Jackbox Games Inc. is seeing a surge in users as its modern twist on retro-style family game night has filled a void brought about by social distancing rules.

With Covid-19 restrictions prohibiting trivia night at bars or generational gatherings for Monopoly marathons, Jackbox is seeing more people turn to its computer-based games designed for large groups of people. Thanks to new titles and stay-at-home orders, the company just had its best year ever and is on track to double the number of players to 200 million by the end of the year.
