Update:
We heard from a Pirate fan in Australia who let us know that while they’re sleeping, we’re holding our contest. So they never really get a chance to enter. So tonight after we pull today’s winner, we’re going to post tomorrow’s drawing contest and let it run till 6pm. And we’ll do the same thing for the remainder of the drawings through Sunday!

So the rest of our Contest Days will begin at 6:30 pm eastern tonight – and will close at 6pm tomorrow evening!

Our Day 4 Tribal Pack Winner Is…

Somewhere in the Spiral

Our 4th Day Tribal Crew Pack Contest Winner Is…..

When you first enter the game and create your pirate character, What is the 1st thing Boochbeard says?
– Answer: “Get down, she’s gonna blow!”

We accepted either Get Down or what we were really looking for: Get Down, She’s gonna Blow! for the correct answer.

We were going to pick the 14th correct answer, but we didn’t have 14 correct answers. We received 32 responses. Many of you said:

“Hard to say. You there! You’re standing on my blind side. Are ye a boy, or a girl?”

But that’s after Mr. Gandry finds you in the cell and you start to build your pirate.

Since we didn’t receive 14 correct answers, we decided the only real fair thing to do is pick the last correct answer, which was the closest to #14.

We want to make an honorable mention to Captain James Derevaux; who gave us the most complete answer:
“Get down, she’s gonna blow. *BOOM* *cough cough* it’s one of these prisoners *cough* check the ones down there monkey.”  Thanks Captain James, we hope you’ll enter again this week. You have 4 more chances for a Tribal pack; and then there’s the special drawings on Saturday and Sunday!

But the last correct answer (#11) came from our winner:

Mark
aka
Captain Allen Spinaker

Congratulations! Captain!
