Choose to play as one of several distinct characters and play a variant of No-limit Texas Holdem where the winner walks away with both money and intellect, but the losers become airheaded bimbos.

Sidenote: The art in this game was generated using the vector graphics based application Kisekae 2. As such, all art assets of the bimbofication process has a cartoonish look to them. This might not appeal to everyone.
As a reply to several reviews: Thanks to you I am now very aware of that the AI needs to be able to raise more than the minimum amount or they will call-raise for very long periods of time. I just want to say that I will fix this issue as soon as I get the time! This might be a little while though as my time is currently quite limited.

This game is fantastic. It balances the perfect amount of porny content and gameplay.
More than that, it is all around well made and fun to play. It's basically generic texas hold'em, you can't really screw it up- but it adds an angle of having a "health bar" of sorts in form of your IQ. You attack other players by fondling them, but fondling people also turns you on. You can take a turn to relax and lower your arousal level, but if people are fondling you nonstop there's not really much point. The lower your IQ the stronger your fondling power is along with your "defense" to being turned on. You also passively generate arousal to other players when you're bimbo-ey enough, but be careful- if you hit 30 IQ (or is it 40, I can't remember) you are out of the game.
As you can see, there is a lot of strategy to it. This is impressive considering it's only one mechanic added to an already "perfected" game.
The graphics are great. I see a lot of KiseKae generated stuff and honestly I find 99% of it bad and all the same. Every character in this game however makes "sense" for their stereotype and have gradual enough transformations to make it really hot compared to most sequences done in this generator. Speaking of them, I love the stereotypes in this game- it leads to good variety for each character. I see other people critique it for being too "wacky", but personally I like that you're not just Joe Bob or Marcy Susan and you're either a ninja, a cowboy, a gangster, etc. You can click on your enemies to see their full body portraits so you can easily see them slowly transform throughout the game. All the transformations seem relevant to their characters except for one which I won't spoil but I felt it was kind of out of left field (but I still found it hot so I guess I can't totally complain). There is also good attention to detail- not only can characters degrade into bimbos but they can also become more intelligent versions of their base selves, which is cool to see if somebody is absolutely wiping the floor with you.
I do have some complaints, but in no way do I feel they overshadow the likes I have for this game. The balance needs work, but I'm sure this is something that could be done with time. The game goes really really slow until one person is completely turned into a bimbo, and since their IQ is so low it generates extremely high arousal for everyone else. This makes it so the game after that point is a breakneck speed of somebody winning a pot, getting 200 IQ, losing it all immediately due to mass fondling and arousal generation, then another person wins a pot and gets 200 IQ... etc. I wish the game was a more balanced experience so I can see the slow transformations rather than straight from point A -> B.
The dialogue feels a bit samey, and I think even all the characters say the same lines at certain points of the game. For the most part they have character specific dialogue when they're their base forms and when they are a complete bimbo, but in the middle of this (where most of the game takes place) all the dialogue is the same and it gets repetitive. I'm sure just adding a few lines for each character would easily fix this.
I'm sure it's extremely hard to program good AI for a strategic card game like texas hold'em, but I found their actions a bit.... strange. Due to how the IQ pots work, when it hits it's limit and the next pot will contain IQ, everyone acts bulletproof and raises even if they're dirt poor. They almost always target the person with the most IQ, and hardly target you unless you have the most IQ. If I raised even a little I could get people with amazing hands to fold instantly almost every time.
Overall, this game is great, but it's still a bit rough. That's ok. The developer seems passionate enough and is active on deviantart. I think this is easily one of the best games i've played on this site.
Fantastic game! I have had a lot of fun viewing all the different transformations! 10/10
Easily one of my favorite games on this site. Maybe it's a combination of my preferences to transformation over sex scenes, but seeing a game with focus on mental transformation and seeing a bimbo game that does have a decent focus on IQ loss makes me happy.
Bimbo Holdem Poker appeals to me for two very clear reasons. Firstly, it has bimbo TF, which I adore, and secondly, it's based on a strategy game, and I will never tire of strategy games. In BHP, you are against several AI poker players, and you must play standard No Limit Holdem in order to win money, because if you run out of money, you have to buy more by spending IQ. IQ is also lost through orgasming, which happens through players getting groped by others. I'll talk more about this later, but the reason I wanted to mention it here is to make it clear that you can also gain IQ and become more refined by winning the IQ lost from everyone's orgasms as a bonus in some pots. So the game allows all characters, including yourself, to continuously transform into, and away from, a bimbo. Some characters are male and some are female, but when fully bimbofied they all have turned into female, mega titted topless ubersluts.
Graphics (6/10): The game maker(s) used the popular Kisekae flash program to create the characters and their variations throughout the transformation sequence. The characters have been done well, they are all very different and it's not just size that changes, but clothing, pose, facial expression, hair and so on. The characters have cropped images on the board, but you can click on each player to have their entire image appear in your viewing window on the left. I have no complaints with the art, but obviously there's always more room for more variations. Each character must only have 8 or so different images. And to get the highest points on graphics, a game would need to have its own completely OC drawn art.
Usability (5/10): Maybe this score is a bit harsh but I feel that there is a lot that can be done here. Taking some direction from how all the big online poker sites have their interface, I think the buttons and the indicators of how much money is involved could be vastly improved to help keep the user aware of what the state of play is. With regards to the sex mechanics, I would like it to automatically 'relax' if I don't choose 'grope' or 'striptease', rather than assume I don't want to do anything. The game doesn't make it obvious enough when IQ is on the line, or when someone is all in, from my point of view.
Gameplay (7/10): The orgasm mechanic is such a great idea, overall. The game takes poker and adds an extra layer of strategy over the top. Do you attack others, or do you just reduce your own arousal? Do you stay in a hand you're not going to win just so you get extra actions to affect arousal? Are you so confident that you're going to win the hand and all the IQ at stake, that you throw in some stripteases to further raise the stakes? The idea is great, but the implementation needs a lot of refinement. IQ swings are too frequent right now - I think that rather than the trigger being 10 IQ, it should be 10 times the number of players. Ganging up on the person in the lead is a great rubberbanding mechanic but it's too strong - you win loads of IQ only to just have it stripped away over the next few rounds. Orgasms should probably be less frequent, but higher damage, in terms of IQ. There need to be a few more options, to increase the depth of the strategy. Maybe there is a hidden action with a cooldown or other cost which causes you to make everyone else orgasm if you do before your next go. Maybe repeated actions against the same target in a row have weaker and weaker impacts until you switch to someone else. Maybe once you orgasm, you have a refactory period where attacks have much lower impact on you. Also personally I'd prefer it if some IQ loss from the table was permanent, to prevent the game getting stale and staying with everyone around 120 for ages. Also the game should actually end at some point earlier than when there's only one man left standing. Also, as previously mentioned by someone else, the AI needs to raise by larger amounts, to prevent this ridiculous raise re-raise situation that goes for ages.
Overall (6/10): The game is good fun. Anyone that actually enjoys an interesting strategy challenging while getting their kicks should play it for sure. This review ended up sounding quite negative, which I apologise for because it really is fun. There are some really nice touches, like how the names of the characters and their speech lines change depending on IQ level. But there's so much potential for small improvements to make a massive difference, and that's what I have hopefully made clear here!
Great game, only issue I have found is that after about 300 IQ the game starts making you the different forms each turn.
