It was awesome and now I have requests from my nieces and nephews along with my own kids on how they want theirs to go.
Scavenger Hunt for Kids - Operation Pirate Party for ages 7 - 13
"I would like to take the time to thank you for your Pirate Game. I took a short survey from all of the kids afterward to see if anything didn't go okay or what they liked the most and they were all adamant about liking EVERYTHING. It was awesome and now I have requests from my nieces and nephews along with my own kids on how they want theirs to go. THANK YOU!"
This is a treasure hunt game 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). You can have up to 6 teams and each team must visit 6 "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 6 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) at each port of call. 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.
