The first 500 ticket purchasers will enter a drawing to be a "very important person" at MineCon in November.
MineCon is going to be a gathering of MineCraft fans from all over the world. Markus "Notch" Persson and many other members of his company Mojang will be in attendance to offer stories and details about the building sim, as well as give some details about their other projects. The first MineCon is happening on November 18th and 19th at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. Tickets went on sale today for $99, and the first 500 purchased online get the chance to make their MineCon experience a special one. (You can also buy tickets at the event for $139, in case you hate planning ahead.)
That's right, one of the lucky first 500 ticket holders will be drawn to be a VIP guest of Notch for the "The ULTIMATE Fan Experience." What does the lucky person get? Well:
- your hotel stay during MineCon (for the nights of November 17,18, and 19th)
- VIP seating to Keynotes and Classes
- A meal with Team Mojang
All that's missing is some gambling chips and free drinks. Then again, it's Vegas. Sit down at a table or in front of a slot machine and the alcohol will follow.
What am I talking about? The VIP at MineCon will have more important things to do - like pestering Notch on what is coming down the pipe at Mojang.
If you had Notch's ear, what would you ask for? Buy a ticket to MineCon now and you might get a chance to ask him.
