The main goal of the game is to try and be the funniest person in the group. Use your wittiest one-liners to try and out-funny your friends. The game is played by sharing the game’s screen on the PC so that everyone can see the game, and respond to it. The game requires all the players to be able to view the projected screen, as this is where the answers will appear.

Follow this guide to play Quiplash through a Zoom call.

  • Launch the Quiplash game on your PC.
  • Start a Zoom meeting and invite your friends to join (through their PC, no phone, so that they can see the game’s screen clearly). Once they have joined, don’t forget to lock the Zoom meeting for privacy!
  • Click the ‘Share screen’ button at the bottom of the screen.
  • In the pop-up window, choose the Quiplash game window to share. Don’t forget to tick the ‘Share computer sound’ box in the lower-left corner of the screen. This way everyone on the call can now see and hear everything that is happening in the game.
  • In the game window, click ‘Play game’.  The game will now generate a four-letter code.
  • All players must go to Jackbox.tv using the web browsers on their phones and input the code along with their names. P.S. The funnier the name the better. Tap ‘Play’ to join the game.
  • The game will show players as they join in along with their names. Once all the players have joined, the host must hit ‘Everybodys in’ on their mobile device and the game begins.

Rules of the game | play Quiplash on Zoom

There are no rules! Well, kinda.

  • All players get a question on their mobile devices and must type in the funniest or wittiest answer they can think of and hit ‘Submit’ their answer.
  • Once all the players have answered, the game displays the question along with the answers inputted anonymously on the PC screen.
  • The players then get to vote on their mobile device which answer is the one they think is funniest.
  • Players who do not answer can still vote.
  • The game ends after three rounds.

Note: Quiplash does have a Family-Friendly Filter that can be enabled if you are playing with a younger crowd.  The filter makes sure you only get appropriate questions to answer.

How do you know who wins? | play Quiplash on Zoom

Points are based on the percentage of players who like your answers. After each round, when the votes are tallied up, the player with the most votes wins that round and is assigned a percentage. If at the end of the third round you have the highest percentage, you win!

If you manage to steal all the votes from the group in any round, you score a Quiplash!

Quiplash is a game that can be played over and over because its premise depends on the players’ inventive answers. So as long as you can keep thinking up new answers, you can keep replaying the game. Jackbox Games has recently released Quiplash 2 with even more fun questions to answer.
