Jackbox Games has yet another new game reveal coming to The Jackbox Party Pack 6, as we get a look at their latest creation, "Role Models". This is one of those games where you may have an idea of who you think you are, but do you have any idea what others think of you? This is your weird and funny way to find out as 3-6 players sit in a lab and find out what everyone else thoughts are on their personality in the most unscientific and weird way possible. Check out more about the game and the trailer here as we get another cool Jackbox Party Pack original.
In Role Models, you and your friends become guinea pigs for a mad scientist studying human nature. Just choose a category, like Alice in Wonderland, then match each of the players (including yourself) to a "role" within that category. For example, your carefree buddy might be the Mad Hatter, and the creepy weirdo of the group might be the Cheshire Cat. If your test subjects are split on who's who, tied players perform a tiebreaker experiment tailored specifically to that role to determine who truly deserves the title.
If you don't know anything about these characters, don't worry. There are plenty of categories to choose from, including ones that have nothing to do with pop culture, like "Excuses for Being Late," "Deepest Fears," and "Reasons Why You Crapped Your Pants."
As you earn more roles, Role Models begins to hone in on which characteristics fit you best: if different categories peg you as both a show-off and an introvert, you'll face a challenge, and your fellow lab rats will make the final call. The game awards you with delicious "science pellets" for voting with the majority and winning tiebreaker games, but the real payoff is seeing your final master role, made up of all the previous roles you've earned in the experiment. If you got Captain America, Pikachu, and "slept through my alarm," you might be crowned the "Lazy Electric Patriot" of your friend group. And once it's official, there's no escaping it. That's science, baby!
