Can be used on all maps.
You are level 18 when game starts, you have unlimited gold, but you can only buy the max of 2 of an item (Ex. Only 2 Deathcaps no more)

I think this game mode will be fun and quick.
Please give me your feedback.

EDIT 1/6/13
Due to PogoPogoPogoPogo and his evidence and persistence I think that the maker of the custom game should be allowed to choose how much to restrict items.

Okay... but there are no restrictions on item builds in the normal game. How can I really test end game item builds in this mode if there are end game builds I could achieve in a real match that I'm not allowed to build in this match?

There is a reason why stacking 6 Phantom Dancers doesn't really work. And stacking 6 Infinity Edge or Rabadon Deathcaps is terrible. There's a reason the pros don't do it, and it's because it's terrible in teamfights and end game.

But if I wanted to build six of those items in a real game, nothing prevents me from doing it. So why shouldn't I be allowed to try it out in this sandbox mode?

Why is building multiple of an item automatically trolling?

I'm not allowed to build 3 Doran's Blades? Or more? I'm not allowed to build 3 or more Warmog's Armor as Volibear? Boots, Atma's Impaler, and four Warmog's isn't inherently trolling as Volibear. It's a perfectly legitimate build...

Yet your sandbox mode, which you're asking for primarily as a way to test builds, limits my ability to test builds in a way that no other game mode limits me.

anything with an unlimited gold option would be fun to play just to have a quick relaxing game, and practice team fighting.

It would be a nice way to get the feel of different builds, but is pretty unrealistic compared to normal games. In a normal game a support doesn't get a lot of gold, and early game champions never have their chance at being aggressive to shut down late game champs, since you are forcing the late game. This should really be named "Sandbox Mode" instead of "Fun Mode", that feels more fitting anyway. I've never understood why League didn't have a way to test different builds and skills, without starting a custom game by yourself and farming up.

Good idea. I think this would also be nice for fives teams to train up team fights etc. and would be more relaxing and fun, testing builds.So yeah

I like this idea, just for the sake of practicing team fights.

So I have a question. Why, exactly, are you calling it "fun mode", giving level 18 and unlimited gold right away, and then restricting the items you can buy?

"I'm going to give you a billion dollars, make you invincible to every sort of death, but you can only do anything in the world a grand total of twice. IE. you can only have *** twice, you can only eat twice, etc."

Wtf?

Im not sure you get what he means, the restrictions on the items is so that people actually get to try out diff. items instead of stacking 6 deathcaps and IE, or if you are master YI stacking 6 phantom dancers and just trolololol everywhere, the restrictions is so people can have fun while making progress to their normal games by trying out new builds and testing them out in late game scale teamfights, p.s. if riot actually reads this and agrees to do so, i would pick karthus every single game just cause of his ult.

This seems fun, especially for new players who tend to have trouble in teamfights (me included). Also a nice touch would be to have ~3-4 minutes before the champs can exit base to give time to buy these items.
