The Jackbox Party Pack 2

Bid on art, defuse a bomb, and more in the second installment of Jackbox Games' annual party game pack (now with audience participation).

Overview

The Jackbox Party Pack 2 is a multi-device multiplayer party game collection developed and published digitally by Jackbox for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Amazon Fire TV, PC, Mac, and Linux on October 13, 2015. It was later released digitally for the Android TV on December 10, 2015, the Apple TV on March 15, 2017, and the Nintendo Switch on August 17, 2017.

The sequel to the Jackbox Party Pack (and the second in the annual series of the same name), the Jackbox Party Pack 2 adds viewer interaction for its games (previously used in Quiplash), where additional party-goers (including those watching from an online stream) can also use the Jackbox.TV website for limited participation.

The games included are:

  • Quiplash XL (3-8 players) - An update to the party game Quiplash, with new potential prompts (and the original DLC prompts included). Players give answers ("quips") to random comedic prompts, which is then faced head-to-head with another quip for the same prompt (where the players who didn't provide the quips vote).
  • Fibbage 2 (2-8 players) - The second installment of the Fibbage series (after the original game and its Party Pack 1 update), adding a new gameplay mechanic (the DeFIBrillator, which removes all answers but one lie and one truth). Players attempt to bluff other players by making up plausible fake answers to trivia questions (while attempting to pick the correct answer themselves).
  • Earwax (3-8 players) - Players take turns judging other players' pairs of sound effects (which are based on the judge's particular phrase and are made up of six random sound effects given to each player).
  • Bidiots (3-6 players) - A spiritual successor to the Party Pack 1 game Drawful. After using their device to draw a picture based on a phrase, players use their limited funds to participate in a traditional auction for each picture in an attempt to make a profit.
