The idea for You Don't Know Jack began while That's a Fact, Jack! The game's title comes from the less vulgar version of the phrase «You don't know jack shit.» Jellyvision's website has this explanation as to why You Don't Know Jack was made: «Way back in the early 90s, Jellyvision decided to test the waters of mainstream interactive entertainment by beginning a partnership with Berkeley Systems, of»Flying Toasters" fame.
Berkeley Systems asked us if we could apply the concepts of a game show to an adult trivia game.
The audio during this segment includes rehearsing singers, a busy producer, and a harassed studio manager/host.
The only graphics are a large «On Air/Stand By» sign in the middle of the screen, visual representations of the players' button assignments, and a box for name entry.
Instead of random questions, players 'buzz in' to set the amount of money the question is worth.
In 2012, Jackbox Games developed and published a social version of the game on Facebookwith cross-platform versions subsequently released for i OS, Android and Kindle.
Each has a humorous title that has some connection to the topic of the corresponding question.
After a short animated introduction, which is often accompanied with a sung jingle about the question number, the host asks the question.
There are occasionally other question types offered (see below).
In multi-player games, each player is allowed one chance to «screw» an opponent in each half of a full game, or once in an entire short game.Since no one at Jellyvision at the time actually liked trivia games, we tried to figure out how to make trivia questions fun and engaging to us.When we realized that it was possible to ask about both Shakespeare and Scooby-Doo in the same question, YOU DON' T KNOW JACK was born." Gameplay The game can be played by one, two, or three players.In a 21-question game, there is a brief intermission after the tenth question.
