The Jackbox Party Pack looks like it’ll be fun with friends over

Five games in one

Jackbox Games (formerly Jellyvision Games) was responsible for my favorite quizshow videogame of all time — You Don’t Know Jack — so I’m always anxious to see what they can do in the current era. Recently they’ve been developing a string of games that have full smartphone and tablet support, so that a large number of players can use them own phones as controllers, eliminating the need to buy four for your platform of choice.

Their newest release The Jackbox Party Pack, incorporates that philosophy on the PS4, PS3, and Xbox One. It comes with five games — You Don’t Know Jack 2015, Drawful, Word Spud, Lie Swatter, and Fibbage. I can personally vouch for You Don’t Know Jack and Fibbage, as they’ve created countless hours of entertainment whenever I have friends over.

It’s $25 which is pretty steep at first glance, but there are trials for a few of the games in the pack.
