Drawful 2, Quiplash 2 and Quiplash 3 have a “Make Your Own” mode that allows you to play the game with your own custom prompts, or prompts made by others. Here’s how it works. (You can also check out our blog article which includes Quiplash 3 custom episode creation!)
Playing a Custom Episode
When someone publishes a custom episodes of Drawful 2 or Quiplash 2/Quiplash 3, the game generates a seven-digit code for easy sharing. Something like “CTR-BLIQ”. Once you have a code, playing the episode is easy.
Start the game normally, and enter the lobby. We’ll use Quiplash 2 in this example, but it works the same in Quiplash 3 and Drawful 2.
The first player in the lobby (the VIP) will have the EPISODES MENU button. Hit that, then enter the custom episode code and press submit. Any episodes you’ve played previously will also be listed on this screen.
Making Your Own Custom Episode
But enough about playing other people’s dumb prompts. Here’s how to make your own.
Choose the MAKE YOUR OWN option from the main menu.
The lobby will change to reflect that the custom episode has been loaded. Once all the players have joined, you can start the game normally and enjoy those sweet custom prompts! Easy!
NOTE: In most cases, custom episodes are cross-platform. So, an episode made on a PC will work on an Xbox One and vice versa. The one exception is PlayStation 4, which can only play episodes made on other PlayStation 4 consoles.
Log into the Make Your Own Lobby by going to jackbox.tv on your device and entering the four-digit code displayed onscreen.
Choose CREATE A NEW EPISODE and give it a snappy name. If you’ve previously made an episode, you can load it up for editing from this screen.
Then you (and any others who log in) can write prompts and add them to the episode. The VIP (first player to log in) can delete prompts they don’t like by hitting the X next to the prompt.
When you’re done adding prompts, press DONE. You’ll want at least 16 prompts for an eight-player game of Quiplash 2, or 12 prompts for a six-player game of Drawful 2. The game will use built-in content if you don’t have enough.
The next screen will let you EDIT (go back to adding prompts), PUBLISH (get a code to share your episode with others), PLAY (load your custom episode in the game lobby to play), DELETE (delete!), or go BACK TO EPISODES to see the list of episodes or make a new one. There’s no need to manually save an episode. It’s saved automatically as you make it. There’s also no need to make a game public by publishing it if you only want to play it locally.
Tap the icons at the top to hide the prompts from the TV screen if you want them to be secret, or to hide the prompts other players type from your own device.
If you choose to publish, you’ll have to agree to the terms of service. Then you’ll get a code that will let anyone load and play your episode!
