Announcing Game Two in The Jackbox Party Pack 6: Dictionarium

Announcing Game Two in The Jackbox Party Pack 6: Dictionarium

What is “blarnkt”?

A type of fungus? The sound a sick pigeon makes? A stew served at weddings where the couple doesn’t really love each other?

Don’t ask us, it’s up to you! 

The second game joining Trivia Murder Party 2 in The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is… Dictionarium!

In the Dictionarium, you’re served up hot, fresh, never-seen-before words and it’s your job to define them. The definition with the most votes wins, but you’re not off the hook yet! You’ll also come up with a synonym and use the word in a sentence.

By the end of the game, you’ve collectively created an entirely new dictionary entry, which will be forever enshrined in the Dictionarium by it’s faithful keeper.

Who is the faithful keeper of the Dictionarium?

Thank you for asking! She’s upbeat, odd, and Northern European…we think? We didn’t ask her in the beginning and now it’s too late. Words appear to her in unexpected places and she brings them home to the Dictionarium to be defined. She’s like the horse whisperer, but for words. Incidentally, she can also communicate with horses.

Dictionarium supports 3-8 players and an audience of thousands of word-lovers.

Look out for Dictionarium in The Jackbox Party Pack 6, coming this fall on major digital platforms! Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for updates on when you’ll be able to see Dictionarium play-throughs.

The Best Party Pack 5 Game for Your Friendsgiving

The Best Party Pack 5 Game for Your Friendsgiving

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines “Friendsgiving” as “A meal with a Thanksgiving-ish vibe but it’s not exactly *on* Thanksgiving day and it’s mainly for friends and not family, obviously.

We know that not every Friendsgiving is the same, so here are the five types of gatherings you might attend, and which game from The Jackbox Party Pack 5 is best suited to the occasion:

The Coworkers-giving

If you work in retail, you are likely to be scheduled on one of the days sandwiching Thanksgiving (Thanks, capitalism). On this occasion, everyone will be a bit miffed because they wanted to be with their Gan-Gan in South Dakota. Instead, they are with the people they see every day while folding tank tops.

Play: Mad Verse City

Why: Take all the fury you feel about missing your Auntie’s mashed potatoes and channel it into an absolutely scathing rap that destroys your Assistant Manager. After all, she is the one who made the schedule.

The Sorta Friendsgiving

You might end up at a Friendsgiving with a bunch of near-strangers, in which case you are usually required to be on your best behavior. If you end up at a stifling, polite meal, you can break out a game to loosen things up a smidge.

Play: YOU DON’T KNOW JACK: Full Stream

Why: This game is interactive, engaging, and does most of the work for you. Sit back and let us entertain you with jokes and trivia.

The Big Friendsgiving

If there are more than a handful of your friends meeting up this year, you’ll discover two things: 1.) Way too many people brought chips as their “side dish,” and 2.) You’ll need a game that takes advantage of the big crowd.

Play: Split the Room

Why: This game is all about, well, “splitting the room.” See how well you can get the room to debate some weird and silly hypothetical situations.  

The Goofy Friendsgiving

You might find yourself surrounded by a bunch of extroverts this Friendsgiving. If that sounds exhausting, fret not. There’s a perfect game to play with your cast of artistic goofballs.

Play: Patently Stupid

Why: Because of its immense creative freedom, you can really let your performance side shine. Sell your idea harder than your monologue from Into the Woods.

The Friends-With Kids-giving

You might be in your 30s–hey, it happens. In which case, you’re probably at a Friendsgiving with some adorable children. If you need a super kid-friendly game, we’ve got just the thing.

Play: Zeeple Dome

Why: Because flinging yourself at space monsters puts kids and adults on the same level.

Happy Friendsgiving! (Whatever that may be for you!)
