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 news and wondered what they stand for or what these gaming folks are talking about.
On October 15, 2012 Pirate101 rolled out to the world! Can you believe 6 years have gone by already? It seems like it was just last year that our first Captains hit the skyways! Wow time has gone by so fast!

Scrolling Through Powers and Doubloons During Battles
Occasionally you may get into a battle and need a certain specific power on the battleboard. But it’s not displayed in your list of powers at the bottom of the screen. Oh no, now what?
The same thing can happen with your doubloons. Whither you are in a battle alone or in a Team-up, you can have a list of doubloons, and none of them will help you in the current battle round. Argh, where is that minion doubloon when you need it most!? Continue reading →
Occasionally you may get into a battle that just seems a little too tough to overcome or win. Never fear, you can buy some help through the Crown Shop in the midst of that battle.
Henchmen are short time workers, for a specific battle. When you buy a henchman you have the option of purchasing one of these workers who is on any level available to your Captain.
Henchmen are available in every class of Pirate. You’ll find Musketeer and Witchdoctor henchmen. You’ll find henchmen starting at level 5, up to the highest level available (currently Level 70). These henchmen come with the same powers as any Pirate class Captain of that level. So the powers of your Witchdoctor Level 40 Captain, will be the powers you see assigned to the Witchdoctor Level 40 henchmen. Continue reading →
