The Jackbox Party Pack games are some of the most fun I’ve ever had with friends, period. Each release has been a collection of quirky, creative games that can be played with a huge number of people, and all of them allow for creativity and laughs in a way that few multiplayer games can. With a combination of competitive and co-operative games on offer, it’s the perfect thing to pick up for a night of fun with some close friends.

Now, Jackbox Party Pack 6 has finally arrived, bringing with it five interesting games that will test your knowledge, reflexes, and ability to tell a convincing lie. If you’ve never played a Jackbox game, it’s pretty simple. Each player uses their phone to take part in the game, which makes things super easy as basically anybody can join. It’s all done by heading the Jackbox.tv website, signing in using your unique room code, and picking a fun name to join. Whenever you pick a game, it’ll guide you through the rules at the beginning of the playthrough, making the process of teaching a newcomer a quick and simple task.

The games that are included in Jackbox Party Pack 6 are:

  • Trivia Murder Party 2 – A clever trivia game that revolves around escaping a mysterious killer by taking part in both fun mini-games and trivia questions. However, if you fail a mini-game or come in last in points, you’ll be killed and taken out of the game.
  • Dictionarium is a new word game about creating your own definitions to completely made-up silly words.
  • Push The Button is a brand-new hidden-identity game that has players trying to track down the aliens in the group and exposing them. To do so, you’ll take part in both drawing and writing challenges, where the hidden player will get a slightly different clue than the others.
  • Joke Boat is a creative game about being a stand-up comedian. Players take on the role of no-name wannabe comedians who are participating in a talent show on a cruise ship. You’ll need to use your wits to create funny one-liners in order to out-do your rivals.
  • Role Models is all about you, the player. For the first time in a Jackbox experience, you get to use a selfie as you avatar, as you and your friends become guinea pigs in experiments run by a crazy mad scientist.

Jackbox Party Pack 6 is available right now for $29.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
