I agree, I want the UK edition, it was fantastic!!!

I agree! I owned it years ago but somehow managed to lose the disc (well, I think I lent it to someone and never got it back!). I loved it!

But aren't these games very based on pop culture, so they'd be dated?

Agreed, I still have by original disc but the insaller won't run on Win 7 even in compatability mode =S
Paul Kaye made a brilliant Jack Cake.
Also, I never did find all those elsuive 'Pub Quiz' questions.

I'd jump right on the UK version too!

Yeah.. the one with Dennis Pennis in it... and the ability to screw the other players...

The pop culture isn't the main aspect of the questions to be honest. Plus the majority of questions are based on historical figures rather than 15-minuters.

^This. There were a few metions of the Spice Girls and I'm pretty sure there's a Take That ref in there. But mostly it's Star Wars ('Answered now the question will be, yes'), historical figures (Pyrrus's wife picked out a nice headstone from the catalogue and joined the orderly queue of looters at the collection point), geography (shaking Djibouti), philosophy ('Philosopher World!') and classical literature ('My little Sisyphus'). Not to mention a fair amount of toilet jokes and Jack just generally being a d**k ('Cor, you smell that? That's the stench of question!').

Also the humor is spot on and that won't age. The adverts at the end of the game, starting a game and then pressing no keys so Murray picks you a name, gibberish questions, stupidly titled questions, a question you have to get wrong in order to score the points ('There's a Spice Girl in the ring la la la-la-la'). The UK version was just fantastic. The US version was ok but lost a lot in it's jaunt over the waves to these shores.

There's no denying that this kind of purchase would be a nostalgia trip anyway, so the notion of something being outdated shouldn't really be too relvenat. There are plenty of existing options for people looking for the up-to-date You Dont Know Jack experience.

If I remember correctly (I know I have the disc somewhere, I'll have to dig it out) the UK version was made by a different developer under license. I don't know if Jackbox Games have some kind of rights issue with releasing YDKJ:UK.

However I can confirm it definitely works on Windows 7 Professional x64. And even if it didn't, that's what Windows XP Mode is for ;)

It was Berkley Systems/Something Else Sounds Direct

You can all forget country specific solutions. Europes british, german or french editions were all destroyed by the war doctor in the Last Great Time War. No chance for return. We all have to live the american dream .)

Count me in as someone else who wants it, if a licensing deal can be worked out!

Agreed. I miss the original UK version of YDKJ rather than this 'XL' version. It just isn't the same.

Fortunately I have the original on CD somewhere - though I fear it's installer is 16bit...

The UK Version of YDKJ was funny, and I wish they release it because I like the host, Jack Cake and the Pub Quizzes!
