This creative, fun pirate party game includes a step by step organizer guide, invitations, thank you notes, support from the game designer & more.
This is an outdoor pirate’s game for kids that is part Survivor, part Fear Factor and part Pirates of the Caribbean.
There is a real treasure to be found at the end of the game by one lucky team (who will of course share their booty with all other teams).
Each team must visit six “ports” or locations (the number of locations can be cut down if need be).
The kids are divided into pirate crews (teams). The captains (selected by their crew) choose which famous pirate captain they want to be (all the team names are the names of famous pirates like Blackbeard, Captain Morgan, etc). Once the team has selected a captain and the captain has selected a name, the game can begin.
The object of the game is to visit all six ports on their itinerary and complete a pirate themed challenge (such as finding hidden coins, creating a pirate flag or scavenging for pirate items for a team photo). Some challenges have the team pirates competing against each other for a winner; other challenges have pirate crews (teams) competing against each other.
When the port challenges are done, the host will reveal which pirate crew won the chance to go find the hidden treasure – which they will share with all the other pirate crews of course.
The overall winner is NOT based on who finished the challenges first but is based on which team collected a specially marked prize during the Port Challenges (this is to assure the kids don’t rush through all the ports in an effort to finish first. The object is for them to have fun, not run).
You can have any number of teams but try to limit the number of members in each team to six or less. It works better with smaller teams as each child has a chance to contribute his or her ideas and talents for the next challenge.
This game will work for one team of children; the only change you’ll make is instead of teams competing against each other for a few of the challenges you’ll have the kids compete against each other.
If you have more than six teams you’ll have to start doubling up the teams at each port. It shouldn’t be a problem but it may get a bit crowded. You may want to think about setting up duplicate locations (two “sword fighting” areas for example) to keep things running smoothly for your large group of kids.
Age 7 – 12 or 13
PLEASE NOTE: An adult or teen will need to be at each of the six ports to run the game/challenge. We highly recommend you enlist good support if you have a large number of kids.
About 2 hours from start to finish. The more teams you have the longer the game will take.
