Minecraft Tribes Coming in May


NEW MINECRAFT MOD IN BETA TESTING

I have done several articles on Minecraft toys and figures which is what this blog is about, as well as a book review, but I thought I would take a moment to introduce the new and innovative Minecraft Tribes mod.

This version of the popular game is designed for players who enjoy the mining, building and engineering aspects of Minecraft but also enjoy the excitement and challenge of an occasional battle or raid.

Tribes PvP allows you to put your creations to the test in a rigorous PvP environment. Whether you use walls, castles, or booby traps, the only rule is war.

While the only rule may be war, there are incentives to build beautiful towns or castles as well protection for your base from attacks when you are not present to defend it.

Beta Testing is underway now. The new Minecraft Tribes mod will be available in May 2017. Check out http://minecrafttribes.com/ for details.

Multiple Minecraft Figures Mean More Fun




 As promised last month, here is the 3rd and maybe final installment in my Minecraft figures series.

Mojang has put out a variety of toys and figures in the Minecraft world, and there are assorted sizes to chose from as well as a plethora of characters to chose from, everything from the main characters, Steve and Alex, to a wide variety of mobs - the animals and monsters that inhabit the world of Minecraft.


Assortments range from the cute little minis, found in mystery boxes and packages of three, to three inch figures found in at least two series of assorted creepers, villagers, and heroes, to the larger action figures of Alex and Steve and their friends.



There are even Lego building sets so you can build your little figures their own Minecraft world! If you enjoy Minecraft or know someone who does, these little figures and builds are sure to entertain.

Minecraft Secrets:Totally Awesome Builds Book Review


Strolling through my local Walgreen's clearance section, I came upon two Minecraft figures and the book Minecraft Secrets:Totally Awesome Builds marked down low, so of course I snapped them all up.

The Minecraft Secrets book was only $2 and looked colorful, so I figured I had very little to lose, even though it is the unofficial guide.

After all, according to the book's cover, "Minecraft is the world's hottest game!"


I plan to do an article on the small figures soon for this blog but thought I would mention the book as a resource for anyone who enjoys the game or the figures. 

Minecraft Secrets:Totally Awesome Builds does not quite live up to its name but it full of useful info for the Minecraft beginner. Having watched a long-time gamer play Minecraft and build a computer that adds among other advanced contraptions, this book appeared very elementary, and the pictures were often small and somewhat dark. In addition, there were no instructions on how to achieve the awesome builds shown in the Gallery section.


 However, it does go over Minecraft basics like the friendly creatures and foes to be  found in the game as well as biomes and other information including how to use redstone, and there were plenty of photos of interesting builds.



Being a die-hard J.R.R. Tolkien fan and Lord of the Rings nerd, my favorite build was Minas Tirith by EpicQuestz pictured here.

Now I need to find it online so I can visit all seven layers.
All in all, Minecraft Secrets:Totally Awesome Builds is a great book for Minecraft enthusiasts, especially those who are new to the game, and at just $2, it was a steal! Since i occasionally enjoy building on Minecraft for a little R&R, I may use it for inspiration and to 
Imagine it...
Create it... and
Build it!

Minecraft Dolls & Action Figures



If you have kids, more than likely you have heard about Minecraft, the computer game where kids build with dirt, wood and stone and dig for gold, iron, diamonds, emeralds and other gems. A growing number of players stay with the game into their late teens and early 20s, and gamer guys find Minecraft a good way to get their girlfriends into gaming.

Developed by Swedish game designer Markus Persson in 2009, and later fully fleshed out and published by Mojang, Microsoft announced it was buying Mojang and Minecraft  in 2014.

Minecraft's popularity has spawned a number of dolls and action figure during it's popular run which appear in various toy and department stores every year. Here are a few currently available.

So for birthdays and other special occasions, a Minecraft plush toy might be worth digging up!
