Minecraft is one of the most popular video games on the planet, and has revolutionised the way people experience and think about gaming culture due to its unique distribution system. Though immensely popular with young people, Minecraft has spawned a vast community of players, modders and video bloggers all working together to uncover its secrets.

If you’ve never played Minecraft before, the team at Thinkspace are offering you the chance to try it out in these free, 1 hour sessions.

Despite it’s retro asethetic, the game contains a complex physics system, and even a means to simulate electrical circuitry. Players have used the game to create amazing feats of virtual architecture and even mathematical instruments. In recent years, Minecraft has even begun to enter classrooms, as teacher’s explore it’s potential as a teaching tool.
