So i could play this on my iPad with a PS4 controller? And it would work with you guys on PC? I could be down for that. How would we all voice chat, is there a discord channel or something?

Last question - what time do you start?

Start time for these is usually 9PM (or there abouts) and yeah we use discord to chat - I think this is the link to the GR discord: https://discord.gg/UfWsENf (can't check as discord is blocked at work)

Anyone know how big the download for this is on Steam? Hoping it's not too large as I won't be able to get hold of it until this evening so hopefully it will download before we start! :lol:

Usually 9pm but I'll maybe be about a little before then (8.30) if anyone wants some warm up games/explanation of the rules.

Just to confirm:

It is free on iOS and Android. It is cross play with PC.
It's on Steam for £4.
Voice chat via the discord ( https://discord.gg/bkW7WP ) will be preferable, but if not you can listen to us chatting via PEDZ's stream and use the text chat function to throw around your wild accustaions during the emergency meetings.

The room code will change during the session as you have to make a new room for a new map/number of imposters. I'll post the first one here but then will put them in the discord chat (or read them out).

We'll also have to have some house rules - If you're dead no more speaking! And no conveying of information outside of emergency meetings.

But I'll explain errythang later. Been playing a LOT of this with my mates recently and it's very good fun.

Can't guarantee the PS4 controller will work, but the touchscreen controls were fine for me (on phone). I'll be on about 8.30 but the bulk of peeps will be around at 9. And yep - discord voice chat!

I've not played this or watched it being streamed so I'm kind of going in blind here - but if this is about a co-operative activity where there are secretly one or more counter-agents working against the group is it not going to be a bit of a problem if people are streaming it?

If Pedz is a bad guy then surely anyone watching his stream will see him doing bad things?

No idea but it seems to be massive on Twitch so it can't be a massive issue?

Thanks, I looked at a youtube vid and the controls looked really straight forward. As long as i can run discord in the background with the game (and the adio does not clash) i should be ok on my phone. I have no idea how to join a session etc in discord so might pop up near the time with questions.

I wondered this also! I wont be able to watch a twitch stream at the same time due to limited number of screens available in the room i was going to play. Hopefully not essential if using voice chat anyway....

I assume you do not stream it specifically to the group you are playing with, just to the public at large.

Maybe, I wouldn't know. I assume pwople still watch even if they are playing, same with push the button on Jackbox Part Pack 6.

Yeah the people playing the game shouldn't be watching Pedz' stream.

Requires a little honesty from the people playing but then so do most board games etc!

Is there a limit to the number of people who can join? Seems like we've got more than 6 people down for this already.

10 is the max per room - I think 7+ is a good number.

We'll experiment with settings (e.g. Number of imposters) as we go through the night.

I was a bit worried about a low turnout so I've roped in a mate (who's a grcade lurker (zonaverdi) and Introduced this game to me) to join us too.

We'll give it a bash and if people cheat then we'll have to think or some way to sort it. How is it so popular on twitch if the streamer has to hide his screen?

I’ll come on at 8:30 for some practice. Never used stream to connect online play, is it easy enough?

Streamers are likely playing with randoms. In the case of a group of friends playing, the friends don't look at the stream.

Apologies. We're not doing anything with the stream. Pedz just streams our online sessions, so I suggested that if you don't want to use voice chat (discord) you can listen to Pedz' stream's audio to hear what we're saying.

I'll post the initial room code here, but it changes throughout the night and you can only join outside of games. Probably best to join the discord for text to keep up.

I promise this will be nowhere near as complicated as it sounds.

That's just it, though. No-one hides their screen of what's happening. You just have to trust that no-one within the game (or members of chat) jump across to another stream to give information away. Streamers usually ignore chat while within a game, anyway, so that's not a problem. And if anyone does seem like they're cheating by watching someone else's stream, they'd probably get kicked from the game.

6 hours later - mass brawl breaks out due to the confusion.
