Minecraft is a sensation that has swept across the internet and even onto gaming consoles in the past year or so. It’s a giant sandbox game with no real discernible “goal” that most gamers would regularly look for, so sometimes a little help is in order. The most common question for people just getting started out in Minecraft is simply What do I do?
