Octal numbering system

Or number systems in general, other than decimal...

Can anyone explain, or point me in the direction of a good explanation of octal numbers, please?

I'm working on a language and I want it to have an octal numbering system.

Thank you in advance.

Games were targeted as they have lots of posts and little actual content. Games are not forbidden and can be restarted. But they will be likely targets for future pruning.
Not trying to be snide, but can we get a board-official definition of "Game"?
