The good people of the web-based game Star Pirates (www.starpirates.net) have asked me for further promoting, and I was happy to say yes and continue the relationship. They’re nice folk, the game is fun, and it’s a web-based Sci-Fi game — which means it’s a mighty-good tie-in with what you’re reading here.
Playing’s free, and I found it easy to get into, and totally addictive. In the first 4 skill levels you have non-attack-you time to examine all the options, to go to the asteroid belt, pick through space debris, or bet (and lose) money. With exploration, I found the interface simple and easy to use.
I was approached by other players including an official welcoming pirate, who gave me advice, rum, and parts for my ship. The “shoutbox” is an excellent venue to discuss duct tape or waffles, and was always lively. I felt very welcomed.
So put on your helmet, get into a Starship Sloop Mk. 1, and spend a blasterdly evening with Nogg’s Fleet. Click through THIS LINK and you’ll be autoinvited to the fleet.
