*Don’t know what Minecraft is?
“Minecraft® is a game that takes place in a 3D World where the player is free to roam and explore. It is called “Minecraft®” because it is centered around “mining” for basic materials in the ground and then “crafting” those materials into a wide variety of things (blocks, tools, food, etc.). It is much more open-ended than most games because there usually is no definite objective. It is called a “Sandbox” game because it allows users to play around, explore, and create what they want.” – Mod Design 1 FAQ
