Jackbox Party Pack 1 and 2 coming to Switch

by Oliver BrandtJuly 15, 2017

Earlier in the year, Jackbox Games launched The Jackbox Party Pack 3 for the Nintendo Switch, but you might have noticed that the first two packs were absent. But fear not! They’re on the way.

Jackbox Games announced via Twitter that The Jackbox Party Pack and The Jackbox Party Pack 2 are both coming to the Switch… at some point. We don’t really know more than that, all we know is that they’re coming.

I’ve actually played both of these packs quite extensively on other platforms, and all of the included games are fantastic. Plus, if The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is anything to go by, they should be very reasonably priced. You can see Jackbox’s description for each of the games included in each pack below.

The Jackbox Party Pack

For 1-100 players!
Your phones or tablets are your controllers!
The team behind YOU DON’T KNOW JACK presents FIVE guffaw-inducing party games in one pack!
Games include:

  • The comedy trivia sensation YOU DON’T KNOW JACK 2015 (1-4 players) with hundreds of all-new questions.
  • The hilarious bluffing game Fibbage XL (2-8 players), with 50% more questions added to the original hit game Fibbage.
  • The bizarre drawing game Drawful (3-8 players), where you draw right there on your phone or tablet.
  • The racy-as-you-want-to-be fill-in-the-blank word game Word Spud (2-8 players).
  • The wacky-fact-filled Lie Swatter (1-100 players).

Players play using their phones, tablets, or even computers as controllers – making it the perfect easy-in entertainment piece for your next game night or party. Once a game is started from the in-pack menu, players simply connect to the “jackbox.tv” web address on their device and then enter the provided 4-letter room code to enter a game. No big mess of controllers needed!
You’re gonna need more than one party for this!


The Jackbox Party Pack 2

The Even More Ultimate Game Night Bundle!
It’s the sequel to the party game phenomenon The Jackbox Party Pack, featuring FIVE fresh, rib-tickling party games! Games include:

  • Fibbage 2 (2-8 players)
    The runaway hit bluffing game with over 500 brand-new questions, more than 2x the original! Plus new features, like the deFIBrillator!
  • Earwax (3-8 players)
    The hear-larious sound-effects game that will leave you up to your ears in laughter! Cow moo? Huge explosion? Or tiny fart? Which to choose?
  • Bidiots (3-6 players)
    The absurd art auction game where you draw right there on your phone or tablet. Outbid your opponents for weird art pieces – drawn by players themselves – and win this strangely competitive auction game! Don’t be a bidiot!
  • Quiplash XL (3-8 players)
    The say-anything, gut-busting Quiplash XL (3-8 players), which includes everything in Quiplash, Quip Pack 1, AND over 100 brand-new prompts!
  • Bomb Corp. (1-4 players)
    The bomb-defusing nailbiter of a party game! As interns at Bomb Corp., you must defuse random bombs in the office in order to keep your jobs. You’ll probably die, but it’ll be good work experience!

Players play using their phones, tablets, or even computers as controllers – making it the perfect easy-to-join party starter. No extra controllers needed! And, up to 10,000 spectators can join and affect some games by playing as Audience members!
It’s a game-night riot in a box… without the box!

Oh wow!

    Okay this is tempting I’m always bringing it to friends houses, and the swotch is much easier to cart around than a whold PS4. If they were to release Drawful 2, then I’d totally skip Jackbox 1 (it really only has the original drawback and YDKJ)and invest in the sequels.

    Will definitely double dip again.
    Earwax is amazing.

    My 11year old daughter had the best Earwax sound. For “How eich people go to the toilet” she used Helicopter and Evacuating bowels. Of course this was mere days after Bronwyn Bishop’s helicopter rort hit the news.
