In the multimedia e-book GIFT, the world of the book is enhanced with music, video, art, and spooky text events, all designed to immerse the reader in the story of four friends who must work together to untangle a ghostly mystery. Now there's another way to experience the story: through the magic of Minecraft. In this specially commissioned map, based on the world of the book and designed by the shadowy Minecraft map mastermind known only as Vechs, the player must conquer the environment and battle bad guys to locate and retrieve special blocks in order to win the game.
The main objective of this map is to find special blocks in order to complete the Gift Monument. Throughout the map, which is based on the world of the book GIFT, there are 16 colors of wool blocks to find, plus three more blocks of iron, gold, and diamond. You must place each of the requested blocks in the appropriate slot on the Gift Monument.
