The Jackbox Party Pack is a series of party games created by Jackbox Games. The games were released for various platforms. Each installation contains five games that are designed to be played in large groups, including in conjunction with streaming services like Twitch which provide means for audiences to participate.

The games in the series are for playing with friends, family and streaming (not all modes), online. In order to play, one copy of the game is required. Other players only need to see the game screen and connect from their mobile devices or computers via a special website - jackbox.tv. In most games the maximum number of players is 8 (there are exceptions), but the rest can connect to the viewers (starting with Party Pack 2) and influence the course of the game.

Most games are based on players having to type/draw something, and after that a vote will take place for the best version, or the truthful one (in trivia games). Most games are played in multiple rounds.

History

Jellyvision was involved in the creation and development of the You Don't Know Jack franchise. The game series became famous back in the late 1990s, but by 2001 it was decided to disband the headquarters and all but six employees were laid off. The company focused on business software development.

In the future, Jellyvision returned to developing You Don't Know Jack, releasing new games first for consoles and later for mobile devices and social networks. The franchise brought the company its former success, and all future efforts were devoted to developing similar games. In 2013, the company was rebranded Jackbox Games, and in 2014 the first The Jackbox Party Pack was released.
