Chief Chaos BS: Games for a pirate party (43) RE: BS: Games for a pirate party 28 Jun 04

The one legged race (t'other got blowed off by some chain shot doncha' know!

I'm told that ring and hook is an authentic pirate game consisting of just a string with a ring and an eyehook. The string (line)is taped to the cieling (overhead in Naval parlance)while the eyehook is placed in the wall with just enough line for a good hand to swing the ring up and onto the hook. For a more piratey look you could use a child play pirate hook. Many a ship's captain has had to swear allegiance to the Republic of the Keys and fly a Florida flag after loosing this one.

I Like a good treasure hunt. Being that these are all older kids you could easily do a road rally treasure hunt. Navigating by compass (e.g. Set sail by the North Star and at (street name which is piratey) come about to # degrees. You can make it hard or easy and ask questions whose answers are shop names, locations, etc. all piratey of course). If you're near a railroad line you could have them count where X marks the spot or leave plastic dubloons at each sign with an X on it (that takes good eyes on the part of the navigator, the skipper of the ship should be watching the sea lanes!) Just make sure you do this before they get a ration of grog.
No drinkin' and sailin says I! Aaaarrrr!
