    You MUST enter your MU username as your player name.

    I guess streaming it on the MU discord isn't a possibility?

    Also, what's the timezone for the times in the poll?

    also, lie swatter generally isn’t considered to be a good jackbox game

    if you want to run it because of the 100 player count, don’t

    ik it’s way more convenient to have everyone in a single big game, but if you want a lie detection game, just do fibbage

    you could have multiple hosts to do a ton of smaller games

    Please answer honestly, as I'm trying to find the legitimate best compromise that will allow both Euros and Americans to play, preferably.

    Ah, I didn't know there was a limit, but apparently it's 50.

    also, by “EST” do you mean the current eastern time or the actual timezone “EST”?

    Problem with smaller games is how to do a ranking between the games, as the players get different questions.

    And it's way more coordination and takes more time than I'd like for this to take.

    It's not the best Jackbox game, I agree, but it's fine.

    I've live streamed other Jackbox games before and I will do so again in the future - just for fun. But for the purposes of this, I don't have the time to host anything more extensive, and if I were to recruit others to do it I fear it would take too long without having a perfect solution for how to rank all the players (other than doing a knockout tournament, which will definitely take time and will be difficult to coordinate when you have both Euros and Americans).

    I don't know the difference between these.

    In 10 minutes it is 2 PM EST as far as I know. So whatever that one is.

    If there are too many for a discord call, it's probably best to just stream it - that many people are probably going to have a tendency to make zoom unusable anyways.

  32. ISO #32
    I'm very much willing to play but by definition I do not use Zoom. I try not to install dedicated spyware on my computer, thank you very much.

    I don't like using Zoom and only install it on my computer when I'm forced to use it, and then immediately remove it, so I'd also prefer it to be streamed in a way that I don't give up an advantage for not using Zoom if possible!

    If Zoom is the best way though then I'm fine installing it for the event.

    I don’t. Only top 20 scores will be tallied.

    You can vote as many options as you like, in case you didn't realize

    It deleted my post, sigh.

    Trying again



    @moon @jumpluff @Poison I hope you can do an 8 PM EDT start, 9 is gonna be too late for me.

    WE WILL PLAY 2 DIFFERENT TIMES TOMORROW!

    The Euro game will start at 2 PM EDT. I.e. that's 20.00 Danish time.

    The US game will start at 8 PM EDT.

    It's not perfect, but it means we can play it via Discord, that most people's scores will show (as it shows the top 20), and that we can accommodate different time zones.

    So all you need to do is just be in the games channel on Discord tomorrow for the time that you want to play. Shouldn't take more than 30-40 minutes.

    You may only play in one of the two windows, and we will be playing 3 games each window. I'll add scores from the 3 games in each of the 2 windows and we get our final score that way.
