August 2014 promotion
Booch Box Promotion
During the Booch Box Promotion, players will receive a "mystery gift" with purchases of $9.99 or more made between 10 AM PDT August 29th and 3 PM PDT September 2nd. This promotion is open to players using whichever payment method they prefer, including credit card, Paypal, and UltimatePay. Purchases of either doubloons or subscription during the promotion period are eligible. You can be certain that your purchase qualifies if an image of a Booch Box shows up next to your chosen package on the subscription or doubloon billing page when you go to make your purchase.
Your mystery gift will be redeemable on any one pirate associated with your account. If you made your qualifying purchase while logged in to the game, you may need to log out and back on again for it to appear. Available mystery gift items include...
- Chameleon, Octopus, and Parrot Familiars
- Unicorn and Pony Pets
- Blue Hedgehog Pets
- Plum Hedgehog Pets
- Random-Painted Ships
- Random-Colored Furniture
- Random-Colored Chroma
- Random-Colored Trinkets
- Random-Colored Clothing
Clothing rewards do NOT include rags and are of Good quality or better.
Colors in the Booch Box are randomly generated at the time the box is opened. Colors include magenta and seasonal colors Plum, Chocolate, Wine, Ice Blue, Spring Green or Banana. Seasonal item colors are not available for general sale from Tailors or other in-game shoppes. They are available in this promotion as a familiar color, as the color of clothing prizes, as the primary and/or secondary color of the furniture prizes, as the color of the ship prizes, as the color of the trinket prizes and as a special chroma item.
Chromas are items that are carried in the Miscellaneous section of your Booty panel. They can be used to permanently change the primary or secondary color of any existing piece of clothing, except the Savvy Hat and any clothing item that lacks color options.
- Purchases must be made between 10 AM PDT August 29th and 3 PM PDT September 2nd to be eligible.
- Each purchase of $9.99 or greater is eligible. Smaller purchases cannot be combined to meet this limit.
- Purchasing a doubloon package larger than $9.99 will earn you multiple mystery gifts, at the rate of 1 mystery gift for every $9.99 spent.
- Players with an existing $9.99 or greater subscription will receive one complimentary mystery gift.
- Additional time can be purchased by current subscribers to receive more mystery boxes.
- Coinscriptions and Gifted subscription time do not count as a purchase and do not count towards the Booch Box Promotion.
- It is important to note that some Paypal payment options can take several days to clear. All purchases must clear during the promotion period for them to be eligible for mystery gifts. If the payment clears after the promotion period, you will not receive a mystery box. Bank transfers and eChecks are the most common form of "delayed" payment.
Checks & Money Orders
Checks and Money Order purchases must be issued by US banks and received before the last day of the promotion, September 2nd, 2014, in order to be eligible for a mystery gift.
Collecting Your Mystery Gift
Your bonus item can be collected in-game by logging in and viewing the "Ahoy" panel on the pirate with which you would like to receive the gift.

* The Painted War Frig and Sloop items will be bestowed as a "sealed deed" item which can be used from your pirate's inventory to cause the prize ship's deed to appear. The prize ship will be docked at your home island. These War Frigs and Sloops are standard ships, and thus do not have a special "Limited Edition" icon on their dock/vessel image.
