Every good pirate needs to know how to walk the plank. Arrrgh. A simple version of this game is to set a piece of wood with a brick under each end to lift the wood off the ground.

You can even add variations like walking backwards or with your eyes closed.
Try this cannon ball blast game by blowing up black balloons (cannonballs) and tying a string to each balloon. Next, tie the other end of the string to a party goers ankle.
