The bible of the blocks of Minecraft: Blockopedia.

Those who know Minecraft will know of our excitement to have this book in our hands: The blockopedia of Minecraft can be considered as the bible of the blocks of the famous game. The best and most complete compilation that exists and also updated this year.

Thanks to Harperkids that regularly publishes titles related to Minecraft, is that we enjoy this great tome of more than 300 pages of information related to all the blocks that exist.

In this latest revision, which has just been published in November of this year, more than 200 new blocks have been added, since Minefrat is a game in constant development and growth and characters, blocks, worlds, weapons, etc. always arise.



What will we find in this Blockopedia?.

The right question would be what will we not find? Absolutely all the blocks of the game are cataloged in the blockopedia and classified into 6 categories: Blocks of the world, productive, refined, useful, redstone and diverse.

For those who do not know, the Minecraft world is made up of pixels or “squares” and blocks are a fundamental part.
A block is the basic unit of the structure of a Minecraft world, which can be placed or broken to serve as a resource and material.
The blocks have polygonal shapes, and fulfill different roles depending on their type.


Blocks of the world.

You could say that in this category enter all the basic blocks of the game with which you start the adventure and that will ask you to continue and be able to build and manufacture weapons or utensils: wood, stone, water, fire, sand …

Productive blocks.

All blocks that imitate minerals, vegetables, plants, shrubs, trunks, etc. are considered productive. All of them are productive to feed the characters or to produce something they need.

Refined blocks.

Starting from the basic blocks of the world, we arrive at the refined blocks, which are the ones that arise from the first. Using objects such as furnaces and through melting, firing, combustion or smelting, these glass panel blocks, stone stairs, planks, slabs, wool …

Useful blocks.

In this section you will find all the blocks that have a utility and function in the day to day of Minecraft such as stairs, torches, furniture, doors and fences, flashlights, lighthouses, etc.

Redstone blocks.

I’ve had to ask my 10-year-old expert who sums me up what redstone is and for us to understand everything, it’s like an energy source or a driver. Every Minecraft mechanism, button, trap or gadget needs redstone to work.
In this section we will see those objects and devices, in addition to redstone dust, levers, chests, traps, etc.

Diverse blocks.

Finally there is the category of diverse blocks that I suppose is the place where they put all the blocks that do not fit into previous categories. Here we can find carpets, pots, turtle eggs or blocks of light.

What is this book for?

Both the most loving and experienced Minecraft players and the most novice can find this guide or Blockopedia very useful. Minecraft is mainly made up of blocks and mobs, so having such a glossary of blocks in detail is a great help for the game.

On each page we will find information boxes about the different blocks and a series of more extensive descriptions, as well as the image of the block in question.

For example, the data hexagon summarizes at a glance using icons the main characteristics of the blocks to be able to make a quick query or comparison.


In this hexagon appear the icons that detail transparency, luminosity, renewability, explosive resistance, hardness, flammability and silky touch. Any quality that the block does not have appears unshaded.

A black box next to the name will indicate where that block is, regardless of whether it is in some space or has to be manufactured.


Other information included in each one is that of references to other pages that relate to the current one, to complete the information to the maximum. For example, if that block is used in conjunction with another for a recipe or if it is generated with another, it refers us to those pages optionally.

And finally, although it is not something that we will see on all pages, there is a box of recipes that will indicate what is necessary to manufacture that block that we are seeing. Hence, this information does not appear in all, because it appears only in those that can be manufactured.


Obviously, this Blockopedia is a book that every Minecraft lover wants to have. Especially for players in survival mode or who play online in competitive mode.
Knowing each block of the game, its usefulness, transformations, etc. provides some advantages in the game and in its pages you will find some extra tips.

It should be noted that the binding is wonderful and of great quality. Something to thank in a book of this weight and size that needs resistant covers.

To make a suggestion, they should check well some block that does not appear as the sculk, something rare, since this block is already a couple of years old, at least.
And I also have to make a request made by my son, who would like a Mobpedia. That is, a book like this, but with all the monsters, beings and creatures of the game (called mobs).
