Gather ’round the Nintendo Switch, as the next Nintendo Switch Online Game Trials is a fantastic party game! For almost a week, you can try out Jackbox Party Pack 6 for free this month.

Nintendo made the announcement today on their official social media channels.


Games included in Jackbox Party Pack 6:

  1. The popular trivia deathmatch Trivia Murder Party 2 (1-8 players). Try to survive the bizarre new minigames.
  2. The weird word circus Dictionarium (3-8 players). May the funniest definition win.
  3. The hidden identity game Push The Button (4-10 players) . Can you discover the aliens in time?
  4. The comedy contest Joke Boat (3-8 players). Craft one-liners for a cruise ship talent show.
  5. The offbeat personality test Role Models (3-6 players). Find out who you really are. (Or at least what your friends think of you.)

Then, starting on Wednesday, October 13th at 10 a.m. PT, the game will be available to play in its entirety for free. The trial ends on Tuesday, October 19th at 11:59 p.m. PT.
