Every couple starts with six chips. Three chips are marked with the name of the male partner, the other three chips are marked with the name of the female partner.
Every round has one winner and one loser. If couple A sends a bet to couple B, and B calls the bet, then they're the winner and the loser. If the bet was true, then A is the winner and B is the loser. If the bet was false, then B is the winner and A is the loser.
The loser couple has to choose: Strip or Dare. If they decide to strip, one of the partners must discard an article of clothing. Couples need to decide for themselves who will do the stripping. Obviously, a couple that dropped all seven articles of clothing cannot choose to strip and must take a dare.
If the loser couple decides to dare, the winner couple sends them a dare. The loser couple again has two choices. Either one of them (or they, if it requires interaction) performs the dare, or they give one of their chips to the winner couple. This can be either one of their own chips, or a chip they won from another couple.
I suggest NOT looking at other people's O/O's when making up a dare! People can choose if they take a dare or pay a chip, so they never ever have to perform a dare if they don't want to. It would be a boring game if we'd be considerate to each other's O/O's all the time, as it would mean there wouldn't be any chips going around.
If one of your chips left home, and you won someone else's chip, you can always force a trade, offering a chip that doesn't belong to either yourself or your partner to receive a chip that does. This trade cannot be declined. However, nobody else can force that on you. If you're being a playmate, but your partner managed to collect another chip, then only you and your partner can decide this. How you and your partner work this out is up to you.
(There is one exception to this, and that is that the chip with your name on it is offered as the return chip for a forced deal. Assume for a moment that you have one chip with my name on it, and I have one chip with your name on it. If I want my chip back and offer your chip in return, you cannot decline the deal, even if you don't want your own chip back.)
Likewise, when all three of your chips left home, it would be pretty boring, if they were just collecting dust in different stacks. Therefor, if a couple managed to get their hands on two chips of one person, and they have at least one other chip not belonging to themselves, then they can force trade that other chip for the third chip of that person, drastically raising the chance that you end up as someone's playmate.
If the logic is beyond you, then you'll have to trust me that this should raise longevity and increase the chance on playmates functioning.
You can't dare someone to take their clothes off, as they just chosen a dare in order not to strip. You can however offer a chip for someone to take off an article. Daring someone to take something off that didn't count as clothes could be possible, but doesn't that make it effectively another article?
I still think it's a strip game, so clothes should come off. My opinion is that if you want to keep the stockings on, you'll have to reserve an article of clothing for it, meaning your couple has six other clothes to play with. Imagine for a moment that my character has a fetish about having his member rubbed through his boxershort. Does that mean I'm allowed to keep my boxershort on? I see the point of jewelry, but not of stockings, but since the rest seems to disagrees with me, I'll rest myself with the majority.
If both members of a couple have only one chip left, they should only take a dare if at least one partner is willing to bet their last chip. If a couple ends up naked with only one chip left each, they should bow out of the game (not the RP) and be spectators. People can still (and are encouraged to) use spectators in dares of other people, though of course everyone is able to decline a dare that's not meant for him or herself. Of course, couples with no clothes and no chips left (or one partner spent the last chip, and the other partner does not wish to spend the last chip) are also spectators.
This rule is not replaced. Not everyone is interested in becoming a playmate, and those people that don't want to become a playmate should bail out of the game when their last chip is all they have left.
And yeah, the dares mostly rely on sense and maturity. Ok, so no toiletplay whatsoever, including enemas. No scars/branding/tattoos/mutilation. Other than that, use your head. The only one that's open to discussion is exhibitionism to the outside world (streaking/cameras), but people could simply buy themselves out of such dares.
I'm still working out details with Candylips, which I guess we should complete before I post the room (Sigh, I end up being the host for both poker games
). Haibane and QM seem done. Not sure about Jeramiahh and Sabetha. It would be nice if we could find Idej a partner, but we could start the initial posts of the thread.
Where do we want to start the story? Do we want the couples to come inside, or are they already installed nicely. In the first case, we should've agreed on the game beforehand, else it might take a rather long while to naturally grow towards the game.
