Make Everyone Happy With This Easy Holiday Party Game

The party scientists at Jackbox Games have created dozens and dozens of options for you and your loved ones to try this holiday season. We’ve got trivia, we’ve got drawing, we’ve got hidden identity games galore. It can be overwhelming to pick the right game to start with. I’m here to offer up a humble suggestion that has been a surefire hit for me and my pals: Fibbage Enough About You in The Jackbox Party Pack 9

One of my favorite things about playing our last iteration of Fibbage was a new gameplay mode called Fibbage Enough About You. In Fibbage Enough About You, which I will refer to with the super-smooth acronym EAY from now on, the game becomes all about the group you’re playing with!

I don’t like:

  • Awkward silence as I scramble for my next conversation topic

I do like:

  • Having a bank of fun facts and anecdotes to pull from when conversing with friends or family members who I don’t see very often

With all of this in mind, Fibbage EAY is positively perfect for me and mine and hopefully you and yours as well! 

How the Game Works

In the classic game of Fibbage, players are given a trivia question with a missing blank that completes the fact. Each player puts in a convincing word or phrase to stump the rest of the group. Then, all answers (including the true answer) are presented and everyone votes for what they think the correct answer is. It’s a rad game of bluffing and trivia and frankly, it’s all you need for a great night.

What if you turn that concept on its head and make it about a beloved subject: YOU? In Fibbage EAY, everyone answers a prompt that reveals something about themselves and then the group takes turns inputting answers and guessing which is the truth. 

Here are some examples of Fibbage EAY in action during one of our team meetings:

It’s a great game for learning more about the group you’re playing with. It cuts through the typical conversation points you’ll go to naturally: work, life updates, weather, etc. You’ll finish the game full of questions to keep conversation going long after the game has ended. 

Get Started at Your Holiday Party

Fibbage EAY is a playable mode in The Jackbox Party Pack 9. The Jackbox Party Pack 9 is available on major digital platforms including Steam, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and more.
