  • While there aren’t any new games included in this pack, you could definitely consider it a bit of an All-Star package of three very diverse games together for the first time and a perfect starting point for anyone who hasn’t yet been made a fan of Jackbox’s goodness. Trivia Murder Party 2 is absolutely a family favorite, with it’s core style being a throwback to the classic You Don’t Know Jack series, but throwing in a creepy narrator and loads of odd mini games to spice up the trivia. Quiplash 3 is from what is probably my overall favorite series from Jackbox, working by giving everyone prompts to riff off of and then having everyone vote on who had the best responses. At a party we literally put this up against Cards Against Humanity and without the constraints of pre-made answers this won easily for which prompted the most laughs. Finally there’s Tee K.O. moving in a different direction by including people making drawings, but then adding in captions and having people try to choose the best combinations to make the best shirts. Each of them are great fun, inspire creativity, can be scaled even to larger groups with the Audience feature (once more than 8 people join the remainder become the audience who can’t play but can still vote to participate), and can even be enjoyed by people of any age… use the family setting to tone down the prompts. If you already have some or all of them already, obviously this won’t be a necessary purchase, but if you aren’t already a Jackbox fan or have been looking for the perfect point to jump on the bandwagon this is absolutely what you’ve been waiting for.
