The Jackbox Party Pack is now on the Epic Games Store for the wonderful price of free
5 party games for free? Yeah, sure.
Along with a great payout for developers on purchased games, the new(ish) Epic Games Store also has another feature that should draw people to it every couple weeks – free games. The last two weeks saw What Remains of Edith Finch as the free game, but left today and was replaced with something a little more upbeat.
The Jackbox Party Pack combines five different games – You Don’t Know Jack 2015, Fibbage XL, Drawful, Word Spud, Lie Swatter – and invites you to play with friends on one singular screen. The games all have there fair share of variety, and others can even participate by loading up Jackbox.TV and entering a room code on their phones and laptops.

I think I’m in the minority when I say I’ve never played one of these titles, but I’m a terrible liar so I would most likely be terrible at Fibbage (unless this was all a lie). You Don’t Know Jack 2015 is a more pure trivia title, and will probably be the main draw for those looking to download the pack.
I don’t have any friends, unless you count Kev (and I hate him), but if you have been looking for a decent party game for the next time you’re host to a small get-together, I definitely recommend picking this up. I mean, it’s free, just do it.
