Ante-Up at the Friday Night Poker Club
DOS - 1990
Description of Ante-Up at the Friday Night Poker Club
Ante-Up at the Friday Night Poker Club is an above-average poker game by ComputerEasy.
The game lets you play 4 variants of poker against 4 computer-controlled players. The variants you can play are 5 Card Stud, 5 Card Draw, 7 Card Stud, and Texas Hold 'Em, but you cannot choose which one you want unless the dealer asks you. The gameplay is straightforward: try to make as much money as possible by betting and folding at the right time, and hope the lady luck is on your side. Computer players have their own playing style, and after a while you will be able to tell them apart.
A nice feature is "Captain's Class," which gives you a complete rundown on all the rules of each game, as well as a good introductory lesson (complete with quizzes to test your understanding) on the basics of poker. You can also turn the Captain's advice on during the game if you are new to poker.
A decent poker game... too bad there is no extensive record keeping like QQP's Lucky's Casino.

I agree with you guys, I loved playing this game...still got the 3.5 floppy disk and the booklet...wish it came in a CD or later version. (They got it right the first time.)

I have to agree with Bob on this game. Also, I must take issue with the HOTUD reviewer regarding record keeping. At the end of a round (when all but one player has been eliminated), a page of rather extensive statistics appears for the human player (playing AI competitors) and represents an infinitely running record of that player's betting, financial status and current standing unless reset to zero. All in all, a very well done game for its time.

Best poker game I have, play it all the time on DosBox at 800x600 res. Very Intuitive mouse interface and nice graphics even by more advanced standards. Players can be tough to beat and they all have distinct styles of play.
