The way he's done it is quite clever. You only get a few letters from the 99 codes and have to pool your resources with other people to get full codes.

TBH, not sure I care about Minecraft enough to try.

I'll wait for the release :)

GL to those who try though.


i know, thats why i said 2 minutes and not 2 seconds

PirateThom2051d ago

Ah, fair enough. Glad they weren't just all dumped online for first come, first serve.

Yeah haha, good luck with that. The codes are literally:


Some have a single letter mixed in.

May God have mercy upon your soul.

What notch has done is that depending on your IP will depend on what set of letters you get in your codes.

So you'll need 24 other sets of codes just to potentially get 1 of those codes. The thing is, you got to search for the correct 24 codes.

It's an interesting sort of competition :) But TBH i wouldnt be someone who'd dedicate my hours in the day for it :P

They are all used up. Some one posted the list of codes online


theres always someone thats gotta kill the fun

It would be easier to just buy the game, except the game is Minecraft, so don't bother.

I was thinking more along the lines, this game was programmed by this Notch tosspot, so dont bother.
