A Tale o' Misadventure!

Ye needs secrecy, skill, and a fair bit o' good luck to be a successful smuggler. The scurvy dogs of the crew, Miss Fortune, found themselves cursed with bad luck at every turn of the tide. Step aboard this bizarre vessel and hear the tall tale about their accursed journey.

Lazy Walter booched navigation (again) and the ship sailed off the charted course! They spent weeks adrift at sea without sighting a single brigand and then calamity struck! They were shipwrecked in a mysterious ship graveyard. After too much sloppy work and many, many pig's breakfasts, they cobbled together something seaworthy and were able to make it back to port.

Now that they're home, they've given up the smugglin' trade. They're offering 3-hour tours around yer favorite archipelago while they regale ye with the tale of their fateful cruise. Don't worry about a bit o' bad luck. Stop by yer local shipyard and add a Calamity Class Cutter to yer collection today! The Calamity Class Cutter will be available through June 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.

Game from my childhood, still fun today
Obviously very different to a lot of MMOs
Familar games, can get a bit repetative; but there are so many games its still worth it.


Its easy to start and really addictive... like heroin

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!

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.
