You Don't Know Jack is an interactive Quiz Game Show that originally came out in the mid 1990's. It combines a unique sense of humor with simplistic game play to provide "contestants" with an experience unlike any other. YDKJ (As it is affectionately known) has been released on several different platforms throughout the years but was mainly a PC / Online presence until now. It is best played with friends or online but either way it's something truly different and for a price of $29.99 USD you can't go wrong.


[top]Tips & Strategies

1. Use multiple controllers often. Since your earnings are cumulative over all players locally, playing with more than one controller will net you more money and ranks than playing with one controller. If you can manage 4 controllers you'll be able to earn over $100,000 per episode and be fully ranked up in 4 -5 episodes. This will also help with the Enscrewsiast trophy as all screws used locally count towards the total needed.

2. ALWAYS, go for the wrong answer of the game. You earn 2x to 4x the amount of money you'd earn otherwise and you won't have to repeat the episode to get the gift from the sponsor for Back Taxes. The best part is everyone that chooses the wrong answer of the game gets the bonus.

3. Play Online while going for Perfect Attendance after episode 30 or so because this will allow you to play episodes and you'll be able to start using your screws and potentially make more money.


[top]Roadmap

1. Start playing the single player right off the bat. Follow the guide for Back Taxes and get all the gifts.

2. Make your way towards 1,000,000aire! and Unicorn while answering questions in the ways needed to get the bronze trophies.

3. Once you earned the two gold trophies you are then clear to go for Slack Attack. Make sure you do this after you get 1,000,000aire! and Unicorn, failing to do so will significantly increase the amount of time and effort you will have to put in to get those 2 trophies. Slack Attack puts you in a pretty deep hole in both the money lost and ranking lost so its best to wait on this.

4. Clean up all the missing single player trophies. Once complete, go online and work on all the online trophies. There aren't many trophies at this point but by playing the single player through you should be somewhat familiar with any online game and with a little luck you'll be able to control where you are in the standings to make sure you earn all the missing trophies.

The DisOrDat is a type of question found at the end of the first round. You will have to pick one category or another based on the clue. You will get 7 clues in a row. For this trophy you have to finish the DisOrDat in 30 seconds or less. This trophy can be earned on an episode you played before as long as you finish in 30 seconds or less.

DisorDat Destroyer
Answer all 7 DisOrDat items correctly.

All you have to do for this trophy is to get all 7 DisOrDat questions correct. This can be done on any episode, in any game type and even on previously played episodes.

DisorDash
Ace a DisOrDat in under 10 seconds.

For this trophy you have to be quick since you have to answer 7 questions in about 9 seconds since the timer starts before the question is read. If you are having trouble with this one just replay a previous episode.

[top]
Jack Attack Dog
Get all 7 Jack Attack questions correct in a multiplayer game without messing up.

As the description states, just get all the questions in the Jack Attack during a multiplayer game right and its yours. Since they say to get it done in a multiplayer game you can get thsi trophy by using 2 controllers and play an offline, local multiplayer game. Start a game with 2 controllers and when it comes time to play the Jack Attack make sure you get all the questions right. You have to answer all the questions the first time the answer appears on the screen. If you choose the right answer the second time through it will not count.

[top]
Taking it From Behind
Come in from behind to win during the Jack Attack.

For this trophy you have to be losing a game going into the Jack Attack. After the Jack Attack is over you will have to win the game. This can be done on any game mode but the easiest way to do it is have 2 controllers. Start a local multi player game and keep your main character within $4,000 or so. I found if you answer correctly with both controllers but have the secondary character answer a little quicker than the other controller will keep them close. Remember the most you can win in the Jack Attack is $28,000 (done perfectly) so if the gap is more then that you'll have to start over.

[top]
Back Taxes
Win all prizes in Episodes 1 - 73.

Every episode in the game has a wrong answered that is sponsored by some company. Each sponsor will give you a gift if you find that wrong answer of the game. Click the spoiler tag to see the list of where you can find the wrong answer of the game in each episode.

[top]
Button Banger
Get a multiple choice question right in the first 2 seconds.

All you have to do is answer a questions within the first 2 seconds of the question being asked. Fairly straightforward but if you are having trouble you can replay a previous episode and answer a question you already know the answer to.

[top]
Smelt the Roses
Get a multiple choice question right in the last 1 second.

Very simple trophy, just wait till there is less than one second left to answer the question and get it right. Soon after your trophy will unlock. This can also be done on an episode you already played so if you are having trouble stick to an episode you already know.

[top]
Menage-a-Quarte
Play a 4- player game online.

For this trophy you have to play an online game with 4 people all the way through the Jack Attack. If anyone drops out before the end this will not unlock. Since most episodes are only 5 - 10 minutes this shouldn't be too bad.

[top]
My First Time
Screw someone for the first time.

You get the ability to use the screw in online or multi player modes. To screw someone just press or before any other players have a chance to buzz in. Choose which player you think would not be able to answer the question and the trophy is yours.

[top]
Virtual Virgin
Answer Correctly after being screwed 5 times.

For this you will have to play online or local multiplayer games. When you are chosen to get screwed just answer the question correctly. Do this 5 times and this is all yours. If you are having trouble you can do this using 2 controllers by playing an episode you already know and screwing your character with the second controller. Answer correctly and repeat 5 times for this trophy.

[top]
Enscrewsiast
Screw 50 times.

