The Jackbox Party Pack 2 announced

Jackbox Games has announced another Party Pack, but it’s not clear whether it will feature a new You Don’t Know Jack game or not.

The original Jackbox Party Pack included five games, easily the most recognisable of which was You Don’t Know Jack, the classic trivia game. It also included Fibbage, Drawful, Word Spud and Lie Swatter. The games were all played with tablets or phones rather than controllers.

The headline act for the second Jackbox Party Pack will be a sequel to Fibbage. In the original game, a weird trivia question is asked, and each player must come up with a fake response. At the end, all responses are shown – including the real one – and players get points for guessing the right answer, or when other players choose the answer they provided. It’s a lot like the boardgame Absolute Balderdash.

It’s unclear at this point whether Fibbage 2 will radically alter the formula, but it will include a streaming mode, allowing much larger audiences to nominate their favourite answers. It’s also not clear what other games will be included. The Jackbox Party Pack was a solid party game though, and hopefully this will provide similar fun.

Thanks, Polygon.
