Gumberkules | 3 comments Hi All,

The latest podcast brought up the idea of a "Hunger Games" TV show. This would never work b/c of all the death needed to make it watchable. But as luck would have it, I was listening to the podcast while playing MineCraft.

I was struck by the compatibility of the two. Minecraft makes you use the environment and weapons to defend yourself. It would also be relatively easy to make a mod for it restricting arena sizes and weapons. You could also offer zero respawns.

It wouldn't be as captivating as watching a "Hunger Game" in meat space but it would still be pretty fun to play in the virtual world.

Just my two cents,

This has Already been done, there called the Minecraft survival games. The maps are not true representations of the Hunger Games world, but they do make for interesting gameplay. The online Minecrast Survival Games servers can be found at:

The game puts you and upto 23 other ‘tributes’ against each other, in breath taking Minecraft scenery, on a map which poses some challenges of its own.
