Watch out for that tree!

We recently held a contest on the game forums for players to submit designs for limited edition ships. This ship is inspired by the winning entry from Coconaut of Cerulean. Let out yer best Tarzan yell as ye swing through the Jungle Class Sloop.

Be the king of yer own jungle! Enjoy the steamy surroundings as ye play hide and seek with the multitude of monkeys on the ship. Due to the sweltering conditions of the jungle, the cannons look a bit rusty, but they’ll sink the enemy ships just as well as shiny ones!

Wow, that is a big spider! Wouldn’t want to find that crawling on yer shoulder! There is an abundance of wildlife on this ship. Monkeys and parrots in the trees, and a pair of big cats roam the ship. Don’t be bothered by the gators swimming in the pools - these critters don’t venture beyond the water.

After a full day of pillaging, enjoy the comfort of a hammock as ye listen to the soothing sounds of the jungle.

Grab a vine and swing to yer nearest shipyard to order yer Jungle Class Sloop today!

The Power of Dreams!

By the Power of Messier's Crown!

The Department o’ Treasury has two new pets available in the Palace Shoppe! Let your dreams follow you into the waking world with Dream Sheep. These fluffy friends surround you with comfort and restful moments between swabbing the deck, manning the sails, hauling treasure, and fighting barbarians. Don’t cringe away from the powerful and fierce Combat Cat. It will be your trusty companion in any battle against your sworn enemies, or any pesky brigands who happen to be sailing nearby.

These pets are available in the Palace Shoppe until 3pm PDT May 2nd, 2014!

Camouflaged Gold Boxes!

, , , , , chameleon

Gold boxes return with a new color-changing familiar! The toucan has evaded this box, but we’ve had glimpses of a camouflaging chameleon familiar. The primary color will change to match the primary color of the pirate's torso clothing. The secondary color will not change. For April, the secondary colors will be grey, green, light blue and persimmon.

This box also includes spring green trinkets and chroma. Did ye purchased a blue hound from the Palace Shoppe? If so, ye'll be able to use Bottled Bluebeard to temporarily look like yer pet, as all pet owners should. Ye'll celebrate the shiny of this box with golden furniture, clothing and trinkets. This month's crystal ball furniture will be the striking color lime! Ask the crystal ball: Is there a dreamstone sea turtle pet in yer future?

Find Gold boxes at your island bank until April 14th at 3 PM PDT. You can find the full list of prizes, right here.

Model Cutter!

Call it cabin fever or wanderlust, but ye feel the need to get out on the open waters and let the wind fill the sails. This is the perfect time to explore that island archipelago way off in the corner of ye known world, or try again to strike up a conversation with Vargas the Mad on his fog-shrouded islet.

Congratulations to all the talented players whose egg designs were selected to be added to the game this year! Beginning today, egg furniture will be available in the palace shoppe, and as prizes in tournaments and competitions! Now is the perfect time to decorate your home, ships, shop or hall for spring.

BREAKING NEWS NOW - Eggpocalypse 2014!

The Department o' HWFO is gathering reports from around the oceans that eggs have been found broken or cracked! There are unconfirmed reports that strange creatures have been sighted on colonized islands. Frantic Ray yells, 'They've hatched velociraptARRRs!", but Panicked Jane swears the're small and fast.

Frantic pirates were seen running from their homes earlier today, clutching broken egg shells. One shocked pirate was mumbling, ‘I thought it was chocolate inside...’

When we hit the docks looking for information, there were only a handful of pirates to be seen. When asked about the egg hatching theory, Smug Callum declared "When ye originally decorated yer home with giant, unidentified waist-high eggs, ye thought to yerself, 'That looks lovely. What could ever possibly go wrong?' Well, now ye know!" Paranoid Sam's voice whispered, ‘They spy on you for the OMs, you know! The eggs, the pets, even the familiars!’ Only the glint of the sun off his foil hat was visible as he ran into the forest.

Are eggs safe? We'll have all the facts for you tomorrow!

Bluebeard's Dog!

Billions of blue blistering barnacles!

More than just green is springing up around the oceans this month! Hedgehogs in umber, almond, grey, chestnut and brown are now in the palace shoppe. These spiny little pets purr contentedly in the warm weather.

Also appearing in the palace shoppe, a new blue dog! The Department o' the Treasury was sure the color would be temporary after these dogs were found rolling in a spilled barrel of Bottled Bluebeard. Alas, the blue just won’t come off, so they're introducing a new pet to ye pirates: Blue Hound! These small dogs will be available in the palace shoppe through April 3rd!

Pirate Census 2014!

Census 2014!

It's time again for the Pirate Census!

Every so often, we put together a survey to gather information about the interests and preferences of the Puzzle Pirates community. The results of the survey remain anonymous. We use the information to get a better idea of who is spending their time sailing our seas and to help us decide what kinds of future projects will be of interest to the community.

The survey will be available through Monday, March 24th, so please take a few minutes to help us build a better Puzzle Pirates by filling out the survey right now!

Monthly Reward and March Madness!

Model Sloop!!

Own a subscription or make a purchase of $9.99 or more in March to receive a desktop model sloop!

The snow has melted, Jack Frost is in retreat, and pirates everywhere wonder why they still can't feel their noses. It's just the sort of distraction you can use to yer advantage as you earn the March Seal o'Piracy by participating in 4 tournaments!

Sea of Dreams!

The team has been dreaming of this sloop for a long time and now, it is ready! This new sloop has a cabin, and for those extended voyages out to sea, bedrolls for a quick nap on deck.

Just click the bedroll and count some sheep while you drift off to sleep, clutching yer rum jug.

The limited edition Dream Class Sloop will transport yer crew to the land of dreams. Fluffy clouds and numbered sheep will ensure a restful visit to dreamland, so ye can return to the seas refreshed and...wait, do those cannons have arms and legs?

Suddenly this dream is feeling a bit unsettled. What is with that giant flower? Is that sheep following me? Fall through the vortex hatch and enter the surreal hold of the dream ship. Find a giant sleeping turtle and a walking, talking rumjug. While he may not be able to find his hat, only the most skilled pirates will be able to best him in drinking.

Below the hold enter a maze of endless stairways and doors. Don’t let panic set it while ye seek yer way out of this disturbing tangle.

Exhausted from running in the endless stairways, and relieved to have escaped the red room, will ye find a safe haven in the cabin? This nightmare space will not give ye respite from the terror, and ye might wake up in a cold sweat.

Will the sandman bring ye fair dreams or horrifying nightmares? Visit yer local shipyard today, because the Dream Class Sloop will fade away from shoppes on April 3rd.
