Minecraft Social Club

Auckland Explorers is running a trial Minecraft Social Club for its members. We want to see if this is likely to be a good social opportunity and encourage cooperative playing towards a shared goal. We are going to run the club during the Auckland lockdown and then review afterwards to see if it can/should be a permanent edition to our calendar.
  • When: 9.30am to 11am - Sunday mornings (for the rest of November)
  • Cost: Free to Auckland Explorers
This will be a supervised event by our committee on a private Minecraft server owned by Auckland Explorers. Participants will be given clear rules and guidelines to ensure that it is a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
To join, participants need the following.
  • Communications: We will be starting off the session on a Zoom video conference. Children only need access to a microphone and speakers (headphones for example) and free Zoom account. This Zoom will stay open in the background so that chatting can continue throughout the session.
  • Mincecraft Software: We have chosen to use Minecraft Bedrock edition (latest version). This is due to the broad availability of this version across many clients (with a few exceptions, ie. Mac). Also, please update to the latest software to ensure you are compatible.
    We have tested the connection on PC and iPad (Apple iOS). It is expected to also work on Google Android, Linux, Microsoft XBox and Sony Playstation, but have not yet tested them.

Server details will be sent by email the morning of the event, with the server remaining off until such time as everyone is online and briefed. We look forward to seeing you online.
