The Hunger Games minecraft 1.3.2
The rules for the Hunger Games are simple. 24 tributes will fight for their lives on a arena of beautiful nature, awesome redstone contraptions and gruesome traps. I have been inspired by all the good hunger games out there, and mixed them together to make a cocktail of pure fun and excitement. When i first played the Hunger Games 4 months ago i felt like it was the best map made for minecraft ever, but i wanted to make my own, so here it is.
Rules for The Hunger Games:
# Only one player can win The Hunger Games; The last tribute standing wins.
# All sorts of pvp is allowed, even lava buckets and axes.
# Tributes may not break any blocks except for vines, mushrooms and leaves.
# It is forbidden to enter the host house.
# All of the tributes will enter the arena with no items in their inventory.
# Tributes shall only place blocks found in chests.
# All sorts of hacking, cheating and x-ray texture packs is forbidden.
# If any tribute breaks the rules, this will lead to instant ban, not knowing the rules will not help them.
Optional rules and tips:
# Tributes will not get apples by breaking leaves.
# Natural disaster mods may be installed
# Tributes may return to cornucopia once in the game if they get stuck, but then they will also loose all of their items
# Any sponsor system may be added.
# Pvp is not allowed the first fifteen seconds of The Hunger Games
