Available Nov 22nd!

We're finally talking about the game! Let's hang out and discuss things. Learn about the Pre-Order bonus and other TF2 unlocks over at IGN PC's Poker Night preview, with a ton of other info at the Poker Night website.

Official Poker Night website
Images, trailers, FAQs, etc! Also Valve has posted an update to the Team Fortress site about it, too.

Trailer!
Check out the trailer at the official Poker Night website, or Telltale's YouTube channel.

Your forum questions answered:

Does everyone get the unlocks, no matter where they bought it?
Update: This has changed a bit! Yes, everyone gets the updates! No matter whether you buy the game from Steam, or from Telltale directly, you will be given a code to download a Steam copy. The Steam release is the only version which can talk to Team Fortress 2, so if you'd like to get your hats, be sure to play with that version. Telltale customers who have purchased Poker Night can get their Steam code here.

I pre-ordered before you announced the unlocks! (and/or at PAX in person!) Am I still eligible for the poker visor pre-order bonus?
Of course! Like your grandpa always said, a pre-order is a pre-order is a pre-order. Any orders placed, ever, in all time, right up until the game is released, will count.

Tycho talks?!
He does! He's voiced by Kid Beyond, who Telltale fans may recognize as Bugeye in Tales of Monkey Island, and the Narrartor in Sam & Max The Devil's Playhouse. Fans of geek music may recognize him from his appearances at those sorts of events, too (eg: beatboxing vs drum machine faceoff at this Jonathan Coulton concert). We felt from his experience in those roles that he could capture the snarkiness, the gravitas, and the weird cultural crate digging any respectable Tycho needs to get through the day.

Official Mini-FAQ!
(Read the full FAQ here)

Is this a real thing?
You bet your britches. Poker Night at the Inventory is a full-on no-limit Texas hold'em game developed by Telltale in collaboration with Homestar Runner, Penny Arcade and Valve.

Ok, this game has Max, The Heavy, Strong Bad and Tycho in it? It's gotta be pricier than the platinum dipped power glove I just bought on eBay, right?
Nope, $4.95. Four dollars, ninety-five cents. Why? Because we love you and want you to play it, that's why.

What's this all about, anyway?
Poker Night at the Inventory is about getting characters we know and love into an environment where they can drop their guards and be themselves. You play cards and characters have the sorts of conversations you always imagined they had but have never heard. We set out to make a game that was big on character interaction because we thought it'd be cool to hang out and play cards with guys like Tycho, Max, Strong Bad and The Heavy.

  • Sure wish i could play this game......especially when my pc meats the system Req on the dot

  • ...When the game asks you whether you want to continue your previous tournament and you say no, it's just supposed to start a new tournament, not completely erase all your game data, right? Just wanting to make sure whether this was my fault or not.
    So long, Iron Curtain. You too, Max Imp Table.

  • Say TellTale, you plan on selling that Sam & Max deck in your store?

    Well to be fair the iron curtain should still be saved on TF2 so that is fine and the Max imp table is only unlocked by winning a round.

    Well, I don't play Team Fortress, so so the Iron Curtain was more or less sort of an in-game "Hey, look what I did!" That I'm not as upset about.
    As for the Max Imp table... Well, when you're as terrible at poker as I am, it's a bigger accomplishment than it seems.
    Ah well, at least I have a better chance of fixing my previous negative $130,000 bank account

  • Well I'm already done with the game now, I've won all the TF2 Items and unlocked most of the Decks and tables, the Dialogue is repeating and I'm losing every game, so as they say, I'm folding and done, I have no need to play the game anymore.

    But for the price, it did get me a couple of hours worth of play and the dialogue was funny, so props on that.

  • Really happy with the game so far. The dialogue's killing me, and it looks like there's still quite a lot I haven't heard yet, which is awesome. I'm actually pleasantly surprised with Tycho's model (On 6, that is. Lowest graphic Tycho scared the crap out of me.), and as a Penny Arcade enthusiast, I highly approve of his voice, which I've mentioned quite a few times already. Blame the aspiring VA in me, I guess.

  • Hey I was playing today and Max and me had 2 pair and Tyhco had a straight and Max won didn't really know if there was anywhere else to mention this.

  • @yoshifan said: Hey I was playing today and Max and me had 2 pair and Tyhco had a straight and Max won didn't really know if there was anywhere else to mention this.

    This has been answered so many times its not funny.
    There was a side pot. The game says who won the biggest pot. That has been fixed and there is already a patched version out.

  • @Nintomster said: Yay! Now to wait for the actual game! :D


    Its like sounds very exciting and interesting too. actual game is very much awaited.
