    Pirate History (Mini Game)

    Ahoy Pirates!

    It be time to delve into the treacherous waters of pirate history and uncover the secrets of the Jolly Roger.

    Sharpen yer wits and get ready for a swashbucklin' adventure!

    Pirate Puzzler:

    Uncover the Legends Piracy is a very old craft that, according to tradition, originated during the first sea voyages.

    Over the centuries, many pirates have plied the troubled waters, raiding and pillaging ships carrying rich booty.

    To increase the fear caused by the sight of their approaching ships, in the 17th century they began to hang a black flag on the highest mast.

    Later, they added various motifs such as a skull and swords, a skeleton piercing the heart, a figure of death with an hourglass or a skull with crossed bones.

    These flags came to be known as the Jolly Roger.

    Over time, the skull and crossbones flag became established as a symbol of pirate ships.

    Now let's test your knowledge of famous and less famous pirates of history.

    Time: 25.11 – 27.11

    How to play?

    Decrypt the Pirate Names:

    • Unjumble the letters to reveal the names of notorious pirates from history.
    Mind the Order:
    • The letters from the first name are not mixed with the letters of the Family name, and vice versa.
    Clues for Guidance:
    • Each encrypted name comes with a clue about the pirate's life or death. Use these hints wisely!
    Crack the Code:
    • Once you've unraveled all seven names, write down the first letter of the first name and the first letter of the Family name for each pirate.
    Organize Your Booty:
    • Arrange the letters in the order:
      • 1) First Name, Surname;
      • 2) First Name, Surname; and so on...
      • Write the code without any spaces between the letters.

    I think the fifth pirate's last name is off one letter (and actually, the first pirate's first name is off in the spelling, "technically speaking"), but I did finally get it. Thanks!
