Haha Arrays stump quite a few people but they are not that difficult once you start to use them, Basically to put it as easy as i can to understand, it's like a table/grid of data, so can be used for inventory stuff as well as alot of other stuff, and you can have small arrays or large depending on what your doing.
Say you want to store data for an inventory or set of item's for your player lets say 5 items you can have a grid/table 1x5 to store the data in.
so in that array you could store Health,Money,Wood,Gold,Potions, etc you get the idea now, arrays can store numbers or text (int or string).
