Pirates have been a Frequent Theme

PlayGames2Learn.com - Pirate Ship Paper Craft - Crayola Activity Book
Personally, it goes further back than that… 🙂

Since we started PlayGames2Learn.com almost 3 years ago, a significant percentage of our releases have had a pirate theme:

  • Pirates vs. Skeletons – one of our first published games, this dice-roller pits an attacking force of skeletons against a defending crew of pirates. Use different combinations of dice and commander options to vary the math and strategy. Available as a free print-and-play on our website.
  • Pirate Pursuit: The Spanish Treasure Fleet – our full-sized board game where a pirate is sneaking about with Scotland Yard style hidden movement, trying to capture a Spanish treasure fleet. Cooperate with the other pirate hunters to corner the pirate (or at least keep them from the treasure) while learning real pirate lore. Details and pictures via The Game Crafter.
  • Pirate Ship Paper Craft – this print, cut, and glue/tape paper craft was inspired by the pattern in my old Crayola activity book (pictured above) and designed to work as a 3D game board for Pirates vs. Skeletons. Use it in your own game or to act out a story…make a whole fleet with sails and everything! Available as a free printable on our website.
  • The Day the Pirates Went Mad – our ‘cozy’ historical novel for middle-grade readers follows the adventures of young Emma Sharpe as she learns to sail the seas, bonds with her shipmates, and then must save them all from a cursed pirate treasure! Available in ebook and paperback formats on Amazon.

    + Now accompanied with its own just released Teacher’s Guide for the classroom, homeschoolers and distance learners!
  • Pirate Pursuit: The King’s Pardon – our cards-only push-yer-luck companion game to Pirate Pursuit: The Spanish Treasure Fleet. In this game, collect as much pirate lore for your famous pirates as you can before you take the King’s Pardon or your doom catches up with ye!

    The full standard edition will be released by the end of September, and an expansion pak add-on for those who already (or wish to) own Pirate Pursuit – The Spanish Treasure Fleet will be available by the end of 2021.

The reason why is obvious, isn’t it? Pirates help #MakeLearningFun! 🙂

And we still have more pirate-y things to come. So stay tuned for updates and have a happy International Talk Like A Pirate Day!
