No, I did not say strip poker. That’s right, folks; this is all about strip Trivial Pursuit for those who are daring enough! And not to worry, if your teens love trivia too you will find a family-friendly version of reverse strip Trivial Pursuit so that the whole family can play. So whether you are planning a fun night for adults only or a little family fun, read on for rules and ideas for your game.
You do not need much to get started with your game. Grab a copy of Trivial Pursuit, invite a group of friends, and you are ready to go.
As with any strip game, you will want to invite people with whom you will be comfortable. Whether you play with a group of close friends of the same or opposite sex, or whether you want to play with your romantic partner, make sure you are ready to be exposed, so to speak.
You may want to have a copy of the rules handy as well. That way you can make sure everyone is on the same page before you start the game.
If you are playing the family-friendly version, you will need a few more supplies, but we will get into that later.
As in strip poker, the rules are simple: Lose, and you will have to remove clothing. Setting initial ground rules will be important here. For instance, are players allowed to wear layers of clothing? i.e. a jacket over a sweatshirt over a t-shirt?
Here are some variations of rules that have been used to play.
Rules Idea #1
1. All players wear seven items of clothing.
2. Play a game of Trivial Pursuit according to the normal rules.
3. When a player earns a piece of pie, that player chooses another player to remove a piece of clothing.
4. When a player is down to his or her last article of clothing, he can no longer be chosen.
5. Play in this manner until there is a winner!
Rules Idea #2
1. Determine how many pieces of clothing each person can start with or allow players to dress how they wish.
2. Play Trivial Pursuit according to the normal rules.
3. Whenever someone answers a question wrong, he has to remove a piece of clothing.
4. The game is over when one player has lost his last piece of clothing.
Rules Idea #3
1. Each player must wear colors of clothing that correspond to the category colors.
2. Determine the amount of clothing/number of items each player can wear.
3. Play Trivial Pursuit according to the normal rules.
4. When someone gets a question wrong, he or she has to remove a piece of clothing whose color corresponds to the category color.
5. If the player does not have any clothing of that color left, you can decide if they are marked safe or if someone else gets to choose a color for them.
6. Play until someone wins the game.
Rules to Determine Beforehand
1. Are some clothing items that come in pairs considered one item or two? (Socks, shoes, etc.)
2. Is there a required number of clothing items per player?
3. Will you count glasses or other accessories as items to be removed?
Family-Friendly Reverse Strip Trivial Pursuit
If you want a family fun night with parents and children/teens, this is a great variation of Trivial Pursuit.
Instead of taking clothes off, one must put clothes on. It does not matter how many pieces of clothing each person starts with since clothing will be added rather than removed.
For this version of the game, you will need a large bag filled with miscellaneous clothing and accessories. Choose age-appropriate items, but having bras and panties in the bag is fun if the kids are old enough.
As you play the game, when someone gets a piece of pie, all other players have to reach blindly into the bag and pull something out that they must wear overtop of their existing attire.
The items can be worn as intended or, if they do not fit, worn in any kind of interesting way. Underwear on the head, anyone?
