Does anyone play Minecraft on a Mac?

    I'm interested in getting Minecraft, but was wondering if anyone here plays it on a Macbook? I know it can be played, but I was wondering if it's a pain in the hole considering there's no right-click button on some (including the one I have access to)? Is it just as easy to use with Minecraft?

    No, but from what I've read online, the Ctrl+Click = right-click trick still works in Minecraft. Or you could buy a cheap 2-button USB mouse ... ;)

    From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch’.

    I was thinking the Ctrl (or CMD, I think it is) + click would work, was sorta wondering if it'd get in the way of the flow. But that's a good point about the USB mouse, thank you! :D

    I played it on my MacBook Pro while I was away for a few months. I just bought a cheap mouse and it was grand.

    You don't need to buy a two button mouse to right click with a mac mouse. Just go to system preferences and set it up to have a secondary mouse button on the right hand side.

    Also you're playing on a Macbook so why not go into the touchpad settings and set up a two finger tap right click? As far as I remember it's a little annoying when you might need to right click and hold but it is manageable! :)

    Edit: If you're playing on your lap be careful not to burn your leg off
