We be payin' tribute to the Year o' the Snake* with this month's Limited Edition Ship: the Serpent Class Sloop! A sleek snake figurehead hangs from her prow, and she be dressed out in fine serpentine style with carvings an' banners and the like, all with a right fancy flourish that harkens to the far eastern seas. Her cold, beady deadlights set upon prey, she's like to slither through the waters just ready to strike!
Let's 'ave ourselfs a look at the craft, shall we? Below we see Ms. Luck upon the foredeck o' this scaly beauty. As ye can see, 'tis a colourful ship this, snaky green decks with red and gold trimmings befitting the Chinese New year. And not a few fine serpentine touches all abouts.
Arr, an what a fine poop-deck! Thar be a snake-'eaded tiller beneath what looks to be a stolen pagoda roof, crowned with a golden serrrpent! And all 'round there be fireworks and boxes o' combustables for yer New Year festivities! Or, should an icy squall start a blowin', ye could always light'em and hold'em tight for emergency warmth - HARR HARRR!
A tasty banquet awaits ye in the Serpent Sloop's cabin, along with more slinky, snaky touches. Here ye might relax after a bountiful voyage, divide booty at yer leisure, or put down yer cutlass and fill yer gob with fine fare that'll make ye forget about ship's biscuit for a while. Shall we - eh? What's that Ms. Luck? Har, indeed! She reminds ye not to light a match me bucko, or those fancy firecrackers just might tickle yer noggin off!
Avast Ms. Luck! Let's stop a moment 'ere in the belly o' the serpent. Well sink me fer a cross-eyed squiffy! Just strike yer deadlights on all that slithery booty me hearties! Twisty wall snakes an' fancy banners 'an even wee snake satuettes - an' more rockets an' crackers an' things what go BOOM! Puts me in a mind to shed me ol' skin and bring in the year o' the snake a better, jollier, and craftier pirate that ev'r afore!
Look lively mates, ye can only get yer hooks on a Serpent Class Sloop until the end of February, so get yer orders in before they slither away to fortunes unknown!
*An' by Neptune's knickers, we sure don't be payin' no tribute to any accurs'd serpent cults 'r the scallywag Stygian necromancers what captains 'em. Those scurvy dark-arts blaggarts wouldn't know a jib from a mainsail!
From now until Monday, January 21st at 3 PM PST, you'll earn a free Ice Box for every $9.95 you spend on doubloons or every month of subscription time you purchase! Trapped at the center of these curiously cold cubicles are rare prizes and tantalizing treasures featuring the seasonal color of Ice Blue!

When an occupation demands copious consumption of rum, grog, and swill, it is quite understandable that pirate tales are regularly dismissed as foolery and poppycock. Tavern talk of voodoo curses, webbed mermen, and spectral ships just seems too fantastical to be true. But any meaningful time spent with a crew can easily capsize those expectations.
January introduces a new ship for pirates familiar with all manner of fantastic and terrible powers slumbering beneath the sea! The Hunter class sloop has been commissioned foremost for fortune and vengeance. Quests for sea-bound revenge should no longer be monopolized by maimed whaling captains!
A fearsome prow features the visage of a mythical leviathan. This will either convince very real leviathans that you're just here to hang out, or those same leviathans will immediately see through the ruse and attempt to tear your ship apart like tissue paper. Either way, it certainly looks terrifying.
You may have also noticed a harpoon launcher located behind the prow. Unfortunately, it does not fire harpoons, but it will scare the wits off a Sphinx so long as you don't tell anyone about that shortcoming!
Successfully returning from an adventurous excursion into the unknown means that proper preparation was handled beforehand. To that end we present: chum. Buckets of chum. Oh, and cannon balls, black powder, nets, lucky bells, and more harpoon launchers of questionable build quality. But really, the star of this image is the bucket of fishy chum.
Not impressed by chum? How about a barrel of harpoons? How about numerous barrels of harpoons? Because those are also included!
Venture below deck to find this fabulous trophy room! Concoct your own stories behind these glorious items! Come up with a reason why that sea monster head is kept in a locked cell! I like to believe that the sea monster head responsibly asked for its confinement one rum-fueled night when he lost track of his designated navigator.
Whether its for fortune or revenge, the Hunter class sloop aims to provide you with an entertaining platform for striking out at sea monsters, engaging in expeditions, or telling your tallest of tales! The Hunter class sloop will only be available during the month of January, so hurry to your local shipyard and get one while supplies last!
