All right kiddies, here's the plan:
I'm hard at work getting six chests(One big, five small), six maps, six keys and about 30-40 wooden swords made.
Also purchasing a meep-ton of meat and enough whiskey, rum and beer to f#ck up the Fifth Fleet.
These are all prizes and props for the party I'll be throwing on Beachgoat's turf the weekend before Halloween(Oct 27-28)
I'd like to see at least 30 or so people(up to a hundred or more) attending this year so I'm sparing no expense.
If I can get a fair number of people to play along, there will be kid-friendly games and some "JESUS-CHRIST-is-this-sh#t-even-LEGAL-in-this-state?!" type games for the older crowd(see below).
Remember this is the PLANNING STAGE, so comments and ideas are more than welcome.
The kids start first:
There will be six VERY well-drawn maps being handed out for the winners of:
1) A simple footrace around some obstacles on the beach.
2) The best pirate costume.
3) The scariest pirate tale told over a campfire(Written down by mum and dad is fine)
4)-6) same dice game as the adults, minus the rum.
Later that night:
A friendly game of DICE.
(Here's where the rum comes in)
1) Roll for playing order.
2) DRINK you meepS! (It's FREE after all...)
3) Roll the dice.
If the number is "7" or "11" you drink and lose your turn. (Sound familiar?)
Any other number, roll again.
SECOND AND SUBSEQUENT ROLLS:
If the number is "7" or "11" you DRINK and lose your turn.
If the number is anything else, DRINK and roll again.
If the number is the same as your first roll, CONGRATS meepGOT!
-You get a SWORD! Pro-Tip: If it hurts, try holding it by the OTHER end.
If you already have a sword, trade the other one for one of six KEYS.
Once you've got a key, GET THE F#CK OUT and let some other a##hole win once.
Game is played until all six keys are handed out, the cops break it up, or we're all
too f#cked up to remember what we were doing.
Six groups of two will take the chests and hide them in the pre-selected areas.
Then the map holders will try to locate them. (Shouldn't be TOO hard, seeing as somebody's gotta stand by to make sure some random meepbag doesn't run off with it.)
Hopefully everybody finds their chest.
I'll assign a number to each in case somebody locates someone else's by mistake.
There's five small chests with 20$-ish prizes inside and one big REALLY NICE chest with a SERIOUS(@$300 retail) prize inside.
Then it's just a matter of trying out the keys.
the keyholder and kid who located the chest will have to sort out who wants the prize and who wants the chest it came in.
That's all I have so far.
I'm putting this out now so that hopefully some of you will be motivated to get off your meeps and come out.
