Gamepedia MineCon Recap

Gamepedia recently spent the weekend down in sunny Orlando Florida at the 2013 Minecon event. We spent our time running all kinds of fun activities at our booth, connecting with all the awesome Minecraft Wiki and Gamepedia fans in attendance, and of course, checking out all of the super-cool Minecraft stuff that was everywhere! Check out this great video with all the highlights from our booth, including the drawing for the Diamond Deposit scavenger hunt where one lucky winner brought home a Minecraft-skinned Alienware Aurora Gaming PC!

All weekend long we were running the Quick Build Competition, a series of short head-to-head matches where we challenged people to build an object in just three minutes! Check back soon for lots of great pictures of all the great builds! One of our other favorite things was the huge number of hand-made statues around the expo hall, which ranged from life-size to the larger than life Steve and Dog statue! There were also many other carefully crafted pieces of fan art including creepers, swords, full suits of armor, and not to mention plenty of great costumes! 


We also had a great turnout to the Minecraft Wiki Panel on Sunday morning. More than 100 people came to hear about this great project, the largest on Gamepedia, and came with plenty of excellent questions. We made sure to send home as many people as we could with our special-edition Minecraft Wiki t-shirts too! All in all it was an excellent weekend and I know we'll be looking forward to next year's event!
