Make sure you have a clear and clean playing field. You will need lots of space. Divide your playing area by it’s length into three equal zones. Tape masking tape to the floor to mark one third of your field then another strip of tape to mark your second zone and your third zone. Every “X” below represents a strip of tape running between your zones the width of the room.
Zone 1 X Zone 2 X Zone 3
The room has now become an imaginary ship and the leader is the captain. Zone 1 is “Quarter Deck.” Zone 2 is “Main Deck.” Zone 3 is “Poop Deck.” The captain of the ship will yell out a deck name. The students must run to that deck to be safe. If they are the last to step into a deck they are out. If they cross into the wrong deck they are out. A good captain uses voice inflection, points to the wrong deck, and is a master of misdirection. Last person left is the winner.
