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.
