You Don't Know Jack
has been a fan-favorite party game with trivia fans since the '90s. However, the series' exclusion from the past three Jackbox Party Packs
has left a void in players' lives that only Cookie Masterson can fill. This weekend at PAX, developer Jackbox Games hit us with a double whammy: a new installment of You Don't Know Jack
will be one of the games in The Jackbox Party Pack 5
, which was also announced.
Jackbox knew players would have questions about YDKJ's return, and they've compiled a handy (and hilarious) FAQ
with the You Don't Know Jack
humor players know and love. The long and short of it is that yes, beloved host Cookie Masterson will return, the game will be the same formula that players expect plus new features, and players can once again use their mobile devices as controllers.
A list of "easy to digest bullet points" was provided about the upcoming game:
- Eight player support
- Bigger, crazier Jack Attack
- New question types
- Audience integration
- Brand new fart sounds
- Streaming features
- Begrudging meme references
- New ways to Screw
- A lot of old fart sounds too
- More than one Frasier joke for some reason
There will also be four other mini games in The Jackbox Party Pack 5
, which are yet to be announced. Jackbox promises "the other games are awesome too."The Jackbox Party Pack 5
will launch in fall 2018.
