"Strip Chess" was played in the movie Two Weeks Notice. The rules were not given.

I found this variant online. Capturing a piece (not a pawn) results in clothing being replaced by the capturer or removed by the player whose unit was captured.

Ordinarily one piece is removed, or two if the capturer is a pawn and/or the queen is captured. Clothing can only be replaced if the capturing unit is a king or queen. If the king or queen captures the enemy queen, two pieces of clothing are removed by the side whose queen was captured, or two pieces replaced by the capturer, or one each.

Checkmate is three pieces of clothing.

Castling allows the player to replace one piece of clothing.

Keep playing chess games until a game ends with one player naked and the other not. If both are naked, it is a draw.