You only get screws in multi player and online game modes so you'll have to play 50 games in single player mode and use the screw all 50 times. You can do this with up to 4 controllers locally so if you are having trouble bring in the extra controllers and you'll breeze through this. With 4 controllers you can boost this trophy yourself in 13 local games.

[top]
The Game's Half Full
Play Episodes 1 - 36.

Just as the trophy description states you will have to complete the first 36 episodes. There are no requirements for the episode to count. All you have to do is answer all the questions. Right, wrong or indifferent as long as you get a check on that episode it is done.

[top]
The Game's Half Empty
Play Episodes 1 - 37.

Just as the trophy description states just play the first 37 episodes. There are no requirements for the episode to count. All you have to do is answer all the questions. Right, wrong or indifferent as long as you get a check on that episode it is done. For this specially just answer all the questions in the first 37 episodes and its all yours. This will come one episode after you finish The Game's Half Full.

[top]
Perfect Attendance
Play Episodes 1 - 73.

Finish all 73 episodes and this will pop when you finish the last episode. Again is doesn't matter what happens in the episode, as long as you answer all the questions, you get credit. If the trophy doesn't pop when you finished the Jack Attack on episode 73, go to the episode select screen and see what episodes don't have a check mark next to them.

[top]
Slack Attack
Get -$1,000,000 on a Jack Attack.

This trophy entails you getting to a Jack Attack and loosing $1,000,000. Every question you answer incorrectly is -$4,000 so you need to hit the button 250 times in one episode. This is basically just a spam the button trophy so go to town as long as the right answer is not on the screen. If you answer 3 or 4 questions right you won't have enough time to get to the $1,000,000 mark so you'll have try again.

Warning
Something to note about this trophy is that your winnings are cumulative so you should do this trophy after you get the 1,000,000!aire trophy. If you get this before you earn $1,000,000 dollars you will put yourself in a million dollar hole and need to earn $2,000,000 to get back where you need to be.

[top]
Beat a Winner
Beat Someone with a rating of Unicorn in an online game.

Just as the description states you will have to win a game against someone with a lifetime rating of Unicorn, which is represented by a lifetime rating bar completely full. For this one you should play most of the episodes so when you go online you'll have an edge over the other players. Then when you go online do your best to win matches and hopefully someone you defeat will have a rank of Unicorn.

[top]
Lose to a Loser
Lose an online game to someone with a rating at or below Dullard.

Just as the description states you will have to lose a game to someone with a lifetime rating of Dullard which is represented by a completely empty rating bar. The best way to go about it is just to lose an online game intentionally and hope that someone there is just starting out. This can only be done online so you'll have to cross your fingers.

[top]
Always a Bridesmaid
Come in second place 5 times in online games.

Just as the description states you'll have to come in second place 5 times in online games. The best way to go about this is play with one partner and have them win this way you'll always come in second place. This is generally difficult in 4 player games because the Jack Attack is where games are won and lost so its always anyones game.

[top]
Social Outcast
Finish 5 single player games on Friday or Saturday Nights.

This can be done one of two ways; you can either play 5 single player episodes on Friday or Saturday Night or change the time on your console to a friday or saturday night and play 5 episodes. If you change it to or actually play at 10pm you should be ok.

[top]
Turncoat
Play on July 4th instead of celebrating America.

This is very simple and can be done in one of two ways. You can wait till July 4th and finish one episode or you can change the date on your Playstation 3 to July 4th and finish one episode. You can change the date on your playstation by going to the time and date settings in the settings menu off the XMB. The episode can be replayed or you may choose a new episode to play either way works.

[top]
Quick Draw McDumbass
Choose the wrong answer within the first 3 seconds 10 times.

Just as the description states you have to answer 10 questions wrong within the first 3 seconds of the question being asked. For this you have to be a little quicker than normal since the timer for the question starts a half a second before they finish reading the question to you. You may find it easier if you play an episode that you know the answers to before they finish reading. This way you can answer incorrectly quicker.

[top]
Consolation Trophy
Play 5 hours without getting a single trophy.

Trophies come pretty quickly in this game but this will be one of the last trophies you get. This trophy is based upon time spent with the game on and is not dependent on whether you are active in the game. If you are finding that you are towards the end of the game and you still did not get this you can leave the game on for 5 hours and this will pop. This should be a "progression" trophy since you can play up to over half the game and still have plenty of time to get this. The option is there if you need it.

Thanks to those in the discussion thread that discovered the ability to do it by pausing the game and confirming it works.

[top]
Genius for a Day
Score at least $30,000 above your average.

When you play your first episode you will establish an average for how much you win per episode. The easiest way to get this is to not do very well in your first game and then replay the episode answering everything quickly and correctly. After the second play through of the episode this will unlock. If you wait to earn this trophy and you do well, you may find it difficult to earn $30,000 more than your average. The sooner you get this done the better.

[top]
Overconsumer
Listen to all commercials after one episode.

After you finish an episode the credits begin to roll and commercials are playing in the background. All you have to do is basically listen to all the commercials while the credits are rolling. When the credits are done the commercials stop and you get this trophy.

[top]
Discovered Gauntlet of Fire
Find the very important gauntlet of fire.

This trophy can be earned on Episode 31 Question 7. Answer "WWF, WDW, WWW, WOW". Soon after the trophy is yours.

[top]
Great Crowd
Laugh at an easy joke

This trophy can be earned in Episode 8 Question 4. Answer "Natesbook" and that is all there is to it.
