1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


This is the fourth game in the first season of episodic Sam and Max adventures
from Telltale. In this episode, the duo are ordered by the commissioner to go
to the White House to find out why the President has been making such strange
orders lately. This was the episode many players had been waiting for. Though
the first three episodes had been good in their own way, they hadn't been
exceptional. Here, the writing, wit and puzzles have reached a very high point
indeed, and the episode is both longer and more interesting than the others.
