How did your first night go in Minecraft?

    How did your first night go in Minecraft?

    By this I mean your very first night when you started playing the game. My first night was on the Xbox 360 version and I was playing co-op with my wife. I knew we needed to build a house, but I knew nothing about the crafting system. We ended up on an island, digging frantically throughout the night, but never actually managed to get anything built. I think it took two more nights after that before we finally had a door and a torch. I think the only thing that saved us was that we were on an island, but near the end we were getting hit by a lot of arrows.

    all I did my first night was build a house/mansion type building out of wooden blocks. I didn't have a door or anything either I just made an exterior wall and interior wall to have several rooms. I also made a small area that was just stone blocks as a safe room incase monsters swarmed around me. I also played the xbox version.

    I've been playing Minecraft for a little over a year, the PC version. The first time I played was with my brother and he walked me through the process, so I had a pretty easy time. A simple way to make it through the night is to find 3 sheep and kill them for their wool. Cut down some blocks from a tree and create some wooden blocks. Then use your crafting table to make a bed (3 wooden blocks across the bottom and 3 wool blocks across that). Once you have a bed make a small cave in the ground, nothing fancy, just effective. You don't need a torch or a door, just wall yourself in with blocks. If you want some light build a furnace and burn some wood, it's faster than finding coal. Also, lay down your bed before you wall yourself in, and you can leave one block open near the top so some light comes in. Just play with it and you will find something that works for you. Hope that helps.

    I read everything I could find, not the least being the wiki, so I was prepared for the night. There are many things you can do for your first night. If you are on dirt, or before a hill, dig a stairway down. Never dig directly down because you never know what's below you. Once you are inside plug the entrance with dirt and wait between seven and ten minutes. Then come out. If you are really in a pinch, leapfrog your way to safety by pressing the spacebar while placing one pile of dirt on top of the one beneath it. You will jump on the placed dirt pile. Repeat until you are out of dirt. You are pretty safe if you are 30 or so blocks (dirt piles) high. Don't look directly at Endermen though. They are the tall black humanoids that teleport from spot to spot carrying blocks of various materials. If you happen to accidentally move your cursor over them, and you are not equipped to fight them with iron armor and weapons or better, and if you have access to a pumpkin, place it on your head and they will ignore you. Whenever I start playing a game, I learn all I can about it. It's a habit of mine. I learned the most important recipes, sword, pickaxe, and of course the crafting table, from the minecraft wiki. It is an excellent site for information on minecraft. It's at and it includes tutorials on how to survive the first day, important recipes, and more. I hope this helps. Have fun playing minecraft.
