Fourth Jackbox Party Pack to be Called “The Jackbox Party Pack 4”

Fourth Jackbox Party Pack to be Called “The Jackbox Party Pack 4”

Here at Jackbox games, we try to be unpredictable. Sure, every entry in our critically-acclaimed series of party game collections has included the words “The Jackbox Party Pack,” but each one has a completely different number at the end. So, when we decided to make a new one this year, we rolled our twenty-sided die as usual. It landed on two, but we did that one already. So, after nine more re-rolls, we are excited to announce The Jackbox Party Pack 4, coming to major digital marketplaces this Fall!

And, as you might have guessed from that logo up there, the first game in the pack is Fibbage 3. If you’ve played the prequels, you’ll know the joy of fooling your friends with your clever lies, while hunting for the real answers to ridiculous trivia questions. And if you haven’t, there’s plenty of time! The new one won’t be out for months!

It'll look something like this, but it's a work in progress so don't hold us to it!

It’ll look something like this, but it’s a work-in-progress so don’t hold us to it! Just back off, okay?!?!

Especially eagle-eyed fans might notice that there are 10 choices in that screenshot, rather than the traditional max of nine. That’s because this time around, the audience gets to join the fun by voting on their own decoy lies, and guessing the truth along with the players. Now, fooling the audience can really boost your score, so make sure to get as many gullible people as possible to join!

There’s a lot more to say about Fibbage 3 and JPP4, but that’s all we can reveal right now. Stay tuned to the blog, and follow us on Twitter and Twitch for more info!

Announcing Tee K.O. for The Jackbox Party Pack 3

Announcing Tee K.O. for The Jackbox Party Pack 3

Oh boy, I am jazzed about this. If you were at PAX West, or watched the Twitch stream (archived here, starting around the 4 hour mark), you might have caught the public unveiling of Tee K.O., one of the brand new games in The Jackbox Party Pack 3.

You and your party pals have journeyed to mysterious T-Shirt Island where you must compete in an ancient and deadly fighting tournament. But instead of fighting with fists, you fight with t-shirts. Everybody draws pictures and writes slogans, then they get swapped around to other players. Whoever puts together the best/funniest/stupidest shirt wins the battle! Tee…K.O. Get it? I hope you get it. We had a lot of conversations about that name, so just do me a favor and get it, okay?

Honestly, the only thing that could make this game better is if you could somehow purchase the shirts from your game for real… Hmmmm…

So, we’ve talked about Quiplash 2, Guesspionage, Trivia Murder Party, and now Tee K.O. One unannounced game remains in the pack! Except Evan actually said it’s called Fakin’ It at the panel, but you don’t know what that means yet! Stay tuned here and to @jackboxgames for more info.

We Can’t Show Any of These

We Can’t Show Any of These

I wanted to write a blog post showing off some of the amazing drawing people have made in Drawful — and there have been some amazing drawings. Unfortunately, they’re all dongs. Or butts. Or poop. Or butts with poop coming out of them.

Sometimes there’s a really lovely drawing, but the user’s icon is a wiener.

Case in point: here’s a drawing for “guillotine accident.”

Can You Hear Me Now?

Can You Hear Me Now?

During last Friday’s TwitchTV stream, we had some technical difficulties with the audio, so Steve-o had to man the whiteboard and write out what we were doing. Luckily, we just wanted to show videos of some of our never-made concepts.

Here’s Steve-o introducing “Willy Pee,” a game where you watch a video of a dog walking up to something and you have to choose whether or not he will pee on it.

Wonder why that one never got made.

Speakeasy and Carry a Big Deck

Jackbox Games is proud to be part of Chicago’s game design community — a group that has spawned some truly fun, weird, and hilarious games.

Chicago’s own Andy Patton is funding a game called “Speakeasy” on Kickstarter right now. In fact, there’s just 24 hours left to get on board. While it has already reached its main goal, there are some fantastic additions to the game if certain funding milestones are reached.

What is it?

Speakeasy is a game of social deduction. Think Werewolf + the social manipulation of Survivor + the last five minutes of the Godfather.

Update: Kickstarter successful! If you’d still like to get a copy of the game, you can buy one here: http://thegamehaschanged.net/speakeasy/.
