You Don't Know Jack Louder! Faster! Funnier! is the twelfth installment in the You Don't Know Jack series and the eighth general knowledge edition. This edition is the sequel to the Offline edition. It was originally released on March 28, 2000 and is hosted by Schmitty.
Features & Question Types
Louder! Faster! Funnier! is treated as a hybrid of both The Ride and the games that came before it, in that it features episodes based on a given theme but allows players to choose which question they are asked. Beyond that, the game plays virtually the same as Volume 3.
Players take turns picking categories and then answering questions. Each question is worth a different amount of money: $1,000, $2,000 or $3,000 (all values double after Question 7). Players buzz in and then select the answer that they believe is correct. Answering a question correctly will reward you with money amount on offer while getting the question wrong will cost you that amount. Once the final round - the Jack Attack - is complete, the final scores are shown and the player with the most money is the winner.
Players have the ability to "Screw Your Neighbor." If a player buzzes in and presses the 'S' key, they can select a player to "screw," thus forcing them to answer the question even if they don't know the answer. However, if the "screwed" player answers the question correctly, then the player that issued the screw ends up losing money instead.
Below is a list of all special question types and how to play them.
|Dis or Dat ($500)|
|The player that chose the category plays this question type solo. Dis or Dat tasks the player with choosing between two options (or sometimes both) for a given prompt. For example, are Cheerios™ a loopy or flaky cereal? Every correct answer awards $500 while every incorrect answer loses $500. If the player doesn't know the answer, they can skip the current prompt and come back to it later - if they have time.|
|Gibberish Question ($5,000)|
|Gibberish Questions have a nonsense phrase appear that rhymes with the correct answer. As time goes by, the money on offer will go down and the player will receive hints from the host. The first player to buzz in and type the correct answer will win the remaining amount of money, while those that answer incorrectly will lose the money on offer at the time.|
|You're going to be shown an event, such as|
The movie "Child's Play" introduces Chucky, the vengeful killer doll.
This will then be followed by a second event such as
First Barrel of Monkeys™ are stuffed back in a barrel.
You have to decide whether the second event happened before or after the first event... or never! The first player to buzz in on the correct answer earns $1,000. But each time you get it wrong, you lose $1,000 instead.
|Jack Attack ($2,000)|
|The final round. When you see the correct answer, buzz in to score $2,000. But if you guess wrong, you get cash taken away. And don't forget... REMEMBER THE CLUE!|
NOTE: Unlike previous games that allowed you to pick question categories, the Jack Attack is predetermined for each episode.
- Though the game doubles score values on offer after Question 7, it is not declared to be the start of Round 2 by the game.
- This is the first YDKJ game where Schmitty's profanity is censored every time players type "Fuck you" during Gibberish Questions.
