Strip poker is a variant of the card game of poker, in which the rules require players to remove articles of clothing in response to various events. The first Strip Poker computer game was written by the German Gamedesigner Dieter Eckhardt in the late 1970’s using the computers of an astronomical observatory near Düsseldorf.
The game can be played based on any variety of poker, with the same number of players, dealing and betting rules, etc. There are a number of ways in which the rules can then be developed into strip poker. For example, at the end of each hand:
- The player with the worst hand must remove a piece of their clothing; or
- The player who loses the most money in that round must remove one; or
- The player with the best hand may remove it from them; or
- The player with the best hand may choose which player must lose an article; or
- All players except the winner of the hand lose an article. Note that this makes for an extremely brief game, unless fully-nude players are required to perform some action when they lose a hand, in which case it may even continue after all players are nude.
- Alternatively, whenever a player runs out of chips, they must trade a piece of clothing for a new (usually fixed) number of chips.
- If players are then allowed to “buy back” clothing when they have won more chips, this can result in a zero-sum game, where there is no long-term net loss of clothing. (With two people, this will have the consequence that only one of them is missing clothing.) (Note that “buying back” may be disallowed, so that the aggregate nudity is always increasing.)
As a further variant, players who have lost all of their clothing, achieving nudity, must perform sex acts.
