“Argh! remember! where there be sea there be pirates”
I’m talking about a well-planned pirate adventure so steeped in pirate lure and mystery that the
kids will be thinking about it weeks afterward.
Last year I created a log book that will work with the map and clues to move the game
forward. The entire adventure is based on finding the lost treasure chest key of that infamous
pirate, Bartholomew Black Bart. The locked treasure chest is sitting out on the lawn in a ton of
sand surrounded by coins, jewels, silver platters, swords.. guarded by a pirate skeleton…
And so the game begins !
“For hundreds of years pirates and would be respectable citizens have lusted for
the lost treasure chest key of that infamous pirate, Bartholomew "Black Bart"
Roberts. A recent discover of Captain Bart’s lost log book filed with cryptic clues
leading to the treasure. You have been chosen for this quest – see if you can
unravel the cryptic clues leading to the keys location guided with this book. The
Captain was a man ahead of his time in many ways and not all clues are as simple
as they first appear. “
This year I’m tapping into the cursed pirate gold idea. I am working on the same type of
components as last year – Log Book, Treasure map – however this year it will be given in
pieces, and cursed pirate gold, which in this case are pieces of 8.
The following will be mailed to each child along with a list of the crew:
This is no easy Journey, for the Treasure you seek
Pay close attention to the words that I speak
Cursed gold there be, that’s without a doubt
A perilous journey filled with pirate lore everyone dreams about
Only a cunning crew will be able to find this plunder
A handful of the lost cursed coins leave many with curious wonder
What do they mean? Is the coin a starting clue?
I’d spend the time to study them if I were you.
