In this prefiguring of Telltale's Poker Night series, you can play cards with characters from other Sierra games, and even the developers of this one. Leave them alone for a moment and they'll strike up conversations about their lives, interests, and respective universes.

Unfortunately, the software suffers from a minor form of the time bomb glitch that plagued several Sierra games of the era. As of 18 September 1993, the characters' facial expressions will be much less animated, and they won't start chatting no matter how long you wait. The Sierra MCDATE patch merely delays the time bomb until 28 May 2007. For the full conversational experience, set the Mac system clock back to 1992.

The followup, Volume 2, was populated exclusively by solitaire games.
