“5 games in a pack – worth the price of the average good board game”
Enter The Jackbox Party Pack – a five game bundle that requires each player to have a smart device and a imagination.
5 Games include:
You Don’t Know Jack 2015
The comedy trivia sensation that is “You Don’t Know Jack” – the 2015 version. It allows 1 – 4 players to test their minds with a new an up to date pack of questions.
It is not the traditional question trivia game – asking unique questions with a unique take on different categories. The more players – the more variety the game becomes.
It sometimes uses American brands so sometimes it falls down – but more often than not it is good enough for a world audience.
Individual game rating – 7/10
The fill in the blanks game where 2-8 players take it in turns – win by winning the most votes. No word restrictions so if an adult audience feel free to tone up the language.
Example – Time ____ – so “Time Flys” or “Time Bandit” – then the next player gets – Bandit _____ .
Comments – Played it with family – it soon devolved into dirty levels of humour.
Individual Game Rating – 8/10
The “Call my bluff” style game for 2-8 players (the more players – the bigger the randomness). Players have to find the truth within the lies, pick another player’s lies and they get points and you lose points.
Comments – Better with more players but it is still good with 2.
Individual Game Rating – 8.5/10
Lie Swatter – a game for 1-100 players. Yes if a 100 player party – a game is available for that party. It has a simple premise – truth or lie.
Comments – The worse game in the bunch. Been suitable for 100 players means not much in variety.
Individual Game Rating – 6/10
Draw a picture and give it a name. Similar to “Draw Something” – accept the words become randomer and ramdomer.
Comments – Good for the drawing people – but if the party can’t draw it will devolve into chaos.
Individual Game Rating – 7.1/10
For the same price as a board game – 5 games in which every person has a laugh as long as they have a good imagination.
Overall Rating – 9.2/10
