I’ve been trying to find games that me and my husband can play together briefly between family life. It has to be something that’s relatively safe for us to back out of, something we can stop playing almost instantly, and something that’s relaxed and not too intensive. Very few games fall under these categories. We’re gamers at heart and we’re determined to make it work, even with our 3 year old and 1 year old. Minecraft has always been a game we enjoy together, and recently we returned to a vanilla server with a few friends – but it left us wanting something more. We started browsing through the modded server packs and came across one called RAD (Roguelike Adventures Dungeons). This pack has quickly become one of my favourites for a number of reasons.

It lets you feel like an adventurer. You start with picking a class, you get a blueprint for a house (which biome specific choices), and you have an involved quest book that gives directions on where to go if you don’t want to be knee deep in the sandbox. There are dimensions to travel to, and villages and dungeons to explore.

I love packs like this. They make the game fun and interesting without me having to know the ins and outs of minecraft. I can feel accomplished through exploring, and that’s lovely.

What are some of your favourite mod packs? Let me know in comments and as always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
