Top Ten Things to Do in Sid Meier's Pirates

Sid Meier's Pirates! is a fun game with a lot of pirate-y stuff to do. It's a guilty pleasure to play as well. The game has several mini games and is fun throughout.

The Top Ten

1 Track down the criminals who imprisoned your family

The main quest of the game has you chasing Marquis Montalban who imprisoned your family. It's a very hard quest - NuMetalManiak

2 Finding buried pirate treasure

Other named pirates exist in this game, and they get mad when you dig up their treasure. But they are all beatable in a swordfight. - NuMetalManiak

3 Engage in a swordfight

The most common thing the in-game pirates do! They draw swords and exchange blows. Very fast-paced. It is actually really tough on later difficulty settings - NuMetalManiak

4 Engage in naval combat

Fire the cannons to weaken the enemy and either sink or capture the vessel. - NuMetalManiak

5 Dance romantically with a governor's daughter

This is one of the harder things to do, impressing the lasses who like the dashing pirates. Eventually it is possible to marry one of the daughters. - NuMetalManiak

6 Ransack a port

The game offers a tactical land-based combat. A really successful land battle can change the nationality of a port. - NuMetalManiak

7 Gain crew members

Of course, they need to be well fed. Crew gets unhappy as the game progresses. - NuMetalManiak

8 Dividing the plunder

This is actually important, because it resets your status in case the game decides to make crew morale mutinous. - NuMetalManiak

9 Sneaking into a hostile town

Not very much seen, there's not much to it really. Land combat is more fun. - NuMetalManiak

10 Finding ancient cities full of gold.

Works like lost relative or treasure maps, but the reward is a ton of gold! - NuMetalManiak
