JackBox Games Is Hosting Celebrity Game Night — And You Can Play Along (Video)
Join Jack Black, Olivia Wilde, and Jason Sudeikis for a night of fun.
Need to make plans for tonight that don’t involve completing your one-millionth puzzle or watching the same movie over and over again? Jackbox Games, the developer behind party games like Fibbage, is here to bring you something fresh.
On Friday, May 8 at exactly 9 p.m. Eastern, Jackbox Games is launching a special livestreamed episode of Celebrity Jackbox: Games & Giving that will be available across streaming platforms including Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, and Facebook Live. The episode will include appearances by the absolutely hilarious Jack Black, along with Olivia Wilde and her husband, Jason Sudeikis.
According to Jackbox Games, during the show, Black, Wilde, and Sudeikis, along with a few other special guests, will “take on one another in a number of Jackbox Games from their homes via video conference.”
Those tuning in live will get to watch as the celebrities attempt to complete the game and see who “is the best liar, who has the most artistic — or terrible — drawing skills, who can come up with the wittiest responses, and more.”
But, that’s not all. Those watching live will also have the chance to participate. All they need to do is enter the onscreen code and help influence the outcome of the game by voting for their favorite answers and awarding bonus points to their favorite celebrities.
And this night is really about more than just having a few belly laughs. The episode will be honoring Save the Children, a humanitarian organization aimed at helping to keep children happy, healthy, and educated, even in the time of coronavirus. JackBox Games will be donating $100,000 to the organization once the game is complete.
Want more? The company is putting on 10 total episodes just like this, with each episode honoring a new organization, with a total of $1,000,000 going to charity throughout its run. If you can’t watch tonight hat’s okay, as JackBox games still has episodes planned for Friday, May 15; Friday, May 22; Friday, May 29; and Friday, June 5. Get ready, play along, and help do a little good for the world along the way.
And if you love the games, you can always download them for yourself to play at home.
