Here we go, The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is another bunch of fun games for you guys and gals that love your multiplayer games. I was a bit late to this series, jumping in with the fifth installment. However, it has been a firm favorite of mine and a couple of friends that I love to play online with. Today we are having a look at the five fun filled new games that this latest installment in the series is throwing your way.
For the fourth time, we have Fibbage! This is a game that me and my friends love as it is all about trying to trick your friends. This latest version of Fibbage in The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is going to change things up a bit with some new questions that have been submitted by the community and there is another couple of new elements such as a brand-new Final Fibbage mode and Fibbage Enough About You mode as well. This game is for 2 to 8 players.
Quixort is pretty noteworthy as it is the only game in The Jackbox Party Pack 9 that allows you to play by yourself. You can play this with 1 to 10 players and it is a sorting game. There will be answers falling from the top of the screen and before they hit the floor, you have to put them into the correct order. This is a game that is simple in premise, but it is very fast and frantic, especially when you have to work as a team!
For me, Junktopia is probably the weirdest game that is part of The Jackbox Party Pack 9! This one has a wizard turning you into a frog and you have a bunch of strange objects that you have to give backstories to, you then get them appraised and the goal is to make them as valuable as possible. This is for 3 to 8 players and the player who has the most valuable items will get turned back into a human.
Like the previous game, Nonsensory is for 3 to 8 players. This is a game that is about drawing, writing, and guessing and the idea is that you have to guess what another player is coming up with. This game is probably the hardest to describe, but to me, it is like a weirder version of Pictionary or charades and it is a perfect fit for The Jackbox Party Pack 9.
Last, but by no means least we have Roomerang! This can be played with 4 to 9 players and you need to be a TV star. The idea is that you have to quickly respond to any prompts that appear as if you are in the TV show. You need to commit to the role or you could end up being voted out if your performance is not entertaining enough. This is the mode that is sure to get a great deal of laughs out of you and the rest of the people playing!
If you are already into this series then getting The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is a no-brainer! This series is the ultimate multiplayer mayhem kind of game and this latest edition is giving you five new games to play together. As you would expect, you get to tinker with the games and settings a bit to make sure that they are perfect for you and your group of friends.
- Each of the five new games are very unique
- You and your buddies will have a lot of laughs while playing this!
- The game show style presentation is always something I get a kick out of
- There is even a game you can play by yourself in this pack
- You do need to play with people you know to get the best out of this
- I will admit that I am not sold on the Nonsensory game yet
