As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Nudge searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "nudge box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "nudge 2.box" for the latter.

Nudge can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Nudge does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Nudge displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "nudge enthusiastically", "nudge sarcastically,", and so on. You can also "nudge 18373649" or "nudge toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
