The core of the game that first appeared in the original The Jackbox Party Pack - which was a remake of the popular You Don't Know Jack games - remains the same, in which players are tasked to answer multiple choice trivia questions presented. You score points via in-game money for answering questions correctly and in a shorter amount of time.
Be warned, you will lose money give the wrong answer. At the end of the game, the winner is the player with the most cash. The game can be played via phones and web-enabled devices, meaning more family members and friends can easily join in. The Jackbox Party Pack 5 will launch this year with You Don't Know Jack and four other games yet to be announced.
