The Jackbox Party Pack is a party game collection developed and published digitally by Jackbox for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 on November 18, 2014. It was later released digitally for the PC and Mac on November 26, 2014, the Amazon Fire TV on December 18, 2014, the Xbox 360 on November 10, 2015, the Android TV on December 11, 2015, the Apple TV and OUYA on April 19, 2017, and the Nintendo Switch on August 18, 2017.

The first in the annual series of party game compilations of the same name by the creators of the You Don't Know Jack trivia game series, the Jackbox Party Pack includes five games that utilize the multi-device multiplayer format of their previous trivia party game (Fibbage). Instead of using the controller, most games require that all players use smartphones and computers (anything with a web browser) to interact with the game in secret (by directing their web browsers to the Jackbox.TV website).

The games included are:

  • You Don't Know Jack 2015 (1-4 players) - An update of the 2011 reboot of the You Don't Know Jack trivia game series, with new episodes. Players are tasked with answering multiple-choice trivia questions in the series's "high culture meets pop culture" format. Unlike other games, this can be played with a controller in single-player mode.
  • Fibbage XL (2-8 players) - An update of the trivia game Fibbage, with new potential questions. Players attempt to bluff other players by making up plausible fake answers to trivia questions (while attempting to pick the correct answer themselves).
  • Lie Swatter (1+ players) - An update to the simple mobile trivia game of the same name, adding multiplayer support for around 100 players. Players guess if statements presented to them are true or false (which is shown as players determining whether to use a fly swatter against a statement on a fly).
  • Word Spud (2-8 players) - A word association game where players take turns coming up with a word or phrase that associate with another word (and get/lose points based on the votes of the other players).
  • Drawful (3-8 players) - A guessing game, similar to Pictionary, where players attempt to draw their given phrase (often playful or nonsensical) on their device, guess what the other drawings represent (or bluff other players with nonsensical answers), then attempt to pick the correct answer.

The compilation was also published in retail format by Telltale on November 3, 2015 for the XB1, PS4, and PS3 and on November 17, 2015 for the 360.
