When in doubt, piss-based humor always sells.
Quiplash is a game like Cards Against Humanity: you get a weird prompt and you have to come up with a funny response, but instead of having funny cards, you just have your brain. Released by Jackbox Games, the original game supports 3-8 players and an audience of up to 10,000 who can’t write their own responses, but who all get to vote and laugh along nonetheless. The sequel, Quiplash 2, builds off the popularity of its predecessor, keeping the weird, occasionally lewd (and sometimes offensive) prompts while adding in new mechanics to innovate and improve the experience, including the option to upload custom question sets.
These games are great for connecting with friends, particularly during this time of social isolation. Only one person has to own the game, while everyone else logs in via their mobile device; you and your friends can simply pool your money for one copy of somewhat pricy Jackbox Party Pack 3 (currently on sale for $16.24). From there, you can just share your screen and go nuts! Bwog itself has partaken in some Quiplashing to kill time until we can finally see each other again on campus and we realizing that there was a niche market on which we could capitalize: Columbia-themed Quiplash questions! Below, we’ve compiled some of our best prompts for you to upload to your game and keep your Columbia friends entertained for at least a solid 15 minutes. And given the state of the world right now, isn’t that the most you can ask for?
If you do play with your friends—whether they’re from your hometown or campus—share your best answers with us in the comments or on our social media! And if you have ideas for your own prompts, take some time to share those too.
