Minecraft is a sandbox game, which means there aren’t any rules for how you play. In a sandbox, you can build a sandcastle, dig a road, or throw a bunch of sand around. In Minecraft, you can build a massive railway system, make friends with wolves and ocelots, explore the ocean, or kill an army of zombies. Or do it all. There’s no goal that you must achieve, but if you like goals, Minecraft has a few you can set your sights on. It’s up to you to decide how to play, and you can mix it up any way you want to.
