The Some Awesome Minecraft group is hosting a SkyBlock Challenge for the members of our server. We’ve made a custom multiplayer SkyBlock map so every team will have their own island to work on. The challenge will take place Jan 6th through Jan 20th.
What is SkyBlock?
SkyBlock is a floating island survival map created by Noobcrew. You’ll start off with the most basic supplies and must find a way to survive and complete all the challenges possible (and they are possible). We will be using the 1.0 version for this challenge with some additional goals made possible with the updates made since the map was created.
Teams can be 1-3 players (each person on their team will have a personalized command block directing them to their SkyBlock)
Note: some achievements must be met per each player on your team. Example: 3 team members means 3 beds, full set of tools for each player otherwise only one person on the team wins the prize. The team may choose whom.
Do not purposely jump off the island to regenerate your health.
Do not make a bridge to the mainland or to neighboring islands (bridging to a neighbor’s island is grounds for disqualification).
If you somehow appear on another players island, jump off their island to go back to spawn.
Do not build more than 45 blocks from your own island (to avoid crossing into a neighbor’s territory)
There are anvils and an enchanting table with bookcases available at spawn for community use. Do not remove any of these from spawn. Doing so will result in disqualification.
To ensure that everyone receives the same amount of materials to begin the challenge with, instead of a pre-grown tree on each island there will be 6 logs and 1 sapling in each chest.
Players must be whitelisted and assigned to a Skyblock.
Note: Keep Inventory is enabled
1st Place: Steam games from the community gift library retail value of $30 to distributed among the team. Each member of the team receives one in game item of their choice.

3rd Place: Steam games from the community gift library retail value of $10 to distributed among the team. Each member of the team receives one in game item of their choice.
