Let’s Undress… the Strip Poker Game
We strongly doubt that there is even a single soul walking the earth that does not know the meaning of strip poker. It has been a scene of so many movies that you are hardly unaware of how things go. But for those of you, who pretend to have the whole deal explained, it’s an almost regular game of poker. But if you lose, you have to take a piece of clothing away. If somehow, you are outrageously lucky and you lose at most a couple of hands, you will have a bunch of naked people in front of you. Which can be hilarious too, as far as everybody plays with the right mindset, of course. It is quite hard to say when strip poker was born, but we would guess that it happened shortly after poker itself was invented. And since New Orleans is accepted to be the birthplace of the popular game, many assume that the kinkier version was also played there for the first time. And if we already inspired you, you can give a check to our article about the best poker sites in the UK, where you can try your skills… fully dressed!
How to Play Strip Poker?
The strip poker game has quite simple and straight-forward rules. But there are a few important things that you should remember and consider if you are planning to gather friends of yours for a fun evening. As a starter, try to do it just with people that are comfortable with each other. And don’t drop the bomb out of the blue! Previous arrangements will grant you that no one will be left out, uncomfortable or even ashamed. When it comes to how to play strip poker, you must choose the variation first. Better go for the one that everybody is familiar with. The best choices that you have are Texas Hold’em, 5-card poker or 3-card poker, in our humble opinion. Another important factor is the number of clothes. Let’s see which are the four steps that you have to take in order to ensure a great time:
- Make sure that everybody is comfortable – Always play with familiar people and make previous arrangements.
- Choose a variation – You can play Hold’Em, 5-card or other version.
- Agree on the rules – Either the weakest hand strips or all losing hands do.
- Count the clothing – Everybody should have the same number of clothes/accessories.
It is kind of unfair if one person is dressed like an Eskimo, while others are with a pair of jeans and a top. Agree on the items that count. Guys usually have belts, socks, ties etc, while a girl can be with a pair of sandals and a dress after all. And while some players might be quite happy with the outcome of such a strip poker game, equality is quite important. The best option is simply to count the pieces of fabric and, in case of need, remove or add additional clothes or jewellery if it counts.
Important advice that we feel like giving you is that people feel much freer and more comfortable after a couple of drinks. No one says that you should get drunk, but it might be a good idea to break the ice a bit, before stripping. When the game starts, every strategy from a regular poker is allowed. You can bluff, lie, distract. You can do everything that will keep your clothes on. The moment in which the game will be over should be preliminary decided. Will you take it to the end, or you will leave some sort of fabric on your bodies, like underwear? The strip poker can finish when one person goes all the way to Nudeville, or when there is just one remaining soul with something on his or her skin. We are more into the second version since it will prolong the time of the game and you don’t risk killing the fun before it had even started with few consecutive bad hands. Sabotaging a game of strip poker is completely forbidden! Oh, and you should talk about winning hands too. Options are two – either the highest hand holder takes no clothes off while everybody else strips or only the lowest hand gets to get cold. Generally, we covered the basics of the strip poker game. Of course, you should always play it with consenting people and never take advantage of anyone.
Play with the Hottest Models – Strip Poker Online
If you are lacking open-minded friends, we have great news! There is strip poker online for you to enjoy, although if we have to be honest, it takes away a bit from the fun. There are sites, in which you have your cards dealt and you should choose a photo of either a girl or a guy. The more you win, the more virtual money you gather. The photos change depending on your cash balance – you win, they strip. In many sites, you can choose the ‘degree’ of the photo, let’s say. In the meaning that you can set your preference at ‘no sex’ which will show you at most a person with underwear at the end of the game. There are some different settings too. Like soft… which will leave your opponent nude. Furthermore, some sites can also give you the opportunity to see some insights of his or her intimate parts but here we are heading to a completely different storyline so…
You can also upload photos of yours and play against real people. We were quite disappointed by the strip poker online and keep insisting that the live experience is much better… The virtual version seems quite boring and sad, with just those photos where no real interaction is present. We wholeheartedly can say that we prefer the regular video poker game where you can at least win some cash. There are places, on the other hand, where you can also go with a live cam, against complete strangers. We admit it – it is much more fun, but you have to be perfectly comfortable with it. And still, while more scenographic than the ‘simple’ version, it is somehow too impersonal. Of course, you can always land on nice and funny people, so heads up – it is not an option to discard completely!
When All the Clothes Are Down It’s Time to…
…say goodbye! Nothing different than just a farewell, so don’t go into nasty fantasies… As we said many movies used strip poker in their plots. It really adds some spice to any mix. For example, one of the most beloved TV series – ‘Friends’ – also included a scene of the game. Poor Joey Tribbiani had no luck and was quite the spectacle as well. Another famous strip poker part is played in the second American Pie. The list is quite long and not all the movies are worthy. But the subject of our article gave a huge load of ideas to directors which resulted in some quality time for people in cinemas…
Strip poker is, as we already mentioned earlier, much more popular among youngsters and with their creativity, different ‘updates’ were added. Like Truth or Dare mashup, where not only you strip from your clothes if you lose, but you also have to either say the truth or fulfil a challenge. Let’s just say that in those type of strip poker, things can get heated much faster… In all means, no matter if you are playing the regular game or not, you must feel completely comfortable. For the perfect game, you might also need a single spoon of exhibitionism added to your drink! We hope that you enjoyed our article as much as we liked the entire strip poker research! Oh, and remember that sometimes it’s actually funnier to lose…
