You think you're good at Minecraft? Time to prove it - November is Minecraft month in the ideaLAB, capped by the International Minecraft Hunger Games Tournament! We'll be sending two tributes to compete with players from all over the world - but first you have to survive the playoffs! If fighting for your (virtual) survival isn't your thing, we'll also be learning how to make a Let's Play Minecraft video, holding a build contest (where the winner gets their build printed on our 3D printer), and learning about pixel art.
