The printouts for this sexy game for couples were brought to life by the stellar Courtney of Paperelli designs. She seriously brought her A-GAME and we love them! Totally man-approved and not too girly!
Challenge your sweetie to some strip basketball!
Before my hubby got home, I printed out the challenge invitations. I laid them out on the bed with some sporty gear for both of us to suit up in (at least 5 pieces of clothing each), although I knew we wouldn’t be wearing it long! I picked some tight spandex shorts, and a sporty top for me, and made sure to set out his favorite team shirt (Go CHARLOTTE HORNETS!).
Horse Basketball Set Up
Print out the letters of HORSE and set up your basketball hoop in a cleared space of your room! I found that on top of our dresser was the perfect height. You can use a mini kid’s basketball hoop, and if you don’t have a mini basketball hoop, its an easy find on Amazon!
I used our (clean) office trash can, a piece of a cardboard box, and the printable strip horse backboard to make a little DIY hoop as another option. You can download the template at the end of the post if you want to make your own. I picked up the ball at the dollar store!
I grabbed some water bottles and set them out too, in case we got sweaty and thirsty from this intensive bedroom game 😉 It could be fun to grab your sweetie’s favorite flavor of Gatorade for hydration too!
Strip Horse Game Play
After our kids went to bed, the buzzer went off and it was GAME ON! We turned on the “Space Jam” soundtrack for some pump up jams (any 90s kids out there?!).
Here’s a quick refresher on the rules of HORSE:
- One person takes a shot from anywhere in the room. We had fun shooting from silly spots like inside the closet or on the bed (the bed was MY money shot!)
- If the first player makes their shot, the other person must make the exact same shot.
- If the second person misses that same shot, they get a letter of HORSE. The first person to have all the letters of HORSE loses. 🙁
If either of us were to get a letter of HORSE, we would place one of the letter tiles on our side of the dresser. And of course to make it a little more intimate, with each letter we would remove a piece of clothing. Add this fun date idea to your Pinterest board!
Strip Game Timeouts
As a fun twist to the game, use time out cards that you can pull at any time in the strip basketball game! Each spouse gets a 20-second timeout and a 1-minute timeout to use at their discretion. Start the timer and have fun making out, dancing or doing whatever you please (EXCEPT taking off clothes) during your time out!
