It's only recently I've discovered the fun of Jackbox - the mini-game compilations designed for parties, controlled using your phone in one hand, and preferably while holding a can of something in the other.

Some Jackbox mini-games are better than others, sure, but the ones which are good are absolute bangers.

So it's great to see the original Jackbox as the next Epic Games Store freebie, coming on 24th January and available to claim until 7th February. Just sign up for a free Epic account (if you don't already have one to play Fortnite) and it'll be yours.


The original Jackbox includes You Don't Know Jack 2015, Fibbage XL, Drawful, Lie Swatter and Word Spud - of which Fibbage and Drawful are probably the best.

Until then, the brilliant What Remains of Edith Finch is the current freebie, available to claim until 24th January. Definitely don't miss that.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
