Here it is: The Jackbox Party Pack 4

Here it is: The Jackbox Party Pack 4

I mean, technically, we’ve already announced all five (and a half) games in The Jackbox Party Pack 4, but maybe you don’t want to read five (and a half) separate blog posts to get all the details. Or maybe you’d rather see all six-ish games in action in the below videos from our weekly Twitch and YouTube streams where fans get to play along. Or maybe one post is just better for SEO. Anyway, if you haven’t been keeping up, here’s all the fun to look forward to in this fall’s pack of games. We don’t have an exact release date yet, but we’ll let you know here (and on Twitter and Facebook) the second we do.

Friday Twitch: Phil Ridarelli and #IDARB

Friday Twitch: Phil Ridarelli and #IDARB

We welcomed Lie Swatter host Phil Ridarelli to our Twitch stream this week to hear how fun it was to record audio for thousands of questions in a tiny windowless room. The life of a game show host sure is glamorous!

We also played the insane twitter-driven, soccer-esque, community-nando that is #IDARB. The result: we all suck. Except maybe Mike. But probably all of us.

That said, it led to some fun Jackbox-themed #IDARB characters, including several sexy owls and Billy O’Brien.

Friday Twitch: Papers, Please

Friday Twitch: Papers, Please

On our latest weekly Twitch stream we played the bureaucratic nightmare that is Papers, Please with Chicago poet Robbie Telfer.

At the end we offered a free download code for the Jackbox Party Pack to whoever could tweet the best reason we should allow them into Arstotzka. The winner was @TheMikePerri who wrote:

You can watch us wade through the Eastern European morass that is Arstotzka on You Tube. Glory to Arstotzka!
