Mutiny is a game which I have also heard called “human pinata”. In this game, the little pirates chase around the captain and steal his candy. This is a great outdoor game for VBS or youth group. If you play this for a themed vacation bible school or youth ministry meeting, have the captain dress up if possible.
- One foam pool noodle for each pirate (their swords)
- One bag for each pirate to put his booty in
- Plenty of candy
- Choose someone to be the captain. Often this is an adult or team leader.
- Give each of the pirates a foam pool noodle.
- Explain the rules and lay down the ground rules. Explain that the pirates are not allowed to beat the captain with their “swords”, only tap him.
- Let the pirates chase the captain around.
- When they touch him with their pool noodle, the captain must stop, grab a handful of candy, and throw it up in the air.
- While the pirates are grabbing candy, the captain can run away again.
- This continues until the captain runs out of candy.
- Everyone gets to keep the candy they collected.
