Minecraft is fundamentally an extremely simple game at heart, with rudimentary crafting and building mechanics that could even be compared to resemble classic lego block building. Content and lore wise, the game was very basic in its debut back in 2009 featuring very few blocks, mobs, items and crafting recipes present in the game. As the game matured however, a huge amount of content has been added non-stop. Even to this day, the game is consistently receiving thoughtful updates full of new surprises.
Although the core game mechanics were not and never have been set out to be an intellectual challenge for the player, some newcomers and old minecrafters who have skipped updates can find difficulty in navigating the environment or learning things essential for correct progression in the game, such as crafting recipes on their own.
The difficulties faced are neither uncommon nor without good reason. Many of the Minecraft recipes for example, are not shown in the game to players on demand in many prior versions of the game. Of course, these recipes are not either known naturally by newer players; thereby making guides like the ones we offer some of the best places to initially learn about the game.
