Farkle -- easy, cheap, tons of fun. Easy to play with almost any number.

The wife belly dances....I watch. It doesn't require much room, and usually ends up as exercise for both.

BEERHUNTER!

Take half a dozen cans of Beer, shake one up vigourously

then mix them up whilst your opponent shields his eyes.

He then picks a can and opens it against his temple (or in ear, up nose or in mouth ).

Can either keep the odds at 1 in 6 or keep lowering the odds each turn. Whoever loses gets to drink the can (remains ) asap.

Small things amuse small minds


CHEESEROLLING!

You need a round cheese. and a very steep (grassy) hill.

You roll the cheese down the hill and then everyone chases after it

Obviously some practical difficulties for onboard, unless yer name is Noah


Fuzzy Duck / Ducky Fuzz

Need a small group of people

1st person says "Fuzzy Duck", the response is "Ducky Fuzz" (and vice verce) - you either go in a circle as fast as poss (no hesitation) or aim the response at someone randomly...........penalty was usually a drink (which of course makes the game ever harder )..........."Does he F#ck?" / F#ck he Does!"

Again, small minds..............

I'm pretty sure that somebody did, unless Kordie knows a different version of Hide the Sausage than I'm familiar with.

Fair enough

I was fooled by the name. "Hide the sausage" could be a game played by those on a diet

Then again, the game I was suggesting may be more work than it is worth.

Moncala you drop stones in a series of dish's.
Thinking I should spice up my life and take up belly dancing. That would probably gross the kids out though.

We play Boggle. Addictive word game that is hard to stop, although some of the above mentioned sound fun too. We were wondering about Pull my finger and Hide the sausage tho...are those available at WalMart?

Uno with spoons. Best in groups, but fun with two. Play the traditional Uno game, only have spoons on the table, one less than the players involved. When a five is played, everyone grabs a spoon and the one spoonless has to pick up two extra cards. LOTS of fun when going to windward in a swell- The spoons are bouncing on the table anyway- and acrobatics are required to land one
Probably the most important effect- keeps the mind off unpleasant motion from the swells, and everyone has a good time in a tough situation.

We enjoy playing Uno and that sounds like a fun variant.

Plenty of good ideas in this thread.

My wife is a teacher. After a couple of years teaching in the gifted and talented program, she recommended a few games that are fun for kids and adults, and would be suitable on the boat.

Hue Knew?

Stare

Square Up!

Rumis

Gambit

You can check them out at Amazon and Mindware.com
