Map Info:
It's Christmas Eve and you forgot to get your cousin a gift! He wants the book "Minecraft" You must scour the snowy land to find it! Read funny books at the Traveling Merchant's store, go through a wizard library where the walls are only bookshelves! (Even go to the Black Market) This map is meant for peaceful difficulty, but you can choose whatever difficulty you wish.

Single-player: Find the book and get home as fast as possible!

Multi-player: Craft weapons and find the book. Whoever can get to the secret room with the book first wins! Kill anyone you find to try and steal the book!

New Features since the update:
-Expanded multiplayer content
-Hidden "Power Ups"
-Tons more buildings
-A secret sidequest- where you get to choose whether to be good or evil!
-Fun challenges
-A high up railroad
-A secret message written on a map...

1. No breaking into the secret room in your house. This means no punching the sand or planks. It ruins the fun of the map.
2. No leaving the snow biome. Nothing is outside.

And yes, I know it isn't Christmas anymore.

+3 ? It's a nice map, but the one thing I really dislike about it is that I have no idea where to start. This maybe a great adventure puzzle idea, however this has also confused people alone the map. Great Hint systems, pointers are definitely needed in this map.

+4 Akashik13 This map was a lot of fun to wander around in until I found the book. The only thing left to improve is the amount of buildings. (or "natural" wonders)

Did i do this right? i totally missed the market. the first place i found was John’s house, and then the bookstore in the wild. it took the book from there and brought it back home where i broke the sand. is this correct?

Didn't he say "Don't Break The Sand"?
