I live in my own time zone. And I'll be out of town at the end of the month. I might be able to join in at times, but not regularly.

Agreed.

It is a great time, if I didn't have a family...

Well... You have never experienced true terror until you know there is a large spider (Maybe like 3-5 inches across) somewhere in your room, and said spider has already made an attempt to greet you by climbing onto your foot.

Now, it's just a huntsman, and I know they're generally quite friendly actually. They'll avoid biting unless they have absolutely no other option, and a lot of people can pick them up with bare hands. But having something the size of your palm climb onto my foot completely unexpected? No thanks.

I had a Brazilian pink toe get out and I woke up to her 'snuggling' my face, I guess 'cus it was warm. The fear was brief but intense. So I get what you mean.

It's because the spiders that get into your house in urban areas are actually just terrifying dorks. For example, I now feel better because I just scared the sh*t out of that spider. It was walking along the wall over my door, so I thought I'd go open the door so that it could maybe leave. When I got close it seemed to notice me for the first time and kind of danced sideways and away from me in what looked like a perfect spider version of a person tripping over their own legs after getting a fright.

In your local time.

That's pretty early in US times. 8am here on the East Coast. 5am on the West Coast. But considering the spread of people, that may be the best we can do. Hard to predict for myself, especially given the absolute mess my sleep has been this week.

Whoops, forgot to answer you Wears, but yeah I know it's super early in the US but at the same time it's closing in on midnight for those on the east coast of Australia sadly. I promise I did check beforehand and used this site to compare, but looking back I can see it's very hidden in the wall of text I wrote :P

@Rodgeir I hope you can ditch the family (or have them join), even for a brief moment :P

Oh and here's the link to my twitch channel which I'm sure will be useful while playing the jackbox party packs :lol:

Double post of awesome! Or maybe not, but I've started streaming for those that want to come join my not so sociable self that is filled with the weirdness of a conversation with a 30 sec delay :P

I think a couple of random people found us, but still going :p

If you have any preferences on the game type to play you can sneak in a suggestion. I'll post when we finish :)

It was great fun playing jackbox with you! I'm sad there seemed to be some issues for the Americans with a big delay or lag for them.

I would like a new rule though.. Dusk can't join anymore! He won too much! :lol:

I'll likely do this again and maybe try to change the times every now and again depending on what suits. I'll maybe learn to be a better host in the future (likely not) and fill the void with lovely Danish accent :P

You had first place at some point!
But why complain about you can't lie when you are the most liked! :lol:

The best part was random people joined the game and instantly felt just how much M0rt he sucks!

The randomers shit-talking Mort was definitely the best part! Besides me winning, of course :P

Agreed, it was fun for the part I was present for. I don't think I've ever been so angry at an inanimate object as I was when my laptop started freaking out and crashing. Stupid technology ruining my social interactions.

So this is a little bit (a lot) late, but then again I only got (probably) two leavers for this plan on the last day... So while a three player session could probably work, I'm gonna try and fill the ranks a bit if I can still.

So the short of it is I will be running a 5th edition game through tabletop simulator this evening, starting somewhere around 8 pm GMT+1. Knowing how to play is not an actual requirement, and I've a couple sheets prepared for use if needed, although making your own is also okay. So if you have discord, tabletop simulator and you're available at the time, you can join if interested. Assuming others haven't snagged away the spot already. :P

Reason for not needing to know how 5th edition works is that for most people there this will be their first encounter with 5th edition, or even just a real D&D game in general, so I've designed this first session to be a bit of a "tutorial dungeon"- Hopefully not being boring while going through some of the aspects of the game, and show off that it's really not that complicated once you start understanding how things work. The session in particular is probably going to be a once-off, but I might end up inviting whoever joins for the next one depending on how things pan out.

So assuming you're interested, just notify me and I'll let things happen. Looking for one, maybe two players to bolster the ranks. :)
