The Item Game is a forum game that I first learned about on another forum. Since then, I've hosted the game many times. I tell you, it is incredibly fun, although a bit tedious for the host, as it takes enormous commitment.

Here's how the game works (it is difficult to understand at first, and ultimately playing the game is the best way to learn)

First, we accumulate a certain number of people. We will be accumulating only 6 for this game. It works well with more people, but this is going to be a short "test" version, and will only consist of 3 simplified rounds (the game gets very complicated).

Once we have enough people, the game begins. I first start by posting the round, which will look like this:

Level One
Round 1

Events

New Enemies
A Wild Pikachu appears!
A Hungry Zombie appears!

New Items
A styrofoam brain appears!
A pokeball appears!
A nerf gun appears!
5x Nerf bullets appear!
A friendly cleric appears!

Enemies

Wild Pikachu - HP 50/50 - Static

Hungry Zombie - HP 20/20 - Zombify

Items

Styrofoam Brain
Pokeball
Nerf Gun - Durability 5x
5x Nerf Bullets

NPCs

Friendly Cleric - HP 20/20 - Healer

Players

Bacteriophage - HP 50/50




But what does that all mean? Let me try to explain it in parts.

At the top of the round is the level and round information. Once all the enemies have been defeated, you move up a level.

Events are there to tell you what is going on. Events tell you when enemies spawn, items appear, and lots of other stuff!

Enemies are what you have to defeat in order to beat the game. When you defeat all the enemies, you move up a level! You defeat enemies by using items. More on them in a moment!

Items are the main part of the game! You use items in creative and wacky ways to defeat enemies!

NPCs are non playable characters that are !usually! beneficial to the players. Unlike enemies, you don't have to defeat NPCs to move up a level.

Players are real people that have to defeat enemies to beat the game! They have HP, and enemies attack them each round.

So, once I post the beginning of the round, it's time for you to post your turn! You contribute to the round by using items. You can use items during your turn, but you won't find out the outcome of your turn until the end of the round! Here's what a proper turn looks like:

"I throw the pokeball at the wild pikachu!"

Here's what an improper turn looks like:

"I throw the pokeball at the wild pikachu, and catch it!"

What's wrong? You decided the outcome! The outcome is only revealed at the end of the round, and decided by the host.

This is the part where you go,

OHMYGOD I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON?!?!?!

I really hope that I explained it as best as possible, but again, you have to play it to really understand it.

Once we get 6 people, the game will begin! Please ask questions during this time so I can answer them, so that you may have a better understanding of the game.

I'll be editing this post, and trying to improve the tutorial so that it's easier to understand (I've hosted many games, and I have never been able to perfect the tutorial).

Although the game seems pretty clear to me I have two small questions.
1. Are all the items available to everybody? Can you just pick one from the list?
2. Can you do actions not involving items too? (kicking one of the enemies for example)

1. All items are available to all players. Items are not available to enemies or npcs, though certain enemies such as the thief can steal items.
2. You can in fact do actions that do not involve items, but in general they won't do much damage.

Yes, you can use an item on another item to create a new item.

The only time you can combine more than two items is by using a special item that may or may not appear in this game.

    We have enough players! If I could just have everyone that signed up post here to confirm their participation, that would be great!

    Excellent! I just need the other 5 people (not really NumberOnett or Gio7sm, since they signed up more recently) to confirm that they still want to participate, and we can start. I've already finished the CSS for Level 1.
