Members of the @GamingEDUs gang gathered on New Year’s Eve for the Seventh Annual Sign of the Times party. This year our festivities took place on the GumbyCraft server on an island in the middle of a newly-located Aquatic Updatecoral reef.
In addition to Jack’s Snack Shack, this year’s event featured a Trident Toss with prismarine prizes, a Battle with the Drowned arena, a Dolphin & Squid Aquarium (later populated with tropical fish), carnies, numerous shipwrecks, and for the kiddies, a Fish Pond. We also enjoyed a wonderfully exciting Dophin Jump Sea Steeplechase race, A recently restored Good Ship Blockhead was also available onsite for tours.
With the arrival of the New Year comes the annual @GamingEDUsSign of the Times (SOTT) event.
Our Minecraft worlds have continued to evolve since our first annual event seven years ago. With the arrival of v1.13 The Aquatic Update, JackIsJanx, PhisaGrim and GumbyBlockhead have been working on yet another build sign playground for this year’s event.
Join us on New Years eve, starting at 7pm on the GumbyCraft server for lots of fun, fellowship, and food (Jack’s Snack Shack is back!), as well as our fantastic fireworks!
The sign for the 6th annual Sign of the Times party has been constructed, and the fireworks launchers have been installed. Will you be joining us on New Year’s Eve for our yearly tradition?
JackIsJanx and PhisaGrim and MikeyTyrant were all buzzing around the new Rainbow Island Amusement Park yesterday getting things in order.
Some of the diversions on Rainbow Island include:
Rainbow Pathway Race
The p00ter and Janx Improv Theatre
The Giant Cage of Parrots
Jack’s Snack Shack (and also a “Mysterious Donut”)
Jack and Phisa had started construction of the various amusements several months ago, and had pre-laid out the site for the sign. It was a simple matter for Mikey and I to drop and set up the sign. I’ve been exploring with cement on the nearby mainland for a while, but the action this evening will be fully focused on Rainbow Island. (We may pop out to visit the previous 5 signs scattered throughout the various reaches of the GamingEDUs survival world that has been migrated from the Professional Play Server.)
Please drop by and join us! The official events will take place between 7-9 pm ET, but things will be going on this afternoon on the server as well in preparation! Hope to see you there!