In the ice-choked seas of the far north, the Toymakers toil through spring, summer and autumn. Compelled, perhaps, by forgotten oaths or an ancient and primal desire to spread merriment and joy, they painstakingly craft shipments of shiny new playthings. As the days grow short, they load their baubles and gewgaws by the cartload into a fleet of waiting merchant vessels, southbound for ports across the ocean. And the pirate folk feel the nip in the air and know these shipments soon will arrive.
But a rumour has spread among the brigands, those scurvy cut-throats who care nothing for the spirit of the season, that "thar be rum in them tubs". And so they've fallen upon the toy-laden fleet, seizing the Toymakers' goods and smashing them into pieces in their rage that nary a drop of rum could be found within!
From now until January 4th, battles with Brigands and Barbarians have a chance to award special toy part trinkets as prizes! Sets of toy parts may be brought to trading posts and assembled into brand new toy furniture items: adorable yeti dolls, festive drums, and curiously small cannons! Decorate your home, pose with them in portraits, and satisfy yourselves by giving a good wallopin' to bands of miserable marauders!
So reclaim what was yours and teach those roaming scallywags that it's a lot more polite to simply buy rum! Join a voyage to hunt down some toy parts today, they'll only be available in pillages until January 4th!
Piercing gales and tenacious ice barnacles make the life of a pirate particularly challenging this time of the year. Luckily, there's a new Gold Box to warm the hearts of all pirates until the springtime thaw.
December's Gold Box introduces Scarlet Shampoo, the only way to get the new Scarlet hair color! There's nothing like a head of blazing bright red hair to express just how warm that heart of yours is during these long winter nights! It also has the added bonus of making you look particularly fierce to all those scurvy blaggards out there! Trust us, you won't miss having to actually set your hair on fire in order to achieve the same results.
For those of you who absolutely need to have the intensity of a live flame as close to your head as possible, this Gold Box will also include a chance at three toasty new colors of Dragon Familiars: Red, Maroon, and Persimmon.
If fiery hair dye and dragons aren't enough to keep your spirits warmed, remember that December's seasonal color is Wine! Collect Wine Gold Box trinkets and Wine Chromas while they're available. Also be on the lookout for a new White Icy Unicorn and a king's ransom of gilded goods if the combustion motif doesn't fit your style. See this page for a full list of prizes.
The December Gold Box is available now at your local bank, but supplies will run out on the 17th!
You asked for it, we heard you, and then we waited a while, and then we all went out for drinks, and then some of us did our laundry, and then we had the strangest feeling like we were forgetting something, and then we remembered what it was, and now... it's here! By popular demand, the Limited Edition ship for December is the Casino Class War Frigate!
Here's the main "casino floor" room down in the hold, complete with every kind of parlor table you could dream of, as well as more poker and Treasure Drop tables than you can shake a croupier stick at!
And what casino would be complete without a plush VIP suite? This one even has its own tank of tropical fish! Lions and other exotic pets sold separately.
We saved the best for last, however... Deep down in the hold are a working roulette table and a working craps table!
Use 'em to play with for fun with your hearties, or to roll up a random number for whatever reason you might need one. Break ties! Determine who gets first pick of duty station, and who is stuck swabbing the deck! Make important life decisions! It's up to you.
The Casino Class War Frigate is the premier ship for excursions to Atlantis, but don't gamble on it staying around any longer than the month of December, so roll one up for yourself right now!
We here at Puzzle Pirates HQ are folks of simple tastes. We feel that old traditions are among the best ones, and so we like to celebrate the harvest season the way it's been celebrated for hundreds of years: we take a bunch of awesome items, stuff them all into boxes stamped with question marks, and then give them away! Some of you may take issue with our grasp of history. In our defense, our history is probably a lot more interesting and fake than yours*.
From now until 3:00 PM PST on November 19th, 2012, you'll earn a free Wine Mystery Box for every $9.95 you spend on doubloons or every month of subscription time you purchase! That's 3 Mystery Boxes for purchasing a quarterly subscription, 5 Mystery Boxes for purchasing a $49.95 package, or even more!
Every Wine Mystery Box contains a cool prize. What's new this month? Well, the Wine Box contains a variety of previously unavailable furniture from past Limited Edition ships! If you've been coveting fantastic furni like the wine crates from the Smuggler Class Sloop, or the elegant bookcase from the Vampire Class Sloop, this is your chance to snag them for yourself. There's also a wide variety of other Wine-colored prizes available, including unique Wine Box trinkets, Wine Dogs and Wine Octopus Familiars!
Good luck, everyone!
* For one, ours has a lot of robots in it. Also, Blackbeard was a velociraptor. From space.
