You Don't Know Jack series

Group Description

A series of games which puts you in the middle of a comedy game show known as "You Don't Know Jack." The central theme of the game is that it combines high culture (art, literature, history, the sciences) and pop culture (television, movies, video games, music, trivia). For example, one question might take Homer the Poet and Homer Simpson and use them to create a question about corporal punishment. Sometimes, however, a specific game in the series may focus on one theme in particular, such as the movies.

Emphasis is placed on the series' humorous appeal, especially with its quick, witty dialog, its sarcastic game show host, and the often bizarre situations that occur on the show itself. The series uses very little visuals and mostly utilizes audio recordings to illustrate the idea that players are on the set of a game show.
