This official Minecraft book contains collective knowledge of the Survivors - an underground group of Minecraft experts who've been around since the early days of alpha. Written by the Chief - the leader of the group - it contains their most cunning plans and their most ingenious inventions. On the home front, you'll learn what kind of base best suits your needs, what to stock in your arsenal and how to protect your base with imaginative defensive features. Out in the field you'll learn how to stalk your enemies, how to master the art of practical munitions and how to crush any opponent in hand-to-hand combat.
