Quilter's Strip Poker

What a fun game to play at a guild meeting, ice breaker, retreat or where ever a group of quilters gather.

One of the activities was a game of Quilter's Strip Poker. It reminded me of "Bunco", where there are a group of women at each table, and a die is rolled until a bell is rung. Then you move tables and play again with different ladies until the bell is rung again.

The die is specially marked - each side has either a "C", "L", "R", "X" or a Star. (We took a regular die and used a Scripto pen to mark the sides. A die has SIX sides. We used the sixth side as a 'PASS' or 'Lose a Turn').

2.5" Strips of fabric are used instead of chips. It is quite a lot of fun when you win the bounty of strips in the middle!

Quilter's Strip Poker

To Begin, all players put 1 strip in the center of table.

Players take turns clockwise rolling the die once for each turn.

C = player puts 1 strip in CENTER of the table.

L = player gives 1 strip to player on her LEFT.

R = player gives 1 strip to player on her RIGHT.


* Star - player TAKES ALL the strips in the center of the table

X - player LOSES ONE TURN (a die has six sides) or you could use one of the other options for the sixth side.

Then all players, again , put 1 strip in the center of the table. Continue playing.

When bell rings, move to another table taking your strips with you.
