FILLED – Online “Open” Virtual Game Night for Adults, 5/8/23, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM ET
May 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm, Free
DESCRIPTION: Join us for camaraderie and fun! We will be playing three games:
- Quiplash from Jackbox Games – This game is a cross between Mad Libs and Apples to Apples. Players fill in the blank in a phrase with the craziest answer and then the group votes to choose the best response. (8 players max)
- Fibbage from Jackbox Games – Bluff your way to victory playing Fibbage. Fill in the blank with your own creative, convincing answer. Everyone tests their skill by voting on the real answer. (8 players max)
- Remote Insensitivity – An online version of Cards Against Humanity where making horrible statements isn’t only allowed it helps you win the game. (6 players max)
Each game will be played in a separate Zoom breakout room monitored by an AANE staff member. We will have two game sessions where all 3 games will be played.

At 6:45 PM players will be moved to the breakout room for Session A. At 7:45 PM players will be moved to the breakout room for Session B.
WHAT WILL YOU NEED TO PARTICIPATE: To connect to Zoom, you will need an internet connection, a PC or tablet with video capabilities, a microphone, and a webcam. (You can use a mobile phone, but it won’t be the best experience.)

- Here’s how to test the audio and microphone with Zoom before joining your meeting
- Here are some video tutorials on how to use Zoom
In order to play the games, we suggest that you use Zoom on a split-screen so that you can play the game on one screen and use the second screen to see everybody in your breakout room. Or you can use a phone or a tablet to play the game and a PC for Zoom. You will also need to be able to get email during this event. That’s how we will send you the URL so you can join a specific game. Questions? Contact Olive Gallop (firstname.lastname@example.org)
