December, the month that brings the family together for gift giving, delicious dinners, and… intense gaming! From bomb diffusion to cooking, trivia to goofy world building, we have something for everyone. From now through December 10 you can save up to 70% on 50 great games in the ID@Xbox Party Time Sale. Grab a few friends and get ready to laugh, scream and dance your way through the holidays with some of these favorites.
The Jackbox Party Pack 4 (30% off) One of the quintessential Xbox One party games, The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a must-have title for every host. This pack features the blanking fun sequel Fibbage 3 and its new game mode, Fibbage: Enough About You; the web-based frame game Survive the Internet; the spooky date-a-thon Monster Seeking Monster; the deranged debate match Bracketeering; and the one-up art game Civic Doodle. The series offers a unique twist to traditional console games as you use your phones or tablets as controllers and play with up to 16 players, plus an audience of up to 10,000.
Ultimate Chicken Horse (40% off) Ultimate Chicken Horse takes the phrase building the plane while flying it to a whole new level. The game is a party platformer where you and your friends build the level as you play, placing deadly traps before trying to reach the end of the level. If you can make it but your friends can’t, you score points! Play online or locally with your animal buddies and experiment with a wide variety of platforms to find new ways to mess with your friends. If you like messing with your friends this is the game for you!
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes (25% off) Another unique take on traditional gaming in Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: the experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast! The ultimate team building exercise where communication breakdowns equal BOOM.
Use Your Words (50% off) A fill-in-the-blank game? Yes, please! Use Your Words is a game that invites players to respond to a variety of mini-games and prompts with the funniest answers they can think of! Players play using their phones and tablets as controllers, making game-play seamless and quick to pick up. Players who get stumped can use one of the hidden “House Answers” to lay a trap for their fellow players once it’s time for everyone to vote for their favorite. This is a great game to get everyone in the room laughing.
The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor (40% off) Two words that you never would expect to see in the same sentence when describing a game: RPG & Dancing. The Metronomicon sees you take control a party of eight new masters of the “rhythmic combat arts” to wage musical warfare against a multitude of dance-mongering fiends. Control up to four concurrent heroes as they cast powerful spells, buff their teammates, and beat down their enemies with a variety of magical loot and groovy dance moves. The effectiveness of your team is all in the rhythm. If DDR met Final Fantasy you would get Metronomicon and it’s awesome!
Overcooked! (75%) This game will get you shouting with your friends at the top of your lungs about chopped lettuce and you will be all the better for it. Overcooked! is a chaotic couch co-op cooking game for one to four players. Working as a team, you and your fellow chefs must prepare, cook, and serve up a variety of orders before time runs out and the buying customers storm out in a huff. Sharpen your knives and dust off your chef’s whites, there isn’t mushroom for error and the steaks are high in these crazy kitchens! A must-have game the whole family can enjoy.
This is just a small sample of all the great games on sale from December 4 – 10. If you’re looking for an excuse to put away that old board game from 50 years ago, fight for your right to party! See the full list of ID@Xbox Party Time Sale games at Xbox.com.
