Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Rip Off

It seems that you cam only go so far in the beginning until you get to a point where in order to progress in the game, you have to pay.

Money shouldn't be an issue

I know many parents (and even some kids) are concerned about how much it costs them, but they needn't worry. If you visit KingsIsle's website: FreeKI Games (https://www.freekigames.com/) you can log in with your Pirate101 account and earn crowns by doing trivia. Getting a 75%+ score will earn you 10 non-transferable crowns, and you can do 10 of them for crowns a day. I believe this is a great way to teach kids to budget and earn their own. And they may also learn some interesting facts along the way!
