We are excited to announce that all MineCon attendees will receive Scrolls and Cobalt alpha codes as soon as they are released! (Woo, that's a value of many many dollars!)


If you haven't already purchased your ticket and hotel room at Mandalay Bay, what are you waiting for? Head on over to and get everything reserved for an amazing weekend! Early bird pricing for MineCon and Mandalay Bay won't be around for much longer, book today.

Also, We've got a consultant!

We're quite bad at keeping track of who does what when because of whom, so we got a consultant to help us set up some tracking and metrics and stuff. The idea being that if we know how people use our websites, we can improve it more efficiently.
He created a nifty script for generating short urls for when we link to our websites, so the clicks can be measured and analysed, and figure out which channels and which campaigns have the best impact. I have no idea how it works, I'm assuming magic.

But it sure is fancy looking.. so I thought I'd test it, with your help.

1) Read ONE of the sentences below, chosen randomly.
2) Do not read the other.
3) Click the link after the sentence you chose.
4) Carry on as normal.

Sentence 1:
This is not reverse psychology ->

Sentence 2:
You should buy two gift codes, for science ->

Editor's Note:

Minecraft 1.8 has been leaked! the URL is This is 100% legitimate (from the main site, no less!), and not any form of phishing. Notch has stated he does not mind that people have found it, so feel free to download the pre-release beta of Minecraft Beta: The Adventure Update!!! --Kizzycocoa

Lol you're ******** me. $100 for a minecraft convention XD. I could save up and go to pax (or better yet comic con) next year and get thrice the information and swag. If you drop the price to $50 I'll go. I live about a stones throw away from vegas.
