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)

Multiple Stressors Affect Bee Health
Scientists and regulatory authorities agree bee health is a complex issue, and researchers are continuing to seek answers to general honey bee colony declines. While the specific cause of these colony losses remains undetermined, several studies have indicated this delicate balance may be affected by a variety of factors, including introduced pests and parasites, microbial diseases, inadequate diet, bee management practices, habitat loss, loss of genetic diversity and improper use of pesticides.

Specific factors affecting bee health, include:
Parasites (Varroa; tracheal mites) - Most scientists now agree that honeybee colony losses are the result of multiple causes, with no single factor being responsible. This Forbes article explores the myriad of factors contributing to honey bee losses. This Bayer brochure explores the many factors affecting honey bee health, especially the Varroa mite. Also read the Overwintering Fact Sheet.

Nutrition deficiencies - Bayer's North American Bee Care Center Manager Dr. David Fischer testified before the Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee of the House Agriculture Committee to discuss research and management strategies regarding pollinator health in April 2014. Panelists agreed (archived webcast) that the two top factors impacting bee health are parasitic Varroa mites and lack of adequate nutrition and forage.

Diseases (Nosema; bacteria; viruses) - Honey bees are impacted by the Nosema ceranae fungus, the American foulbrood disease, and more than 20 viruses.

Weather - The weather can exacerbate other problems that honey bees face.

Beekeeping practices - Research has provided new management recommendations that beekeepers have begun to adopt.

Pesticides (hives; agriculture) - Some critics contend that neonicotinoids may be involved in honeybee losses; however, there has been no demonstrated effect on colony health associated with neonicotinoid-based insecticides when used according to the label. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency stated in 2012 that it "is not aware of any data indicating that honey bee declines or the incidence of CCD in the U.S. is correlated with the use of pesticides in general or with the use of neonicotinoids in particular." This Bayer fact sheet takes a close look at the data behind neonicotinoids and the role of the compound in crop protection.

Genetic weakness - One effect varroa mites have in severely attacked colonies, is to cause deformities.

Queen issues - This report on the National Stakeholders Conference on Honey Bee Health considers much of the research done on honey bee health and considers the impacts of nutrition and food diversity on the longevity of queens and workers among other issues.

Poker for nerds! What could possibly go wrong?

...not that much, as it turns out. Despite the rather exploitable AI, repetitive announcer, and my continual cringing over the fact that its premise is literally a crossover fanfiction, Poker Night at the Inventory isn't actually bad. The presentation is great, but then again it would be with Telltale at the helm.

They at least knew that many people would buy this primarily for the Nerd Cred(tm) and/or TF2 items, so first time players get a series of helpful prompts that literally tell them what poker is. I'm sure it outright introduced a number of people to Texas hold 'em; not bad for a light card game with added videogame flavoring and dumb banter.


Poker Night still doesn't run that well on modern computers, although thankfully it runs better than it did when I hoovered up all the TF2 items years ago.

There's almost no variation on the announcer's voice lines, to the extent that they became ingrained in my memory, as was the repeated spectacle of literally everyone but me playing a full house and Max somehow winning each time. Still, the characters are solid (apart from Tycho who straddles the line between sarcastic foil and jerkass foil) and the writing manages to be quite entertaining nonetheless.

I guess if you'd be into this sort of thing, I'd recommend it, although I freely admit I'm not crazy about it: I bought it a long time ago for the items. It's a very interesting idea on paper, having multiple intellectual properties from different genres playing poker, but it didn't exactly grab me in practice. I can't say how either this game or promotional item collectors will fare when TF2 eventually declines.


Also: one of the achievements is for getting a straight flush which literally has a one in thousands chance of happening. You kind of need to automate the process :V

Overall, a good game. I played it to hear the character conversations rather than the poker, but I felt the poker portion was well done and played smoothly. The dialogue was great, as I would expect from any TellTale game, but I honestly wasn't that familiar with the characters other than the Heavy. I bought Sam And Max in the last Steam Sale, but haven't had time to play it yet. I never got into Strongbad or Penny Arcade, so those two characters are lost to me as well.

That being said, it was funny regardless and I quickly learned the personalities of the characters I didn't know much about. It is a good time waster and fun to hear all the dialogue.

Better than the sequel purely because of the better cast of characters. Not to mention that it legit feels like you are playing Poker with your favorite (or those who should be your favorite) characters.

I recommend it even if you only want the items from TF2.
+ Telltale Studio
+ Poker
+ Entertaining
+ TF2 items *-*
+ Characters

- After 10-15 hours it becomes boring

It's as good as Poker Night 2.

If you enjoy poker, casual gaming and good company then this game is worth every penny and more.

The game in its basic form is just Texas Hold'em poker, easy to play and clean layout. However there are many achievements to unlock, items to collect and even free unlocks for Team Fortress 2.

The witty dialogue between your opponants gives you immersion into their world and the background music, which I enjoy immensely, comforts you at the table.

I've owned this game for many years and I still pop back for a round of cards with these chumps. So grab a drink and join the fun at the Inventory club.

WARING!

It have been crashing on Mac OS since 3 years back and there's no way to play it seems. If you are thinking of buying this game for your Apple-computer - have bootcamp ready or move on. Telltale have responded to the problem, and it won't be fixed.

Just google "Poker Night at the Inventory Crash Mac" and visit their site with the forum thread. Official response says "Mac OS X 10.5 or newer (Not Compatible with Mac OS 10.8.x and above)". Although on Steam it says "Mac OS X 10.5 or newer".

If you only want this game for the TF2 items, go ahead and buy it, but be warned; You're going to need to spend a decent amount of time playing and learning poker in order to get the items.

If you want the game because it's a poker game, and you like poker, then you'll probably have fun with this one.

If you want this game for any reason other than those two.. Who are you?!

This is a nice, cheap game that was probably more fun than a lot of other games I've played lately. There's just something about playing a game of cards that invigorates your brain (there's actually some studies that have been done that shows that just playing Solitaire alone provides a lot of mental stimulation). The fact that the game provides a bunch of cool characters to play with, rewards for other games that honestly make you feel accomplished and god-like when you acquire them, as well as various unlocks and random banter between characters makes it even more worthwhile.

I've got to say, the company that manages to take a kind of niche concept like this, gives it a bit more gametypes (more than just Texas Hold 'Em but other card games as well), multiple characters, and a multiplayer mode will probably make a ton of money. I've had more fun just dipping my toes into this game than I have attempting the F2P collectible card games currently available on Steam right now. I will definitely be playing more of this, even long after I get the weapon skins for Team Fortress 2.
