Windows 95 Compatibility Mode + 640x480 Screen Resolution + No Desktop Composition + No Visual Themes + No Display Scaling + Administrator Mode + Smartass Host + Mixture of Shakespeare and Scooby-Doo = Instant Memories of 1995.

See? I made it easy for you folks who complain about the game looking small on your fancy-pants 1080p displays. C:

The original game that started it all in 1995. Great for those times in which you're bored and wanna have fun. You're a bit short of time? Try the 7-question game. You wanna do your homework later? Do as much 21-question games as you can. Have fun!

A weird Quiz show thingy, It works quite well I guess but majority of the questions are Americanised, for example, peoples names, sayings, places...

Still the best, or one of the best in my opinion.

However--on a side tangent--one thing that gets me between older and newer versions (like YDKJ 2011) is that 20 years ago they were somehow able to make a game with random questions every match and yet for some reason are unable to accomplish this with newer games, which are the same questions every match, every round. The only disappointment with this title, really, is that everyone has to huddle around a keyboard. Basically newer games with their multiplayer support and this game's randomization every play would be aces.

What can I say, You Don't Know Jack is an absolute classic. The only problem is that being from the mid 90's, some of the questions are outdated. However if you're knowledgeable about that decade, grab it and the other YDKJ games and enjoy.

A classic Promoware Irreverent CD-ROM Trivia Title from my childhood back during the Win95 Era. I always played the Lite Version of YDKJ Vol. 2 back then.

The jokes are awesome in this game. Most of the questions are impossible but the comments on your wrong answers (and sometimes even to your correct answers) are hilarious. It's a classic quiz game. Extremely fun to play with friends. You're in for a lot of laughs.

To make this clear, this is not for the 2011 game. Instead, it covers the original 1995 game. For those that are not familiar with the series, how the game works is that the host will read a question and give four possible answers. If you think that you know the answer, buzz in and answer. While this sounds like your typical trivia game, this is far from the truth.

One thing unique to the game is that the players receive screws. If a question appears that it looks like another player does not know, you can use the screw to “screw your opponent” forcing them to answer. If somebody has the lead, using them is a good way to try to catch up. However, if they know the answer, not only will they gain money, but also you will screw yourself and lose money instead. They may be screws, but that risk make them double-edged sword instead.

Another difference from a traditional trivia game is that the host wants action. If one player has a big lead but nobody tries to answer the question, the host will not be happy. When that happens, the host will comment on the leader’s cowardice and gets the audience involved. How can there be an audience in a video game is a mystery. When they get involved, they will say, “Don’t be a wimp!” forcing the leader to answer anyway. If you are trailing and know this, intentionally not answering is both advantageous as well as funny watching the leader’s reaction.

Visually, this is the game’s biggest weakness. Most of the time, the only things to see are some faded text, the current question, and the player scores. The only real animation worth watching is seeing what happens to your icon when the score changes. While this sounds strange, a blind person can play this game with a person that can see without any problems. With almost nothing to see, not even the host, there is little reason to watch the screen. Since this is a trivia game, making a stage like in Jeopardy! or Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? would have made the game more interesting to look at.

However, this is not a game about the visuals. Being that this was one of the first CD games, they crammed it with tons of dialog. That dialog is what makes the game fun. The host always has something interesting to say throughout the question. Even with the categories for the questions, it gets you interested in what it might be. In one case, in the category is “The Fruits in Your Looms”, they ask, “Which of these fruits derives from the Aztec word meaning testicle?” Just the fact that they would create questions using such seemingly unrelated items makes each of the questions interesting to hear. In the case of the mentioned question, the correct answer is avocado. When it comments about it and guacamole can make people burst out in laughter. When the comments are strong enough, do not be surprised if a break is required to recover from the laughter.

Considering that the game has hundreds of questions like the one above, this makes a great party game. Just remember that the game really works only when played with others. Since the game offers no computer opponents, it is not the same without live competition. While the humor is there, without competition, the game does not have the same appeal.

There is one final thing to remember. When the game wants you to type in your answer, tell the game, “F%¢& Y@#”. All three players should do this. You will love how the host reacts. What the host does to you, not so much.

For a game that’s just shy of 20 years old, this is proof-positive that some things are timeless. As a long-time owner (yeah, I got it when it originally came out in 1995 on CD-ROM...), I can truly say the charm remains, as does the irreverence. Despite the years, the sarcasm and prodding by the “host” is just as relevant now as it was then. I always leave the game with a smile on my face.

Not only does the Steam re-release introduce a whole new generation to YDKJ, but it ditches the CD-ROM and related issues (Try grabbing the original disc and installing it on a modern, 64-bit O/S. Won’t happen without a LOT of work)...

My only real gripe is that the game is perpetually stuck at a 640x480 resolution, and going full-screen requires a manual change of the PC’s resolution to 720x480

**P.S. DO NOT forget to snag the others in the franchise. They're worth every penny!

Going back to You Don't Know Jack after so many years and sequels, it becomes clear how little the formula has changed over the almost two decade history of the franchise. That shouldn't be taken as an insult to the series, but a compliment to just how timeless and clever the original still is.

If you've never played YDKJ, the gist is that it's a game show in your living room (or wherever your computer might resides. A raunchy, hilarious, shamelessly offensive, and remarkably clever trivia game that never misses a chance to break the forth wall to insult you, as it simultaneously pretends to congratulate your correct answer. The developers clearly loved what they were doing and that shows through in an abundance of little touches that add so much, from the fake commercials to the terrible names they bestow upon you, to the unrivaled abuse of pop culture in every question and the effortless delivery by your host Cookie. If you aren't laughing, you may very well be dead inside.

The only "con" I can give YDKJ is that given its age, some of the questions and references are a bit dated. Those without ample knowledge of the 80's and 90's might find themselves a bit lost at times, so if you are hoping for something a bit more relevant one of the more recent games may be a better choice. Everyone else shouldn't hesitate to pick this up, grab two friends (and some drinks while you're at it), and get ready to burst into tears as you learn:

You Don't Know Jack!

This is pretty fun, but there are a fair few questions that seem pretty specific to American TV and pop culture. Fellow Europeans be warned.
