Happy Halloween – 2018

Celebrating The End of Summer

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.
~ William Shakespeare’s Macbeth

  

Hoping you have a fantastic evening of
Trick-or-Treating,
with lots of fun, frights and genuine laughter!

Many Blessings –

The Pillow Fight Weekend Has Begun!

Get to Farming

Now through October 28th you have a chance at winning some awesome prizes!

On the surface Skull Island may be notorious for its armies of troggies, shivers of sharks, and Aztecan ruins full of peril, but our plundering pirates really know what’s in abundance in the treasure chests of Skull Island . . . pillows! In fact the pillow stockpile has grown so huge, there’s only one thing to do . . . PILLOW FIGHT!!

This pillow “farming event” will run through each weekend of Pirate 101’s birthday month:

  • Pillow Fight #1: Oct. 12-14 with Blue and White, Cyan and Pink pillows (Winners: Able Halyard and Bryan Jones)
  • Pillow Fight #2: Oct. 19-21 with Leather and Tan, Pink and Magenta pillows (Winners: Smart Wolf Jones and Stormy Heather Ironside)
  • Pillow Fight – The Finale!: Oct. 26-28 with all four new pillows: Blue and White, Cyan and Pink, Leather and Tan, Pink and Magenta pillows

At the end of each weekend we will tally the count of pillows and those who got the most of a particular set will be awarded with a bunch of Crowns! See below for details on the prize pool.

Let the pillow fight begin!

MMO Terminology

What Does That Mean

You might be surprised to know that online gaming isn’t just for kids or young adults. The large variety of games can attract people of all ages to spend their weekends, or evenings letting go of stress and frustrations by blowing up buildings, killing monsters or just letting out some steam.

Pirate101 is one of these games. Back in 2013 AARP Highlighted both Wizard101 and Pirate101 as beneficial games for older adults.

If you’re a gamer you already know all of these gaming terms. But if your new to online gaming, or you’re an older adult just getting into gaming you may have seen these acronyms in the news, or heard your kids or grandkids talking, or perhaps you read them on a game blog like this one and wondered what they stand for or what these gaming folks are talking about.
