Heave-ho, me hearties! Use bright Resene colours to create this pirate-tastic game.
Resene Ground Games with Mark Rayner - Project 06
You will need: Area of concrete approx 3m x 6m (prepped first with Resene Moss & Mould Killer and then waterblasted), duct tape, masking tape, paintbrushes (including artists' brushes), paint tray and roller, Resene Concrete Primer, Resene Lumbersider tinted to the following colours: Resene Alabaster, Resene Cinnamon, Resene Green Pea, Resene Japanese Laurel, Resene Milk Chocolate, Resene Nero, Resene Porsche, Resene Raven and Resene Tory Blue, tape measure.
To get the look: Use a tape measure as a rough guide when painting the balustrades and gang plank.
Other ideas for play: Play a fast-paced game of 'it' using a tennis ball - the sharks have to 'tag' each sailor with a tennis ball until one sailor remains - then everyone swaps sides and plays the game again.
Number of players: 10 or more.
Additional equipment: Blindfold.
How to play: One player is selected to be the pirate leader and one player is selected to be head shark - the remaining players are sailors on the boat. The shark takes their place in the 'water' and the pirate leader selects the first sailor to 'walk the plank'. The sailor is blindfolded and led to the start of the 'plank'. The sailor has to 'walk the plank' with the remaining sailors calling out directions (especially if they're getting too close to the edge!). Once the blindfolded sailor reaches the end of the plank, the other sailors call out 'stop!' and the blindfolded sailor has to jump to safety, landing with both feet on the island. If they land in the water (or walk off the plank at any time) they become a shark. The sharks are allowed to call out directions to confuse the blindfolded sailor. The game is over once all players have had a chance to walk the plank.
