About This Game

***Not Compatible with Mac OS 10.8.x and above***

Prepare for a different kind of poker night in a very different kind of club. In Poker Night at the Inventory, you'll deal with Penny Arcade's clever, cunning Tycho, Team Fortress 2's hulking Heavy, Homestar Runner's self-proclaimed "awesome icon" Strong Bad and the hyperkinetic "rabbity-thing" from Sam & Max. These characters come together in ways some never thought possible, in a setting few would have predicted.
Unlock new TF2 items by beating The Heavy, Max, Tycho, or Strong Bad at high stakes games of poker.

The Enthusiast's Timepiece: Tycho's favorite timepiece (equippable by the Spy)

License to Maim: Max's Badge (equippable by all classes)
The Lugermorph: A second chance at Max's personal armament (equippable by the Scout and the Engineer)


The Iron Curtain: The Heavy's first love (equippable by the Heavy, obviously)


Dangeresque, Too?: Strong Bad's styling glasses (equippable by the Demoman)

Let's face it. You are here for the Iron Curtain.
I was too.
And has what the title offers. A Poker game.
But you know what? I love it.
First, it taught me how to play Poker (something i'm sure most of us don't)
Then you have the other players...
THEY ARE ICONS OF THE INTERNET CULTURE!... And Max. But hey, Sam & Max is an awesome game!
You get to talk with our beloved Heavy Weapons Guy, Mikhail from TF2!
From the first days of Flash Animation Nonsense you get Strong Bad too!
And for all of us true No Lifers who actually read web comics and know what Penny Arcade is, you get the Sarchastic, Devil Posessed, Drunk, Sex Offender (sometimes), foul mouthed (always) Tycho Brahe!
And Max.
You came here for the Iron Curtain, but you will come back for the High Stakes Action!
... Or for the Lugermorph ._.

Click random cards, If you don't win, do it again until you get a TF2 Item, then when you get all the achievement Items, uninstall the game.

Fun game, helped me to learn play poker in real life and TF2 rewards.

The dialoge is really funny and I love the interactions between charaters, however this game does have some downsides.

1. People only play this for TF2 stuff
2. Even though multiplayer is out of Telltale's reach, it would have been a fantastic feature
3. Getting the TF2 stuff is too easy.

Overall worth the buy, get it now.

+ Visually appealing
+ Funny dialogue, but gets repetative after a while
+ Unlocks add incentive to play
- Predictable AI is too easy

Ever wanted to listen to some of your favorite video game and internet characters say kinda funny things to each other while you play a basic poker game? Maybe? Well maybe you should give Poker Night at the Inventory a try. Naturally, the addition of character antics slows the game down quite a bit, so if you want to really play poker, this game will piss you off. Additionally, the character AI is very predictable after you've played for a bit. Tycho is conservative, Heavy is aggressive, Strong Bad likes to bluff, and Max is aggressive to the point of stupidity. Once you learn their tendencies and tells, the game becomes very easy.

It's fun for a while, a nice game to relax with while enjoying an adult beverage. By the time you unlock most of the stuff, though, you'll probably be bored of it. Good thing they made another one!

73/100
A great poker game for people who don't really play poker. Worth about 2 bucks at this point.

Kind of short a short lived game, but still fun to play. The TF2 items are the real bonus.

This game is great because not only do you have unlimited replays but you can also win Team Fortress 2 items like The Enthusiast's Timepiece, License to Maim, The Lugermorph, The Iron Curtain, and Dangeresque, Too?. So I highly recomend the game.

>>> IF YOU HAVE A MAC, READ THIS!!! <<<

So, basically I have a mac. Everytime you click "Done" when the "How to play Poker" window comes up, the game crashes. Telltalegames doesn't care though. They were stupid enough to leave half of the files unported to mac. Unless some Telltalegames worker can lend us some source code, this game is screwed for mac.

Please upvote so that people can see this game-breaking error.

It's poker. With a bunch of degenerate characters. And let's be honest: you bought or are considering buying it to get some TF2 items.

So sure, go ahead. You'll enjoy a decent game of poker, and an excellent script (that goes longer than expected before repeating) while you get said items.

Also, Tycho's voice is... strange. Odd to finally here a voice put to a Penny Arcade character.

Very very very fun game. I didn't know anything about poker and still got all of the items in 2 nights of play. The items are a nice touch to this, the smack talk is hilarious and the characters are so fun to play with.

