“Minefaire is all about connecting with your kids through their favorite game. We were determined to create a one-of-a-kind Minecraft experience that ensures children are building valuable learning skills as they play,” says Chad Collins, one of the fathers who founded Minefaire.
Co-Founder Gabe Young adds, “Minefaire is an opportunity for Minecraft players to connect with a live community that includes educators, YouTube celebrities and other passionate players.”
Minecraft is the second-best-selling standalone video game of all time, only outranked by Tetris, with more than 121 million copies sold, according to the game creators.
