There are certain things in Minecraft that are only available in the PC version. A local science-based play facility called Einstein’s Workshop has a computer lab where you can connect together and play. Our library has an awesome free pass. It took about four visits to learn how to navigate the keyboard and mouse controls (my boys are great with both, but learning the right keys for the game took a while), but finally we accomplished what we had set out to do – tame and ride a horse! Conor even knew how to NAME the d@#n thing, thanks to endless hours of watching people play Minecraft on YouTube!
We managed this feat back in January. Yesterday we brought some friends to the workshop who had never played Minecraft… I think they were hooked!
