If you've any experience with the prolific Jackbox franchise, you know what you're in for here. Jackbox Party Pack 7 is good fun, especially in larger groups. So long as you possess a slight knowledge of pop culture and aren't afraid of making a bit of a fool of yourself, you'll have a decent shot at winning. Quiplash 3 makes for a great entry point, requiring players to do little more than come up with funny words to fill in blanks. It also has a creation mode that allows players to create their own quips -- which can be especially fun if players take the time to personalize content for the group. Even The Devils and the Details, which can be a bit confusing as players attempt to talk over each other to provide help to one another on timed tasks (this is part of the fun), doesn't take much longer than a quick game or two to understand and begin enjoying.

Some activities may turn off more timid players, though. Talking Points basically makes a game out of the office presentations many adults are used to giving at work by forcing them to speak aloud to the group, making up jokes on the spot based on random images and topics. Shy players may, understandably, choose to opt out. Champ'd Up, meanwhile, risks hurting the feelings of some players -- especially younger ones -- if their drawings aren't voted the best. Still, you always have the option to avoid the games that might not fit with a particular group of players. If you want to entertain a large and/or disparate group of people with some quick, easy-to-learn games that encourage social interaction and help to break the ice, The Jackbox Party Pack 7 is a pretty safe bet.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
