Ohh yeah Buska, would be good to have you aboard.
I've actually invited little Mikey Stirz Boyz so we'll probably focus on the drawing games.

That's a shame big man. You're more than welcome to drop into the discord channel, even if you can only commit to spectating a round.
Concept: City commissioned art project has been left unfinished; Jackbox players are drafted in to work on the art by committee.
How it works:
Two players start off with the same unfinished drawing - which will literally just be one line.
Each player has about 15 seconds to add to that foundation. Everyone else can see both drawings being made in real time, with the option to spam emojis about what they think is going on. After the time is up, everyone votes for their favourite (more votes for an artist = more points, modified by the emojis). Then two more players are handed the pen, and have to add to the winning drawing. This process repeats about 4 times.
There are two rounds like this and then a final round which involves everyone drawing at the same time, voting for the best
, then everyone working off of that. This repeats about 4 times, after which everyone writes, and votes for, a name for the final piece (I can't remember if the naming is part of the earlier rounds or not).
Compared to most Jackbox games, it's a long one, but with a good crowd of people an absolute blast. There's not much down time, and there's something fascinating about watching the chaos unfold live.
