FILLED – Online “Open” Virtual Game Night for Adults 8/3/20 6:30–8:30 PM EDT

August 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm, Free

This whole quarantine thing has really messed up AANE Pizza & Game Nights everywhere.  We can’t bring you pizza, but we can bring you games and camaraderie.

Nick Gallop, AANE P&G maestro and members of the AANE staff will emcee AANE Virtual Game Night on August 3.

WHEN:  Monday, August 3, 6:30 – 8:30 PM EDT

WHO: This event is open to any post-high-school adult on the spectrum anywhere. 

COST:  FREE, but advance registration is required and we only have space for 22 players!

Registration is at capacity. This event is full.

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 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)

Virtual Game night will be hosted on the Zoom platform. 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.

  • 6:30-6:45 PM EDT All players meet for an orientation.

Registration closes on August 3 noon EDT or when 22 people have registered.

Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email from AANE that will include the link to connect to the Zoom meeting.

WHAT WILL YOU NEED TO PARTICIPATE

To connect to Zoom, you will need an internet connection, and 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.)

In order to play the games, we suggest that you use Zoom in 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.
