    In case anyone is wondering, you can unlock different table designs and it looks like card designs too. Plus there are a bunch of achievements.

    It says in the pause screen how many games you need to win to unlock a new deck. It takes 3 wins to unlock the first one.

    Which is TF2.

    Wow, Max and Strongbad are terrible players! Tycho raped everyone at the table. At first I didn't like his voice but it's growing on me. LOVE the tycho and heavy conversations.

    Because it takes like a full minute for Max to bet his pistol and you've already heard it several times.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this game. Its essentially a casual game for hardcore gamers. The huge amount of charm and polish really push this game over the edge, especially for a poker game. Its amazing how fun it is just to listen to the other characters chat casually. Its an experience that hasn't really be captured in any other games I know of. Hopefully they will make some kind of sequel, or at least some kind of dlc to keep it fresh.

    The Heavy seems to be a really aggressive better, while Tycho pretty much folds resignedly three out of four hands.

    I apparently really suck at poker. Going all in on the first hand is usually not a smart move.

    Maybe I am unlucky, but I have found the opposite to be true. My first impression is that the game is really UN-polished...

    The menu(s) are not responsive at all, and the dialog - while awesome - already started repeating in my second game. The interface feels kind of annoying as well...though maybe I just need to get used to it, and the animations are kind of spotty. For example, Max leaning over the table in a close-up and pushing a huge (and invisible) stack of chips in to the center with both hands.

    I wasn't expecting much for a $5 poker game, but so far it feels worse (but with better dialog) than the poker in Red Dead Redemption.

    I dunno, in the game I'm playing right now Strong Bad's cleaning up. In three hands he's won all three, and eliminated Max & the Heavy.

    Also, zomg, definitely turn off the censor bleeps if just for Tycho.

    I really like the game. Except it's already repeating dialog an hour in. How hard is it to flag lines and conversations? It just seems lazy, especially considering all the work Tell Tale put in to be loyal to the characters.

    But, anyway, finally knocked the Heavy & Tycho out in the same round, and the Heavy had the Iron Curtain up for grabs. :D

    Well that was an intense round.

    Max had bet his gun and badge, and I'm on hard mode.

    One by one the others fell, until it was just me and him. We bet bits of our cash, never going all out. The money changed hands multiple times.

    Finally, the last hand was down, 3 Fives were on the table. Max bet it all.

    Looking at my hand, I decided to gamble my fate.

    The three of a kind tie was settled by our personal highest card. Max had a Jack... I had a King.

    Boo-ya

    The watch came up, and tycho proceeded to fold 100% of the games afterwords. I bought this game so I could get the watch.

    Yeah, I'm loving it. Tycho folds early in the hand, and Strong Bad ends up going All In. I call him.

    And end up getting a Straight in the flop. :D
    Tycho: That'll do, cards. That'll do.

    I think Tycho loves it whenever anything bad happens to SB.

    Ugh, the game has some sort of graphical error with it. I pull up the settings menu and there are vertical lines missing from half the displayed icons, and no sliders showing to denote what settings are at what, if something is enabled or disabled, etc. I can't tweak the settings to see if it changes anything because I can't see the settings to tweak. And clicking left and right on the arrows that supposedly control things like graphics and shadow quality don't seem to have any effect.
