    Notch is now discussing to see if he can have a con in vegas... thinking about doing this again as a yearly thing though =3


    I would definitely still come to a local, "mini" Minecraft con in Bellevue. Especially one during the summer. Just like a 1-day meet-up, like meeting in a park or a coffee shop. People could play Minecraft on laptops, or dress up, or just show off any Minecraft-related projects (replicas, papercraft, etc). Something for people who don't like the huge crowds, stuffy rooms, and expensive prices of big conventions. Also, I think a summer date works better for many people, and puts it far enough away from the "official" Minecraft Con in Vegas.
    11/11/2011 in Las Vegas for $90 is just not practical for me.


    Agreed. I think it is just too much and the location isn't convienient at all. I go to Sakura Con in Seattle every year and I pay $50 Dollars.

    Now all we have to do is set up a day really and think of some games. This would probably be best on a saturday as well.

    July.
    I suggest that you make a tree and put a person in it.

    We have thought about this one many times =3 and we also have thought about building forts and such.

    I have a friend who is 13 and his friend who is 12 and they both would absolutely do this so what age groups would like you would sort of allow or, would there be almost no limit?

    P.s. I would suggest July


    There won't be a limit to age groups xD We had old guys come last year and teenagers who were doing a little dance cause they were excited xD

    Put MC textures on a ton of cardboard boxes in a gymnasium or something - Let human nature take over - Take pictures - profit.

    Haha last year we had a discussion to rebuild the park doing this.

    Raiding cardboard boxes from local restaurants and such xD


    You know, this could actually work. You can get literally hundreds of free cardboard boxes from local shops. When my family moved, we got most of our boxes from the local liquor store o_o. It's actually a great source of boxes because the boxes are cubes or near-cubes, while Costco boxes are flatter and don't have lids. Compare: http://www.swankpad.org/blather//uploads/2007/04/img_1697.jpg vs http://www.thedigeratilife.com/images/costco-store-2.jpg. Once you've got the boxes, all you have to do is either have to spray-paint them or print out textures and glue it on. If each person can bring 5 or 10 boxes we could get some serious building going on.

    But then the question is, what do you do with the boxes? My first thought was spleef, but that could be problematic with carboard boxes and the harsh fall damage of real-life. My second though was box fort capture-the-flag! Divide everyone into two teams, build two box forts, and hide a flag in each of them. Then, play it like regular capture the flag, but with a few special rules:
      [*:1u46c2gd]You can steal/move/build blocks from the other team's fort, but you can only carry 1 block at a time. Also, no throwing blocks.
      [*:1u46c2gd]Anyone dressed as a creeper (or wearing green?) is a creeper. Creepers can't take the flag or move blocks, since they have no arms. Creepers can run into enemy territory and then explode (jump and fall over), and anyone within 5 or 6 feet has to fly back as if hit by an explosion. They have to lie there for 10 seconds before getting back up. The exploded creeper goes to jail as if they were tagged.
      [*:1u46c2gd]Cake blocks! If you bring the cake into the enemy jail, you get to rescue everyone instead of 1 person. But, cake blocks can also be stolen and moved the same way as normal blocks.

    Other things to do with the blocks: free build, building contest



    This sounds amazing.

    I hope to see everyone here! Or everyone that can at least make it! If you want to host something where you are just let me know!~

    Question for EVERYONE

    July OR August?

    Perhaps there could be workshops for people wanting to plan large projects and talk about tips and tools used for such

    Sadly I won't be able to do that yet... Next year? I hope to do classes and such next year... That would be amazing. They also have degrees in this area too.

    I'd love if it were in Bellevue or Seattle again, I have about 5 friends who really want to go, and a very willing driver. It'd be really cool if Notch shows up again, too :smile.gif:

    We are doing it again in Bellevue! :biggrin.gif: But I don't think Notch will show up again... He came last year cause Valve wanted to meet him! They paid for everything for him to visit them (1st class business ticket, hotel, presents and such!)

    I just had Kawaii Kon, which was a blast, now what's Minecraft Con like?

    I just went to sakura con Which was amazing :"D

    Minecraft con isn't that amazing xD This would only be a second year (and Kinda like a test I guess?). Last year in August Markus (Notch) was in Bellevue and wanted to host a coffee shop meetup and over 100 people came to the park where we met him xD And we decided to do this every year (meeting up) in the summer. Right now we are trying to get activities and such and get people involved. THIS won't have notch there this year but it would be cool if we could get him to come again in the future :biggrin.gif: But last year people were sooo... Creative? It was a lot of fun :biggrin.gif:

    I wish there was a way to turn the critters off some times. I will be working on some building project , and along comes a damn cow. and i think to my self "The game world is 8 times the surface of the earth, and you got to stand right there, and go MOOO." and the other day a cow pushed me off a cliff. cows are not the one who should be tipping. thats not how cow tipping works. i think the cows are out to get me.

    It's awesome when they die :biggrin.gif: Hook them with the fishing pole and watch them fly~! =3

    A-a-a-a-AVATAR THEFT

    /quakevoice

    I pirated minecraft, then bought it afterwards, there's nothing Notch can do to stop that.


    Can I steal your avatar too? =3

    yeah but then there are those people who DON'T do that... which is annoying cause when sales slow he will stop developing and will move on ='3

    We can get together into a Wi-fi zone, and play SMP in a server in which we are all in. I'd do that, even though I live in South America


    Yeah it was real cool though how we got everyone together last time and I know many still want to do this again this year! It would be cool if we got a group to do that while we are having the con! Cosplay was pretty sick last year though and I know many of these people have better ideas on what they want to do.
