The lucky block mod is an exciting and potentially devastating add-on to Minecraft. It adds a golden block, the lucky block to be specific, with a Question mark on all sides and once broken has a chance of spawning something good or something awful or even something completely neutral. The blocks can be crafted by surrounding a dropper with 8 gold ingots. The luck of each block can vary on a scale of -80 to +80. Unlucky blocks are anything below 0 luck and lucky blocks are anything above 0. The fun of the mod is taking a chance on breaking the block and either being rewarded like royalty or utterly devastated to oblivion.
The blocks can also spawn randomly throughout your world. The chance is rare but sometimes they will spawn in structures that will indicate how lucky or unlucky the block might be.
When you do get lucky, the block has a chance of spawning great and/or rare items like a bevy of food and sweets that may or may not contain some poisonous items to sift through.
You may even luck out with a brand new horse clad in armor. This could come in very handy especially if you’ve already run into an unlucky block and need a quick getaway before you decide to risk opening another one!
There’s also the very likely chance of opening a 0 luck block and you end up with a single sponge.
Don’t let this discourage your curiosity, though, because there are so many variables in what could possibly come out of each block. There are some hilariously bizarre outcomes like this tall stack of pigs with a villager on top!
The other side of the coin could end up very destructively to you or any nearby structures so always be prepared. You could end up trapped in an iron cage with mere seconds to escape the lava block directly above your head.
Unlucky blocks can also spawn some deadly enemies like armored zombies or even incredibly strong, flying, undead, horsemen that also happen to really dislike you immediately. This is where you would want to be very prepared before breaking any lucky block by arming yourself and might as well make sure you’re wearing a decent set of armor just in case.
Super lucky blocks may drop lucky potions that can also vary in the good or bad luck bestowed upon breaking them. You might end up in a sudden breakout of fire.
Or you could be granted a bunch of cookies and sugar!
And even the possibility of being splashed with several great potions all at once! This will instantly hit you after the block breaks so the buffs apply right away but since they can also be unlucky there’s a chance for a lot of negative potions to all take effect at once too.
The blocks can also drop lucky swords and bows that are essentially normal in terms of damage amount but they have a chance for dealing lucky hits like extra health or negative potions on your enemies. The bows may even fire TNT or meteors!
The overall purpose of this mod is to give new usage to gold ingots. If you find yourself always stocked with gold but don’t ever use it, this mod is for you. You can now turn that usually weak metal into Lucky Blocks and let fate decide what comes out.
It’s a neat mod for multiplayer servers as well or for making game maps but with how random the blocks behave it can be a dangerous mod for your regular map. It’s recommended to either back up your map or create one specifically for this mod lest you risk wreaking unwanted havoc on your favorite world.
