A great all-play interactive game that gets everyone up and moving. This game is an excellent group opening activity that involves everyone. This game tires students out quickly and is so much fun.

The first mate calls out orders and everyone must follow. If you cannot complete the order, you are out. Play until one student standing or just have fun. You could use this game in connection with a pirate theme night or in tandem with a study on respect or following directions.

Game Play Options
• Five Minute Video – just play the video and let the fun happen.
• First Mate Directed – pick one person to be the First Mate. The First Mate could be the youth leader, a student leader, or this may be a great opportunity to let a quieter student give directions. The First Mate then calls out different actions, which are shown on the screen.

This Resource includes:
• Five minute “start and play” game video (MP4)
• Seven individual game actions (MP4 & JPEG)
• Title slide & Instruction slide (JPEG)

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
