A wager is a friendly bet between players on the outcome of a puzzle or parlor game. Players may challenge each other or Non-Player Pirates (also called NPPs or bots) to a puzzle, with Pieces of Eight and items divided up equally among the winners.
Some NPPs will accept wagers up to 26 PoE.
There is no way to wager with doubloons. Items can only be wagered in direct one-on-one challenges made through the radial menu. If an item is untradeable (i.e., the savvy hat), it may not be wagered.
Oceanmasters are able to ban accounts from any form of wagering. However, this is complete, and permanent. It will not be reversed if you later change your mind, and it will block all wagers - challenges with just a tan bandana at stake, tournaments with an entry fee, and so on.
If you're certain that this is the step you wish to take, and that you cannot manage to control this with willpower, please petition asking for this to be activated for your account.
