Chapter 4. Getting Started

MINECRAFT IS VERY EASY to purchase. You can buy it online from the Mojang website, or you can go directly to Minecraft.net and buy it there (both end up in the same place, but the Minecraft.net route eliminates several steps). Alternatively, you can buy a gift card, available at many retailers, and then use it to purchase your game. You can also buy a Minecraft account for another person and have it emailed to them, or it can be sent to you so you can gift it directly (Figure 4.1). We’ll walk through the entire process.
