I have two suggestions for you:

1/ Becoming a pirate....
- Insist on going shopping, and buy piratey clothes.
- A sword would be nice as well.
- Change clothes frequently, in the middle of the street/shop/bank/anywhere.
- Challenge your parents to swordfights, and throw lego blocks at them until they collapse in a big plastic heap.
- Ensure your clothes crumble to dust after a few weeks of wearing them.
- Fire cannonballs at your neighbours house in an attempt to sink them.
- No cannonballs? Use cutlery, rubber ducks, pet gerbils, or whatever else comes to hand.
- Play a real life drinking game on the most valuable piece of furniture in your house.
- Insist on carping at the kitchen table. Fill all the holes, doors will do well for this puzzle too.
- Fill the basement with water and bricks, then spend an hour or so swapping the bricks around to try to make the water level go down. If you have any jellyfish lying around, throw them in too. Ignore the fact that if you take out all the bricks, the water level will drop anyway (displacement theory).
- If you feel the need to sail, do so. You can easily make your own sailing puzzle with some sandstone blocks and a window to drop them from. Midair rotation is harder in real life so practice until your rating goes up.
- Navigation will require you to be sat on the roof in the middle of the night. Do this.
- Only speak in piratey language. "HARRR!!" is a good reply to anything anyone says to you.
- Need new clothes? Go try some on, if you don't like them, walk out of the shop still wearing them so they're automatically removed from you.
- Blockade a local shopping mall with a few of your friends.
- Go foraging in the garden, and return with armfuls of wood, stone, or whatever else grows in your garden. Bear in mind that the less there is of something, the more valuable it is, so grab the rare stuff first.

*will update this list later today so check for edits, gotta get to work now*

2/ Convince them with words
- It costs the same per year as a new PS2 game.


Wow... I like option 1

Sounds to me like we need an intervention. Everybody grab yer piraty clothes and head fer Aops' house. We'll blockade the driveway until his folks submit.

(Then we start building the fort in the back yard)

I've just read this entire thread and I have to say that I love this comment from Reverie. I don't think that reading is encouraged enough in this day and age.

Also, I'm glad to hear that LukeAlex finally got his subscription...uh, back on page 6! If ye're still in the game, buddy, then I hope you're enjoying it. I also hope that you're still doing the chores for your parents or, if you're old enough by now and have moved out of home that you've discovered why they needed your help with the chores to begin with! ;) I also hope that you stayed in school and graduated and that one day you'll come and give us an update on how you're doing cause five years is a long time! :P

WOW is all I can say. I read this entire thread and I loved it. It's been REALLY long now since someone last posted. I think this thread deserves to be read more often by all, parents and their kids. It makes me so happy to hear about people enjoying this game so long ago because it really is the best. I can imagine that some of you "kids" who posted way back in 2004 are definately older now and I hope you're still having fun now. I bet this thread helped many people so I can see why it's stickied. This game has developed into so much more since 2004, lol. Love you all, keep having fun. :)

Or Y!PP could use what they earn to keep the game we love running and you could just donate an amount to a charity of your choice?
