New to Minecraft? Or a grizzled long term veteran? Plymouth Minecraft has something for you!
What is Plymouth Minecraft?
We've got our own, dedicated Minecraft server that we'll play on all day. It's a huge map with loads of different areas and even has it's own location map that updates in real time throughout the day.
All you need to bring is your laptop/computer and copy of Minecraft (which you can download from here).
We'll give you all the details to be able to access our server on the day and some tips for staying safe whilst playing online. We'll also have a challenge set by our gamesmaster to take part in during the day.
If you don't fancy that then of course you can come along and do your own thing too. As with all MESH events we'll have a number of experts on hand that you'll be able to talk to and gain some valuable help and advice from.

What is it?
Minecraft is more than just a game, it's a worldwide phenomenon that promotes problem solving, teamwork, lateral thinking and much more! If you don't already know about it, your kids probably do!
How often do you run them?
Currently we are running every two months, but we are happy to do them more or less frequently depending on demand.
Who is it for?
All ages are welcome, but those under the age of 16 should be accompanied by an adult. We would like to encourage anyone with an interest to come along and get involved!
What about food?
We provide snacks and a selection of refreshments through the day but you will find you need more sustainance. Bring your own packed lunch or buy one of our buffet tickets and leave it to us to take care of. The choice is up to you.
Can I play on xbox/PS4/Pocket Edition?
Sure you can, but not in the same world as everyone else. Bring along your PC, Linux desktop or laptop machine or Mac with your copy of Minecraft to get involved. Any version of Minecraft is welcome but on PC/Linux/Mac can play online via our server we are afraid. Its worth noting that although the pi version of minecraft is technically linux, it won't work on our server. Sorry!
Will my stuff be there next time I come along?
Your virtual stuff should be! We back up the server each week and will do our best to make sure it is available for you even when you aren't here.
What are the rules?
Just be nice to each other (unless there is some form of deathmatch). Breaking and entering is discouraged, stealing and griefing are all discouraged and may lead to swift retribution :)
If you have any questions about the day, the event or comments on how we could improve them, please feel free to contact us.
