January 14th, 2015 - January 6th, 2018

Grumpcade is a series on the Game Grumps channel, in which a combination of two to four of the Game Grumps or guests play a console game.


Grumpcade was first teased by the Game Grumps at a panel. It debuted on January 14th, 2015 with "Super Smash Bros for Wii U", where it was revealed that Grumpcade would feature any combination of two to four of the Grumps playing console games. It was also revealed that the show would feature guests, making it a sort of successor to Guest Grumps as well. Jared "ProJared" Knabenbauer was later revealed to be the first guest on Grumpcade, debuting in "Slippery Butts".

Brian was inducted as a member of the Game Grumps, as well as a Grumpcade cast member, debuting in "Burger Time".


The format of Grumpcade is nearly identical to those of Game Grumps, Steam Train, and Steam Rolled. Like Game Grumps, the show features console games. However, similar to Steam Train and Steam Rolled, the show can feature any combination of two to four of any of the Game Grumps, not just Arin and Danny.

Grumpcade occasionally features guests. Grumpcade differs from Guest Grumps as it features Grumps besides Arin and Danny hosting with the guest, as well as that Grumpcade tends to have guests from within the YouTube community, as opposed to Guest Grumps which features celebrity guests.

Episodes of Grumpcade were usually uploaded in the middle slot on the Grumps' daily schedule, at approximately noon PST, sandwiched between episodes of Game Grumps. Grumpcade episodes have decreased in overall frequency since the start of 2017, due to the elimination of the middle slot.

  • Despite being featured in the Grumpcade intro, Danny would not appear on Grumpcade until November 5th, 2015, nearly 10 months after the show's debut.
  • Nintendo-based YouTuber Jwittz, aka Josh Wittenkeller, has expressed interest in being a guest on Grumpcade.[1] Arin showed interest in this proposal.[2] Despite this, as of December 2018, nothing has come of it.
  • Even though the show is based around playing console games, the Game Grumps played the PC versions of Spelunky, The Jackbox Party Pack 2, and Chambara during their playthroughs of these games.
  • Runescape appears to be the final Grumpcade series, as it ended in January 2018. As of June 2019, no new Grumpcade episode has come out, likely due to it not fitting in with the new visual style.
