Guides for Playing Remotely

Only one person needs the game. I personally stream off of Discord with my friends for free. You can do it off zoom or google hangouts. The process is pretty simple. You can find out how to do it here. [jackboxgames.com]

If you're going the Discord (Free) route, once you've installed the app on your computer. (Have your game up and ready and streaming, if they use Discord through a web browser it will lag and be blurry so its better if they have the app.)
Use this guide to send to your friends:
Step 1 - Download Discord app to your computer: https://discordapp.com/download
Step 2 - Create a new account and verify by your email.
Step 3 - Click on the + sign on the left which is "Add a Server" then choose "Join a Server"
Step 4 - Copy and Paste <insert your server invite here> Then hit "Join."
Step 5 - Double click on <insert your discord name here> that says "LIVE" in the General Voice Channel and you should be able to see the stream.
Step 6 - Open up a new browser window and go to Jackbox.tv and enter the room code of the game that we're playing and that's it! No phones. Lower the volume in-game so you can actually hear your friends.

If you're going the paid Zoom account method, just let your friends/family know that if they download the free Zoom account, they won't be disconnected after 40 minutes as long as you're hosting and your account is a paid Zoom account.
Zoom Update: I bit the bullet and got a zoom subscription because this pandemic isn't going away anytime soon. It's is more fun to see your friend's expressions so I recommend zoom long term especially if you play D&D or Tabletop Simulator. Cheers.

Stay safe everybody!

Jackbox Party Pack 3 is considered the best pack.

I personally like 3 because it has Trivia Murder Party and Quiplash. You can find more comparisons here: https://whatnerd.com/every-jackbo...ck-ranked/

abhinav2300 it's not a "steam" sale but if you go to https://jackboxgames.com/ you buy the code off there then go to your "Library" in steam, on the very bottom there's "add a game" and you pop in the code there.

So if you're going the Discord route, this is what I send to people to set up. Let them know that it is less laggy if they download the discord app and install it. If they use the browser, they're going to have a bad time.

(Have your game up and ready and streaming then send below to your friends)

Step 1 - Download Discord Client: https://discordapp.com/download
Step 2 - Create a new account and verify by your email.
Step 3 - Click on the + sign on the left which is "Add a Server" then choose "Join a Server"
Step 4 - Copy and Paste <insert your server invite here> Then hit "Join."
Step 5 - Double click on <insert your discord name here> that says "LIVE" in the General Voice Channel and you should be able to see the stream.
Step 6 - Open up a new browser window and go to Jackbox.tv and enter the room code of the game that we're playing and that's it! No phones.

Thanks for the directions! When you say app, this implies a computer correct? Or would some folks be able to play through a tablet/phone?

I just finished a game where my friend played with his phone dual screen lol. Yes people can play off their tablet/phone. A strong connection helps. Big Grin

I think Zoom is the best way to do it tbh, but only if the person streaming the game has a paid account otherwise it stops after 40 minutes. If you have a paid Zoom account, the people who have free Zoom accounts can join your Zoom without any time limit. The free route is to use Discord which is a voice/chat gaming app.
