Game description

Pirates must be able to move around surely, not only on the ship's deck, but also high up on the mast of a moving ship. We will stretch two tight ropes between two trees at a height of approx. 50-100 cm, or so high so that no-one injures themselves. The kids must balance on the plank.


Walk over a wooden beam laid on the ground while blindfolded. Or walk across a beam as quickly as possible.


Which pirate will manage the longest distance without falling off the tree trunk/beam? Which pirate is the fastest at running over the thin plank?
