I would be willing to play I just don't know how to play the game itself, so if all possible someone willing to send rules and what not threw a pm would be cool :)
Nothing personal, but I think such a game would work better with people that actually have at least enough interest in the games themselves to have learned them somewhere during their life. Also, by explaining the game to you, you would be completely unaware of the tactics. This game is not exactly desperate for players, so I doubt it's required to strain ourselves to get everyone in on the game.
I'm thinking about keeping the game open for roughly 24 hours, so we don't penalize anyone on timezones, and then discuss how many and who we take into the game (though we always have the option to split the game over two "tables", bringing them together when around half of the players decided to bail out).
For the nature of this game, I think it's recommended NOT to look at the O/O's of the other players, and instead just pick some dares that interest you. People never ever have to perform the dare. They can buy out by dropping an article of clothing, or quit the poker game if they happened to be naked already (perhaps withdraw to the lounge couch, where they're still available for dares, though some people might want to leave the RP entirely once they're out of the game). If we'd always be considerate of each other's O/O's then there'd be no stripping or surrendering.
Of course we could have a few barred topics, such as scat, watersports, and anything that causes injuries.
There's also the thing about the dealer, which has a few possible solutions:
- The dealer goes round, meaning another player is the dealer every round. The current dealer would sit out the round, as (s)he's aware of the other players' cards. Disadvantage: Not everyone might be interested in keeping track of the required information.
- The dealer does not participate in the game, but can be incorporated into certain dares. This was part of the original idea, where all the participants were ladies, and only the dealer was a guy, basically a tool that the ladies could use on each other. During prediscussion, this idea was dropped to be more acceptable to both genders, making this idea less workable.
- All players play in couples, meaning they're allowed a combined amount of clothing (how this number is divided is up to the players themselves) and when given a dare, they can pick who performs the dare (unless the dare specifies interaction between the both of them), to prevent unwanted MM or FF material. Cards are dealt per couple, with the exception of a single couple where one player is the dealer, and the other player is the only player actually doing the betting/raising/folding.
- We use a pokerroom or a chatbot to play out the rounds. Would require everyone to be online at the same time. Doesn't seem very feasable, and would also rush the betting rounds.
