Pirate Kids - Ahoy Parents

If your child is a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean Series then Disney's PiratesOnline Game is a experience they will love.  PirateGirl (PG) (age 12) answered the kids interview. Here is what she had to say.

30daysof: What is the name of the website/game/device you reviewed?

30daysof: How did you learn about it?  Who told you?
PG: My aunt T.

30daysof:  What ages do you think are best suited to play this game/website/device?  What abilities or devices are needed?
PG: I recommend ages 10+ because of cartoon violence such as killing and robbing people in the game (Don't worry there is no extreme violence or blood because after all it is a game about pirates) . All you need is your computer and flash player possibly some other software (don't worry it's easy to download but may take a while depending on the speed of computer)

30daysof:  How many hours a day do you spend with the game/website/device?
PG: I spend a few hours a day but take breaks in between. It's fun to learn what your quest will be after hearing it from the characters from the movie, then rush out to accomplish them. (Such as retrieving a secret key for Elizabeth Swann or repairing the Black Pearl for Jack Sparrow)

30daysof:  Do your parents set rules for you such as: chores first, then games:  or only 1 hour a day; or no rules, I have all the control!
PG: After my homework and chores are done my parents reward my work by allowing me to play as long as I want. They check my homework list daily to make sure I don't skip out on anything and they check my grades for the week, too.

30daysof: What is your favorite part of the game/website/device?  Which part do you play most often?
PG: My favorite part is the fact that it's multiplayer because then you don't kill or destory the bad people alone, you have friends or even crew members to help you. I love gathering up a crew off the beaches of Port Royal or Tortuga and set sail on my ship.
30daysof: Please give a secret tip or hint that you want other friends to know about the game/website?  For instance: how do you get to a certain level, find a gem, kill a bad guy, earn extra money?
PG: When preforming your quests, make sure to get the teleportation quests done first! It makes going to all of the islands alot easier because you can teleport there and wont have to run the risk of getting your ship damaged on the open seas.
30daysof: Why do you like this game/website/device better than the others?
PG: Pirates of the Carribean has been my favorite movie for a while, so getting to acually become a pirate and do quests for other pirates is a blast!
30daysof: Write one sentence about this game/website/device that would make others buy it!  
PG: This pirate world is FULL of excitement, pirate battles, quests and lots and lots of ADVENTURE.

30daysof:  How could they improve this game/website/device and make it even better!
PG: Maybe there could be bad guys walking on the streets instead of just in the forts and the stores.

To set up your account and and see a preview of the Pirates Game, Use this Game Pass!


  1. How much does the game cost? Is there a free trial?

  2. There are two acess levels. Basic Member Access and Advanced Member Access (well that's what I think that one is called). Basic Member Access is COMPLETLY FREE and you play for as long as you want (I'm a Basic Member Access). Advanced Member Access is where you pay $5 a month so that your character can buy clothing, jewlery, and more ship types.

    One weekend in April, Pirates Of the Carribean Online let all Basic Member Access Pirates become Advanvced Member Access for that weekend only.

    They also had a contest a few weeks ago where Basic Member Access Pirates could enter their Pirate name and email and P.O.T.C.O. would randomly choose some players to become Advanced Member Access for 30 days. I was lucky enough to win!

    If you want to be my friend on Pirates
    my pirate's name is Margaret Blastbones.


Thanks for sharing!
