Hallo Everyone

Need some advice/assistance.

The kid has been playing Minecraft on the phone (android) during the lockdown. Now wants to play with friends on PC.

I have no idea where or how to acquire the game. On windows store, I am unable to add a South African address to make a payment:

On Amazon, there is a note:
Note: Currently, this item is available only to customers located in the United States.

(https://www.amazon.com/Minecraft-Ma...d=1599503114&sprefix=minecraft,aps,327&sr=8-1)

I am lost. Thanks in advance for any life raft sent this way.

I imagine it's on Steam as well?
Seems I'm wrong...
What about the Microsoft store?

Just make sure the friends are using the same Minecraft Version. As far as I know Minecraft Bedrock (WIndows version) and the Java version are not compatible.
I bought mine on G2A for 2 Euro and claimed it on the Microsoft Store.
