I’m a huge fan of party games, and the Jackbox Party Packs are a blast. It’s insane to think we’re already to the tenth entry, but the masterminds over at Jackbox Games keep cooking up new ones. Announced today at the ID@Xbox show, Timejinx and Hynotorious are two new game types coming to Jackbox Party Pack 10. Check out the blog posts below to get an idea of what to expect, along with the trailers!
What would you do if you had a time machine? Would you go back and try to fix some mistakes? Would you travel into the future to see who you’ve become? No, of course not! You’d use it to play a high-stakes trivia game!
Introducing Timejinx, a trivia game about the things you know you knew.Introducing Timejinx | The Jackbox Party Pack 10 | Out Now
You’ll play the role of a time traveler who meets up with their ragtag group of friends for trivia night at the residence of our acerbic host, Jerri Rigg. But this is not your typical game night filled with tattered cards, stale pretzels, and a cloud of farts. No. Jerri may not care much about you, but she does care about creating an immersive trivia experience.
Throughout the course of the wild night you’ll be tasked to do the following:
- Hop into your time machine and travel to certain years
- Blend into random parties from different decades
- Navigate your way through a time loop
- Save a real historical figure from their evil imposter
- Fix the absurd butterfly effect you’ve caused
Can you handle the year pressure?
Timejinx is for 1-8 players who want to battle it out to see who’s the least bad at knowing our timeline.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Relax. Open your mind and listen only to this blog post. Yes, that’s it. You are now ready to read about the next game in The Jackbox Party Pack 10 titled Hypnotorious!
“What is Hypnotorious?” you might ask. It’s a game where you and your fellow players take part in a virtual stage show where our host, a mysterious hypnotist, mesmerizes you, then gives you a character to play. So thoroughly do you take on this new persona, that when he asks you a question, you will answer as that character!Introducing Hypnotorious | The Jackbox Party Pack 10 | Out Now
Each player will be keeping their characters somewhat secret because the game is all about deducing each other’s identities. The characters all fit into one of three, secret categories. The categories might be as simple as “Dogs, Cats or Mice,” or they might be something a bit more challenging like “Popular in the 80s, 90s or 2000s.” It’s up to you to figure it out.
Once players answer their questions, you’ll each try to group up based on perceived similarities. The players that group up accurately, score a lot of points, so talking it out is key.
But beware! There is one amongst you who does not fit in at all! They are The Outlier. For each group of categories, one category will only have one player. So, there might be one dog, two cats and three mice. If you want to score big points, you’ll need to identify the Outlier before it’s too late. And the kicker is, The Outlier doesn’t know they’re The Outlier. They’ll be trying to figure it out like everyone else. So don’t give too much away or you might talk yourself into trouble.
Now, as you read this paragraph, allow your mind to regain control but REMEMBER… Hypnotorious is part of The Jackbox Party Pack 10, supports 4 to 8 players and is coming this FALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Hypnotorious is one of five games coming this fall in The Jackbox Party Pack 10 joining the previously announced games, Tee K.O. 2., FixyText, and Timejinx.
