VintageBeef states the rules to newcomer AnderZEL during a prank in April 2012

The prank wars are a series of pranks among the members of the Mindcrack Server. The purpose of the prank wars is to generate entertainment for the players and viewers. They are not meant to cause grief or destruction.

The guidelines for engagement are as follows:

  1. No TNT
  2. No Lava
  3. No Fire
  4. No Wither
  5. Always leave a sign (i.e., state yourself as the perpetrator)

The intention of these guidelines is to minimize or eliminate the destructive quality of a prank while still allowing for comical frustration or bewilderment on the part of the victim.[1] The first two guidelines were laid down shortly after jsano19 initiated the prank wars.[2] The last guideline may have risen in importance after Guude stated that, "if you don't leave a note then it doesn't count," as it renders the victim unable to retaliate. This was in response to a prank by Etho and Docm77 in January 2012 whereby they littered his builds with boats but failed to identify themselves as responsible.[3] Since the Minecraft 1.4 update, Mojang introduced a hostile destructive mob called the Wither that can be built anywhere like the Golems. It is agreed that the Wither will not be used in pranks.[4]
