Build your own Minion! Minecraft Designs

Hi guys! As promised in our last video, here are the designs we based our Minecraft Minion Zone on, if you want to give it a try building your own Minecraft Minion.

We picked these ideas / designs up from Pinterest – you can search for Minecraft designs, but can also use ones for Hama beads or even cross-stitch patterns, as they all use a grid to make the picture, which makes it really easyย  for counting the blocks and building in Minecraft.

The designs we used in the video are:


You can see that some of the images have website names on where you can get other templates / designs like these if you want to search for them.

In the video, you will see that we’ve kept our designs pretty simple and based of these pictures, but if you wanted to you could make the Minion faces into 3D block heads, like you get in Minecraft, just by continuing the build out in a cube shape. Here are a couple of AMAZING images of Minecraft Minions we found when we were searching for designs! Definitely something for us to try in the future, but I bet these took longer than 20 minutes to build! ๐Ÿ˜€

Clash Royale – Balance Update June 2017

Clash Royale

As you’ll see from the video we’ll be posting this week, Hopper and I have been loving playing Clash Royale recently. Today, the game’s creators – Supercell – are releasing an update to the game that changes some of the powers of the existing cards… This happens from time to time, Supercell say it’s based on feedback from the players, but today’s changes are pretty big and look like they’ll take down some of the most popular Clash Royale cards.

You can read the full release from Supercell here on their blogpost:

The ones that Hopper and I have and use a lot, which will be affected are:

The Tornado – duration will go from 3sec down to 2.5sec – this is a great card for holding back a mob of attackers to give you chance to get some defence in place, or for your towers to target them whilst they’re stuck in the vortex. It sounds like it will still be effective, but only against some of the weaker mobs groups like skeletons and goblins – to get some decent effects from it you’ll need to combine it with an attacker like a Wizard or Executioner – or maybe a Rocket!

The Log, which is a neat little defence item that rolls over your opponentsย  team and flattens them will have a shorter range: down to 11.1 from 11.6.

One of my favourites, the Goblin Gang will now have only 2 Spear Goblins instead of 3… I think this will make a real difference and wonder if they’ll end up dropping out of my regular deck…?

Some cards are being increased in the update, which include the Inferno Dragon getting a 7% hitpoints increase as well as a faster re-targeting, which isn’t too wrong – they often seemed to go down without much of a fight.


What do you think of the changes, are they too much or about right? The change comes in today, so bye-bye Mister Goblin, maybe three was a crowd…

10 million views in week!!

That’s what this Harry Potter origin film trailer has picked up since it came out last week – and we got pretty excited when we saw that they would be making a prequel film for the Harry Potter story, looking at Voldemort – or Tom Marvolo Riddle – as a young boy and how he became the Dark Lord.

You can check out official trailer here:

Apparently, the idea for the movie has come from fans, who made a fan-trailer in the first instance, which has now been agreed by Warner Bros to expand into a full feature film… Due in 2018, the main reason Gianmaria Pezzato and co-director Stefano Prestia have got the go ahead was because they are making the film for no profit and will release it for free on YouTube.

The idea came from a re-reading the sixth book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, where the pair found themselves with several questions. There are clues in the book that have inspired their ideas, but as with most book to screen adaptations not all could be explored in the main movies. The content of the trailer also suggests that it might draw on details from the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child which is currently running on the London stage.

So, what do you think of a film will tell the story of the rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter ever existed? Hopper and I were pretty excited when we saw this and we loved Fantastic Beasts from the wizarding world of JK Rowling… We can’t wait for more!

Maker’s Spleef aka ‘Arrow Fail’ (Tried and Tested #9)

It’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry for the lack of videos, but laptop gave up and it’s taken a while to get up and running again… hopefully, we’ll be caught up soon and have some fun new videos to watch and games for you to try out.

On that note, take a look at the latest Minecraft Realms minigame we’ve been playing – Maker’s Spleef!

“What is a ‘spleef’?” You might ask… well, I had to anyway…

A spleef is a game where you beat your opponent by knocking out the blocks underneath them and send them to their doom! Or in this case, drop them on to turquoise wool – it is apparently, very strange and dangerous wool that kills you in Minecraft.

Melvis really doesn’t do so well when it comes to the arrow round – and the ‘insane’ mode is truly bonkers, we couldn’t work out what was happening except that we kept dying. So, check out the latest video and let us know whether you think you would make better ‘spleefers’ than we did! ๐Ÿ™‚
