  1. Enjoy your decorated pot

How you place the shards determines the decorated faces of your pot. Also, you can use a combination of shards and bricks if you only want certain sides of the pot decorated, leaving the others plain. The bottom slot is the side of the pot that will face outward, so if you want to make it fancy, that’s where to put the shard. The beauty of this game is the customization.
