Hopping Herbage!

Did someone forget to give the gardeners their ration of rum? The new Verdant Class Baghlah looks a bit overgrown. There's something unsettling and wild about this new ship, so ye pirates will want to keep a weather eye out for indications of curses and other mischief while we take a tour.



The main deck is covered in wild flowered vines and thick overgrowth, and even the ship's wheel has been replaced by a giant sun flower. The reflecting pond in the main hold is barely visible with all the green overgrowth. Pay close attention as ye wander this ship - ye never know what's hidden among all those plants!


The rabbits say ye may want to give the order to grab a hammer and man the bilge pumps. The aft hold is takin' on water! Did ye notice, the number of rabbits on this ship has multiplied compared to the Verdant Class Sloop. Where be th' swabbies? Perhaps they've gone to the cabin to alert the captain of the excess water in the hold.


Avast, me hearties! There be an ancient curse upon this vessel causing all the crew to be transformed into rabbits! The crew don't seem too upset by this transformation, and even seem content in their current state. They'll gladly give ye a tour through their rabbit warrens and let ye take the wheel for a spin. Who knows what ye'll find down the rabbit hole....



Set a course for a hopping good time and visit yer local shipyard today! The Verdant Class Baghlah will be available through April 30, 2015.

This game sure is unique. A MMO game where just about every task you do is a puzzle game. Of course being a game about pirates, there are plenty PvP puzzles as well. Don't let the cartoon-like graphics fool you, it really isn't a game just for kids. But speaking of the graphics, there are quite dated... But that's understandable with the game being so old. All things considered I think the game is worth a shot. Especially if you enjoy puzzle games. Afterall, it's free. There are micropayments but noone is forcing you to spend real money on this game.

The world is run by the players and filled with addictive and fun puzzles, despite how god awful I am at all of them except bilging. Good, free, and on dubloon oceans you can easily make money without having to pay a drop of your real shekels.

I have 500+ hours of Puzzle Pirates played outside of Steam, and every single one has been well spent. It's an engaging puzzle game with a pirate theme, but it is also so much more than that. The game world and economy is largely driven by the players, and there is a huge metagame with crews, alliances, royalty and other social structures if you get tired of just puzzling. Eventually you can buy your own ship to go pillage with, form your crew with other captains under your command or even gain control over an entire island with an alliance. It's free, so try it out!

Oh, this is such a good game. I played it for hours and hours with a few friends about five years ago. I decided to hop on this week for the first time in a long time. It's still a wonderful game with so many good puzzles and fun to be had in multiple ways. But there's next to nobody playing. It's really upsetting to be honest. Understandable - it's an eleven year old game now. But there are so many fewer ships running compared to the old days.

Still give it a go, there are people playing it - but the heyday has passed.

It is pirates and puzzles, two things I enjoy. :) The only thing I would want to change is that personalized items (clothes) seem to wear out and break so that you have to get more money to buy a new set.

If you want to grind dull minigames for cash to play poker you're in the right place.

Pluses:
- atmosphere
- variety of puzzels
- music
- graphics
- wide map
- lots of achievement's, trophys, customizable items
- you can own pets! Multiple!

Minuses:
- a fee in Doubloons for most of items you can buy (see the last paragraph)


At first I installed it for the puzzles. When I first opened the game, I couldn't stop myself from whistling along to the intro music. And then it was only better.
The atmosphere of the game is admirable. The music and sounds are nice and not distracting, graphics are nice to watch. The world is wide and there's plenty to do - you can sail on different kinds of voyages, run a workshop, take care of your house. Things are generally cutomizable, starting at your clothes and ending at your ship, when you earn enough for one. The variety of puzzels is wide enough not to get bored. Your character is constantly developing and you can see the progress as your reputation and trophy board grow. And last but not least, people. There are gamers of all ages and from all corners of the world, so for kid's sake there are some manners enforced, but not to the point where it could destroy the "piratness" of the atmosphere. Players are generally helpful, newbies can ask any question and get a solid answer.

The only minus are doubloons. In game you earn Pieces of Eight which are used to buy things. Problem is that you also have to pay a fee in doubloons, which is usually 3-4 times higher than the prize of an item itself. You can exchange PoE for them, but the course is really high - about 3000:1, when on an average pillying you earn a bit less than that. Or... you can buy them for green cash. So if you decide to start the game, be prepared that either you'll pay, or spend the first week of playing on earning for a decent bed. Despite that, you can still play quite freely if you're just there for the puzzels and sailing.

If you are looking for a game that kills time and meet great people, this is the game you should try.

All puzzles are unique and are challenging/fun, i have MUCH more hours on this game off steam, ive played it twice in the past and it is still a great game with a strong economy.

You can play puzzles that help out during pillages that include Bilging, Carpentry, Sailing, Rigging, Navagation (or Battle Navagation),Gunning (CAUTION: Really hard to get used too), and the new Patching

There are puzzles outside the sea, Crafting skills include: Blacksmithing (My Fav puzzle!), Tailoring, Distillery, Shipyard, Alchemy and more!

Also during pillages you may find treasure islands which contain the Foraging Puzzle, depending on what island it is you can forage for treasure or forage for Gems, you can also find sunken ships which contain the Treasure Haul Puzzle, the more you haul the better the loot.

Also Some awesome PvP Puzzles like: Swordfighting and Rumble (Combat Puzzles); Poker, Spades and hearts (Usual Card Games); and some funny puzzles like Coin Drop or Drinking Game, all of these can be found at all Taverns

The community on this game right now is really friendly, Crews are a great way to interact with other people if you manage to find/make a good crew, though there are some unfriendly players. they are rare to see around.

There is ALOT more to this game then you might think, i say give it a try and see what puzzle you may be great at!
