‘The Jackbox Party Pack 6’ Reveals ‘Dictionarium,’ Coming This Fall

2 min read

Create definitions for totally made up words this fall on PC and major consoles and digital platforms

Jackbox Games has opened the book on the second ridiculously fun party game coming to The Jackbox Party Pack 6 this fall: DictionariumDictionarium serves up piping-hot, never-before-seen words and it’s your job to define them.

What’s a “blarnkt” — a type of fungus? The sound a sick pigeon makes? A stew served at weddings where the couple doesn’t really love each other? Don’t ask us, it’s up to you!

The definition with the most votes wins, but you’re not off the hook yet! You’ll also have to come up with a synonym and use the word in a sentence. By the end, you and your friends will have created entirely new dictionary entries. Dictionarium supports 3-8 players and an audience of thousands of word-lovers.

Dictionarium joins returning champ Trivia Murder Party 2 as the first titles revealed for The Jackbox Party Pack 6. The most frequently requested sequel of all the Jackbox Party Pack games, Trivia Murder Party 2 is a deviously funny trivia game where getting questions wrong leads to fighting for your life in a variety of absurd and challenging mini-games.

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is expected to launch this fall on PC, consoles and major digital platforms.

Jackbox Games, formerly Jellyvision Games, is a developer and publisher of party games on major gaming platforms and home entertainment devices. The studio is best known for comedic party games like YOU DON’T KNOW JACK, FibbageQuiplash and Drawful. Jackbox Games “makes the world’s best party games” according to Business Insider.
