If you like Tetris, games from Popcap.com like Bejeweled, and other action-puzzle games, you will love Puzzle Pirates -- not only can you play an ever-growing array of puzzle games, but you can do it with thousands of other people from around the world in a pirate-themed online environment. Your game performance will help power a pirate ship as you pillage your way across the ocean, or help create items in a player-run economy. A Puyo-Puyo-like swordfighting puzzle lets you battle computer-controlled brigands and other players to win booty and fame. Or, if you're feeling sociable, you can play card games with other players in the inns, or just hang out and chat.

Instead of the often-transient teams and somewhat anonymous guilds that other MMORPGs usually offer, players in Puzzle Pirates tend to join tight-knit, long-term organizations: crews and flags. You can join a crew of like-minded mates, and help sail ships, run trading voyages, and manage shops. Your crew can join flags, which can compete in the game of empire, blockading and governing islands. In addition to your personal goals, you'll find yourself puzzling and politicking for the benefit of your crew and flag. There's some lightweight roleplaying, as well -- get ready to say "Yarrr!" a lot.

Though the culture of each "ocean" varies, most are populated by intelligent, polite, mature players, although there are also some that are dominanted by raucous youngsters -- try out a few to see where you feel like you fit in. The developers are highly responsive and the quality of customer service is very good, and the OceanMasters do not tolerate griefers.

Puzzle Pirates is primarily an online, multi-player game, but this new retail release adds some offline puzzling fun, as well as giving you a free month's subscription to the online game. Puzzle Pirates is like the lovechild of Popcap and Everquest, with all the best characteristics of both. A persistant world, with player driven plotlines and economy, all powered by puzzles that are both simple and mind-bending at the same time.

If you like Bejewelled or Alchemy, you'll love Puzzle Pirates. If you like Everquest or Worlds of Warcraft, you'll love Puzzle Pirates. If you like pirates, you'll love Puzzle Pirates. And if you don't love pirates, well, what do you love?

This game is great. The box set has an offline version, subscription credit, and in-game items. The online game is a subscription based Pirate environment, with team puzzling. There are also single player puzzles and computer opponents.

Overall I find it hugely entertaining. I love my "crew" and being able to compete against other players, and the "Aaarrghs!" and "Huzzahs!" help keep it light. But it allows for some pretty serious puzzling, and the game keeps getting more complex.

Or you can just stand around and chat with other gamers, and there are several card games and other parlor games.

It is a tough game, so it is good to remember that it is rated for teens and above. Being able to interract well with other players is vital, young kids probably won't enjoy that responsibility.

It's great for us big kids though! I love to dress up my little pirate and go out for a swordfight or a pillage.

It is a very well game. Between the different types of puzzles, and the hundreds, if not thousands of people playing online the same time as you are. There are three or more types of a pirate you can choose to be. A captain, crew member, shoppe owner, a randome pilliger, and/and a parlor game player.

The games that you can play are swordfighting, bilge pumping, sailing, sea battle,navigating, gunning, poker, spaids, drinking, hearts, and distillling. Each one of these games you can gain experience from, and rise in a crew, or flag, or just even make money.

My favorite part of the game is being able to customise your priate. With different cloths styles to different types of swords and colors, or if you want, you can posess a deed to your ship, or house.

If a new island is discovored, and you are in a flag, you can help with a blockade, and help govern that island with your flag and crew mates.

But, if you want to start yer own crew, you better know what you are doing(I would sugguest to start out by being part of a crew), because it is hard work. You have to first have a deed to a ship, get pirates to join yer crew, and then you have to maintain it, by promoting people to the possition you think is right for their experience. You have to know when and how to take control of the situation, and if need be, make them walk the plank if they aren't following orders.

There is some language, but there are filter systems that you can control to either block out the bad words, or turn it into a pirate's term(wich i find is very humorous).

You can make new friends who have the same interests that you do, or you can just be a loner who doesn't talk, but makes a bunch of money, either way, it is up to you to decide yer faite.

Hope to see you on if ye read this. Fairwell, and may ye see our flag held high, when we pass ye in the ocean.

The great thing about this game is that it can be as simple or as complicated as you want, you choose! :)

When I started playing YPP! about a year ago (March 2004), I found it pretty boring but stayed and gave it a chance because I love puzzles. Little did I know that there was much more than puzzles hidden inside.

Aside from making friends who share your interests and most likely joining a crew, there's a little economy going. There are tailors, distilleries, iron mongers, shipyards, apothecaries and weaveries all ran by players. There are also Inns, where you can participate in sword tournaments, drinking tournaments, play some parlor games such as hearts or spades or challenge a "bot" to a puzzle for practice. You can also challenge other players for one on one sword fighting and drinking; you can also grab some mateys to do team brawls. All of these types of puzzles can be wagered or non-wagered.

In the water, you ship goods back and forth from islands and archipelagos, go out in search of treasure (pillaging) or any other type of business you may need to do. These goods are supplies for the shops that "make the world go 'round". Beware! Ye may get attacked by brigands (bot ships) and you may have to fight for your treasure aboard. Other players can also attack you. Do your job tho or the captain may make you walk the plank!

There are flags that hold various crews under them that own each island. Other flags try to take over these islands sometimes which leads you in to some politics. :p

Ramble. Ramble. There's more but I think I've beaten it enough.

There's a reason why these guys won the 2004 webby award for Best Game, so naturally if you're an MMORPG buff or similar type, you have to try it.

See ye there! Arg!
