Jackbox rarely disappoints and The Jackbox Party Pack 6 proves that the series is just as entertaining as it ever was. The return of Trivia Murder Party is welcome, and the four new games all bring something unique to the table. If you've ever enjoyed a Jackbox title before, you'll absolutely want to pick this one up.

So overall, JackBox Games Party Pack 6 is a great addition to the series with plenty of new additions to suit multiple moods to a night amongst family and / or friends. From Murder Trivia making a return to new cheesy things like Joke Boat, and it stands alone just as easily as it stands alongside the other five party boxes.

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 continues Jackbox's streak of funny, low-key party games without deviating much from their established formula. If you're looking for something fun to do with a group for a couple of hours, you can't go wrong with one of the Jackbox Party Packs. There aren't really any experimental games like Zeeple Dome from last year's collection, but there's plenty worth playing in this year's Pack.

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 has one weak mini-game, but otherwise it's perhaps the most well-rounded collection of party games yet.

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 brings excellent new additions to your party game rotation with Push The Button and Dictionarium, but falls flat with Joke Boat.

Despite being built from previously-used parts, The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is still one of the more solid and consistent collections.

Jackbox Party Pack 6 is an enjoyable set of party games, albeit one that probably needs an audience at 16-35 years old to get the most out of it. It doesn't have the raw humour or appeal that, say, Party Packs 2 and 3 embody, but it's still a solid title in its own right.

Jackbox games have always had a very specific brand of humor that is just plain weird. I don't mean that in a bad way; I mean that in the wacky, endearing definition of the word. While it is this off-the-way, non-sequitur humor that drives it, but the accessibility of Jackbox Party Pack 6 has something for everyone across a broad audience.

With the highly-awaited sequel in Trivia Murder Party 2 and a surprise hit in Push the Button, Jackbox Party Pack 6 is near-perfect party-game heaven.

It’ll be a fine pack to have stored away for all of the gatherings that will surely come as the holidays approach, though surely some people will be sad that none of the games let them really show off their drawing skills.

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 comes in with some great games, and a few really forgettable ones. Push the Button does well as a complete departure from the traditional Jackbox Style and Trivia Murder Party 2 and Role Models are a great laugh for a party.

Like most Jackbox Party Packs, Jackbox Party Pack 6 has a couple of fantastic games, and a couple that don’t quite hit the mark.

An uneven selection of party titles which, while polished, doesn't have a killer game in its bundle to make it a must-have purchase.

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 brings with it four new games and the sequel to Trivia Murder Party. It's more polished than the previous releases on launch, but none of the new games are particularly great.

Ultimately, Jackbox Party Pack 6 feels like a letdown. It's missing both You Don't Know Jack and a game where you have the chance to draw, and those two experiences are ones that my group of friends has always very much looked forward to. If you loved Trivia Murder Party or aspire to have your own stand-up routine, Jackbox 6 might be worth your time, but you're probably better off looking into one of the earlier collections that seem to be regularly going on sale.

If you haven’t played a Jackbox Party Pack game before, all of these games are going to feel relatively fresh. Some are better than others, but you’ll at least get a few laughs out of it.

MEDIOCRE - It pains me to score The Jackbox Party Pack 6 so low because I’m truly a huge fan of the series. Normally at least two or three of the five included games are a blast, but this time around only one (Trivia Murder Party 2) really delivered the goods. Some may find a few more of the included games worth their time, but overall I can’t help but be disappointed.
