"strip cornhole game" = 1/48000 = 0.00002 = 0.002% (kinda surprising, Seems like a natural.)

"strip paintball" = 7280/19700000 = 0.000369 = 0.0369%

Ouch. I'll take a break now.

Oh, there are video results for that one. For the record, that's not why I'm taking a break.

I run a website dedicated to selling videos of people (mostly girls) playing a wide variety of strip games, so I got a real kick out of this strip. I've already used some of the games in the strip and in this thread, but there are plenty of good ideas here I haven't seen yet.

"Strip Autonomous Robot Design Competition" = 0
I'm surprised this one hasn't been investigated yet. I mean, this is XKCD, right?

"strip nomic" = 2/4210000 = 0.000000475 = 0.000475% (I guess most folks don't like "strip-" games where the rules keep changing.)

I made sure to download this. The original versions of the comics will be very valuable one day.

It may be fixed later; I've saved the original as proof.
Fixed now. Original:

How did he forget Quidditch???

"strip quidditch": 322 hits
"quidditch": about 1.6 million hits

With the ratio of |strip quidditch|/|quidditch| being approximately 0.02%, this is obviously a rare--but not very rare--game. 8)

I wonder, how would one go about playing strip L5R? I suppose you could force a limit of only four articles of clothing per person, and have clothing removed every time a province gets taken, but that seems overly simplistic.

I must say that there's two possible reasons strip M:TG is rarer than some other games.
either:
-the fact that female players are almost nonexistent is contributing to the lack of popularity of this game,
OR
-the fact that the internet doesn't have millions of strategy guides, stores, and databases for games like pictionary and spin the bottle.

also, Bosium Strip is the only reason there's any results for strip MTG

I guess in Agricola - "whenever anything on your farm reproduces or gets ploughed remove a piece of clothing."


I assumed a player would be required to remove an article of clothing whenever they boggarted the livestock.

Chess by correspondence may be problematic, but network/skype chess with a webcam...?
Strip Bullshit may be the most offensive card game ever.
What about PC games? Worms would be an excellent candidate, as would Wii games.
Shoot 'em ups like War Rock and Quake are simple enough, but I suspect that the full implications of strip games based on the Total War series are best left unexplored.

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.

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.

As promised.

Just about had a game of Strip Magic once... though we just kinda were too lazy to do it... and we were not quite inebriated enough, or at all, for that matter.

for <GAME NAME> = geocaching
n = GOOGLE HITS FOR "STRIP <GAME NAME>"/GOOGLE HITS FOR "<GAME NAME>"
n = GOOGLE HITS FOR "STRIP geocaching"/GOOGLE HITS FOR "geocaching"
n = 135/4,240,000
n = 3.18396226*10^(-5)
n = .00318%
.01% > n > 0

Therefore:
Strip Geocaching is extremely rare

I had to seriously laugh when I read this. In mine and my boyfriend's first year together, we took a trip to Virginia Beach. One of the first things we did upon checking into our hotel room was play a game of Strip-Magic: The Gathering.

Ah, true dork love. <3

How did nobody mention Strip Mario Kart? Combines two child-inappropriate things, nudity and swearing!

Strip Mario Kart: 325,000
Mario Kart: 15,000,000

This gets in between 1% and 2%. Who knew it was so popular?

P.S. Among the front page google results, I found an actual request looking for people to play Strip Mario Kart. o.O
