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)

And yeah, unlike almost everybody else, I'm here to improve my poker skills

Taught me how to play Texas Hold'em. Great game overall, with intruiging dialogue, impressive AI ability, and unlockable items (like the Lugermorph!).

If your a person who doesn't know how to play poker, but owns these games (Poker Night at the Invetory, and Poker Night 2) then your like me. I came for the TF2 unlocks and stayed for the commentary. Although I haven't played the second game I want to play the first game in full, unlocking the decks, and tables. Also I want to get all the acheivments before proceeding because I do really like this game.

Pros:

- Amusing character dialogue
- Tutorials
- A lot of fun to play
- TF2
- Great atmosphere
- Humour
- Helps you get into Poker

Cons:

- Becomes unrewarding after getting all the items


Final Thoughts:

Poker Night is a fun and rewarding experience. Of course, it's not for everyone. But it's definitely lighthearted and lots of fun to play.

Overall game rating:

7/10

Okay I'm one of those idiots who didn't buy it for the TF2 stuff. And I suppose having played TF2 or Sam and Max or those other ones from which the characters have taken a break to chill out and gamble their undergarments away would have made me interested in the game. I've seen most reviewers haven't spent more than 10 hours on the game so... that says a lot.

Simply put, there's about a million better games out there if you just want to play poker. The dialogue is pretty good. Very distracting for the poker which makes you fun. You get roped in by a story by Max and the next thing you know you've called about 7k with a deuce and a seven.

There's something quite fun about amusing, disparately rendered characters sit down next to you at the poker table. Each with their unique mannerisms and taunts. Haven't quite paid enough attention or put in enough hours to figure out if they've got their own style of play as well.

The gameplay is excrutiatingly slow. Cutscene/animations and I wish there was an option to increase the play speed or keep the animations to a low like you can select for what level of dialogue you want.

Mercifully though you can skip the hand if you fold and even the whole game if you're knocked out. Though the game takes quite a while to comply probably it's already mid sequence in character animations.

Aside from that there's not much else. No multiplayer, no playing taking your friends money and assets or any of the good stuff. Perhaps a couple of different styles Omaha high-low or 7 card stud would have been good additions as options, without having to do too much work. The game would be worth a bit more then, but then again I brought it to play cards and already committed a capital mistake. Leading me to brand this game Poker Night at the Purgatory.

What the sequel offered more visual features, it somewhat diminishes the illusion of sitting at the table with your favorite fictional characters, which is the real draw to yet another video poker game. I would still recommend trying both Inventory games. Yet once I earned all (most, actually) of the bells and whistles, I find myself drawn to the intimacy of the original game. And there's just no substitute for Strong Bad.

Teaching a game the nuances of bluffing and raising stakes is impossible. Poker isn’t just about playing the game, it’s about playing the players, an impossible challenge Telltale circumvented by making your opponents unpredictable madmen. You play against Max from Sam & Max, The Heavy from Team Fortress 2, Tycho from Penny Arcade and Strong Bad from Homestar Runner. Each is a maniac and Tycho the only one I’d call intelligent. Since you can’t program sensible poker players, they’ve programmed amusingly nonsensical ones instead.

Playing cards is just an excuse to hear them chat. It’s like going backstage and seeing what they get up to when they’re not entertaining us, like the bits in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? where Disney and Warner Bros. characters hang out and argue.

There are two kind of racing game fans--those who prefer games to simulate actual cars and those who prefer arcade-style games that flip a middle finger at physics. Poker Night At The Inventory is the arcade version of poker, the Wacky Racers of the genre. You’ll tire of it once the dialogue loops, but it’s fun while it lasts.

I laugh at everyone who says that they only got the game because of TF2 items. The game itself is worth playing, plus if you think you can drop five bucks and get some easy TF2 items, you got another thing coming

Just be honest, you only got this game for the TF2 weapons. A fun game, maybe. You only play it for TF2 weapons, and you leave right after. This game is lacking in variety, but if you play TF2 I recommend it (so you can get the TF2 weapons).
