In the last 3 years, Jackbox Games have established themselves as the kings of the party game genre.
Their yearly Jackbox Party Pack installments never fail to excite people, and now they’ve blown the lid off of the newest entry in the series, The Jackbox Party Pack 4! This time around there are more than just 5 games. That’s right! They’ve added not 5, or 6, or 7, BUT 5 1/2 games (amazing right?) What are these games though? Let’s find out.
Fibbage 3 (Ft. Fibbage: Enough About You)
As the only returning game, Fibbage 3 is more of the same Fibbage goodness that you got to experience in the first 2 packs, but with 2 new features. The first is the audience’s once-again expanded role, as they now get to choose an extra decoy lie for each question. The second big feature is the mythical half game mentioned above: Fibbage: Enough About You. As a part of Fibbage 3, Enough About You has the players finding out truths about themselves and their friends. Is one of your friend’s favorite movies Citizen Kane, or Norm of the North?
Survive The Internet
The Internet can be a dangerous place and Jackbox Games know that. This game is all about taking the answers that your friends and other players answer with and twisting them into something horrifying. One minute you could be saying that you don’t care much for politics, and the next minute that quote is being used as a stance on not caring about Orphans in a burning building. This game is all about being the worst possible person you can be, and loving every moment of it.
Monster Seeking Monster
Is your love life empty? Are you also secretly a monster? Then come on down! Monster Seeking Monster is the next game in the Party Pack and utilizes your phone differently than most of the Party Pack games. This time you’re sending text messages to the people you want to date. The point of the game is to go on as many dates as you can in 6 nights without being rejected. The person with the most hearts after 6 nights is the winner! The audience can also get in on the fun as they can date and win as well! Did I also mention that since everyone is secretly a monster in disguise you also get super powers? So what are you waiting for? Test your luck with these groovy ghoulies!
What would a Jackbox game be without an obligatory drawing game!? Civic Doodle is the next title that will be painting the town in this category. You and 7 other friends are volunteers as part of an initiative to make your town Doodle Valley better. Players will go head to head as they try and finish incomplete drawings given to them. Audience members and other players can also live to react to the pictures using emojis that give surprise bonuses at the end of each drawing. Is that half finished bump a butt or a pair of rabbit ears? It’s all up to you and your imagination!
The last game to grace our presence this time around is a game embodying the spirit of Quplash. Bracketeering can be played with up to 16 players and is all about giving the most heated and dedicated arguments about some of the stupidest things ever (like most message boards and forums). Are Deep Fried Snickers really better than Deep Fried Sour Skittles? There’s only one way to find out.
All new memories and laughs are to be had with The Jackbox Party Pack 4. No solid release date or platforms have been pegged yet, but Jackbox Games promises a release this fall.
