In, You Don't Know Jack Volume 2 you and up to two friends compete in an irreverent game show-like competition testing your knowledge of pop culture, history, grammar, and other subjects common of trivia games. Players can choose to play either a 7- or 21-question game.
The typical type of question asked is that of the multiple choice variety (i.e. "If sitcoms were single-celled organisms, the process of creating a spin-off would be called what? (1) peristalsis (2) mitosis (3) celodivesis (4) cloning"), but there are other types as well. Fans of the original will remember the Gibberish Questions, where the contestants must be the first to rhyme a common phrase with a nonsensical one. New to this version are DisOrDats (one player must categorize a clue as relating to one of two totally unrelated topics), Celebrity Collect Calls (featuring such stars as Dana Carvey, Dennis Miller, and Phyllis Diller), Whatshisnames (What's his name, in other words), and Picture Questions.
If players are stumped and feel their competitors may be as well, they have the option to "screw" their opponents once per round, forcing an opponent to answer the question. The game concludes with a fast-paced lightning round called the "Jack Attack" in which players race to their buzzers to match a random word or phrase with the selected category. When it's all said and done, though, even the winner will be told by the hilariously sarcastic host, "You don't know Jack!" ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
