Ahoy me mateys! The time has come for ye to don ye eye patch, find ye peg leg and get that blasted stuffed cockatoo from out of the attic. Rare and Microsoft’s brand new sea faring massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) is here, and we have some Kraken-licious prizes to celebrate.

During our sea faring adventures in the Sea of Thieves alpha and beta periods, we came across a handsome key that led us on a path to Davey Jones’ Locker. It was there that we found some booty that even the smelliest of skellies could not hide from our plundering.

After we made sure that dead men tell no tales, we took it upon ourselves to redistribute our wealth by abiding to the Pirate law of ‘no prey, no pay’. Hence why today we present the opportunity for ye to avoid dancing the hempen jig by searching for clues and winning ye own share of our bountiful booty.

Up for grabs in the Win With Vamers Be More Pirate competition:

  • One (1) main prize (valued at R1850) consisting of:
    • one (1) Sea of Thieves download game token for Xbox One/PC,
    • one (1) pirate chest,
    • one (1) pirate flag,
    • one (1) pirate journal,
    • one (1) 6″ (16 cm) pirate scope,
    • one (1) pirate compass,
    • one (1) pirate treasure map,
    • and a minimum of ten (10) metal pirate doubloons.
  • Two (2) runner-up prizes (valued at R450) consisting of:
    • one (1) pirate treasure map,
    • one (1) pirate compass,
    • and a minimum of ten (10) metal pirate doubloons.  

Now that ye know what ye can win, make sure to scroll down to find ye sea legs so that ye can heave and ho to victory!