11/10 Best poker game i've ever played :D

Very dissapointed that the Mac version of the game will not run with Mac osx 10.8 onwards. I feel like unless this is fixed calling it a mac compatible version of the game is a bit of a joke.

>Buys game
>New Game
>Goes "all in" every time
>Never looses due to confused AI
>Gets Items
>Uninstalls


EDIT : I actually re-installed and had a lot of fun with this game! It taught me how to play poker and made me laugh with the amazing cast (Long live Tycho)
Recommended just for the great humor! Or the items, like I did...

DON'T GET IT FOR A MAC.

This should not be recommended for mac users as which it does not work when you click done on the tutorial. The game immediantly crashes as you click done.

Why buy this game? The Team Fortress 2 ♥♥♥♥.
I just picked up this game and played it until I got all of the TF2 items and then never launched it again. Yeah there's at most 10 hours of gameplay here but honestly, its worth the $2.50 because the items are pretty sick.

Just buy it - worst case scenario: you learn to play Texas Hold 'Em and get some cool TF2 items.

NOTE: TL;DR can be found in the bottom of this review. Whether you're looking for a review made in 1 paragragh or in a multitude of them, I hope you enjoy the review(s).

Moving along...

I decided to do a small review on Poker Night @ the Inventory. It's a simple concept made for a simple video game based on a (simple on paper) complex card game called Poker which everyone probably knows.

If you don't... well... shame on you, because it's really f*ckin' fun! (Avoid real money bets though, there's a high chance you'll lose your car, dog, wife, house or kids with all the betting and stuff...)

Anyways, Poker is nicely recreated in this video game format... mostly.

You play against popular video game franchise characters, naming Max (from the Sam and Max series), Strong Bad (I have no idea), Heavy Weapons Guy (from TF2) and that's it...

The dialogue is well done, it's funny at times and it keeps the mood going without boring you. The fact that the AI is solid for the most part also helps a lot. However, after a couple of hours, the dialogue WILL repeat itself over and over, making you skip it constantly after 3 hours of play, which isn't very good, as you can probably tell.

The gameplay is basic poker, you got your flushes, straights (and hom... bad joke, sorry), full houses (which you won't have if you play on casinos, more like "empty houses" hahaha, get it?! God, what's wrong with me?), two-pairs, your classic "poker" and more...

Everything plays as it should... like a poker game...

There is one thing lacking though... and that is the possibility to bluff.

You can bluff, sure. I mean I did go "All-In" when everything I had was a "pair of twos" or an "Ace-High" and all the AI ended up folding. Bunch of chicken ♥♥♥♥♥...

Anyways, it felt like luck more than anything else, bluffing is supposed to make you feel good, you can trick people into thinking you have a full poker of Aces when in fact, you only possess a joker and a Magic: The Gathering card.

Where do you think the expression "Poker Face" comes from? Exactly...

The lack of a bluff system (which no poker video game can ever do, I think... maybe "Next-Gen" can fix that, LOL!) takes away a bit of the strategy of the game. However, it's enough to make the game fun enough to play, to listen to the characters talk (Heavy and Max are awesome, Strong Bad came to me as annoying) and to generally, have a good time!

And I had indeed, a good time! Even the luck felt PERFECTLY balanced to either f*ck me, or f*ck one (or more) of the opponents, not too unfair or fair for me. I actually remember ending up the very first round of the match going All-In alongside 2 other characters, which was hilarious!

********************************TL;DR**************************************

I'm dragging a bit here, so, sorry. Anyways, funny dialogue that can get repetitive after a while (but that's expected), nicely balanced luck (in my case), basic poker gameplay, nothing special to talk about the gameplay. And finally, you get TF2 stuff! Only problems I had were related to frustrating luck (some matches in a row just weren't clicking for me) and the lack of bluffing (quite impossible in video game format). OH! AND NO MULTIPLAYER!!!! WTF, TELLTALE?!

So overall, I had fun. The game costs (only) 3,99€, on sale, you can get it for 0,99€ or even less!

It's a perfect game to spend your time in work breaks (lengthier matches won't last more than ~45 minutes (and even that's pushing it!)).

The obligatory gaming industry scoring system for Poker Night @ the Inventory is an arbitrarily pointless 8/10.

Small review my ♥♥♥! Ugh!

Fun game if you feel like just shuting off your brain and doing just about nothing. If you like getting TF2 promo items you would also like it just because why not.
