Description

You Don't Know Jack: Volume 3 is a humorous, sarcasm-laced trivia game for up to three players that plays like a parody of the Jeopardy television game show.

The players compete in either 9 or 21 question games and the person with the most money at the end wins. Questions are arranged in categories and all have a time limit. The player will find multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and other special situation questions such as rhyming, jumbled words, as well as sound and picture questions. The final question is always the Jack Attack which is matching up words that fit the clue.

This third installment of the series adds new categories, questions, and features.

Trivia

The game checks your systems clock and calender when it starts. It makes fun comments about these. Play at 2 am it says "wow up late arn't we." It comments if it is Christmas, Martin Luther King's birthday, Flag day, or any major holiday. Play on New Year Eve and the game asks if you don't have something better to do.
