The Top Ten

Play Hunger Games
I wish they would make a hunger games for pocket edition.
I always do this after I get home from work! It is awesome. Especially when you win!
What is not better than the hunger games? When you play this you never get bored. Except from when people glitch and cheat!
[Newest]They made hunger games on pocket edition in 2013 so watch the videos

2Build a Lifesize Replica of Your House
Sounds like I could do it and show my family
Amazing idea, this is one of the reasons I started playing minecraft and it turned out great I think it's something that anyone who plays minecraft should try out.
That must be a really cool thing to do, literally you could live minecraft! I want to show my Family!
[Newest]I've done this before! It's a challenge but that is what I like about it. It gives me something to build! 🏡

3Build a Minecraft Kingdom
I've tried doing this myself and I kept on adding in things and now it looks great because I have a gigantic castle and a replica of the olympic stadium
Oh and also loads and loads of secret underground bases. It looks really cool from a birds eye view Thanks for the suggestion
Come on, A Minecraft Kingdom would be amazing! With the streets filled with villagers and then the outskirts all having farms with pigs and chickens and wheat. The roads leading up to the castle where steve dwells. It could be awesome guys.
I am in the process of making a kingdom, and I've been at it for 2 WHOLE years! DEFINITELY make a Minecraft Kingdom! If you want to be EXTRA fancy, add some secret rooms behind paintings, and maybe build a secret base!
[Newest]Takes so long but worth the take

4Build a Volcano
Okey this would be cool. I mean none of you out there can't agree that a volcanoe's lava pooring out of it and burning a village full of villagers wouldn't be funny!
It is so fun making one of them
When I was building the volcano I noticed that it looked like a really cool idea to build it so I took your advice and built it. Thanks for the idea again. It really made my kingdom look much cooler. Thanks again for the suggestion
[Newest]I think it's really cool

5Create a Roller Coaster
Roller Coasters are literally the best thing to build on Minecraft if you want to build a awesome thing! I have one that drops you in the end and you ride into the portal back to the overworld! IT'S awesome!
I have built them before in the nether and the end and it went all through the city I built.
My sister only builds roller coasters, They are the stupidest things, she had this one and she called it outer space, it was just rails on a square looking at single blocks.
[Newest]My roller coaster is half finished

6Have a War
Come on! What is more awesome than blasting a guy with an enchanted bow, and watching him stagger blind and swearing to his house pool to put out the fire engulfing him, now is there?
I love this, I always divide the two or more sides by the color of the helmet. The best it to make forts and traps then use those to help your cause. Especially tunnel wars, they can be the best. Using underground is so beneficial.
This makes use of the complex enchantment system, and what is more fun that blowing up houses? Nothing. Nothing at all.
[Newest]Whats more fun then killing with swords on Minecraft players

7Build a Secret Underwater Glass Hideout
It will be awesome
I tried this once, it was awsemome... For 5 seconds; it flooded, still cool in that time


Because that is cool
[Newest]I tried it when I was playing the boring pocket lite

8Build TNT Pyramid Then Blow It Up
Happens to every creative world I make
It's fun to do you get to make a giant crater in the world
I covered a village in TNT and blew it up! (Recorded it all! )

9Troll Your Best Friend
It actually can be fun!
Laugh out loud its funny
LOL sounds awesome I'm not a creative person though so I just look on YouTube for tutorials on how to make "trolling machines"

10Build a Big Space Ship
This would be a great idea I enjoy it I am an active person but I would definitely spend my day inside to build something so massive and fun this has given me a reason to play the game again thanks.
This is relly hard to do people take months doing stuff like this
I've been trying to do this for a long time... Still not finished!
[Newest]Guys once you're done building the spaceship, look up Pyxis mod it's a mod that allows you to fly or drive anything, so once you're done building the ship you can fly it!

The Contenders

11Defeat Wither while riding the Ender dragon

13Build a 50x50 Castle With 3 or More Floors
I think that would be awesome to build

Because castles are usually from the past you can make up your own history about them and it works for pocket edition or Xbox and computer
[Newest]Oh, please... I built a 200x350 castle with at LEAST 4 floors!

14Replicate the Olympic Stadium
I'd totally want to do THAT! I mean who wouldn't and there are so many to choose from. I'm gonna go on google and search which one to do!

15Defeat Herobrine
Herobrine's going down.(Anyone else stupid enough to do this, xbox live name Werewolf3700)
I would do this if he was real and he was never real they put the remove herobrine thing so that people would stop photo shopping


That would be so cool! This should be ranked higher!
[Newest]Good bye hero brine! Lol

16Build a Sky City
I will most definitely have to try doing that in my Let's play series.
Took me a long time but it looks brilliant
How cool it would be to have a sky city
[Newest]I've done that. It's awesome, with all this free empty space. There's also the marvelous views from the city. Plus, it's a city in the sky! What else do to have to say?

27Dig a 20x20 Hole to the Middle of the Earth
