  1. So how does it play? Does it retain the snarkiness of the original?

  2. Games are shorter (ten questions + Jack Attack). 73 games included, 400 point DLC packs include ten more games each.

    Takes up to 4 players. Everybody puts in an answer against a 20 second clock, points won/lost based on response time. One screw per person. Points doubled in “second round” (last five questions). Other players can “steal” on wrong answers in Dis or Dat (did that used to be there?).

    A *lot* of added animation and goofiness. There was a question based on the emcee’s dreams, involving a lot of cats, and you had to guess the movie on which the dream was based. My favorite new addition is the Wrong Answer of the Day. One wrong answer in the game is worth double *positive*, not negative points. Really upsets people (*cough*Michael*cough*) when you win the first two games, are losing the third, but get the lead back on a wrong answer. Hypothetically, of course.

    Overall, I’m very happy with it, and we’re only three games in.
