Minecraft is one main supported titles here in the AJSA Xbox One Community. Since August of 2015 members of the Angry Army have been meeting up weekly (normally on Thursday nights). During our Special Week of Events we are going to be putting a twist on our Minecraft event in recognition of the unconventionality for the week.
Hosted by our own Minecraft Game Officer, Bamboe, members will be taken to a new land far away from our accustomed and safe halls of the "Angry" Fortress. Mini-games, survival elements, and other features will be included.

The Angry Army is being re-deployed to Los Santos. We've heard reports that several competing crews have been setting up shop in the city establishing warehouses and offices to run their unscrupulous criminal enterprises.
We want in on this action!
We will be working, and playing, together to build up our own enterprise and going through content from the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update. Warehouses and offices will be pre-established and squads will be designated. We will work our hardest to make sure we have everyone in the same open, free-roam lobby.
Members of all skill levels are welcome to play! We'll also be doing some crazy custom game modes set up by the host and Xbox One Game Officer, Slade Bogaty. RuneX will be listed as co-host and will assist the main host.
Participants are highly encouraged to join the Xbox Live Party of the host "Slade Bogaty" and/or "AScapeRunePlaya" during the event. If the party is full, please message him so room can be made for you.
