Minecraft Masters

During the school week, our kids are not allowed to use any "electrics". That means, no TV, no computers, no PSP, no Wii, no iPads etc. Usually these things are only available to them on the weekends. And in the holidays...

These holidays have been particularly "electrical".
We were supposed to go to Singapore/Malaysia for a few days and visit the new Legoland - but the flights were so full we didn't get on unfortunately, so instead the kids have been hanging about at home chilling quite a lot. They've also had plenty of play dates, which often (at least for Lucas) means playing Wii - or the latest, playing 'Minecraft'.

Lucas got introduced to 'Minecraft' by his friend Nikolas, and since they've been hanging out for the last two days together, there has been a lot of building going on!
This morning Lucas got Linnea into it too, and after the initial introduction they ended up sitting on each their computer working together (I hope?) to play the game!

'Minecraft' is a game that is focused on creativity and building, allowing players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. You can read more about it here. (I wasn't aware, but it was actually created by a Swede (!).)
