Sometimes movies or books can influence people to do great things, amazing things. Sometimes the most simplest of ideas can result in an amazing piece of work, both unique and entertaining. For example often adventure maps might be based on a specific movie or text. Like anything, if it done right, players who use it will often give good feedback and overall the work will have been a success. It started as a game, then a map, nows it’s a mod. The Hunger Games Mod for Minecraft 1.7.2

The Hunger Games Mod for Minecraft 1.7.2 Main Features
The mod is extremely unique; its creative features have been developed extremely well. It makes the mod just that little bit more realistic. However a mod needs to be entertaining, fun to use. Obviously the creator has not forgotten this important rule, in turn, when using this mod you will constantly be on the edge of your seat, heart pumping and adrenalin rushing when playing. Its truly a magnificent piece of work.
The Hunger Games Mod for Minecraft 1.7.3 introduces new items and weapons to the game. All of which will benefit you in different ways when competing in the games. When starting a new world you will begin with a token which will allow you to start the games. Or you can simply craft it by following the simple recipe. The names of your competitors can be changed by using a unique and creative feature the mod contains. The names of your competitors can be your friends, celebrities or simply random names, school friends, work colleagues. It’s up to you, the player. To change the name s of your competitors, a file within .minecraft can be found called ‘thgm2_nameGroups.txt’. Inside this file holds all of the default names that your competitors will begin with. For example, Katniss and Peeta, Foxface and Cato. To change a name; simply rename the default names to your likings.
When starting the games, you will be teleported to one of many different platforms surrounding the Cornucopia, the central monument. The Cornucopia will hold many containers that hold different items, food, armour and weapons that you can use to slay your enemy’s. When starting the games, you, (after right clicking with your token in hand.) a new GUI will appear on your screen. This GUI will allow you to customise some of the features of the game, such as spawning distance, difficulty, mutts (new mobs types), and the prize at the end. Be careful when deciding to start a game, if you die, your world will be deleted, and there is no going back. If you are a risk taker, just be sure to backup your worlds before attempting to compete. The games are designed to be difficult, an it is no surprise, so be careful and good luck. When competing, often a “sponsor” will send you a gift. Sponsors will send you gifts more, if you are doing relatively well in the match. Sponsor gifts can contain anything.
As mentioned earlier, this mod also introduces new items, blocks and weapons for you to use when competing in the games. They can be either crafted or simply found in and outside of the arena. These new items have been made to benefit you and add a new theme to the game. Different fighting techniques can now be used when attempting to slay other competitors. The different weapons that are introduced are:
- Throwing Knife
- Poisoned throwing knife
- NPC weapon drops
These can all be crafted by using a very simple crafting recipe(s), which is given below. Follow the recipe to craft the new items, and then take fight to your enemies.
