If you don't got any YDKJ yet, skip this one and head straight for the fourth. It's a billion times better.

This game uses the same Engine as the Playstation Verison of YDKJ. A decent Third Volume of YDKJ, now with 75% More Silly Wrong Answers, A Three-Way Bonus Round, Special Guest Host Questions & The Impossible Questions. Plus this is one of the Sierra On-Line Labels of my favorite YDKJ series.

If you ever played YDKJ on Playstation 1, this is the game it's based off of. Protip: Go find the EXE and set it to XP compatibility mode with forced fullscreen 640x480.

This is the sort of game that berates you for playing alone on a Friday night, then leaves you $10,000 in debt because you ♥♥♥♥ed up a question about fictional characters and their underpants.

I legitimately wouldn't have it any other way.

Oh, Jack, where did you go wrong with 3? It's slow, the bad jokes are really just bad and it isn't as entertaining... Did I mention slow? you feel like the game is dragging and just don't want to play 3. All my opinion, but I would skip this one..

This game was my childhood and it is still just as fun today. I love Cookie (the host) and all of his crazy antidotes. If you want a crazy, party type, quiz show game, this is for you. It's even fun to play alone.

The second or third most-popular version of the Irreverent Quiz Show Party Game, YDKJ Volume 3 is a classic. The host of this one is Cookie Masterson, heavily considered the most popular host of the series. However, it's not my favorite. It's still the classic YDKJ formula, which isn't bad since you get to choose your categories, the later Volume 4: The Ride, 5th Dementia, and YDKJ 2011 all outshine it. It's still a fun game, what with the Three-Way Question and Impossible Questions. DO pick this one up.

Out of all the YDKJs, Volume 3 has to be my favorite one. This one's before they changed the format in Vol. 4 The Ride, back when you could play a 7 or 21 question game. Oh, and Cookie Masterson is the best YDKJ host. EVER.

The first version in the series with some major changes and new features. New questions, new modes (like three way bonus), new jokes, and they even freshened up the paint on this one.
