Do you know we are gathered here today? This party is in fact a smokescreen aimed to ensure that your parents do not worry themselves sick… We indeed need your help to discover the treasure of our ancestor Niels Wooden-Leg.
 
Niels Wooden-Leg was the most cunning and the greediest pirate of the Caribbean. Legend spoke that he even succeeded in stealing the treasures of Blackbeard and Rackham the Red. But no one could ever find where he has hidden his mountains of gold coins, jewels and precious stones…
 
A map and various clues, gathered while we were in search of the treasure, are passed along to the members of our family from one generation to the next. But up to now, nobody ever succeeded in discovering the treasure. We have lost sleep over it. And finally, we came up with a very simple idea: what if only real pirates and mermaids could take up the challenges together and solve Niels Wooden-Leg’s riddles?
 
Are you ready to risk your life to undertake the challenges? Are you prepared to rack your brains to challenge the laws of the games?
If you succeed, Niels Wooden-Leg’s treasure will be yours… This should motivate you!

The children will follow a trail and will alternate riddles and challenges to find the treasure of Niels Wooden-Leg. In a world populated by pirates and mermaids, your little guests will have to unify their forces and show that they possess all the required skills to be real sea bandits: patience, precision, observation, concentration, reflection, solidarity, strength…
