A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Kids can learn about a wide range of trivia subjects, including film, television, sports, and current events. They will be tasked with accessing that knowledge quickly and applying answers to questions in a timely manner because the games are fast paced, offering an additional bonus for answering quickly. In addition to trivia, kids will also be asked questions relating to geography, science, and other subjects. The mocking, irreverent nature of this trivia game can take away from kids having fun answering trivia questions.
Most of the humor of You Don't Know Jack: Twisted Trivia is irreverent. Players will be mocked for wrong answers.
Positive Role Models
The host of this game is off screen. He is sarcastic and irreverent.
Ease of Play
Some typing is required to answer some questions, but most of the games involve hitting the spacebar at the right time.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
The questions can involve usage of words like "penis" (a question about John Bobbitt) and "pubic" (a question about bikini waxing). In addition, one of the fake sponsors unlocked early is for 'Animal Lovers' Boutique' and while the ads will talk about things like "cow pasties," one of the videos shows one turtle mounting another.

The language is sarcastic and while it does not move into stronger usage of words, it does use words that are anatomical body parts (like "penis" and "pubic") and there are references to breasts as well. There is a "joke" by the announcer about size of clown shoes corresponding to the size of a body part.

Products & Purchases
Brand names may be part of a question, but generally the ads are fabricated and not for real products.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
A fictitious sponsor of the game, reached at level 3, is Glug Beer -- a fictional company, but the ad shows people apparently drunk staggering around.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that You Don't Know Jack: Twisted Trivia is a Facebook game requiring a Facebook account. This trivia game asks questions that can be off color, making references to the "g spot" as well as breasts and penises. However, the questions also test a wide range of knowledge, from geographical and historical questions to pop culture. The You Don't Know Jack brand has always integrated pop culture themes and trends, and this game is no different, so this will encourage younger players to remain abreast of current events.
Is It Any Good?
You Don't Know Jack: Twisted Trivia has lost a little of its luster over the years, and this Facebook game is an example of how what worked in the past doesn't quite work now. The jokes feel forced at times, with several of the questions being off-color or leading to off-color comments. However, the game is a decent representation of the You Don't Know Jack franchise as a whole. The games are appropriately quick-paced, and they can provide a decent test of pop culture knowledge.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
