What you need: You need several rings of keys and a blindfold.

How to play: Have all players sit in a circle. Choose one player to be the pirate. The pirate must sit in the middle of the circle wearing the blindfold. Place several rings of keys in front of the pirate.

The rules: A player is chosen to sneak up to the middle of the circle to take a set of keys without the pirate hearing him. The pirate gets three guesses as to who the key thief is.

How to win: If the pirate correctly guesses the identity of the thief, he is the winner. If he doesn't correctly guess, the thief is the winner.

What else you need to know: You can play this game in rounds. Keep up with the winners of each round, and give a grand prize to the person who wins the most times.
