Minecraft Board Game

So after noticing that it said here that this Lego board game had been made with Boardmaker, I thought, ooooh, possibilities... downloaded the free trial, and spent an afternoon with Sprout designing ... *drumroll*... a Minecraft boardgame!



We played today as Sprout's current skin, ChimneySwift, AntVenom and CaptainSparklez.

I've put what we made in Googledocs so you can download the board, health and hunger tokens, pickaxe and sword cards, and rules here, and if you go to this site and put your Minecraft username in you can print off a tiny little Minecraft you (just remember to add little tabs round the edge when you're cutting out or it will be difficult to put together), plus go to this page for other skin models to print. (If you want to make your own rules or introduce blocks etc, that site has loads of 3D ones to print and build.) We put the little people's feet into blocks of air drying clay so they stand up. Also we printed off a diamond block and added spots for a dice, but you could print off any block you liked. 

Have fun Minecrafters!

  1. Wow - Thanks.
    Will also go and explore board maker now as DS loves creating games. H e spent ages with DH creating Narniaopoloy after we had read all the books. I bet he would love it.

    1. Ooh sounds awesome!
      Cool, the free trial doesn't seem to have the help files and I didn't find it obvious what to do, but we watched this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-LYf4xWu88 which (among stuff that was pretty obvious) also shows you how to put the game squares on and change their shape and colour, so once you've got that and have found the text button and the import picture option it's pretty easy.

  3. Thanks for providing the download/printable game. I have one question : Your rules say if you land on the diamond sword you pick up a sword card. What do you do with the sword card ? when does it come into action ? I understand you can use your pick axe to get out of missing a turn. But again, what is the purpose of the sword card ? I read the directions and I do not recall when this card can help you. Thanks for your time explaining this to me and thanks again for a great game it looks really cool to play once I understand it fully.

    1. Sorry for the delay in replying! Thanks for pointing that out I hadn't noticed it wasn't written on there, if you have the sword card and land on a Zombie square you can kill it so you don't lose any health.
      Have fun playing!
