What is griefing

What is ‘griefing’?

Whilst researching Anti Bullying Week, I came across the word ‘griefing’. Not being a term I was at all familiar with, I decided to dig a little deeper…

It turns out that ‘griefing’ is a type of bullying that can occur in multiplayer games of Minecraft. Basically, it is where someone destroys your buildings, sets traps or steals your items just to be mean.

BBC Newsround have put together a video where Minecraft Youtuber Stampy gives top tips on how to avoid and stop griefing, which can be viewed here.
