In this game, you have an animal avatar. When you create your account, the only animals that come up are the tiger, the wolf, a panda, a bunny, a seal, the koala, the penguin, and a monkey. For now, you can only get those animals because 1) you are not a member yet, and 2) they are the basic animals and you can always get different animals once you have completed the tutorial and have enough gems. Then you pick a name. Your name can't be anything, and they have a selection of words that you can put together to be you name. There are three columns, and there are word in each column. the first column has adjectives, nouns, and verbs. For instance, a couple of the adjectives to choose from are happy, glam, and major. Some of the nouns to choose from are snowflake, leader, and miss. And, some of the verbs are dancing, jumping, and pouncing. That is the first word. The second word and the third word come together and make one word. (Word, word, word.) Like the first column, there are adjectives, verbs, and nouns in the second and third column. My fox's name on Animal Jam is Miss Spiritfox.
After the tutorial you receive 2,500 gems, the currency in the game. Now you have enough to buy another animal with 1,500 gems left over! You have a den, which is you house. You can buy house decorations and furniture from right there! Like on most virtual games, you have a buddy list. On your buddy list, there is all of your buddies, and at the bottom it says _/100. The first number is how many buddies you have. You can have up to 100 buddies. once you buddy someone and you have under 5 buddy slots left, it will say "you now have _ slots left".
Add me as a buddy! My username is loldude345.
There are different places that you can go in Jamaa, which is the world of Aninal Jam. I'll cover that and more in my next post! That was part one for this post, because I am going to do a part two about the rest I have to say about Animal Jam.
