Introduction

This is a fun game to play with your friends and family, and it helps you keep fit too.

You don't need to dress up as a pirate, but if you have a pirate costume in one of your drawers why not wear it for this game?

How to play

One person pretends to be the captain of the ship and shouts a command to the rest of the crew.

Each command describes an action. The crew must listen carefully to the command, then act it out.

If a player makes a mistake they are out of the game. The last player left in the game is the new captain and will make up a new command to add to the other ones.
