Today’s sport

This is a game you can play almost anywhere. It can show you the power in a piece of paper and a pencil. Our pirate themed game is called pencil wars. Here’s how you can play:

Materials needed:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Markers (Optional)
  • Pencil Crayons (Optional) 
  • Your imagination 

Step 1: Make a game board. Your game board will be your piece of paper and should have drawings of the following:

  • 3 red ships (you can use pencil crayons or markers)
  • 3 blue ships (again use pencil crayons or markers)
  • A whirlpool in the middle of the game board
  • Islands and color for your ocean

Step 2: From there find an opponent and choose which color ships you want. 

Step 3: To move around, take your pencil and place the lead on the ship. Use your freedhand to then flick your pencil. If you hit an enemy ship you destroy it, if not you move your ship there by adding a drawing of the ship to the end of your flick. 

Step 4: The last player with ships standing wins, if you hit an island or a whirlpool with your pencil mark you also lose a ship. You can create ships with different abilities like ones that can take more than one hit or one that can go twice in one turn. It’s up to you.
