The second South Park cartridge released on Nintendo 64 is a game show patterned after the You Don't Know Jack series with voice clips from Matt Stone, Trey Parker and Isaac Hayes. Chef's Luv Shack offers a series of questions aimed to test pop culture knowledge while trying to elicit some lowbrow laughs. Up to four players can tackle such categories as "Sucks, or Canadian?" and "Salisbury Steak." They can also participate in 20 irreverent mini-games, many inspired by classic coin-ops of the 1980s.
Each contest consists of two, four, six, or eight rounds with three trivia questions forming one round. Questions fall under one of three different categories, and each question has four possible answers listed in a multiple-choice format. The player who answers correctly receives a varying number of points. Players can also use what is referred to as a "shaft" to pass a particularly puzzling question to another contestant.
The "shafted" player must then answer the question or shaft another available player. The catch is that if this question is answered correctly, the player will receive double points. If the question is missed, however, the player will lose double points. Besides answering questions and shafting their friends, players will be able to witness a number of "specials" during the game.
Lurking behind some of the categories are special situations. These random elements involve the following four themes: The Wheel of Fortuitousness (spin it 'round to earn 1,000 bonus points, a trip to jail, or other events); Pressure Rounds (answer ten true or false questions within 30 seconds); Double Down (bet on whether you'll answer the question correctly); and Game Time. The latter event has the lucky participant competing in an arcade-style mini-game. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
