Just for fun

From Crystal K--

Evyn, showing me around the new castle he built in Minecraft: "And here's the chest where I keep all my heads..."
Me: "Should I be worried that you built a graveyard in your front yard?"
Evyn: "Oh I just did that for fun!"

There's no toilets in Minecraft

From Debbie B--

From 7-9am this morning my son created a mansion (in Minecraft).

Andy: The first floor is a concert room with a stage. The second, third and fourth floor is actually the second floor, and here's why. The second-second floor is a movie theater built on a slant. The second-third floor is a kitchen and guest room. The second-fourth floor is MY ROOM!
Me: So where's your bathroom? People in your concert room will need to go?
Andy: *looks at me with head down and eyes up* It's Minecraft, Mom.

Creating a whole mansion in two hours should have given me a clue to that one.

P.S.
Funny thing - I left out the follow-up conversation we had about what you actually do on toilet in Minecraft. It may not be a good Saturday morning conversation, but it is a typical convo with a 10-year-old boy. LOL

Diamond Rain--the mod, the myth, the legend



Bryce: "Oh. My. Gosh.  I just tapped the ground with a stick and diamonds fell down!!"  Drags his tablet over to me.  "I'll show you!  Here--try it!!  See?  Diamonds!!"

Bryce:  "Oh, no!!  I don't have room for all my diamonds! I need a chest!"

Bryce: "I could easily build a house of diamonds. I have so much diamonds I need a new chest.  Diamond Rain works. Totally. That's why it's called Diamond Rain.  I could do this FOREVER.  Just...diamonds galore!"
 
Bryce, singing: "Diamond rain, diamond rain, diamond raaaaaaain!" Regular voice, "Diamonds are awesome.  The tree mod is also awesome. Pandora's Box is similar to lucky blocks."
Me: ???


Bryce: "Oh, dang. The Pandora's Box doesn't work. I'll have to find another. Oh, good. Golden Iron Rain works."

Minecraft + siblings = funny

Kids are playing in different rooms and yelling back and forth.
Kid 2: "I can't hear you! Can you say it in Minecraft?"

Kid 2, laughing gleefully: "I'm watching you die!!"
Kid 1: "I'm coming for you!!"

B: "You're suicide-ing!" *pause*  Sounding annoyed, "As usual, you survived."

H: How'd you do that?!
B:  It's easy. I have the magic touch.
Me:  In what?
B:  Parkour.
Me:  Only in Minecraft...

B to H:  I'm watching you fall to your death!  HA! You suicided.
Me:  :/

B:  Hey, can I hit you back?  Wait--where'd you go?  You've angered me.  I'm jumping in lava.

Thus ended last night's playing.
