    September 19th was national Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Newtoy, the developers of Words With Friends, decided that the day shouldn’t go unmarked. Hence the new arrival of Words With Pirates on the App Store. If you’re a bit too skittish to actually talk like a pirate in honor of our proud national holiday, perhaps you should download the app instead and enjoy a bit of private pirate revelry.

    Words With Pirates is just like Words With Friends, but with some notable differences. First, you spell mainly with Y, A, R, G, H, and the brand-new ! character. In other words, you’re just roaring “ARRRGH!” and various permutations over and over again. And the entire app is draped with a pirate theme—you challenge your friends to duels, not games, for example. It’s a lot like using Facebook in Pirate English.

    The game is free—for now. Apparently it won’t be sticking around for long, just long enough to briefly celebrate piracy and get Newtoy some publicity. Oh, well. If you want to show off your piratey dialogue skills, sail on over to the App Store and snag the free app. Happy belated Talk Like a Pirate Day!
