Pirate Pick Up Game

Ahoy there me hearties! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. So in honor of the occasion, I have a pirate game.

And here are some tips if you want to talk like a pirate while playing:

  • Slur your words together
  • Use “yer” or “ya” instead of “your”
  • Use lots of pirate slang
  • Make plenty of gestures
  • Substitute “me” for “my”

Pirate Pick Up


• Plastic drink cups (one per player)
• Candy canes (one per player)
• Bag of regular sized pretzels
• Large bowl
• Timer

Punch a hole in the bottom of each cup and put a candy cane in it to make a “hook”.

1. Put the pretzels in the bowl.
2. Give each player a “hook”
3. See how many pretzels they can get out of the bowl with their hooks.
4. The player with the most pretzels wins.

This can also be turned into a relay.
