mine chest beyond the portal november december 2017 box

Mine Chest is a subscription service that delivers official and exclusive Minecraft items every other month! And it’s now official, Mine Chest is my nine-year-old son’s favorite subscription box! Effective January of this year, Mine Chest merged with Loot Crate, and they now offer a bi-monthly box filled with Mojang officially licensed Minecraft swag.

Mine Chest November/December 2017 Review

This month’s theme is Beyond the PORTAL! Ooooo, mysterious! No, it’s not a bad picture, the front of every postcard they send is a super cool hologram! The themes every shipment seem to center around a different “biome” usually.

The info card included is a cryptic postcard with hints as to what everything inside the box is. Fun!

Exclusive Minecraft Tee modeled

Exclusive Minecraft Tee – Estimated Value $15

Possibly my favorite thing about our Mine Chest subscription is having my son explain to me what the tee shirt depicts. This month it’s an Enderman! I have a feeling they are the bad guys, but my son is telling me they’re kind of neutral? Then he started explaining more, but I can never follow MineCraft explanations.

Mine Chest Exclusive Sticker

Mine Chest Exclusive Sticker – Estimated Value $1

This is The Eye of Ender. I think this month is where we get into some really mythical concepts with MineCraft. Endermen rarely (but sometimes) lose these in defeat, and if you collect enough you can open a portal to the end of the game. My son really likes their stickers because usually, you can build with them. Fun!

Plush Ender Chest

Plush Ender Chest – Estimated Value $8

This is another Mine Chest exclusive! It’s a block! It’s actually a magical chest where you can store things without fear of being taken by other players. Also, my son informs me I photographed this upside down. Haha!

Minecraft Exclusive Pin

Minecraft Exclusive Pin – Estimated Value $5

It’s an Ender Dragon Head! These dragons must be defeated to win the game. Cool! I now understand why all this stuff is called “Ender” – because it’s all things you have to do or have at the end of the game!

Ender Dragon Lamp box closed

Ender Dragon Lamp – Estimated Value $20

Mine Chest sometimes includes an item that is available commercially, but this month everything is a Mine Chest exclusive! This lamp is an Ender Dragon, and it’s super cool! My son loves it!

The Verdict: This was another awesome package from Mine Chest! I mainly gauge how cool a Mine Chest is by my son’s reactions to the swag, and it never disappoints. This month his favorite item was actually the Ender Chest, surprisingly, but he also loved the lamp. He also really likes sharing with his friends. The value of everything this month adds up to about $49, which is really good for a $40 box. This is such a fun subscription for Minecraft fans!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the February box. From Mine Chest:

Mine Chest is a bi-monthly subscription. Chests should arrive between the 5th and 15th of every even numbered month.

Coupon – Use code BESTOF2017 to save 30% off all 1, 3, and 6-month subscriptions + get a FREE Crate!

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $39.99 with free shipping, which means that each of the 5 items in the box has an average cost of $8.

  1. We just wanted to let you know that after January 2018’s Bedrock chest, Mine Chest is moving back to and will no longer be provided by Loot Crate.

    The Adventure Chest team has been listening to all of the feedback our Mine Chest subscribers have and are making Mine Chest even better than it was before!

    Don’t worry, you’ll still be getting your Bedrock-themed chest (more details coming soon). But, you will receive a refund from Loot Crate for any chests after Bedrock that you’ve already paid for but have not yet received. For example, if you paid for a 3-Chest subscription and only received two Mine Chests, you will receive a refund from Loot Crate for one Mine Chest.

    If you have any questions regarding the Bedrock-themed Mine Chest or any other Mine Chests shipped by Loot Crate, you can reach out to their Customer Support team at for assistance. For any questions regarding future Mine Chests, head to for additional details.

  2. Loot Crate no longer sells Mine Chest. And I’m glad because this box was a shame for Christmas… Also, you got yours a full month after me?
