Jackbox is one of the most popular party games available on the internet, and this new edition is certainly not a disappointment with many good games. The $30 pack includes 5 different mini games, including a 3rd version of popular game Quiplash.
Of the available games, 3 of the 5 are great games that are easily replayable, especially in larger groups. The latest version of Quiplash, a game where you answer question prompts, is very intuitive and fun with many tweaks to create a fresh experience. Another amazing new edition is Champ’d up. The game focuses on drawing and creating your own champions which they fight in an arena and the winner of a specific topic is voted for by the audience and other players. The game allows people to take many creative approaches and players can do as they please. The third great game in this pack is Talking points, where you effectively have to present various slides made by other people. While not for everyone, this game is very fun and can lead to some hilarious moments.
In my opinion, I feel as if the other games don’t live up to the standards. The last two games are a game where you work as devils to disrupt human life and the other where you have to guess prompts using limited words. The games feel clunky overall and while still good, are inferior to the three mentioned before making the pack not great value-wise.
Overall, I would recommend this version if you don’t own any other versions of the game. I would rate it an 8/10 as while there are many great games, it is hard to justify the price of $30 when there are many other great Jackboxes you could get on a sale for much cheaper.
