If you're playing on one of the Hunger Games servers, you may be wondering, "What are some easy ways to help me win?" I have some of those ways right here!

My first tip: Work by yourself! Unless you're web chatting or in the same room with your team-mate, teams can be difficult to work with. By talking just through MC chat, you may find it hard to know what your team-mate has in mind. Also, you're much safer. You never know if your team-mate will be loyal or a backstabber.

My second tip: If the server has kits for you to choose, find out what each includes. You're better off picking one that comes with food or weapons.

My third tip: Before the games start, take a look around at the map. Search for a spot with plenty of trees and some mines nearby. I suggest looking for a swamp biome where there are plenty of mushrooms and trees. Mushrooms are a great source of food for Mushroom Stew.

My fourth tip: When the games begin, get wood as soon as possible. You should be safe with at least 4 logs. Once you feel you have enough logs, look for mushrooms or animals for food. If you don't see any animals around, don't waste your time. Burrow in the ground or find a mine.

My fifth tip: Once you've burrowed or found a mine, hold the shift key on your keyboard. This allows you to crouch and hides your nametag from others as they pass by. Once you feel the coast is clear, start gathering your supplies. But keep holding shift as much as you can just to be safe!

My sixth tip: Continue by making a crafting table and a wood pickaxe. Start mining the stone for a stone pickaxe and a furnace. Then find as much iron as you can. You're going to need enough iron for a full set of iron armor, as well as an iron sword. Depending on the server you play on, there might be a feast. A feast is when there is a set location where special, rare, and very needed items can be found. However, it's very deadly and dangerous. The feast usually occurs when there are only a few remaining players left, so if you've made it this far, congratulations!!! Wait a couple minutes after the feast has begun. Don't worry - there will still be items leftover. You have a better chance of not getting killed if you wait. Watch your back at all times. If you survive the feast, make sure you have full health. After your hunger and hearts are full, it's time to start hunting people. Pick off as many people as you can. But keep stocked up on food and keep your hearts and hunger full!

I hope these tips help you to win the Hunger Games!

Hey guys,

Just wanted to say that I have the Cultivator kit for the Hunger Games, and it makes the Games so much easier! For those of you who don't know what the Cultivator kit does, it grows saplings and seeds instantly. I love it because I can get food so much easier. And, when working on a team, you can easily supply food for the whole team. I highly suggest thinking about getting the Cultivator kit! Make sure to check out some of the other kits, there's a lot of good ones!
