Game of Thrones’ King’s Landing meticulously re-created in Minecraft

GamesBeat has reported on some of our favorite Minecraft creations to date, but none of them took over 100 builders to make. That’s what the team at Westeroscraft is claiming was required for their painstaking re-creation of King’s Landing from A Song of Ice and Fire (or Game of Thrones for the literary-challenged).

But King’s Landing is just a taste of things to come as pizzainacup states that a Minecraft iteration of the entire Westeros content is about 70 percent complete, with the continent of Essos planned “one day.” You can view the map live here (when Reddit isn’t crashing the server) to see the ongoing progress.
