You and your parents should read this: http://www.puzzlepirates.com/support/faqs/

After that, you're on your own, mate. I do let my son play (what little he can). As for the cost, it's cheaper than going to the movies once a month, and it's unlimited play.

Thanks! I'll check out the Link now...
I just cannot even think of walking away from such a game...

LukeAlex.
Edit: Thanks again! Yeah, but still...knew some of that, but some I didn't.
But still, I'll welcome ideas.(Within reason)
I have a question, When you get the e-mail letting you play for free, does it give you the equivalent of a Subscription too???

Why are yer parents balking at letting ye subscribe?
If'n it be because of lack of funds I am sure a hearty lad such as yerself could find various age-appropriate jobs around yer house or neighborhood that would help pay fer the game? (like yard work or dog walking or such) Not only would ye be getting good exercise but it would demonstrate to yer parents how important the game be to ye and how ye are willing to work fer the privilege. :)
If'n yer parents are worried about yer safety (and what good parent isn't???) then let them try the game for a bit. We will show 'em we be friendly and fun-loving people! There be many helpful pirates that be watching over ye in our community. ;)

Doubloons have cost exactly the same price for years. 42 dubs for $10.

Oh, what's that? You want it to be easier to play the game FOR FREE? Sorry, kiddo. No sympathy.

I've asked about working to pay for me subscription...only for some reason beyond me, they do not like it.
Great idea, but hopeless...unless I can somehow get them addicted, I doubt if I can keep playing...easier said than done. I've asked them about trying the game themself, but they will not. They will not even come to this website!
I have enough Cash meself to pay fer a month an a half, but they will not let me use that, for other reasons...

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.

Your best chance is that, for three months you can play a game you like for only 20 dollars, while you can get a PS2 or computer game that you might play for two weeks for over 50 dollars.

What are their reasons for not letting you subscribe? Maybe talking about it with them will help them understand why you want to play so much and will help you understand their concerns.

Of course, it may not be the game at all they're concerned about, but rather giving out their credit card number to a company they don't know. A lot of people are still concerned about internet security and giving out their credit card number over the net. I know that my parents probably would've reacted the same way as yours are if I asked them to give their credit card number over the internet.

They might also be worried that you'll get absorbed into the game too much. It might of happened already even. If you spent 4 or 5 hours in front of the computer doing nothing else, I'd be worried as well if I was a parent. Maybe counter this by limiting yourself to one or two hours a day? Join activities, extra curicular stuff. By voluntarily limiting your playtime, you're making a mature decision and show that you are willing to work towards compromise. This might help them see your point.

Also note that talking about it calmly while respecting their decision will only help your cause. If you go up to them every hour and go "Please let me subscribe! Pleeeeaaase!" won't help you out. Ask them, and if they say no, go out and earn your money anyways. Then, after a week or two, approach them again and explain that you've worked hard to earn the money.

Note however that these aren't surefire solutions, and they still might decide to not let you play. And, truth be told, the decision really is up to them. Just remember that they are doing this with your best interests in mind, even if they are going under false assumptions.

Sorry, just needed to re-quote this.

I just had to deal with a similar situation with Amtgard. One of our 12-year old players wanted to ride with me to a camping event, and I had to insist that I would leave him behind unless I got to speak with one of his parents/legal guardians before the event and know they were okay with the idea. He's finally starting to realize that he's going to have to build his parents' trust in the game and in the people who play it before he'll be allowed to do much more than show up to the local park every weekend.

I've also had kids come up to me and express interest in the game, but lament that their parents wouldn't let them play because it contains elements of violence, and of magic (which in their eyes is demonic). And I've had to tell them that if their parents object, I can't let them play. And I'm sure as heck not going to lie to them about how the game works.

Do I sometimes think these parents are being unreasonable or overly protective? Yes. Does that give me the right to usurp their authority, or to encourage the kids to defy them? Absolutely not. (And in my particular case, I could've been slapped with kidnapping charges if I'd just up and given the kid a ride.)

Aops, you've been given a lot of advice on how to demonstrate your maturity and how to build their understanding about this game, and I really hope it works for you. But if all of it still comes to naught, you're going to have to accept that you don't have much recourse 'til you hit the age of majority.

Depending on what their actual objections are, this one might cover a lot of them. Let them see what you're doing. Heck, show them this discussion.

Edit: I forgot their reluctance to look at it. Maybe trade some chores for having them at least LOOK at it?

While your parents will be the ones who decide what is best for you, show them this thread.

One year ago, my daughter-in-law introduced my son to this game. She knew my rules regarding computer safety. She explained to me that this was a great game for my son. While he was playing, I would lurk over his shoulder as I often did when he was on the computer. In time, he made a pirate just for me and turned me into a bilge rat. I can't begin to tell you all the safety rules built into this game. I heartily endorse it. Our crew itself is based on being family friendly. In the course of the game my son has learned so much.
1. Budgeting--working for everything you own
2. Making decisions--and how to deal with making a bad choice
3. Economics--how they apply in real life as well as in the game
4. Politics and their affect on your crew and flag
5. History--learning from the mistakes of previous events
6. Leadership--gaining the respect of others
7. Friendships--how to choose good friends and stay away from those who might cause you or your crew/flag harm
8. Information--reading for understanding in the forums to learn how to do something new or improve on what you are already doing
9. Discussions----with other crew and flag mates, as well as with me--communication skills are highly used in this game
10.Planning time--he is very active in school (honor roll), theater, music, and with real life friends. Real life first--plays the game for fun.
11. International Culture--the puzzle pirate community consists of people from all over the world. Learn about their holidays, languages, and even geography.
12. Nemo's Art thread in Shore Leave--tips for the aspiring artists and sharing of their work.


I am sure I will think of more benefits and will edit this list as I do.

Of all the games out there that I have seen, this is the most educational, clean cut, non-violent game one can find. Take a test run with your child and see for yourself. You will be laughing and talking together many times. In case you are wondering, well, my lad is but 14. Ole mum here is 50+. :)

If I did Print it they probably would throw the pages away and blame me for wasting paper on something that they think is dumb.
Hope you have a Concorde, Crooktooth, I live in Maine.
Although that's not a bad idea, a Blockade. Like someone said, I could play that I was Carpentering(Carping) and board up the doors. Our windows are high enough up so that if you jumped out one it would be painful. There is 1 window, but its halfway down a set of stairs... That would leave them only our cellar windows. Of course, those windows are tiny...*looks around nervously*say, I'll wait for Crooktooth and the others before I try that......I always wanted a tree fort...

You can always bring up on how social the game is. Its not like other games that you can spend hours on in without talking to some one. Here you can spend some time playing the puzzle and then talking with your mates, and it really does teach you communication skills. And it helps your typing skills a lot. You never know if you might need those skills when you get a job and all.

Point'em at the Loots. Anyone who thinks they're a bad influence (or ignores'em) won't ever be convinced. I'll tell you, even I learned stuff here--I'd've never found out what a trochee was if it weren't for those crazy fellows.

Haha, just thought of a proper warning for players of Y!PP:
Caution: Puzzles may cause an increase in planning ability, cognitive function, and economy of movement. People here are friendly, courteous, and responsive, and exposure to all these factors may indeed make you smarter. Beware!

Or you can do what I do, and exist primarily on the forum. We got a few people like that, come to think on it. I'm certain you can find an adequate solution no matter what happens.

Does not mean that by them you are bound
But down your path you should ask before long
If their fiat now made has a basis sound?

Communication
Is the mouth and the delta
The river of life

Fronsac, human.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to
add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
