'Fibbage 2' on its own is worth the price of admission.
Today, the sequel to one of the all-time best party games launches. From Jackbox Games, 'The Jackbox Party 2' includes 'Fibbage 2,' 'Bomb Corp.,' 'Earwax,' 'Quiplash XL' and 'Bidiots.'
'Fibbage 2' (2-8 players) is the immediate highlight for me, as the hilarious lying game works great with whatever phones, tablets or laptops are lying around. The new game has twice the as many questions (hundreds) as the original, and includes the pack's online Audience feature. That will be great for smaller local groups of players (as in two players and an audience).
In 'Bomb Corp.,' (1-4 players) players need to work together to get tasks done around the office, such tasks include making coffee and filing, and of course, defusing bombs. This sounds like a blast.
In 'EarWax' (3-8 players) players need to pick two sound effects in order to sound out the given topic. This mental association game appears to be perfect for sorting out the weirdest people in the group.
'Quiplash XL' (3-8 players) is likely to be another major highlight as it is the original 'Quiplash' made XL through extra content like the first DLC make and extra prompts.
In 'Bidiots,' (3-6 players) players draw and bid on each other's terrible drawings using insider information. Again, good for sorting out the oddballs.
Within the five games, players will find the audience participation features, extended timer options for live streaming, and even family filter options. 'The Jackbox Party Pack 2' is priced at $24.99 and is out now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Mac App, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV.
To connect devices to the game, players need only go to https://jackbox.tv and enter the code that appears on-screen during the game. This is so easy, it's scary (my relatives can do it).
