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.

 

Jackbox Party Pack 3

Comments –

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

 

WordSpud

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 _____ .

 

Jackbox Party Pack 7

Comments – Played it with family – it soon devolved into dirty levels of humour.

Individual Game Rating – 8/10

 

Fibbage XL

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.

 

Jackbox Party Pack 1

Stage 1 of each question – “Enter Lies Now”.

 

Jackbox Party Pack 2

Stage 2 – Find the answer in the Madness.

Comments – Better with more players but it is still good with 2.

Individual Game Rating – 8.5/10

 

Lie Swatter

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.

Jackbox Party Pack 4

Comments – The worse game in the bunch. Been suitable for 100 players means not much in variety.

Individual Game Rating – 6/10

 

Drawful

Draw a picture and give it a name.  Similar to “Draw Something” – accept the words become randomer and ramdomer.

 

Jackbox Party Pack 5

Comments – Good for the drawing people – but if the party can’t draw it will devolve into chaos.

Individual Game Rating – 7.1/10

Overall

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
