Chat commands
/emote (/me)
/speak (/say)
/tell (/msg)
/think (/ponder)

The /game command allows those pirates who are watching or playing a multiplayer puzzle to chat to one another. It is the default channel for chatting during multiplayer games.


The Game command has the following syntax:

/game <message> (/ga)

The Game command can be combined with the three modifier commands - /think, /shout, and /emote:

/game /think <message>
/game /shout <message>
/game /emote <message>

Note that pirates can not use /shout from certain locations. See shout for details.

Appearance in-game

An example of the Game command (top), and how it appears combined with the Think, Shout, and Emote commands.

Messages sent by game chat take the following form:

Piratename says, "Message"
Piratename thinks, "Message" (When combined with /think)
Piratename shouts, "Message" (When combined with /shout)
Piratename Message (When combined with /emote)

All Game messages are shown in the chat window. Their borders taper to a point on either side of the message. They use the following colors:

Color RGB (hex) Component
#DBDDDC Text background
#808081 Border

Who can use this command

  • All who are playing or watching a multiplayer puzzle have access to the Game command.
  • Note that the command is only activated once the match has begun; if the puzzle is still awaiting players in the parlor interface, that puzzle's game chat is not available.
  • Pirates who have been blackspotted can not use this chat command for a short time.

Who can hear messages sent with this command

  • Everyone who is playing or watching the same multiplayer game as the message sender can see the message.
  • If one pirate has muted another, that first pirate will be unable to hear the muted pirate regardless of what channel the muted pirate talks in.
