What we have come up with is this: >> No 1000 point barrier >> Strip an article when you bust on a turn >> When someone wins the game, all losers remove a piece First we tried the 1000 point barrier with and without stripping until you make the table. It took much of the fun out of the game. The game starts slow because people are careful at first without the barrier, but then it ramps up because people are naturally competetive. Also, if you are risque enough, have the owner collect notecards from each of the players placing a bid or wagers that they are willing to offer of themselves. Can be as XXX or PG-13 as you want. Put the notecards in the prize server and the winner of each game gets a random prize notecard!
