Thinkspace is calling for people aged 7+ to be part of a massive Minecraft building collaboration to create worlds inspired by the classic games featured in the Powerhouse Museum’s Game Masters exhibition. It will be, according to Thinkspace, a fully supervised and moderated Minecraft game-jam called Minecraft100.
Up to 100 players will “craft together in the Powerhouse Museum’s unique Minecraft mod, ‘Powercraft’, featuring over 50 unique elements, blocks, textures and items”.
The opening weekend is 5-6 April when it runs from 10:30am-4:00pm; then it’s on throughout the School holidays running from 10:00am-3:30pm. The cost is generally $100, with a $10 discount for members.
It might appear that for a lot of kids this would be a bit of a busmans’s holiday – take a break from playing Minecraft to go an play Minicraft: But Thinkspace always does great stuff and so I’d anticipate this will be a lot of quality fun for those involved. And right now, there, sadly, don’t seem to be any of the more usual School holiday programs running at Thinkspace, so this is the only game in town.
