Play Like a Pirate on Talk Like a Pirate Day


Arrr, matey. September 19 be Talk Like a Pirate Day, and this year, it may also be known as Play Awesome Piratey Games Day. What’s a holiday for pirates without cheap or free pirates games, after all?

talk like a pirate day

In celebration of everyone putting on weird pirate voices, LucasArts is dropping the price of the Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition on Steam and Direct2Drive to only $5, as well as cutting down the iPhone version’s price to just $4. Those special “holiday” prices last through the 21st. And with a special code from the Telltale Games website, you’ll be able to unlock the demo for Tales of Monkey Island and get the first season at a reduced price. It’s not free, of course, but it’s still full of piratey goodness.

    I’ve got a joke that you guys can use on Talk Like a Pirate Day. I came up with it when I was thinking about being a Dixie Riddle Cup writer…

    Q: How much does a pirate pay for corn?
    A: Arrrr… About a buck-an-ear!

    I will not quit my day job.

    An old pirate hobbled into a bar. Bartender asked what happened to his leg. “Shark bit it off when escaping the Lourds.” He then asked what happened to his hand, which had a hook on it. “Had to cut it off to escape the hanging.” Not grizzled yet, the bartender then inquired about the eyepatch. “First day with the hook.”
