Jackbox Party Pack 8 Introduces a New Spin on Drawful, a Deception Game, and More
From Mario Party ruining friendships to Overcooked, party games with friends can be a lot of fun. But one game that is the king of party titles and includes party in the name is Jackbox and their party packs, with the Jackbox Party Pack 8 launching soon. One of the games that Jackbox is known for is Quiplash, where players fill in the blanks of phrases and the funniest win. While another game like Drawful has players drawing prompts while players guess what they are.
The Jackbox Party Pack 8
With seven under their belt, they’re aiming for another one with the Jackbox Party Pack 8 launching this October, with five new games, including a spin on the Drawful title, as well as an interesting twist on deception-styled games. All of which were shown in the trailer for the game posted on YouTube.
Drawful now gets a new spin on the game. The rules are simple, every player is given a prompt and has to draw it. Then, players have to guess what the prompt is. Those who get it right will be rewarded points, and the artist with the most points win. However, there’s a new way to experience the game’s drawings, as now they will be animated. Moving images will make identifying the game’s prompts easier and sometimes make the game’s images wackier.
This game is similar to Quiplash, with players being both the game’s interviewers and interviewees. Job Job has players giving job interview questions, and then they’ll have to write an answer that fits the question. The other players pick the best answer, and the one that wins gets the job at the end. With the success of Quiplash, Job Job will be one of the smash hits.
Weapons Drawn is a new style of deception game. Players will be playing both detective and murderer as they draw their weapons to commit murders while trying to figure out who killed who in the game’s wackiest version of Clue yet.
This game tasks two teams to rank bizarre polls if they plan to escape the never-ending chasms of the Poll Mine. Those who make it to the end will be declared the winners.
The Wheel of Enormous Proportions
The Wheel of Enormous Proportions tests players’ knowledge, as questions will be dictated by spinning the wheel in question. Those who win will be granted the answer to the question their “soul has been dying to know.”
With games like Jackbox able to be played with a phone, players from around the world can contribute without worrying about playing in the same room or being limited to only a few players. Jackbox Party Pack 8 supports up to 10 players and launches on October 5.
