Use Your Words Preview


If you’re a big fan of the Jackbox Party Pack, then Use Your Words might be the perfect companion game for you and your friends. It uses a similar concept: use your smart devices as controllers to come up with the funniest answers they can. There are a total of four unique mini-games:


  • Sub The Title: Watch a short clip from a foreign film, then write your own subtitle! Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will love making the actors onscreen say whatever they want in a variety of monster movies, martial arts movies, and some just plain weird films from the past.

  • Blank-o-Matic: Fill in the blank to complete the sentence! Instead of waiting to have the funniest card in your hand, write an answer that matches your sense of humor! We’ve hired some of the funniest writers around to set up the jokes perfectly so that even Grandpa can crack off a zinger or two.

  • EXTRA, EXTRA!: Write a hilarious caption or clickbait headline for a ridiculous photo, in a take on the classic “caption this” game!

  • Survey Says: Go with your gut in this rapid-fire game show style “lightning round”!



Although the game is rated M for Mature, you’ll be able to select a “family mode” to filter out adult and controversial prompts, but what’s the fun in that? Just like Jackbox, you can share you room code online so spectators can watch and vote for their favorite answers.

Use Your Words has been released on other platforms for $14.99, and we expect it will be a similar price for the Nintendo Switch. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more!
