This category is for all the blocks in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.

Blocks are the basic units of structure in Minecraft, and are essential to the game play. Together, they build up the in-game environment, and can be mined and utilized in various fashions. There are 153 different blocks (PC version..less on Xbox).

The face of a block is 16×16 pixels, and each block is proportionately one cubic meter. Most blocks are static, although water, lava, portal, and fire blocks have a shifting pattern for each face.


The confusing part to some players is that some "blocks" do not appear in a cube shape (e.g. flowers, torches, fences, etc.). However, they still utilize the full 16×16×16 pixels of space.
