Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 2

I’ve long been a fan of the Jackbox Party Pack games. They’re amazing fun; each pack is a full game night for almost any number of players, with the added bonus that participants can use their phones to play the games.

Review: Killer Chambers (PC)

Part of it, I think, is the joy of discovery that you just can’t get with AAA games […]
