Classic "Jack" and though campy, though somewhat expected, it is challenging, funny and entertaining all at once. That is what "YDKJ" is all about!

Headrush is considered one of the "b a s t a r d children" alongside The Lost Gold in the YDKJ series. The primary audience for this game is aiming for teenagers back in the 90's, which contains some educational questions (like Vitamin A, elements and fish eggs) mixed in with pop culture references (like South Park, Buffy, Hanson) alongside with the classic YDKJ humor we've seen over the past 18 years. Many questions are too easy to awnser, so you could breeze through an entire game within 7 minutes. Bob, the host, in my opinion is a good host, but not as funny as Cookie and hell of a lot better than Schmitty from The Lost Gold. The question transitions are pretty entertaining to watch, with the animation resembling the work of John K (creator of Ren and Stimpy) and other styles like anime. This is the trivia game that represents a staple of the late 90's and it has an undeniable charm to it. Not the best in the series, but no matter what, I recommend Headrush to test your knowledge of 90's pop culture.

Out of all the gamesin the YDKJ Classic Pack, this game is the best. Yes, the Jack Attack is called the Head Rush for no reason, and the screws are replaces with Chatters, but the questions are fun to answer. Get it now. You'll love it.

Not originally labelled as a You Don't Know Jack game, Head Rush was meant for a younger audience. The questions are much more simple than regular YDKJ games (which planet is closest to the sun? REALLY?), but you've still got a basic YDKJ game here, ♥♥♥♥ jokes and all. Play this one with people who are really bad at trivia. At least they can say "man, I knew that one!"

The YDKJ for the kids. I don't like the animations or avatars. Still classic humor.

Finally, YDKJ gets a 1990's Teen Game Show Makeover. It's HeadRush Time! And best of all, instead of using Screws, you get to use Dentures to bite your opponents by Pressing "Spacebar" rather than the "S Key".

You can thank me later once you get this Wild & Crazy Teen Game Show.

Game has no sound, some of the gameplay and ALL of the humor relies on the sound. Unless Jackbox games fixes this issue, I can not recommend this. Shame too, YDKJ was one of my favourites when I was a kid. If I could rate all of the, at once, I would probably downvote them all apart from volume 6 since it is the ONLY one to have sound for me.

This one is the best, out of playing all the you dont know jack, Headrush, is easily ths best, the questions, gameplay, extra side questions, are just slightly better than the rest.
