Clear the Deck

  • Indoors/outdoors
  • Equipment: None
  • Formation: Group

The four sides of the room are given names, i.e., 'Clear the deck!'; 'Man the boat!'; 'Shore leave!'; 'In the galley!'.

When the leader calls out any of those commands, the Cubs rush to that side of the room.

There are extra commands as well: 'Boom coming over!' - lie flat on the floor; 'Admiral coming!' - all stand and salute.

No one is ever out but the last Cub to obey the order loses a life and rolls down a sock or rolls up a sleeve.

Note: In the original version of the game the four sides of the room are Port, Starboard, Bow and Ster, although this is merely a matter of choice.
