Minecraft is hard to explain because it looks and sounds tremendously boring. But at it’s core it’s like having the biggest Lego set in the world that you can build just about anything with. Out of square blocks only. And there’s zombies at night.
I asked folks on Twitter to tell me what Minecraft is:
@iChris computer Lego with zombies.

Explore the day
Build your dreams
Craft your sword, make it sharp
Build your dwelling
Survive the night

I’m watching videos like this so I can attempt to stay somewhat ahead of my son. For now.
I showed Damien, my 5 year old son, Minecraft for all of 10 minutes and his eyes lit up and his brain started running with questions.
