MOM KNOWS IT ALL 2018 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – The Jackbox Party Pack 5 Switch
If you’ve been reading here a while then you may recall that back in the day I worked for a computer retailer for more than 10 years. In 1995, when I was pregnant with my oldest son, one of the most popular software titles available was a computer game “You Don’t Know Jack”. The game, designed for adults, was a new type of trivia game where players were contestants on an imaginary show. Players were taked with answering a number of questions from different categories including pop culture. The game proved to be a lot of fun particularly at parties. You Don’t Know Jack is still around today. While you can still purchase for play on a computer, games are also available on some of today’s hottest game platforms including Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, iOS and Amazon Fire TV. The Jackbox Party Pack 5 would be a great gift for anyone who enjoys a good game night with adult family or friends.
