About The Jackbox Party Pack 8

About this game

Developed and published by Jackbox Games, Inc.

Enjoy the eighth instalment into the fan-favourite Jackbox Party Pack franchise, featuring five brand-new games that will allow you to spice up your game night with numerous hilarious titles and prompts that are sure to keep the laughs going. Play with a vast group of people with tablets, phones, and even other computers as controls to join in on the fun!

Drawful Animate

Drawful is back and more animated than ever! Play with 3–10 players; the drawer will have to create two looping frames to describe the weird and random title they got! Once that's been done, every player will factor in their guess, and then everyone will be forced to pick from all of the guesses! Each time your guess is picked, you get a point, and each time the original quote gets selected, the drawer gets a point!

The Wheel of Enormous Proportions 

Get a group of 2–8 players and answer trivia questions! To favour those with less trivia knowledge, The Wheel of Enormous Proportions allows players to earn points according to how many answers they get right and also get slices to slot into the wheel! When spinning times come, slot all of your pieces onto the wheel to get even more points! Once a player reaches 20,000, they'll be able to spin for a chance to win, or else the game continues!

Job Job

It's time to get a job! 3–10 of people will answer icebreaker questions and– oh no! M. Bubbles — the host and job interviewer — put them in a shredder by accident! Not to worry, take them out and piece together words from your friends' icebreaker answers to formulate responses to the job interview. Once you've answered the question, it's time to get a vote! Better think on your feet — it's essential for this job!

The Poll Mine

Split a group of 4–10 players and receive numerous polls that you'll rank. Laverne Caverne, the host for this party game, will survey both teams, and then all players will have to guess the order of the preference of the team! Answer prompt questions and figure out how your team agrees or disagrees on these subjects!

Weapons Drawn

Play with 4–8 players as you'll take of both detectives and murderers... Play a sinister game of death as the detectives set up a party where they'll get points for each crime they solve, but so too, for every kill they get. Draw your weapon and set your signature stamp — a letter from your name — hidden inside as a clue for your fellow detectives. Can you cleverly hide your signature and find others'?

Fun nonsense

Ben
Verified purchase
There is a greater focus on drawing in this pack than in many of them, but the games are solid and have a lot of variety. The narrators are probably at their most banal, but you just can't get this quality nonsense anywhere else, most of the time.

If you were only going to buy one Jackbox pack, I probably wouldn't recommend this one.

Drawful Animate and Job Job are good, but the rest range from bad to meh. I wouldn't buy this unless on deep discount. Also, on a different note, these games have so much preamble and the humor is for me hit or miss. I'd rather the humor and fun come from playing with my friends.

All five games are pretty great this go around, though some like Poll Mine are best played with a larger group. Job Job might be the funniest game they've ever included, though.
