Update To Skull Island

Game Guide Update

I’ve been leveling up my new Musketeer Captain Victoria Hobbes. In doing so I’ve been looking for updates to the game, or parts of the game that I’ve missed when creating the original game guides for the Portal here.

I discovered a new series of quests within Skull Island that begin in Gullet. When you visit the FrogFather, check around the Gullet docks for additional quests. You may find Strong John Silver on the north side of the docks. He’ll be near a small house. He’ll have a seemingly meaningless quest for you dealing with gun powder. But when you return to him, quest complete, he’ll have some valuable information about the Rat Pack which will lead you back to the FrogFather. That quest will lead you to Skull Island and a visit to the Tavern which will send you to the cave behind the water fall.

It’s worth going back and checking in on Gullet and discovering if you have some new quests to work through.

AARP Highlights Wizard101!

winterbreeze-lvl65Beneficial Games For The 50+ Crowd

AARP highlights Wizard101 in a new article concerning the Benefits of Multiplayer Games for adults. What we players know as MMOs.

Being one of those in the 50+ set I can relate to the article of course.

Two associate professors in the Department of Communication at Trinity University in San Antonio, Aaron Delwiche and  Jennifer Jacobs Henderson, who is also the department chair, recently completed a study where they obtained information from over 32,000 users of the free online multiplayer game Wizard101.  The users ranged in age from 5 to 95 years old.  As far as studies go, that makes it one of the largest gaming studies ever.

The article also mentions Pirate101 as having an appeal across generation, there are also games available for younger and older audiences.

These MMO and MMORPG games provide specialization and activity for all players. But it’s most beneficial for those living alone looking for ways to socialize with others. It provides caregivers, both parents and grand-parents with a tool that can unite adults and kids with a common interest.

We love both these games. My son and I have been playing Wizard101 together for years. And with the release of Pirate101, we play as a family with Dad as well. It’s great to see AARP recommending our favorite game too.
