Played it a lot on Saturday night.

Quiplash was a hit. The drawing one was also really fun. We did the murder trivia one also and we had a lot of fun with that. Fibbage was fun also.

Nice, you got to try them all! Quiplash gets the most laughs for sure, but sometimes I want to do more trivia vs NSFW jokes.

It's been a while since we have played one of these. More of a winter game for us.

Not bad. I think we already have the first 3 and the 4th isn't worth it after playing at your house

Werd. 4th is on sale too, but is it worth it just for the one fun game? Maybe...

We tried YDKJ and Zeeple Dome over the weekend, since those are the only games we could play with 2.

-YDKJ has switched up the basic format of some things. Points are not based on how fast you answer. X points for getting it wrong, -X for getting it wrong OR NOT ANSWERING.
-Everyone plays Dis or Dat
-Jack Attack question 10 is also different. Everyone can score points on it, not just the first person to buzz in. There are multiple answers per prompt too.

Zeeple Dome was more of an arcade game than any Jackbox game I've played before. Your phone is a joystick and there is zero trivia or questions. It was alright, but if I wanted to play an arcade game I have tons of better ones to choose from on Steam that use real controllers.
