Pesky pirates. They’re the scourge of the seven seas, and the purloining privateers have had it their own way for too long. It’s high time these international pests paid their own way, and finally you can force them to by getting your hands on one of these top Pop-Up Pirate USB hubs.
You heard right – finally these two incredible agents of change meet in a blaze of glory: on one side, you’ve got the four-way USB hub, allowing you to control several devices from your computer at once. On the other, you’ve got a miniature version of Pop-Up Pirate, the devilishly tense game of chance and surprise. When two worlds collide, as the saying goes, greatness is born.
For those of you who shockingly haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Pop-Up Pirate before, let us show you the ropes. Just click a little switch under the pirate’s barrel and pop the miniature marauder into the top. You’ll hear a jolly jingle to tell you that the seadog shenanigans can begin. Each player then takes a coloured cutlass and pokes it into the barrel. When someone finally pokes the pirate in the posterior, he’ll leap in the air like he’s just tasted the cat o’ nine tails!
4x USB ports
Each time you play, the position of the triggering cutlass hole changes, so you’ll never know just when the cursed corsair will fly into the rigging – and with four colours of cutlass to share with four other players, it’ll be anyone’s guess who’s next to dish out some harsh naval justice.
On the USB side, this rearing raider has four ports out the back that link to any of your USB-socketed gadgets and peripherals, and a 1m cord to connect the whole unit to your computer. You’ll be able to fire up four times the number of gizmos from just a single computer USB port – if the pirate doesn’t mutiny and take the whole lot hostage when you’re off making a brew!
