Pirates have always been elusive figures. They came out of the blue. They attacked, they looted, and they vanished. They left no memorials or personal belongings behind. A few journals provide glimpses of pirate life, but the woodcuts and engravings which illustrate the early histories of piracy are as fictitious as the many stories of buried treasure. And yet the lack of physical evidence has not lessened their mysterious attraction. Reason tells us that pirates were no more than common criminals, but we still see them as figures of romance. We associate them with daring deeds on the Spanish Main, with rakish black schooners and tropical islands and sea chests overflowing with gold and silver coins.

I would like to ask, how many of you have bought Sid Meier's Pirates game?

At least it has made me return to my twenties, if you consider I'll be 68 next month... ;-)

Pirates existed even before that golden age of Piracy, and if you force me to say it, they do still exist today. Maybe in other fields. Ho-Ho-Ho!

No need to overwhelm me guys. Thanks to both SchmoWu and Contact; just take into consideration that I never had and infancy nor a youth, I was one of the kids of the Spanish civil war and never had the opportunity to play anything except marbles and ping-pong. Then I grew up [as everybody ;-)] and got to work, got married and finally jubilated. And now at age almost 68 I am beggining to learn about what I missed. Please, no tears, no cries!!

Now I am having fun, and helping where I can.

Have not been able to beat the machine when playing as pirate. The three first ranks are ok, can even dance nicely with the chicks, have beaten all the bad guys and found the four ancient cities. Have married and got rid of all 9 main pirates. Finnally ended up being a Governor with plenty of money and happy to have saved all my family. But here again, only when playing at the first two levels of the game.

Real nice game!!

Avast, I've got trouble at them higher levels too! Like ye, at third level it really gets dif'cult fer me.
That aside, just playing the game fer it's fun atmosphere is great - I like them drinking songs when the crew's happy!
But some day I'll get around to finishing it on them higher levels and feel like a real pirate! :-D
