Hello, my name is Alex this is one of my first FAQS this is a very
short FAQ because...well it's a trivia game. I loved all the You Don't
Know Jack games, but for some reason I liked this one the best. I hope
this FAQ comes in handy for you! Well until next time see yeah!
=2. Version History=
This is my first version covering all the questions of the game.
I added the new screwing section along with that I fixed some grammar
and spelling mistakes.
This is my last version for the game. Sorry. I have fixed the Three Way
section thanks to Wan Hazmer. I hope this comes in handy for you. Until
the next FAQ...See Yeah!
MAN DID I HAVE GRAMMAR MISTEAKS! I had to update to fix some of them. I
hope this is my final version.
Let me start off by explaining the buzzers.
1 Player Game
First Player-B (Pretty sad that only one person is playing a trivia
game...just kidding I do it all the time!)
2 Player Game
First Player- Q
Second Player- P
3 Player Game
First Player- Q
Second Player- B
Third Player- P
I recommend that you use the stickers that came with the game to mark
=4. Category Question=
This question is at the beginning of the game and decides the category
you will be playing in; for example if the bellow was your question and
you picked answer one you would be playing about adding if you picked
answer two you would be playing about subtracting. There are 2 answers.
There is no strategy I can give you here just cross your fingers and
hope you get a good category.
What is your favorite math skill you learned?
=5. Name Question=
This question will appear every so often and it decides your name; if
it asks you a question where you should be able to type your name then
it's a name question. The following question is a sample of a name
How many languages do you speak?
If you chose one then your name would be American.
If you chose two then your name would be Bilingual.
If you chose three then your name would be Weirdo.
Again there is no strategy for this type of question just answer
honestly. (Honesty is the best policy and also the funniest...unless of
course you broke a window.) :(
=6. Multiple Choice Questions=
These are the most common questions you will see throughout the game.
They ask you a question and give you four answers to choose from, one
of those questions is right and the rest are wrong. The following is an
What is the shape of King Arthur's Table?
2. Round (correct answer)
If you chose the second answer then you would get the amount of money
the question was worth, however, if you get it wrong then you lose the
amount that the question is worth. You only have one shot at the
You should answer the question if you think you know it, the money
value may or may not be big, it depends on how much money you chose
before the question. Don't answer the question if you absolutely don't
know it. This is the only question type where you can screw people.
=7. Road Kill=
This is a cool category; in this type of question you are apparently
driving a car. They will give you two phrases, words will fly by in the
middle, when you see the word that matches the phrases immediately hit
your buzzer. For example:
Color of grass. The ________ Mile.
Every time you get one of these right you get $500, and for every one
wrong you lose $500. At the end it will ask you what all the correct
answers have in common, so if the answers had to do with shapes then as
soon as you see Types Of Shapes fly by then you immediately hit your
buzzer. You only have one try on the final question but you have as
many tries as you want on the basic questions.
Only answer the ones you definitely know. Make sure you hit your buzzer
immediately because first off the answer may change very fast or you
opponent may buzz in before you. The last questions money value is the
amount you chose at the beginning of the question. (I love the color
This is question that will appear every so often. There will be a song
at the beginning where it will tell you what your five-letter word is.
(No it's not Bingo.) As soon as you see the first letter of the correct
answer lit up buzz in to score $500, but be careful, you lose $500 for
each question you get wrong.
The Bingo category will give you a Phrase like The City Where N.Y.P.D.
Blue Is Filmed. If your word is RHINO then as soon as you see the
letter N lit up buzz in immediately. (Of course the correct answer is
New York City.) Now at the bottom of your money you should see the
letter N light up. As soon as you collect all five letters you will get
the bonus. The bonus is the amount of money you selected at the
Don't buzz in unless you know it and don't allow yourself more the five
seconds at the beginning of each question to figure out the answer. If
you lose $500 because you missed one over a silly mistake, buzz in
again when the correct letter is lit to get your money back. You must
buzz in very quickly because the letters change very fast and your
opponent will probably be Speedy Gonzalez and want to buzz in fast too.
=9. Gibberish Question=
Boy do I hate these questions, thank goodness they don't appear to
often. You will see a phrase in gibberish and it's your job to
translate the gibberish into English. The following is an example
Vitsa Itsveryverywere Yous Hant Tsummee.
If you know what the phrase is saying than buzz in and answer the
question if not then a clue will appear soon, and it should help you
out. But this is a warning the money goes down (that's why the money
was so high if you were wondering) very fast so don't wait to long. The
correct answer is to the example question was:
Visa it's everywhere you want to be.
Obviously the question will sound like the answer. The money at the
beginning is very high and can make someone go out or into debt. Don't
buzz in quickly because your answer is probably wrong wait until at
least one clue. The amount of money is the amount you chose at the
=10. Fill In The Blank=
These questions are extremely hard and they are fill in the blank
questions. (You should know what a fill in the blank question is so I'm
not going to show an example.)
Unless you are sure you know it don't buzz in. These questions are very
hard and can be worth some big dough. The amount of money is the amount
you chose at the beginning.
=11. Dis Or Dat=
This is a one-player question round where it will give you a word and
the player must select one of the choices. Let's say the category
question was: Is this a famous President or Cartoon Character? It will
show you a word like Bugs Bunny you would either hit:
2. Cartoon Character
Of course the correct answer is number two. You get the amount of money
you chose at the beginning if you get it right, and you lose the amount
of money you chose at the beginning if you get it wrong. If you don't
know just hit number four to skip, but you will have to come back to
your skipped questions once your done with your other ones.
The person who chose the amount of money at the beginning will be
playing this round. If you don't know it just guess because if you skip
and you run out of time you get it wrong anyway. You have about a
minute to answer all of the seven questions so think fast! The Money
you chose at the beginning is a very small amount but it can add up if
you get all the questions or most of the questions right.
=12. Three Way?=
After finally getting an e-mail and playing the game over and over
again I have finally come to a conclusion. There are no Three Way
questions in this game.
I would like to thank Wan Hazmer for helping with this.
=13. Buzzing in to soon=
If you buzz in to soon (before you can see the answers) it will ask you
to select an answer from a choice of wrong answers, this is a good way
to LOSE money. So don't buzz in until you can see the answer.
=14. Jack Attack=
The last question will be a Jack Attack where it will give you a clue
and then a word comes up for example: if the clue was Cartoons And
There Shows and you saw the word Bugs Bunny come up in yellow then in
red you saw Tiny Toons you know NOT to buzz in, but if you see the word
Loony Toons in red then you know to buzz in.
When you see the word buzz in immediately and get the amount you chose
at the beginning, if you get it wrong you will have more chances to get
your money back of course you lose money each time you get it wrong.
After a certain amount of answers the yellow word disappears and you
will have to go through the other questions before they ask you that
question again. After seven of these questions the game will end, the
player with the highest score wins! If you were playing alone then your
goal was to get into the top ten.
This is a brief strategy on how to screw people, if you see the
question but you don't see the answers do not buzz in because then you
will have to choose from a wrong set of answers. (Look back in the
buzzing in too soon part of the FAQ on what that is.) If you see the
questions and the money value is high buzz in immediately and keep
pounding the S key to cover up the questions and answers this way your
opponent can't even see the answers or question. But be prepared if
your opponent gets it right then you lose the money instead of your
opponent. If you are very far ahead then I don't suggest you screw but
if you are far behind I suggest you do.
