According to the Twine documentation, if a word has asterisks around it, it's rendered in italics:

Italics = *Italics*

If I want to literaly show the asterisks, then I need to put some extra characters around it:

*Boom!* == ``*Boom!*``

What is ` ?

Is it '? Because I don't get the desired results when writing ' '*Boom!*' ' or "*Boom!*".

In fact, ''text'' seems to be equivalent to **text** even though it doesn't say that on the doc pages the program links me to.

` is the backtick character. On a standard QWERTY keyboard, you can find it to the left of the row of number keys, just under the tilde (~):

In fact, ''text'' seems to be equivalent to text even though it doesn't say that on the doc pages the program links me to.

Sure it does, right in the very first cell of the table explaining Harlowe formatting:

Bold = **Bold** or ''Bold''

You can select the text to verify that the two ticks on each side of Bold are separate apostrophe characters, not a single double-quotation mark.
