International Talk Like A Pirate Day

Ahoy yer scurvy dogs! Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Fun Facts

  • Started in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers, September 19th was chosen for Mark Summers' wife's birthday.
  • When I was doing SCA, I ended up leading a pirate ship. But I slyly referred to us as "Entrepreneurs of the High Seas" because piracy is illegal. ;-)
  • As a pre-teen, I would pester my Da about pirates. The poor man put up with questions such as, "But Da, how did you not see any pirates when you were in the Navy?" And of course, "But you passed through the Bermuda Triangle! How could you not see any ghost pirates?!?"

So, for the gamer or parent of a gamer or spouse of a gamer, here are some fun pirate type video games to play today.
