If you are looking to spice up your love life, why not try a game of strip checkers? The game is as easy as you remember, but now you really can lose your shirt playing. However, everyone is a winner when playing strip checkers.
Before playing strip checkers (or strip chess), make sure you are comfortable with the person you are playing with and the game itself. It may seem like a good idea when you start playing, but if you aren't comfortable, you may regret your decision. Also, make sure it is a fair game. Each person playing should have the same number of clothes on before the game begins.
Original Strip Checkers
In original strip checkers, each player writes the name of articles of clothing on the underside of each checker piece. The checkers are then randomly placed on the board.
When a checker is captured, the person whose chip was captured must remove the article of clothing on that chip. If the clothing item is covered by another, the clothing does not have to be removed until later. For example, if you are supposed to remove your sock but you still have shoes on, you would not take off your sock until your shoe is off.
How Much Clothing to Wear
In checkers each side has 12 pieces. For stripping, you can wear 12 items and have each item represented by one chip. However, wearing 12 pieces of clothes may not be very practical. An alternative is to assign multiple checker pieces to one piece of clothing. For example, two checker pieces could be assigned to your shirt. When playing, you would only take off your shirt when both checker pieces labeled as your shirt are captured.
Alternative Strip Checkers
If the original version of strip checkers is too tame for you, consider this more advanced version.
How to Play
You start by writing down a fantasy you would like to perform with your lover.
Each player then strips down to four pieces of clothing. Men should have on a shirt, undershirt, underwear and pants. Women should wear a shirt, bra, underwear and pants.
Then begin playing checkers like normal. Each time you capture a checker piece, you remove one item of clothing. Continue doing this until both players are naked.
Continue playing, but now when you make a capture, you can choose to do something to your partner (or have your partner do something to you). You can choose a kiss, a short massage or whatever else you would like. Play continues until someone wins. The winner then reveals what fantasy they chose, and then the lovers will act it out together.
Make or Buy the Game
All you need to play is a checker board and pieces. For the original version, you will also want a pen to write the name of clothing, or you can use paper and scotch tape.
If you find that you enjoy the game and don't want to hassle with making your own checker pieces, consider purchasing a strip checker set. You can find it at the following stores:
- Amazon.com. This is the basic version of the game that has one piece of clothing listed underneath each checker piece.
- Board Game Geek.com. This version features the more advanced checkers game, where you have to capture multiple pieces before you can remove certain clothing items.
- 1-800 Get Silly.com. This is the same version as the one sold at Board Game Geek.
Whether you are looking to try something different with your lover or play a high stakes board game, you are sure to have a fun and revealing time playing strip checkers.
