The Smash A Skeleton Competition was an event in Pirates Online that occurred in 2013. In the event, players would defeat the most skeleton enemies over the weekend of June 28th. The top "smashers" would receive 50,000 gold and 2 weeks of complimentary Unlimited Access. The event is strikingly similar to the Slay A Skeleton Competition that took place in 2009 and 2012.

Winners Post - July 12th

Congratulations to the winners of this year's Smash the Most Skeletons event!
Jolly Roger's undead were undone with uncanny dispatch throughout the islands during this most recent challenge.
Ye Pirates who had a "bone to pick" with the original tally were correct - we missed a few bones out there in the murky swamps. Here are the revised, final counts and winners.
Though some of the top ten traded spots, all ten remained the same Pirates. Smashing job, mates!

These mighty Pirates who were bumped from that original top forty list still retain their gold prize of course, as well as honorable mention here:

More winners is always a bit o' fortune, savvy?

The top 10 Pirates with the most skeletons smashed win 2-weeks of complimentary Unlimited Access!
If your winning Pirate is Basic, your 2-weeks Unlimited Access time begins around noon (Pacific Time) this Sunday, July 14, 2013. If your winning Pirate already enjoys Unlimited Access, the complimentary 2 weeks are added onto the end of your existing Membership. Keep in mind, this bumps your regular billing date by two weeks.

NOTE: The Unlimited Access is applied to the Pirate's account who took part in the event. Please see your e-mail for details.

All other winners, you will receive your gold code prize in an e-mail on Monday, July 15.
Your e-mail will include instructions on how to redeem your gold code in-game.

Our undying thanks to ALL Pirates
who took part in defeating the most undead!
