Great party game

Summary: Very fun trivia game for friends. Easy to pick up on the rules and there are about 100 different games loaded on. Very funny puns guaranteed for each game. Its fun because you have to be witty to understand many of the puns but not a trivia wizard. As this game is a couple years old, the online features aren't as available because not as many people are online to play it, but it still very fun nonetheless and is also now at a great value for less than $20.
Summary: This is a great multiplayer game, always good for a laugh. Especially after a few drinks. There is a single player mode, but I wouldn't recommend it. The true fun of this game is in going head to head with somebody else in the room. You need the group environment to fully appreciate the humor and it's just not the same not having somebody next to you to talk trash to as the game goes along.
Summary: It's a fun game. My only beef is that since it seems to make the most sense as a "party game", it might have been nice to allow control from as many different kids of controllers as possible. For example, all you really need to do to play is press 1 of 4 of your primary control buttons (with maybe one other button for "screwing"), and those functions could easily have been mapped to the MOVE motion and/or navigation controllers.
Summary: Always been a great game. Played it for my first time back in 99 on PC at a party. I was very happy to see that they have been releasing updated games over time. The humor is adult based and leads to a lot of good laughs while really helping you realize just how little you know. From the second you start the game, it's one liner after one liner. The intros, credit, instructions, responses etc are all comical and entertain anyone with an IQ higher than room temp.
Summary: I had this game when I was growing up. Back then it was a computer game and everyone had to sit near the computer keyboard in order to buzz in with your assigned keyboard letter. It was so much fun to all be there trying to buzz in first. The game is still so fun and I love the commentary.
Summary: I had the original PC version of this game and then a student of mine tells me that they made a version for the PS3. As soon as I heard that I ordered it. This is a great party game; especially when there's nothing to do but you still want your friends to come over. I would agree with other reviewers about the episode thing: there are 75 episodes and it takes about 15 minutes to get through one episode.
Summary: Jack took a decade off to relax and came back better (and funnier) than ever before! As always with this irreverent trivia party game, playing with friends is an absolute blast. It's also nice how the game goes through all available games before repeating a single game or question. Very refreshing to finally get a trivia game that doesn't ask you the same questions after 2 or 3 plays.
