I personally have to travel four hours (and cross an international border) to reach a Target.

Me win.

I see your 4 hours, and raise you a transatlantic flight.

I see your transatlantic flight, and all-in with a transpacific flight. :p

Well, if that's the way we're doing it, it would take me three days to walk to Target.

And how does Google Maps know how fast I walk?

Before I head to a Target store to purchase one of these game cards, I would like to know a few things. What are the different amounts of doubloons the cards come in, and what is the product code or how can i find out what it is?

The card comes in $10 and $20 denominations, corresponding to 42 and 90 doubloons.

I don't know the product code, but the OOO game cards will be with the other game cards, which are usually near the books, music, and movies.

Mind the bump.

Does Target still carry these? If not, it might be worth looking into seeing if they can be put into Gamestops.

One heck of a bump you got there. I don't know about Target, and their website doesn't seem to have them, but I do know that Walmart carries them.

I could have sworn I've seen them by the counters with the rest of them... maybe it was best buy... Hmm.

I have been saying this for over a year (actually might be closer to 2 yrs.), even emailed OOO rings about it. They sent me two replies stating that they are in fact still sold at Target and it must just be out in my area. I am glad others are finally able to prove that I am not wrong, mistaken, or overlooking.

As a merchandiser, I service the card racks at 7-Eleven. They have loads of different cards there, from the very popular to the rather obscure. I would think, OOO's cards would fit in there perfectly. Actually, I am surprised how many cards are bought at those 8 stores I service. During that hour I work there, at least 2 game and 3 or 4 phone cards get sold, with a couple iTune thrown in

A few days ago, Eightycats removed information about Target from the Game Cards section of the Pricing article on the wiki. Then a quarter of an hour later, Demeter removed the entire section. Soo... no more came cards.

From Here: http://www.puzzlepirates.com/Pricing.xhtml

 
Can I pay at the Grocery Store?

Sure! Exchange your coins for free at a Coinstar machine or buy a Rixty prepaid card. Rixty is available at grocery and convenience stores across the United States. Find a nearby Rixty location and Coinstar machine here.


Sure sounds like they work! Of course I would use Rixty's site directly.

The link for the word HERE is broken on the initial site. I did not attach the links in my quote.
