Cheat cards

In Pirates of the Caribbean Online, the player can partake in two card games of chance in island taverns: Poker and Blackjack. Another form of Poker, known as Undead Poker, can be done during the Raven's Cove Story Quest

Finding Cards

Often when defeating an enemy, the pirate may find a playing card among the loot; most often from an EITC, Royal Navy or Skeleton. Normally, the tougher the enemy - the better the card.

Black Mack in the Rowdy Rooster tavern in Port Royal will give you quest to win 150 gold. Return to him and he'll give you another quest to kill a skeleton. Then, come back for your free card.

You can repeat the quest and keep collecting as many cards as you like! Yes, you could potentially have all 52 cards up your sleeve at once! And you may have more than one copy of the same card (with the max being 100 of the same card and a max of all cards being a total of 5,200 cards).

Shane McGreeny in Port Royal's Royal Anchor bar gives out three different quests, each of whose payoff is a cheat card.

Cheating with Cards

And while a good honest game may be hard to come by, nothing says a little extra something up your sleeve wouldn't hurt?

Pirates may want to Swap cards while playing Blackjack or Poker in the taverns to move the odds in their value.

During the pirate's turn, the game will prompt for them to swap cards. If the pirate chooses to swap a card - they can then choose the suit and value of card - from those in their possession. A card swap may fail. If so, the game continues anyway.But you cannot swap cards again for the rest of the round.

If the pirate swaps for a card that ends up in play by another pirate or the dealer - they are caught cheating. Any gold won during that sitting will be lost, the player will be fined 100 gold, and the pirate is immediately sent to the nearest jail, you will not be groggy upon waking up. The message will say that you have been caught cheating by the dealer, and you have been fined 100 gold. To avoid this, you can stand up every time after cheating then sit back down.
