As long as you have the fraction the right way around, and include the quote marks, there should be literally no way to exceed 1.

It's fellow extremelyrarers, like strip jumanji, are actually the result of 'The first such strip, "Jumanji,"', "RICHARD PRYOR LIVE ON THE SUNSET STRIP, JUMANJI."

I have to say, I have definitely played strip Magic: The Gathering on multiple occasions. It requires some preparation and rules, but it works.

In college, some guys at my dorm invented "Strip Calculus." I believe the rules were you had to remove an article of clothing whenever you found a limit that didn't exist.

I have also played Strip Mythbusters with my boyfriend. We removed clothing whenever a myth was found plausible or something exploded, and we drank whenever a myth was disproved or they made a bad pun. If you use those rules, though, you have to be very careful with your episode selection, or it can go much faster or slower than you'd like.

I'm definitely spending the rest of this day thinking up rules for Strip Settlers. One idea: instead of the Robber stopping resource production whenever you roll the number it's on, strip instead. No one likes the way the Robber is supposed to work anyway. And I find Strip Magic plausible, considering some of the guys in my friend's dorm play a Pokemon TCG drinking game regularly.

Also, I'm a fan of Axis and Allies/ occational game of Battlecry, any ideas for strip versions of those games, I mean they have about 100 variations as it is, and perhaps this one would convince females to consider these fine games?

Google suggestions for "strip " are funny. 3rd one is settlers of catan. And there are 5,280 results for strip global thermonuclear war. This gives it a frequency of 16.4583333.

Why not strip Scrabble? That and poker are the only "strip" games I've played - and I've probably played strip scrabble more than poker.

There are actually quite a few hits for it too. We usually just have the lowest score of each round have to remove something. The problem is that it's less random than poker, and generally some players will be much better than others.

Probably because their lawyers figured out pretty quickly that the game long predates Disney or the Pooh books, with different names. People have been building bridges for thousands of years, and the game has to have been independently invented at least several hundred times during all that history. So all that would happen is that people would switch to a different name for the game, wiping out a minor bit of free advertising for their property.

(I had to check with google/wikipedia to verify that Poohsticks is the game I thought it was. Yup. I remember playing it as a kid back in the 50s & 60s, but it had a different name in that time & place.)

Strip Jenga turns up in the first or second group, was omitted, and sounds like a whole lot of fun. Nothing to do with me being REALLY good at Jenga, of course.

This one comic has pulled me out of a years long track record of lurking. Because, it must be admitted, strip monopoly was one of the highlights of my high school years. If someone landed on your property, you could demand monetary payment, or you could use your clothes to barter. Being both bad at monopoly and the only girl, I feel I got taken advantage of more than I realized at the time...

...hmm...

Oddly enough Global Thermonuclear War would probably make a rather good strip game as everyone always looses.

I tried googling "strip cricket" to see what would come up and all the results were references to strips - as in football strips - as in what they wear when playing sports...


well, this wasn't completely disappointing. My google found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKou9G58Dis

I have to say that I am happy to read that someone else has played Strip Tetris.

About strip magic the gathering and opponent you don want to see naked... yesterday, in the prerelease 4 2HG were mixed ones (out of 10), it is quite higher than it used to be.

Strip Mastermind? You'd be taking off various items, but put them back on at the end of each round. At the end, if you win, you'd be revealing the correct body parts.

Strip monopoly anyone?

(Of course, that particular version involves a bit more than just stripping... but where's the fun if the game ends just when everyone's finally naked? That's when it's just getting started!)

Hey, you guys remember how people sent in fan-made photos based on comic #249 and comic #305?

The photos people send in for this one should be... interesting.
Or creepy as hell.

Oh, and for those who haven't seen it, there's a webcomic of the decade poll: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/comic-riffs/2010/01/the_best_webcomic_its_time_to.html ...And xkcd is losing, big time, holding a mere 4% at the time that I write this. We're losing to Penny Arcade, Perry Bible Fellowship, and Hark! A Vagrant, who have 38%, 36%, and 7% respectively.
IMO, we should flood the poll and raise xkcd's standing to at least third place, and maybe show Questionable Content and Order of the Stick some love as well.

Strip Scrabble anyone?
Alternative to Scrabble Shots. Every round the person with the lowest score drinks or removes an article of clothing.
Great fun at nerd parties... cuz... you know... there aren't many people there.
Just for the love of God... Please make sure there are females involved in Strip Scrabble.

Scroll down to the last comment, that pol's results have been totaled up already. The finals should be starting sometime today and I THINK that xkcd made it. I'll try to post a link when it comes up.
