END AUTOMATED TEXT. THREAD CREATOR INFORMATION BELOW.
I grew up loving the heck out of You Don't Know Jack for the PC. I remember playing it for hours with my cousin, who by the way… always kicked my ass at it. He's just naturally better at trivia than I. However now the creator of that series has the third installment of the latest in that family of games (if you can even call that the family).
With Easter Sunday tomorrow and family gathering… and seeing family next weekend… and spending time with friends later this month… I decided to bite the $24.99 bullet (plus tax) and pick this up. Never played any in the series but I am intrigued. It looked fun and I hope to enjoy it with multiple joy cons soon enough. How is everyone feeling on this? Anyone else nabbed it? What's your favorite game? Any recommendations with this game?
I played some of the first Party Pack a while ago. The phone thing was kind of annoying at times (especially when it wasn't necessary for a particular game), and the game quality was uneven, but it was a good time.
This was so fun. I played only three of the five games but I had a blast today at an Easter celebration with the family.
Games I Played:
Quiplash 2 (3-8 players) The say-anything sequel. Play all new questions or make your own!
I only got to play one round of this but it was fun. My sister is not someone who likes to make stuff up on the fly but I know folks who would enjoy it. My nephew even had fun with it.
Trivia Murder Party (1-8 players) A deadly quiz show where you match wits with a trivia-obsessed killer.
This was a really fun trivia game with a dark and funny theme. It's essentially YDKJ but it's got a Saw theme and the mechanism of ghosts and the living allow you to make last minute comebacks which make for intense experiences.
Guesspionage (2-8 players) The brain-battering data-mining guessing game.
This was a lot more fun than my family was thinking it'd be. I was off by 1% on one of my guesses which surprised us all. As a data/stats guy, that was a favorite of mine.
We played with mainly 3 people but 4 at times. It was really fun but I can imagine it only gets more fun the more that are available. Using the phones as our answering devices was super easy and with pretty much everyone having a wifi-enabled phone or tablet of some kind these days, this is a rather accessible game.
