Title
Just some Solid Jackbox
*After playing endless Jackbox games with my roomies throughout the pandemic, some games over discord, and introducing my family to the series as something to do over the holidays, I feel it's time I review each party pack. I plan on reviewing each party pack, so make sure to check my thoughts on the other games if you're looking for what party pack to try next. I don't rate these games the same as I would a video game because they play closer to board games*

It's hard to follow up Party Pack 3 when it comes to quality but Party Pack 4 comes pretty close. For starters, this game contains the best version of Fibbage, Fibbage 3. On top of the already great fibbage selection, this version contains Fibbage about you which allows you to play Fibbage with questions about players around the room. If you love Fibbage, this is the pack to get solely for this version.

Survive the Internet is one Jackbox's best games as it's prompts naturally lead to some creative answers. The photo round tends to be pretty lame but it's otherwise consistently funny.

Monsters seeking monsters is an odd one because while being funny, it actually has quite the mechanical complexity between the secret roles. The problem is that players will not know the roles and not play around them because the game never explains it. If you play this game a bunch it's probably one of the better Jackbox games, but the lack of explanation and the game being too silly for how in depth it is leads to it falling flat for me.

Civic doodle is probably my favorite drawing game, having players draw on each other drawings leads to some funny jokes forming and works well when you have a room of people who draw or don't draw. It also lasts the perfect amount of time, a problem the other drawing games have (they're usually all a little too long).

Bracketeering is the worst of the bunch but it might work well if you're able to get 100 players (the only game to support this many players). It's too simple for gathering around and playing with friends but it seems like fine Twitch bait.

This is a really solid pack and it's worth it alone for the 3 solid games in it, even if monsters seeking monsters will only see some play and bracketeering is too simple.

    monster seeking monster was engineered to allow you to write the most utterly horrific, putrid, and depraved things you can possibly imagine and get away with it

    fibbage 3 is fibbage at its aesthetic peak, monster seeking monster is insanely good, and survive the internet might be the GOAT jackbox game but the other two are so so weak
