This took a lot of research:

Pin the tail on the torpedo

Hydrophone karaoke night

Up and down periscope rides

Keelhaul Hans

Tap dance contests on deck in rough weather

Which tube is the captain in?

Whole crew mooning of Allied aircraft

Who makes the best looking fraulein?

Water skiing (not popular in North Atlantic).

Let's throw all of the beans overboard.


Well, you knew that they weren't practicing with the deck gun.

Naval vessels don't carry howitzers.

Naval vessels carry naval guns.

A howitzer has its barrel pointed further up into the sky:

It was a joke. For the love of Heaven, look at the original post and tell me they actually played those games. Thanks for the history lesson.

Do you think they bobbed for apples? How about the egg toss? Not to mention tittly winks.

i wish we had a mini-chess game in the sim, so we can pass the time, would've made the journey more enjoyable.
perhaps something to try for modders? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I expect most of the crew retired to their bunks after they'd finished on watch , to introduce themselves to "Handy, Mr's Palm and her five lovely daughters , little , ring middle " , etc

20mm juggling

Tag around the tower

Who dares to dip XOs sweater in the water prior to watch?

Oily cloth tossing.

Knottying of various hairs on the body with other various haris on another's body.

Who can make the most disgusting drink, and drink it. Winner drink is named 'U-boot Special' for duration of patrol.

Torpedo-surfing (not often practiced more than once).

Find the harbour (played mostly by officers).

And the game played by the captains with all the other captains: Who can be sunk the least (generally a player would not be able to play on after getting a point).

the watch crew probaly played "I spy" but when the only thing around you is water it kinda defeats the purpose.
