Bought Scrolls? Don’t forget to gift your free code!

xmas_ripper

 Hey guys,

You might remember this post from the end of last year. Basically, everyone who bought Scrolls before December 19th received a free Scrolls code to give to a buddy. Though lots of you have given your code away, there are still a few that haven’t been redeemed.

I mention this because the codes will only work for the next two weeks. After that they become a meaningless stream of letters and numbers, which is significantly less fun than playing Scrolls with a friend or loved one.

So do the right thing, eh? Log into your Mojang account and give the gift of Scrolls. It’s a very nice thing to do.

Have a great day!

  • Added /clone command to copy large areas to other areas

  • Updated Villager trading!
  • Doors stack!
  • Slime blocks!
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!

  • Added ‘Lock’ (String) NBT tag on most containers.
  • Added an optional entity parameter to /kill (try: /kill @e[type=!Player]
