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
8 PM EDT start
You can see how it works here:
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.
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.
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.
