Pieces of eight are a currency earned from the Trouble Brewing minigame used to buy rewards from Honest Jimmy's House of Stuff. During a game of Trouble Brewing, each resource deposited (i.e. buckets of water, bowls of coloured water, etc.) and opponent equipment burned (i.e. pipes, pump, etc.) will result in a piece of eight being awarded at the end of the game, up to 100 pieces of eight. Each bottle of rum deposited by the player's team gives 2 extra pieces to each player on the team at the end of the game. Pieces of eight awarded for bottling rum do not count towards the 100 pieces of eight limit for resources and sabotage, making it possible for players to earn more than 100 pieces of eight in a single game.

The amount received at the end of a game is not dependent on who is winning. The score is more for keeping track of how many rather than who has the most, but it may still be used as such.

It takes approximately 8 hours to complete a full outfit, the average amount earned is 100+ and each match is 20 minutes long.
