The blind pirate is a calm game. The pirate is guarding his treasure. The other players have to steal the treasure without being caught by the pirate.
If necessary, you can play the game without any special equipment. However,
- blindfolds for the pirate would be great
- as treasure, any smaller item can be taken (scarf, keys, coins, etc.)
The pirate is sitting in the center of the room, the treasure is laying on the floor right in front of him. He closes his eyes (or uses the blindfolds). All the other players are standing along the walls (or outside the playing area) and are as quite as possible.
The referee appoints a certain player that may try to steal the treasure. He sneaks to it and tries to remove it. If he manages to do so, he gets a point.
The pirate may defend itself by pointing in the direction of an approaching thief. If the direction is (roughly) correct, the thief is out of the game. Of course, the pirate may not just point aimlessly around ...
- Guardian game is quite similar, but its a tag game and can be played by larger groups.
