Have you ever watched an episode of Antiques Roadshow and thought, “This is great, but I wish it were competitive, magical, a video game, and something I could do from the comfort of my own home with friends and loved ones?”
Well, good news, weirdo! Your highly-specific prayers have been answered, in the form of Junktopia – the fourth game joining The Jackbox Party Pack 9!
Junktopia is a joke-driven writing game where you win by building funny backstories for unusual objects. As you enter the world of Junktopia, you and your fellow players have all been turned into frogs by a strange wizard, Nikolas Knackalus – but don’t worry, he’ll turn you right back! If you can turn the most profit by reselling some strange antiques.
You’re going to get the chance to buy evocative, beautiful, and frankly weird pieces from the shop, and then use your creative minds to write a few hilarious facts about them. The group will then appraise the objects based on their new backstories; more votes equals more value added.
Generate some laughs, rank your favorites, get some cool cash for your cute quips, and voila! You’ll be back in your non-frog bods in no time. Hopefully.
Will you spend big on a frighteningly funny figurine? Or buy low on a humble hat, and let your jokes do the talking? As they say in Junktopia…there are lots of ways to win when you’ve got nothing to lose!
