I don’t know how to play Minecraft. At all. But, I’ve spent hours upon hours of my life watching my kids play it, and I love it.
Minecraft is a game that uses a lot of creativity. It’s about building things with natural and man-made materials and going on adventures. Players can explore randomly generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Me, I’m personally great at digging holes in the ground, but I’ve watched my kids make some incredible structures on their Minecraft Xbox game.
There are so many different ways to play, no one ever complains about being bored. Play in Creative Mode with unlimited resources or mine deep in Survival Mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off dangerous mobs. Use different skin packs on your characters, and different world themes with different looking materials. Do all of this alone or play with friends. Or your clueless mom!
For those who are already into the game, Minecraft toys and collectibles make great gifts – and something fun to play with when screen time is over. Best Buy carries a great assortment of Minecraft products – from the Xbox One S console bundle, to additional Minecraft games, toys and collectibles. Oh and blind boxes. Because my kids are obsessed with not knowing what they’re buying!
