    As far as I'm concerned, buying the game means you get one of the most consistently fun games ever made — anything more than that (in this case, Fibbage XL and Drawful both being enjoyable) is just a bonus.

    For $24.99 this is definitely recommended, and almost required to make those family gatherings this season a little less awkward.

    “Word Spud” is more “Word Dud”, but the other games are destined to be played between your Rock Band, Dance Central or Just Dance sessions.

    A solid trio of games, let down by two lesser entities and a control scheme that can be laggy.

It's multiplayer makes this great- the Fibbage XL, and the drawful game being stand outs. The humor is for the most part hilarious. The only thing that troubles me about this game is that after just one day, Fibbage XL is running out of options. If they had larger supplies of possible questions, this game could be up there with the greats. Expand

From the ridiculous drawings in Drawful to the vulgar and hilarious lies in Fibbage, no one wants to stop playing. I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a party game that'll get everyone in a good mood. Expand

    Literally near endless amount of fun (party game wise) for the decent price tag. For those who already cleared all the questions in Fibbabe,Literally near endless amount of fun (party game wise) for the decent price tag. For those who already cleared all the questions in Fibbabe, the updated version (Fibbage XL) included offers so so so many more. Between Fibbage and Drawful it will be hard to get tired of this game. You Don't Know Jack is really the only game included that you can play solo, the others will require at least 3 or more people to get the best experience. Can't recommend this enough, or get enough of it. While having people over we have easily gone into the early hours of the morning without noticing it just from wanting to keep playing these games over and over and keep us laughing hysterically. This is also a collection that is easy to include family and older people at the gathering, as long as they have a touch screen phone/tablet with a wifi connection to play. Expand

    The makers of You Don't Know Jack bring you the Jackbox Party Pack.
    It includes:
    You Don't Know Jack 2014 - 4 Player Trivia Game Show of awesomeness. Don't forget your screws.
    Fibbage XL - 8 Player Trivia Game where you can bluff your friends with wrong answers.
    Drawful - 6 Player Win Lose or Draw type game where you can bluff your friends with wrong Picture titles.
    Word Spud - Casual word association with I believe up to 8 players. It's definitely an afterthought to the pack. Can be fun if you make your own rules and vote up or down fairly. But generally it's a bit boring.
    Lie Swatter - 100 Players can play this port of an old You Don't Know Jack mini game. It's perfect for large outings with an open bar... and can work for some casual fun before bedtime as well.

    The Jackbox Party Pack is as fun as it sounds and is definitely a must have for board game night.

    The Jackbox Party Pack is a fairly decent set of games that doesn't require everyone to purchase to have their fun. I personally dig YouThe Jackbox Party Pack is a fairly decent set of games that doesn't require everyone to purchase to have their fun. I personally dig You Don't Know Jack, Fibbage and Drawful, though Lie Swatter is mildly entertaining. The Word Spud game is a mess and my friends and I didn't enjoy it whatsoever. Perhaps the biggest problem is how quickly some of the better games like Fibbage can be devoured - not enough question content to last more than a couple lengthy game nights (my friends and I started seeing 100% question reproduction after ~10 hours total of play). That was sad for us since that was our clear favorite of the pack, and I personally enjoyed Drawful but that game can be a bit rough to play if you have a smartphone with a screen size 4.5" or smaller (otherwise have smaller fingers/hands). If you aren't going to play this frequently then perhaps the content will be more worthwhile and it will last you plenty of game nights. There is a follow up to this Jackbox Party Pack, so if you can get a bundle of the two like I did for a discount, there's more to like here. Expand

    Awful! Three of the games repeat the same questions over and over, we’ve on,y played three times and we know all the “truth” answers. Boring!Awful! Three of the games repeat the same questions over and over, we’ve on,y played three times and we know all the “truth” answers. Boring! Also it is rated T and I feel like some of the questions are not appropriate for a family or even for our teens to play with their friends. Waste of money! Expand
