SUMMER SKYWAYS




NEW WEBSITE FOR TRIVIA GAMES



FreeKI Games Trivia are getting a new home! They have migrated over to the Wizard101 and Pirate101 main websites.

This migration is in preparation for the eventual closure of FreeKI Games later this year. Until that closure date arrives, the original trivia quizzes pages now automatically redirect you to the new pages if accessed from the FreeKI Games’s website.

News about Grub Guardian will be announced at a later date.

Free Crowns for Trivia Quizzes

Did you know that completing these trivia quizzes can net you additional Crowns?

Each online trivia quiz you pass will automatically apply 10 Crowns to your KingsIsle account. You can complete 10 free trivia games per day and take each quiz once per day for Crowns. Come back each day to complete more free trivia questions and earn more Crowns!

Crowns can be applied to your Wizard101 and Pirate101 accounts to help you access premium zones and add cool game items to your supply.

Let us know if you have any questions about this update!

KI LIVE WITH SPARCK & PROFESSOR FALMEA


We had another fun KI Live! These shows are for all our games including of course Pirate101. For this particular one we focused on Wizard101’s upcoming Summer Update coming soon to Test Realm. If you also enjoy playing Wizard101, you are going to want to tune in to the show, now available on YouTube:


Secret Reader Bonus - As of this newsletter's announcement, for those who didn't get a chance to redeem the KI Live giveaway code yet, we opened it up again (SUMMERSNACKS2020) for another 500 redemptions!

For more videos and livestreams, be sure to subscribe to KingsIsle's YouTube channel.

A great Pirate101 tip from KI Live comes from community member TheyMayBeBears:

“When selling things at the bazaar, if an item is already well stocked, go sell it at another vendor so you get more for your money. A level 65 ring that would sell for about 450 gold at the Bazaar can be sold for more than 1,000 from another vendor!” - TheyMayBeBears

PUPPET PIRATES COMMUNITY CHOICE


Congrats Clever James Englund, the community chose your quote for Puppet Pirates #92!
