Just as they’ve done last October and the year before that, Jackbox Games have released a new set of party games for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a collection of 5 new games that are most fun with large groups of people. The included games are Fibbage 3 (2-8 players), Survive the Internet (3-8 players), Seeking Monster (3-7 players), Bracketeering (3-16 players), and Civic Doodle (3-8 players). All games use the Fire TV as the main board and use mobile devices as the controllers, so it’s easy to get a big game started without having to buy any extra controllers or remotes.
At $24.99, like the other 3 party packs before it, Jackbox Party Pack 4 is among the most expensive apps on the Fire TV. Compared to other apps it may seem pricey, but compared to buying 5 board games, which is what it essentially is, it’s not a too expensive. If you’re thinking you’ll just wait for the new party pack to go on sale for $12.50, like the other packs have eventually done, know that the Jackbox Party Pack 3 took 8 months to first go on sale and the Jackbox Party Pack 2 took over a year after release to first go on sale. While Jackbox sales do happen, they are rare.
