Minecraft Blockopedia: An Official Minecraft Book from Mojang
Minecraft Blockopedia is THE official guide to Minecraft from Mojang and will be an indispensable asset to guide through Minecraft: the blocks!
The Minecraft Blockopedia’s Official guide is presented extremely elegantly as a hexagonal block form encased in a stylish box which, will make a stylish gift for either an experienced minecrafte or a novice just starting out.
To say Minecraft can be an overwhelming place is very accurate when you first start playing but with the Minecraft blockopedia guide to hand, you have the knowledge and guidance to help you or help your child if they are stuck.
Minecraft Blockopedia will enable you to always know what’s around you and what is under your feet. You will also be given information to show you what options you have at your fingertips. Literally, every single block is featured and includes its location, function, and behaviour.
The guide is 300 pages and is stuffed with facts and images that are grouped into selected groups. This is done by the type of block:
- Naturally generated,
As well as their properties, you will be provided with all the stats on blast resistance, transparency, light emittance and block drops.
Minecraft blockopedia guide also lets you discover the secrets of each block but also gives the factual information about how they behave. To the right there is an image of one of the pages, click on it to enlarge it so you can see the example of how it is describing the element of Ice.
The basic blocks such as dirt, grass, and cobblestone, you will find abundance in the Overworld, however, to find a rarer variety of mineral such as Nether quartz ore, it will mean a trip into the Nether dimension and this is where the guide will come to your aid.
With the Minecraft Blockopedia guide, you are going to survive a lot better while you live a happier and stronger game life.
I suggest the most suitable age for this guide is from 9 years upwards so it can be fully appreciated.
If you want to become an expert in Minecraft then there are other books to go with your collection. I still prefer to read and learn from books.

The Mojang Minecraft books always produce value for money. Each page that introduces a new block is presented with a very well illustrated image that is a full page covering the hexagon shape of the block.
The guide covers every block as mentioned in the introduction too and covers every item from ores to flowers and fences to brewing stands, also covered is Redstone repeater to command blocks.
I think this blockopedia guide is great value for money as it is well presented an has a unique shape with 300 pages of highly informative content that when broken down works out to 7 pence per page, If you think of all the labour and logistics and costs of materials per page I don’t think its bad mark up at all.
I can’t really pick up on anything I do not like about this book, to be honest as it covers all the details you need and is beautifully packaged.
Example of content
One parent wrote a review on Amazon about what she and her child learnt to do from this guide:
“I didn’t know that you could make wool from 4 spider string, making survival easier if you can’t find enough sheep quickly; or that if you arrange correctly, just 4 water blocks can irrigate 320 farmland blocks; or that you can use sugar cane as a breathing tower to explore the ocean depths as it doesn’t let water in.”
If that lady had not had the book her and her child would not be able to learn or master the game as quickly.
It always helps to have a guidebook by your side to refer to when playing Minecraft!
Where to Buy
I have sourced the best prices for this guide and the best price I found was for eBay and that came with free postage, however, this comes straight from the seller.
I also recommend Amazon and although dearer it is with Prime so it is picked and packed at an Amazon warehouse so customer service will be second to none.
eBay UK: £8.99 plus Free Postage
Amazon UK: £19.95 Free Postage and fulfilled by Amazon
Again I found for buyers in the USA that eBay was offering better deals than Amazon and other businesses as businesses tend to sell through Amazon and eBay as well I concluded that these were the deals for parents of the UK and USA
Amazon USA: $25.99
eBay USA: $18.99
