Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a collection of party games developed and published by Jackbox Games, Inc. The games featured in the pack include Fibbage 3, Survive the Internet, Monster Seeking Monster, Bracketeering and Civic Doodle. Each of the games plays differently but they are all connected by one idea – bringing lots of fun to family gatherings, friends’ parties and other events. As such, Jackbox Party Pack 4 received positive reviews from the critics, who praised the varied choice of party games and the fun each of them could bring to the gathering.Wacky world of Jackbox gameplayJPP 4’s features very simple gameplay mechanics – all the participants need are their computers. Depending on the game, the players will have to enter prompts on a keyboard, use mouse to draw or do other things the game will ask of them. Most of these tasks are easy enough for even the most inexperienced gamers. The pack, however, offers some unique features for streamers, including custom content creation and audience features.Party games for party peopleJackbox Party Pack 4 includes five games, that will liven up any boring meeting. Here are the short descriptions of each of them:Fibbage 3 is a perfect game for those of you who have a knack for sleuthing. The rules are simple: each of the participants makes up five lines to fill in a blank in the sentence. The others’ task is to figure out which of them is true. The sentence can be from the are of general knowledge or personal details about the participant.Survive the Internet pits the participants against humanity’s worst enemy – the World Wide Web. The players answer seemingly innocent questions and send these answers to other participants. Their job is now to take the answers as far away from context as possible, adding ridiculous hashtags or other information to make the answerer look like a total dummy.Monster Seeking Monster is a cautionary tale of a date gone wrong…but not really! It’s a fun game where players try to set up dates with each other by sending messages. Each player is a different kind of monster and they receive hearts after specific requirements are fulfilled. Careful, though, because some of the dates take rejection very poorly…Bracketeering is a tournament-style Q&A game, where the answers are not as obvious as they seem to be. The goal of the game is to win in a series of bracket set-ups, where two answers to the same question fight for the top spot. The player can use all the methods at their disposal to convince others to choose their answer. In the Blind Round, however, the player is given a short prompt, after which the true question is revealed. Will it work in your favor or against it?In Civic Doodle, an ill-advised plan to decorate the town is hatched. Two players start drawing, adding elements to the simple base. After the round ends, other participants vote on the best drawing, which becomes the new base. What sort of masterpiece is going to emerge from all of this?ReceptionJackbox Party Pack 4 was met with positive reception from the critics. Reviewers praised the fun games included in the pack, noting that they would easily liven up many a family gathering or meeting with friends. The variety of themes was also noted as a plus of the fourth pack of Jackbox games.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Future
22,94 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Technology affects almost everything we do, and its possibilities can be both exhilarating and daunting. This collection features two radio documentaries exploring Douglas Adams' vision of the digital future, plus Did Douglas Get it Right?, presented by Mitch Benn. Douglas Adams was a passionate technology enthusiast. His bestselling The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is full of futuristic tech, and in 1990 he predicted something very like the World Wide Web in the BBC2 film Hyperland. So in 1999, he was the natural choice to present Radio 4's The Internet: The Last 20th Century Battleground. In it, he looked at the explosion in online communication, the evolution of cyberspace, and the risks and opportunities of the new virtual world. A year later, he hosted The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Future, in which he and his guests discussed how music, publishing, broadcasting, and society in general would be transformed in the 21st century. Sadly, this was Adams' last BBC project: his death in 2001 meant he would never see if his visions came true. However, in 2015, Mitch Benn dipped into the archives for a follow-up programme, Did Douglas Get it Right?, revisiting Adams' predictions to discover how prescient (or otherwise) they turned out to be... Fascinating, funny and insightful, these three programmes are a wonderful tribute to Douglas Adams, and a treat for fans and futurists alike. Produced by Mark Rickards.
