Duncan Geere Mojang avatar.png Bricks have the same blast resistance as other types of stone, so they're pretty good for making your house creeper-proof. There are stairs and slabs made of brick, but the block's other crafting use is in making banners - adding bricks and dye to a banner will create a checkerboard background colour, which the game calls "Masoned". It's a great choice for a flag for a tribe of builders.

History[edit | edit source]

Classic
0.26 SURVIVAL TEST 9 Brick (Block)-Pre Alpha 1.0.11.png Added bricks.
Infdev
February 27, 2010 For a brief time, huge brick pyramids were a rare structure that could generate. See 1, 2 and 3 to see the pyramids and exploration of them. The pyramids were completely solid; they had no inside rooms. A strange quality about these pyramids was that if one dug under it, a layer of dirt and stone extended under the pyramid. This suggests it generated right on top of the terrain instead of being a complete pyramid with the bottom parts underground. Pyramids were removed in later versions of Infdev.
