I bought the YDKJ bundle last time it was on sale a few months ago. I play a lot of traditional board games with my friends and I thought these games would be fun and let us make fun of each other. Unfortunately, and I'm really not sure why, maybe I'm just 10 years too late to the party, but no one ever wants to play them. I bet you'll find the same. So, sure buy it if you like playing by yourself.

Unless you have 20/20 vision, I wouldn't even consider buying this game. YDKJ comes with absolutly no resolution settings. It's all pre rendered at like 640x480, and looks awful. Try going fullscreen and it's still 480p. The rest of the screen is just black. This resolution problem also applies to every other YDKJ game out there. My girlfriend and I have to smush our faces against the screen just to read the questions. Sometimes the mini games contain small font that becomes almost invisible. There has to be similar games out there to YDKJ. Go buy one of those!

It's the worst of the JACK's in every way. Jack Attack answers are also disproportionately the first one for some reason. It's a shame, because I like this host and his work on YDKJ 5 isn't on Steam (he does have a stint in YDKJ 4 though.)

Its main downfall is that it takes itself a little too unseriously, making the presentation sloppy. It's still enjoyable, but not recommended.

Meh. It was okay. The pirate theme gets old quickly, the narrator is trying too hard. The game runs on 640x480. Unless you have a netbook you'll need to use some sort of software or use your monitor settings to make anything viewable. The trivia is terrible. The only reason I tried playing this one is because the latest one is no longer with us, and this is the latest one that isnt, uh, down. The trivia is hard, sometimes in a good way, sometimes the other way around. One of the terrible questions was "What now, Mad Cow?" and you had to answer either "It was the infected grass I ate!" "It was the infected feed I ate!" "It was the infected bug I ate!" and "It was the indected corn I ate!". Guess what the answer was? The "Infected feed". WHAT!!?! IT was because Mad Cow disease came from cow feed. How the heck was I supposed to know thats what it was asking!?!?! At the end of the day, if you are good at trivia, and like YDKJ, I can reccomend it. If there was a way to put a middle ground, I would.

This is the first YDKJ game that I regret playing. Not just buying, but playing. It didn't cost me much, since I got it on a sale, and it doesn't take up a whole lotta space on my hard drive (though I'll be uninstalling it shortly), but... wow. This would have been bad by 1995 standards. Every You Don't Know Jack Game is better than this, including the one they recently featured on Facebook. (That one might still be around, for all I know, in which case, I reecommend it over this.) I don't normally care to write negative reviews like this, but I really feel the need to warn people away from this title. Not one single aspect of it made me laugh, smile, or chuckle, and the Jack Attack question I tried was simply "what is the __th letter of the alphabet?" No joke. [That might make for a mildly amusing competition to see who among three people could name 'B' as the 2nd letter of the alphabet first, but in single-player mode it is adding insult to injury.) I *might* try it oncee more, to see if the first round was a fluke, but I doubt it. It really left a bad taste in my mouth, and no amount of cheesy pirate-themed bookending can change that. [Note: I suspect this was an early online version of YDKJ that has been repurposed as an offline game. It's the only possible explanation for the horrible sound quality and relatively non-existent production values.] TL;DR: Let this Lost Gold remain buried, otherwise, "Fairly warned, be ye, says I."

YDKJv6 is the worst of the JACKs by far. Tinny sound, ugly art direction, limit of 7 questions in a game, moronic pirate theme, and painfully unfunny. Not even worth installing if you bought the JACK pack.

I feel really disappointed after buying this. I thought it would be a straight up trivia game I could play with a couple of part on the couch using big screen. It isn't at all. It's an awful technical experience from 1995/2003. Do not buy this game if you want a fun time unless you love unreadable text and annoying voice-overs.


1. The latest game in the series on Steam is Vol 6, from 2003. Vol 1 is from 95, so expect the questions to be contemporary to then. The questions are also very US centric, which is a bit unfortunate if you're from another country.
2. You can't skip the intros on first place, which is especially annoying on 6 as it's got some boring pirate cosplay.
3. It entirely uses the keyboard. You can't rebind the keys. If you want to use a controller you need to use an external device such as joy2key.
4. Be ware: It's only 1,2, or 3 players.
5. There's basically no other options
6. Most of the questions and rounds are prefixed by an annoying, not-funny, try-hard voice over that you can't skip really skip. At least with the questions you can see the text and interrupt him. But then you have to listen to the quips over the answers.

and most of all:

It takes up the full screen, but only displays the actual game in a 640x480 rect in the middle of the screen. The rest of the screen is black. It is not proper full screen in the slightest. This is a complete waste of screen space for both monitors and TVs.


On the other hand: The questions are ok, if you're an American from the year 2000.

A great time capsule from my youth, but the screen is unnecessarily small and the game can't take advantage of a larger audience at all. Fun to play, but not worth full price.
