You didn’t know You Don’t Know Jack is back

The world's favorite (most antagonist) party quiz game is making a return. You Don't Know Jack brings its trademark multiple-choice questions and otherworldly categories to a year that desperately needs a reason to stop playing HQ Trivia. It's not that HQ Trivia is inherently bad: it's just that dude's face. You know the face. You know what I'm talking about. You're making a little fist…

Aw, hey! I'm so glad you came. You know, I was saying to Alice, just a second ago I was saying to her: "I hope our favourite listener drops in" and now look here you are. That's great, that's so nice. YOU'RE nice. Ha ha. Have a drink. No thank you, I've had twelve. Look, there's Adam. Watch out though, he's gabbing on about Overcooked…

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 brings more anarchic audience participation on October 19th

I've not played as many Jackbox Party Pack [official site] games as I would have liked, but what memories I do have of this brilliant spinoff from the You Don't Know Jack series tend to reduce me to fits of giggles. For those unfamiliar, the Party Packs are quickfire party-style quiz games of creative smartarsery and misinformation, designed to either be played locally with friends…

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 will bring Fibbage 3

Every day is party day at Jackbox Games. They wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy, they grab their glasses then are out the door to commute through Chi-City, but before they leave they brush their teeth with a bottle of Jack because, as the song goes, when they leave for the day they ain't coming back until 6-ish. After such a lively…

Have You Played… You Don’t Know Jack Vol 1?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. You Don't Know Jack [official site] is a series of pop culture quiz games, delivered as gameshows that are taking place inside your computer.

Fun Times: The Jackbox Party Pack 2 Is Out

"It's like a virtual box containing all the entertainment you need for a party but the evening goes a bit awkward when someone keeps cracking boring 'edgy' jokes but look you'll all have a load of fun but oh you do also need to provide your own booze and Twiglets." You can put that quote on the box, Jackbox Games. Two Ns in O'Connor. The…

Quiplash: Party Fun From You Don’t Know Jack Devs

You Don't Know Jack makers Jackbox Games dropped a partybomb of fun to have with friends in The Jackbox Party Pack last year, collecting a load of phrase-drawing, question-answering, lie-telling party games. This week they released the follow-up, Quiplash [official site], a game about coming up with funny answers to prompts then voting on winners. That sounds a bit of a lark in itself, but…

Things are heating up! You're fun, you are. You are great. You are wild. You are the party. If you want other people to feel the fun, though, you might want…

Jackbox Games have updated a whole bunch of them to run on the PC right in front of you, and put the lot out on Steam. Hurrah!
