Peek-A-Boo Poker is a video game made by Hacker International and distributed by Panesian in 1991 as one of three pornographic video games the company made for the Nintendo Entertainment System, the other two being Bubble Bath Babes and Hot Slots. One of the earliest pornographic video games it went out of mainstream distribution as the industry matured and the "user base broadened". The distribution was also limited as major national chains would not carry the items for sale.
A few factors that show the game was unlicensed are the odd cartridge shape, the odd sticker shape (no label on the top), and the color of the cartridge. These attributes can also be recognized on other unlicensed video games such as Bible Adventures and Gauntlet.
The gameplay is a simple strip poker simulator where you get to see a different reward screen, a pornographic image of a woman, for every 1000$ you make from 1000-5000$. The rules are a standard five-cards poker, where you change one time and must call or drop if the bet was raised, each round starts with a 10$ blind bet and later you can bet whole tens from 30$ to 90$. You can choose to play against any of the characters full house Francine, double dealing Debby or pok-er [sic] Penny.
