MINECRAFT Redstone Handbook

Updated on August 15, 2014

Are you a fan of the Minecraft phenomenon? Is your son or daughter the Minecraft fanatic in your household? If so, then you need look no further... Here's everything you need to know to be able to connect to all those amazing possibilities of redstone. So what is Redstone I hear you ask... well, in simple terms a redstone circuit is a structure that can be built to activate or control mechanisms.

But what is Minecraft? - I hear you ask... Well, basically it's a computer game where you break or place textured blocks or cubes to create structures. It is also a game of survival as you attempt to accrue resources to aid you in defending yourself against monsters intent on destroying you.

This hand book gives you all the step-by-step instructions from basic mining and logic circuits right through to the more advanced mechanics. It will enable you to build arrow launchers and redstone traps. I can already hear the uninitiated among you already getting your heads into a spin - but really, it is not that difficult - lets face it, there are millions of kids and adults out there who are already avid minecraft fans and to whom these aspects of the game are almost second nature.

So now you don't need to stress when your child asks about Minecraft (I know I did at first when my granddaughter started showing me her minecraft game and began asking about various aspects of the game). This handbook is especially written with kids of age 8 to 12 years in mind - but to be honest, I found it an enlightening read - and I can now hold my own when discussing this aspect of the the game with them.

The handbook is divided into 3 sections. The first will bring its reader up to speed with the basics of redstone. The second shows the reader how to use this knowledge to complete challenges. The third section showcases some of the Minecraft community creations out there and how they work.

Don't be left in the dark about this incredibly popular new gaming sensation.

      I recently chaired the spring book fair at our school and the Minecraft Essential Handbook was the #1 selling book at our fair. I actually ended up having to back order more copies and still wasn't enough to meet demand.
