We bought a nook for our son for his birthday and while he can do most things (read books, internet, netflix) fine on it, one of his main hobbies right now is Minecraft. I know next to nothing about Minecraft so forgive me if I state this wrong, but when he plays minecraft, he is able to join other players worlds, but they cannot join his worlds.
Here is what we know:
All the devices are the same version of minecraft (7.2)
We are all on the same wifi connection
His "multiplayer server visibility" (or whatever that switch in minecraft is called) is on
He can join all his friends "worlds" that come to our house, but they cannot join his
Here is what we have tried:
Updating to latest nook software
uninstalling and reinstalling minecraft
toggling that multiplayer visibility switch on and off several times
Nothing works so far. Other forums have said it is an OS problem and there is no fix. Although we're mostly happy witht he nook hd+, if there is no fix for this, we will probably return it.
If anyone has any ideas, please help.

Have you tried emailing the developer of the Minecraft App and asking them what might be causing the issue?

I guess by OS Minecraft mean 'Not Us - either Android OS or Barnes & Noble who have tweaked the Android OS'
If this is a deal breaker for you, and you know from other online forums that this issue has no work-around or fix, I would return the device asap within the return period.
