ESH | Jackbox Party Pack 5 Review

Jack­box Games has been putting out some qual­ity party games for some time now. I would eve go as far as to say that they rev­o­lu­tion­ized the party video game genre with the release of the orig­i­nal Fib­bage. After sev­eral new entries, there’s always the chance that they could be run­ning out of ideas. Not every pack of games has been lived up to the high highs of the series as a whole, but I am pleased to report that The Jack­box Party Pack 5 has some fresh new games that keep me con­vinced that Jack­box Games still has the magic touch in cre­at­ing awe­some party games. Let’s go through each of the entries in The Jack­box Party Pack 5 indi­vid­u­ally to dis­cuss what makes each of them great.

ESH | The Jackbox Party Pack 4 Review

When The Jack­box Party Pack first came out, it rev­o­lu­tion­ized how mul­ti­player video games could work at par­ties. So long as every­one had some kind of smart device, any­one could pick up and play the sim­ple and addic­tively fun games. As new entries have arrived, there has been a mixed bag of as Jack­box Games has exper­i­mented with the for­mula. Com­ing off of what was, in my opin­ion, the best suite of games thus far with The Jack­box Party Pack 3, there was a lot to live up to for The Jack­box Party Pack 4. Some games suf­fer from over­com­pli­cated rules, but largely this is another fun pack of games that any group can enjoy.
