Today, Jackbox Games released the first and second entries in The Jackbox Party Pack series to the Nintendo Switch, bringing the entirety of the trilogy to the console. This is in addition to the announcement that the fourth game in the series will be available on the Switch later this year.
From the makers of You Don’t Know Jack, each Party Pack comes with five unique titles where players can participate using their phones; by logging into jackbox.tv players can either play locally on the Switch (or in the case of the second game, act as a member of the audience). The contents are as follows:
The Jackbox Party Pack features five classic games:
- YOU DON’T KNOW JACK 2015: The comedy trivia game sensation, featuring hundreds of brain-twisting questions (1-4 players).
- Fibbage XL: A bigger, better version of the fun bluffing game Fibbage, with 50% more questions than the original (2-8 players).
- Drawful: Compete with other artists in a bizarre drawing game, utilizing your phone or tablet as a canvas (3-8 players).
- Word Spud: Take turns in a fill-in-the-blank word game that can get as vulgar as you want it to be (2-8 players)!
- Lie Swatter: A fun party game in which swarms of players compete to separate the lies from the truth (1-100 players).
The Jackbox Party Pack 2 includes five boisterous titles:
- Fibbage 2: The hit bluffing game returns with over 500 brand-new questions and new features like the deFIBrillator (2-8 players).
- Earwax: Compete in a hear-larious sound-effects game (3-8 players)!
- Bidiots: The strangely competitive and absurd art auction game that lets you draw right on your phone or tablet. Outbid your opponents for weird art pieces drawn by players themselves (3-6 players)!
- Quiplash XL: The gut-busting, say-anything game, expanded with all the content from Quiplash and Quip Pack 1, plus over 100 bonus prompts (3-8 players)!
- Bomb Corp.: Defuse bombs to keep your job as interns at the office of Bomb Corp. You’ll probably die, but it’s good work experience (1-4 players)!
Those who own any of the titles in The Jackbox Party Pack will receive a discount for the other two games, dropping the price from $24.99 to $19.99. Elisha had a field day impressing his friends with the game during his review of the third title. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
