An NES cartridge full of regrets.
GENRE: Card games
RELEASE DATE: 1991
Unlike other 8-bit, uh, “erotica” by Panesian (see Bubble Bath Babes and Hot Slots), Peek-A-Boo Poker gives you a sampling of the girls right away. Before you even begin your poker game, you choose one of three half-nude hilariously named women: Full-House Francine, Pok-er Penny, and Double-Dealing Debbie. I didn’t want to choose any of them, but I pressed ‘A’ with my eyes shut and went straight to the poker game. Everybody knows poker, right? Straights, flushes, two-pair, three-of-a-kind, usually booze, cigars, and money involved. I played poker for a little while and lost some money. Full-House Francine laughed at my inexperience every time I lost. The whole affair was pretty boring, actually; if I wanted to play poker, I’d play with friends or online – not so I could hopefully, possibly, maybe see some naked pixelated women. After the aforementioned unsuccessful rounds, I turned Peek-A-Boo off. I didn’t see any nudity, outside the initial woman selection screen. I didn’t want to see any nudity, even on the women selection screen. And since Peek-A-Boo is, at its core, a strip poker game (the more money you win, the more you see of the girl – in theory), I’m not their target demographic. I hope you, the reader, aren’t either.

I do enjoy me a nice game of poker….but these stakes are not the ones that come to mind. -Robb K
Have you played Penguin Wars? It's Japan only, so I figure that's why you didn't review it. But it's very simple and very fun, half dodge ball, half ping pong type game. It's worth a look.
I haven't! And you're correct, I don't review Japan-only games. I'll still check it out, though. Thanks!
No nudity??? That's the only reason I clicked on the link! Haha. Humor aside, I suppose you shouldn't post such screenshots anyways lest your site be flagged or yanked. Now we wouldn't want that, would we? :p
