The first On Board Games specialty episode series were our Pirated episodes. On Board Games Pirated were created by Donald/Walsfeo. In these episodes he 'pirates' the feed, plays pirate related music by some of his favorite bands (renfest and modern alike) and reviews a pirate themed game of some sort, even though most pirate themed games are pretty weak.
In the Pirate vs. Ninja debate On Board Games comes down on the side of Pirates because the hosts like rum, a brisk sea, and big guns. Individually they also like pirate wenches, cabin boys, and monkeys, but you'll have to guess which host prefers what on your own time; though Giles is awfully fond of parrots.
