Summary

Fun card game

The Good

I always liked this game because of it's well done graphics, the great music by Ed Bogas and the nice ambiance in general. Wheedling money out of known politicians is also a plus. *g* The animations are well done and the characters seem alive, when they throw in an occasional funny comments or just comment on their winnings/losses. The game can be seen as a spiritual ancestor to the Telltale Poker Night games.

The Bad

Nothing really. It's a card game, so it's not overly exiting in the long run. And of course it could always have used more characters and more game modes.

The Bottom Line

You play cards (Hearts, Poker or Blackjack) against NPCs, which seem alive by commenting on their winnings/losses.
