Panesian Nintendo NES Games | Hot Slots Bubble Bath Babes

Peek-A-Boo PokerHot Slots CoverBubble Bath Babes CoverThe expression "When it rains, it pours" is a great way to describe the last two weeks with the rare Panesian NES games, Peek-A-Boo Poker, Bubble Bath Babes, and Hot Slots. In the last 14 days there have been 10 different auctions for individual Panesian games plus a couple of auctions for all three. In the six months before that there were only eight auctions.

To put that in perspective there was roughly one of these games available every single day during the last 14 days (when you include the 3-in-1 auctions). But during the six months before that you would have to wait an average of 22 days just to see one come up for auction.

What caused this spike in sales for these rare NES games? It looks like it was the high prices all three games sold for on March 1st. You can see in the historic charts for Bubble Bath Babes, Hot Slots, and Peek-A-Boo Poker that the prices shot way up in the March listings. The last sale of Hot Slots went for $1,450! These high prices encouraged owners of these games to list their copies for sale too.

Some of our readers might be wondering why these games sell for so much and why they are so rare. These Panesian NES games were made for the original Nintendo console but were unlicensed. Nintendo didn't want Adult oriented games on the NES but Panesian released them on their own. Because they were unlicensed and had adult content, they were produced in very limited quantities. They are notorious for being horrible games but their special history makes them popular with NES game collectors.

Three more of these were listed on ebay this morning (making it 13 listings in 14 days). Complete versions of Hot Slots, Bubble Bath Babes, and Peek-A-Boo Poker. When will this heavy rainfall end?
