I don’t know what to think about the whole Notch vs Yogscast ‘f-bombing’ thing.  In the first place, I’m not to familiar with Yogscast and haven’t watched their show–I’d rather be building in Minecraft than watching something about it, and will usually only watch tutorials to help me figure out something new.   Secondly, Notch seems to be the type of guy to trust, even though he does also seem a bit impulsive occasionally.  Like those times that he announced a new feature or something being taken out of the game, but then later said he was joking.  I think I’ll still give him the benefit of the doubt since he has made a great game!  Also, I don’t really think it matters one way or the other.

Here we go, after a false start, the entry’s for November are in!  I decided to record them on youtube instead of making static images.  Let us know which one you like better in the comments section.  If we do this again, I will figure out the best way to do actual voting!  I’ll tally the winners on Thanksgiving!

Edit:Since I haven’t seen any votes yet, I’ll let it go through November 30th.

My sons, RedPanther (8 yrs old) and Builderman(5 yrs old) have been playing minecraft for over a year now.  They have built up a competition as to who is the better builder!  So they asked me to come up with a competition.  If it works out, we might do it again!

  • Start: At 5pm on Thursday November 17th
  • Mode: Creative
  • Subject: Anything
  • Time Limit: 24 hrs-(Including sleep and school time.)
  • Judge: Open ballot
  • Additional notes: After the 24 hrs are up, I will walk through their submissions and take screenshots.  I plan on taking 5 of each and then posting  them here at some time after 6pm Friday November 18th.
  • May the best guy win!



Edit:Friday 18th 10:38pm.  I finally got around to looking at the submissions and have some questions, but the boys are both asleep.  I’ll have to ask them in the morning.
