I've had fun playing this game for over 15 years, and it continues to be fun. I enjoy playing the solo games, but I like "screwing" my friends over and forcing them to attempt to answer quetions they don't know the answers to. Jack Attack is probably the thing I'm best at, both with knowledge and with fast fingers!

Based on the Lite Retail version of the Windows 95 Promoware on the YDKJ Vol.1 Disc, I used to beat the Lite Version Time & Again. Those were good times for me & the best Volume in the YOU DON'T KNOW JACK CD-ROM Trivia Series.

Love the game but in the jack attack, the answers are super tiny, so it's really hard to see them and answer correctly.

Honestly the best party game I've ever played. This is easily the best volume and makes for an awesome drinking game. The hosts constent insults and epic question phrasing make it really REALLY entertaining.

There is nothing quite as fun as gathering friends and/or family and have a go at comedic trivia that's also pretty clever at times, and seeing who can understand what they are asking about. So many good times...

Still one of the best trivia games ever, and on equal footing with Volume 1. The new host isn't as entertaining, but better design and the new Dis or Dat question evens out the value.

The game lives up to its name because I stink. The fact is you have so much fun you don't even care how much you're in the hole. You don't know jack is based on a game show (MAKE A LIVE TV GAME OF IT, WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU PEOPLE) lmao. Get to know the game and play it often. One rule: if you don't know the answers I wouldn't guess. The host is really up for proving the motto.

A great follow up to Vol. 1 XL and another classic PC game. Pretty similar to Vol 1 in terms of design and layout, but if it ain't broke don't fix it. Well worth the price here.

Filled with Nostaligic trivia from the 90s, its the game i remembered as a kid, but fully understanding the jokes and humor this time around makes it even better

Get this version over the newer one!

well i loved the game as retail, when i was young.

now i thought its a nice move from jackbox to publish it on steam.

the sad thing is that they published it without any kind of optimization..

you see the game running in a very tiny window, even if its occupying your whole screen (around the game its just black)
no resolution change, only english language, no steam overlay.

the price is low, but its still not worth it. better get the game as non-steam retail instead.

for steam it gets a "no" from me, even if the game itself is still great.
