Released ca. 1996[1]

A Pirates game file holds the data on a single game of "Pirates: Quest for the Seas", a pirate-themed late 1990s Windows computer game that allows turn-based multiplayer through email. The game file is first created by someone with access to each players' character/user profiles, and then sent between the players, in the order that they have their turns.[2] It has the extension .pir.[3] It can also be used on a purely local game, in which players use the same machine.[3]
