    Jackbox Party 6 has some great mini-games, and some decent ones. Far more adult oriented, its major downside is the higher degree of involvement and lesser payoff for some of the games. That being said, every single one in here is good, and some of them get some serious group laughs. Not as beginner friendly as some others, even a moderately committed group of people will find great fun somewhere in the five different games here.

    Despite being built from previously-used parts, The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is still one of the more solid and consistent collections.

    Jackbox Party Pack 6 is an enjoyable set of party games, albeit one that probably needs an audience at 16-35 years old to get the most out of it. It doesn’t have the raw humour or appeal that, say, Party Packs 2 and 3 embody, but it’s still a solid title in its own right.

    The Jackbox Party Pack 6 delivers some fantastically hilarious highs that are unfortunately paired with some awkward and cringing lows. To lay it all out, Trivia Murder Party 2 and Push the Button are both fantastic, Role Models feels like a throwaway and Dictionarium and Joke Boat fall somewhere in the middle. Overall this year’s quintet offers enough laughs and proves even six packs in that Jackbox Games can still deliver.

    Jackbox Party Pack 6 is another solid addition to the franchise. It follows the tradition of featuring a couple of standout hits, some decent entries and one that probably won’t get a second look. Despite borrowing ideas heavily from prior packs, the highlights here are great and both Trivia Murder Party 2 and Push the Button alone make it worth the price of admission. It’s not the strongest Jackbox pack, but it’s still one of the best casual multiplayer experiences for gamers and non-gamers alike.
  6. 60
    Ultimately, Jackbox Party Pack 6 feels like a letdown. It’s missing both You Don’t Know Jack and a game where you have the chance to draw, and those two experiences are ones that my group of friends has always very much looked forward to. If you loved Trivia Murder Party or aspire to have your own stand-up routine, Jackbox 6 might be worth your time, but you’re probably better off looking into one of the earlier collections that seem to be regularly going on sale.

    This is, in my opinion, the best Jackbox party pack. Even though a lot of people complain about reusing old ideas, I think they do it in aThis is, in my opinion, the best Jackbox party pack. Even though a lot of people complain about reusing old ideas, I think they do it in a refreshing way. Most games are enjoyable, compared to the usual only two or three good ones per pack. Murder mystery party 2 is a great sequel that adds onto the first one very well. Role model is a cute little personality game, which can be pretty fun. Joke boat sounds absolutely earful, but if your playing with creative people, it works out well and is really funny. Dictionarium is not horrible, it just doesn’t seem fun. You basically make up a definition for a word, then make up a word for the definition, then make a sentence with the word. Not great, but not horrible either. Push the button is a very interesting one. Close to Fakin it, you have to guess who the alien is by putting people in groups of two and testing them against each other. This one, while it can be fun, is confusing and can be bad if your playing with slow people. Overall, great selection, if these game sounds like something you would play, get it. Expand

    The Jackbox Party Pack 6
    One of the best jackbox packs of all time
    Party pack 6 like every other jackbox party pack, is a package of 5 games
    The Jackbox Party Pack 6
    One of the best jackbox packs of all time
    Party pack 6 like every other jackbox party pack, is a package of 5 games best played with 4 or more players and this pack is an abosulte staple in your jackbox collection, featured here is the sequel to one of the best party pack games of all time, Trivia Murder Party 2 Where you and your friends try to be the last one standing and then you compete with their ghosts to be the soul survivor of this trivia game full of laughs and dumb fun mini games, then from great to bad, we have ditionarium, you create the definitions of a word, vote on the best answers. I can see its potential but I personally didn’t care to play more than once, then we have role models, which I loved, youre given a catergory, you then place all of your friends on the phrase that best matches their personality, and you can bet extra points on personality traits youre sure a majority will place a certain person in, you get points based off of how well you know the people playing, and with a group of close friends this game can be hilarious, speaking of hilarious, or at least tries to be,, joke boat, you and your friends are given topics and then you attempt to write a standup comedy bit about that topic,your friends then vote on the best punchline or joke, this game can have its moments, but like mosty jackbox games you need the right people to make it any fun.. and then finally we have push the button.. this game is sortve like among us, but youre all in the room together, there is an alien among you, and your goal is to figure out who that is by placing 2 people at a time into rooms and hve them complete tasks, all while the alien attempts to sabotage the other players to make it seem s though they are the alien, as the alien is given different tasks.. I love these types of game, but this is one that really is at its best with more players, and I found that 4 just doesn’t cut it here..
    All in all,Party Pack 6is one of my favorites and is a must have..
    I give the Jackbox Party Pack 6
    an 8.5/10
