The Jackbox Party Pack 6
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.
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.
After playing this latest offering from Jackbox Games, I hope they go back to the drawing board for next year's collection.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
