The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a collection of five and a half party games. The latest in the popular series from Jackbox games features new and improved versions of their titles and a few new experiences.
Grab a buddy
Based around gaming with friends, The Jackbox Party Pack 4 offers fast and silly games for local multiplayer or stream based online play. Games can be played locally with smartphones, tablets or extra PCs or via online connections based around a single stream. The lack of private online play is a disappointment but is necessary due to the nature of the games. Included within this fourth edition is the much improved fact guessing game Fibbage 3, world play with Survive the Internet, spooky dating with Monster Seeking Monster, bizarre betting with Bracketeering and the doodle based Civic Doodle. While the games are a step forward for the series, the limitation of The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is its nature as a party game. Without a decent sized group of friends, it is essentially a wasted purchase and may sit unused for a long time.
Fun with friends
The Jackbox Party Pack 4 continues the tradition of wacky party games. How much use players will find from the collection is based entirely on their social circle, however.
