The folks over at Jackbox Games are back on the scene with five new games brought together in The Jackbox Party Pack 6. Will there be enough fun concepts here to consider it as an option for your next social gathering?
Well, let’s figure out what games are part of The Jackbox Party Pack 6 and see if they’ll entice you in for a purchase. Firstly, the game show-loving serial killer from Trivia Murder Party – first seen in The Jackbox Party Pack 3 – returns, with more trivia and some dastardly new mini-games to enjoy in the sadistic quiz provided by Trivia Murder Party 2. It’s bigger, funnier and even weirder than before. Can you and your local pals survive a night in the Murder Hotel? Who will win, and more importantly, who will you betray?
Role Models looks to test your personality, enabling the ability to express to everyone who you really are whilst finding out what your friends actually think about you. After that it’s all about the Joke Boat where you can take part in a cruise ship’s talent show and showcase your wit by writing hilarious one-liners.
Going off on a tangent slightly is the bizarre Push The Button offering, which has alien invaders who look like your best friends. Take on a series of creative tests that will determine if you’re human or a sneaky space creature trying to blend in, with the aim to find the aliens and eject them into space before the timer runs out. Last, but not least, is Dictionarium and this game essentially consists of coming up with ingenious definitions for words and phrases – in the hope of making everyone laugh, of course.
Should The Jackbox Party Pack 6 on Xbox One be a prime candidate for the entertainment during the next party you host, a simple visit to the Xbox Store and a payment of £24.99 is all that’s required to give it a download. And don’t forget, no extra controllers are needed as you’ll be using your phones, tablets or computers instead!
