In less than 24 hours, early birds like us will be registering for MineCon 2015 and we can't wait to see what goodies Mojang has in store for us.
With Microsoft's acquisition of Mojang, we are hoping for a fresh infusion of capital, creativity, activities, and technology (HoloLens demonstrations?) with this year's convention. We are especially excited to see if Mojang keeps with tradition, and gives its attendees a mystery goodie bag that will surpass the last convention!
Let's review what we each of us acquired from the last MineCon convention:
A Minecon attendance bracelet that many of you are still wearing to this day (yeah, you know who you are). A Minecon drawstring backpack with hidden treasures like a Minecon attendee badge and lanyard. Several Minecraft paper craft characters, Qcraft stickers from Google...some were lucky to get free Qcraft shirts too. A Minecon schedule & map (more like a treasure map of all the active panels with our favorite YouTube celebrities). A free Minecon 2013 cape for your PC avatar and a Minecon 2013 cape for your Xbox avatar (sweet, two capes in one convention). A Minecraft realms 3D card with a free trial offer along with a diamond deposit scavenger hunt activities card. A collectable Minecon 2013 pin (1 of 4), you had to purchase the other three for the complete set, and several other scratch-n-win cards and stickers. Last but not least, Minecon night at Islands of Adventure (of course this wasn't in the good bag, nor was the PC Avatar cape, but they are worth mentioning).
Be sure to stay tuned as we hopefully acquire and review the contents of MineCon 2015's goody bags!
