Newman JackBox Party Night
Get ready for game night!
Check out the options below, and feel free to suggest your own as well!
Jackbox Party Pack 2
"Players are given a prompt to create a “masterpiece” on their mobile device. Then the auction begins. Throughout the bidding process, you are given hidden tips on your phone about which works of art (based on the prompt) are worth the most or least amount of money. Players bid accordingly and win by earning the highest profit with their purchased pieces. The problem? Well… let’s just say that paintings can look VERY abstract."
"Players must creatively work within some constraints to produce an auditory experience that best captures a phrase. Let’s say you get the prompt: “The craziest football halftime show.” You then choose two sound effects from a short list that best sum up the prompt. A car alarm and a donkey braying? Sure. A donkey braying followed by a long fart sound? Now we’re talking."
Jackbox Party Pack 4
"In Bracketeering, players submit answers to bizarre questions and categories like “Best thing to hold in your online dating profile picture” or “Coolest person to clone an army of.” Those answers then duke it out in a tournament-style instant-elimination bracket, "until the championship answer is crowned."
Survive the Internet
"During each round, players get a different prompt on their device that asks a simple, opinion-based question like, “How do you feel about Fidget Cubes?” Let’s say you’re wildly addicted to them, so you respond with, “I’m addicted to them!”
That response is then randomly sent to another player.
Their objective is to take your quote out of context in the funniest way they can."
"Two players draw at once, adding whatever they choose to a simple starter drawing. Other players and audience members can react with an onscreen emoji in real time as the drawings emerge. Doodle Valley’s Mayor gives out bonus points for whatever emoji strikes his fancy at the end of the match.
When the time’s up, everyone votes on which drawing is the 'best.' "
Jackbox Party Pack 5
"You’ll attend an exclusive, invitation-only seminar hosted by ex-spouses Toby and Lena that is only open to everyone, everywhere. Once inside, each attendee will create a unique problem that will be tasked to their fellow players to solve! Simply draw your inventive design, give it a title and tagline then get ready for the (fake) moolah to roll in!"
Split the Room
"In this surreal game of what-ifs, players are given a weird hypothetical situation that’s missing one key detail. Like this one: The hot new Christmas toy is a cute robotic otter that’s programmed to hold hands with you and say nice things. A bug has been found where once every 100,000 times it will whisper “_____.” You’re the CEO. Do you recall the toy?"
Mad Verse City
"In Mad Verse City, you hear your MC avatar rap the bars that you’ve written (they’re a little robotic, but they’re doing their best). Feeling a bit off your lyrical game? Use the “Write for Me” and “Suggestions” buttons to help. Once you submit your rhyme, smash the “Fire” and “Boo” buttons to react to the other players during the battle."
You Don't Know Jack
"The game (and Cookie) have been acquired by the friendly corporate overlords at Binjpipe, your premiere media streaming service. Binjpipe’s consumer-pleasing algorithms have led to tons of brand new features like “Data Mining” questions, “Player’s Choice,” and brand new Screws that mess with your opponents’ devices when they’re trying to answer the question."
Jackbox Party Pack 6
Push the Button
"Crew members will compete in a series of tests meant to determine their humanity. You’ll scrutinize text responses in the Writing Pod, critique crude doodles in the Drawing Quarters, eyeball odd choices in the Deliberation Deck and attack tough takes in the Opinion Hold.
Once a player thinks they have it figured out, they can shove the accused into the airlock and PUSH THE BUTTON!!!"
"You’re served up hot, fresh, never-seen-before words and it’s your job to define them. The definition with the most votes wins, but you’re not off the hook yet! You’ll also come up with a synonym and use the word in a sentence. By the end of the game, you’ve collectively created an entirely new dictionary entry, which will be forever enshrined in the Dictionarium by it’s faithful keeper."
Jackbox Party Pack 7
The Devils and the Details
"In The Devils and The Details, you use your phone to tap, swipe, spin, and scrub your way through a fast and furious barrage of timed household tasks. Each player takes on the role of parent, teen, or kid, and many tasks require you to coordinate with others in the family."
"Players battle for two rounds to see who will win the vote as the GOAT. In the first half, players are tasked to draw and name two types of characters: a champion and a challenger. First, they create a champion character based on the prompt they receive, like “The Champion of Cute.” Then, that character (but not the prompt) gets sent to another player who has to discern what the contest/prompt is, and create what they hope is a worthy challenger."
"You and your friends take turns giving short speeches that revolve entirely around responding to slides that you have not seen in advance. If it’s a text slide you read the text out loud, if it’s a picture slide… you say whatever comes to mind, whether it makes sense or… well, it probably won’t make sense."
"Choose a prompt. It could be a person, place, thing or story. Within each category, the prompts vary widely! A “person” could be anyone from an actual human being (ex: our lord and savior Oprah Winfrey) to an anthropomorphic dog (ex: Scooby Doo). Then, everyone takes a turn presenting. When it’s your turn, you describe your prompt by tapping words to fill out a sentence. But your options are very limited!"
Jackbox Party Pack 9
"Drawing, writing and READING MINDS! Nonsensory is a silly, laid-back drawing, writing AND guessing game hoping to test your levels of NSP (Nonsensory Perception). Can you make up a movie title that would be 80% likely to be the box office smash of the summer? Can you draw a puppy that’s only a 3 out of 10 on the adorableness scale?"
"Quixort is a game that simply asks you to arrange the multiple answers to a singular trivia question into their proper order. And even better, the answers are contained in blocks that fall from the top and are guided by adorable, hard-working robots. So, you not only get the satisfaction of putting things in order but also the anxiety caused by an unrelenting industrial process that JUST KEEPS SPITTING OUT BLOCKS!"
"You and your fellow roomies will play 5 rounds, and each round includes: • A Challenge - answering funny prompts in character (or not…you do you) • An Advantage - the winner of the Challenge get a special advantage like safety or the ability to swap points • An Elimination - someone WILL be eliminated from the house"
"Junktopia is a joke-driven writing game where you win by building funny backstories for unusual objects. As you enter the world of Junktopia, you and your fellow players have all been turned into frogs by a strange wizard – but don’t worry, he’ll turn you right back! If you can turn the most profit by reselling some strange antiques."
