You Don't Know Jack - Sports
*Note: The same strategies applied to the original
You Don't Know Jack game can be used in Sports as well,
such as the following hints & tips;
To skip the explanation of the game, hit the space bar
after you've entered what type of game is being played
(i.e. 7 or 21 question game)
If you're confident in your trivia knowledge, buzz
in as soon as the host starts reading the question.
You then have a few seconds to finish reading the
question and answer. This will put you ahead in the
DO NOT buzz in as soon as the new question comes up
if you try and buzz in before the host starts reading the
question, he will make the question disappear and then make
you try and answer it. Very tough, if not impossible!
Wait and read the clues on the Gibberish questions.
The clues are very helpful in determining what the
jumbled phrase is.
"Screwing Your Neighbor" is a valuable tool in YOU DON'T
KNOW JACK. "Screw" on high value questions (i.e. $2000 for
more) and if it looks like your opponents don't know the
answer, "screw" 'em!
The "Jack Attack". Keep your finger on the buzzer (not
pressing the key, just lightly resting on it). This will
give you a slight time advantage over your opponents.
Buzz-in as soon as you see the corresponding word, but
"remember the clue!!"
Host burns you worse then usual:
Type F**k You (without the asterisks) as your player name, then when
you get a gibberish question, type F**k You (without the asterisks)
to get an even worse response than if you had entered a regular name.
The ultimate response:
Start a three player game, then wait for a gibberish question. Proceed
to buzz in with each player and type F**K You (without the asterisks).
The third time you do this, the host goes on about how he is not putting
up with this and quitting the game. During this, press any key. The host
will say similar to , " Oh no, you're not getting out that easy, this
game is over!". Then, something very funny will happen.
Start a seven question, one player game. Finish the game. Keep pressing
B at the high-score screen and continue to do this during the commercials.
After the first commercial or two, you will be treated to bloopers. The
sounds will play as follows: commercial, blooper, commercial, blooper, etc.
When playing the game on a holiday you will get a special greeting. The
same thing happens early in the morning, late at night, and Friday and
