Blackbeards Fun Pirate Talk
Rinse and repeat. You and up to three friends can compete or cooperate to win trophies in each of these five events. I suppose this sheer lack of gaming diversity could be forgiven if the games were absolutely stellar, but let's put that idea to rest. In the sword fight game you have three basic moves powerful, standard, and quick that are performed by swinging the Wii remote top to bottom, right to left, and forward respectively. Pressing B blocks and shaking the Wii remote and nunchuck simultaneously will tag your partner in.

Tagging is important because attacking drains your stamina bar and will cause your character to collapse. Each team of two has one hundred coins between them, and getting hit drains your coins basically HP. The first team to deplete the coins of their opponents wins. If you've continued to read this far bless you the setup may sound fun. Sadly, thanks to a terrible gesture recognition system, sword fighting in Blackbeard's Booty is a random mess.
Ninety percent of swings register as something completely different than the one intended, resulting in nothing more than a waggle fest. Simply waggle your Wii remote for a minute, tag your teammate for stamina purposes, and waggle for another minute and you've won. The Row for Your Life event works better than sword fighting, but still isn't a very fun experience.
The Pirates of Myrtle Beach
In Row for Your Life, teams of two race two laps around an aquatic course and whoever has the most treasure at the end wins. One teammate steers the boat, while the other shoots. To steer, shake the nunchuck to go left, the Wii remote to go right, and both to speed up. The shooter points with their icon and presses B to fire.

A team can acquire coins by rowing over a treasure chest or shooting an opponent's vessel. Taking fire and falling too far behind will cause a Mama Squid to attack your boat and take more coins. Treasure Hunters plays on a Bomberman like field where one team is offense trying to collect treasure and bring it back to base and the other team plays defense trying to knock their opponents out.
There's nothing complex to it, but at the same time there's nothing fun. In Winds of the Wavy Sea, you play a top down free for all version of capture the flag.
Your remote's cursor is a fan, and placing it behind your sail moves it in your desired direction. Just grab treasure and bring it back to your base for points. You can also steal treasure from a ship by shooting it with your cannon. Finally there's Squidball Sabotage, a squid-laden version of croquet.

Played like golf in Wii Sports, Squidball is about lining up a shot, pressing A, and swinging with a desired amount of force. Sending your squid through the sixteen arches will make it poisonous to other squids. Once poisoned, hit the opposing squid to kill them, and the last squid standing wins.

If you bump into a squid before being poisoned, you can shoot that squid from a cannon and away from their next designated arch. Needless to say, none of the games in Blackbeard's Booty are fun or interesting.
Most scholars think English-speaking Golden Age pirates spoke exactly the same as English-speaking merchant sailors of the time, since large numbers in both groups tended to be from riverfront neighborhoods around London, he said. Many of the phrases that most people think of as pirate speech today can actually be traced back to the s Disney movie Treasure Island, starring Robert Newton as fictional pirate Long John Silver hear Newton as Silver. According to Woodard, Newton based his pirate talk in the film on the dialect of his native West Country in southwestern England, which just happened to be where Long John Silver hailed from in the Treasure Island novel.
In the English West Country during early 20th century, "'arr' was an affirmation, not unlike the Canadian 'eh,' and maritime expressions were a part of everyday speech," he said.
But while many pirates and mariners did hail from the West Country—so you might have heard an "arr" here or there—most did not, so the majority of pirates almost certainly didn't speak like Newton's Silver, Woodard added. Of those of English origin, the largest number were probably from London," where the dialect differed from that of the West Country, Woodard said.
