The game with funny and shocking answers to everyday questions is now available for the first time on Switch as a single title. Quiplash, of the giant Jackbox Games, is the home of the party and the hostel since its first PC release in 2015. Moreover, it has become a favourite for banners, especially as traditional encounters in local reception centres are becoming increasingly rare.
Once connected to the selected smartphone, you will receive an unlimited number of anonymous answer tips with up to eight participants. When all answers have been received, two answers are opposite and everyone votes for his or her favorite answer, so you can usually choose the one that’s the most fun. The answer that gets a large number of votes wins the contest and scores points for the total score. The beauty of the Quiplash game lies in the open space, where you search for less correct answers and more answers that will win votes. It’s very similar to a board game like Apples vs. Apples or Superfight, where it is just as important to know the audience and how they will react as everything in the game itself.
If you have the right group of players together, Quiplash is an absolute riot from start to finish. No wonder the name soon became a few banners everywhere. In this way, not only can the sense of humour be easily diverted, but thanks to the public’s sympathy, the audience can also take part in the action. Even if the game is in progress or has already started, people can log in as spectators so that they can sit in the game and award bonus points for their favourite answers. While the competitor only has eight capsules, the Quiplash allows a ridiculous 10,000 spectators to attend each race. If you have a large enough audience, the end result can be determined by your actual audience, the level of interactivity is not so high that the games can be without requirements.
Unfortunately there is no additional content that makes the Quiplash outside the Jackbox Party Pack 3 really worth buying unless you are interested in a single title. Surprisingly, Vanilla Quiplash was released to get its own port, while Quiplash XL and Quiplash 2 were already released in other party packs. Since social distance is always at the forefront of the guardians of culture, something else would have to be done if an online competitive mode were to be created, as has happened with other board games. Although more people participate in these games, large gatherings in real life are at best not considered a health risk. A studio like Jackbox Games, which deals exclusively with board games, may have to look for alternatives if it wants to remain relevant in the future.

Final remarks : GROSS
Five years after its original release, Quiplash is still considered by many to be the jackbox game of choice. His emphasis on creativity and individuality gives him a unique personality, both wise and raw.
