Does anyone know anything about Poker Tournaments? I've been trying to work on designing a Poker Night 2 followup game. The way I wanted to do it was have it be a full fledged tournament, with multiple tables full of different characters that you progress through in a campaign mode (of course with the ability to mix and match characters in a free-play mode). But I can't find any standard on how many players a poker tournament typically has. Does anyone here know anything that can help me out?

Awesome! Those were great games.

There are some small hints that Gearbox is teasing a new Poker Night game to be announced at PAX, but take that with a slight grain of salt. I'm very hopeful, however.

Don’t know why Gearbox would be doing it considering Telltale made the last two, but I guess it makes a degree of sense. I mean, Telltale has gone under so someone else has to do it. But Gearbox? Are they really qualified?

I could see them potentially pulling it off, but it really depends.

Hopefully the hints are for an actual Poker Night game and not some kind of Borderlands Poker Night.

SnakeFighter64 SnakeFighter64 Never mind, it's for a regular Borderlands game. :(

Oh well, maybe someday.

Here, this is the table I ended up settling on. I went with 5 because I learned that Texas Hold em Poker typically has 6, so 5 plus The Player.
  1. Rick Sanchez (Rick and Morty)
  2. Dante (Devil May Cry)
  3. Bruce Wayne (DC Comics)
  4. James Bond
  5. Circus Baby (Five Nights at Freddy’s)
Colonel Reginald still hosts, GLaDOS still deals, and Moxxi still bartends. Sam and Max would also make an obligatory cameo despite not featuring at the table.

As for bounty challenges: Rick bets Morty, James Bond bets his famous Aston Martin, and Baby bets the infamous FNaF Box. Still not sure what Dante and Bruce’s items would be.

As for interactions. Rick is constantly trying to prove Bruce is Batman and nobody believes him and hates Baby because she’s creepy and she tries to kill Morty, Bruce (as the worlds greatest detective) is a hardcore theorist trying to get to the bottom of the Freddy Fazbear mystery and has a kind of gentlemanly rivalry with Bond (the two comparing feats and constantly trying to one up each other). Dante just needs to sit there and be Dante and say Dante things.
