Hey guys! Today I thought I would share the commands and stats you need to know to help you best use the scoreboard in your Minecraft worlds.

First things first, what is the scoreboard? The scoreboard system is a complex gameplay mechanic utilized through commands. Scoreboards are used to track, set, and list the scores of entities in a bunch of different ways.

Now that you understand what it is, lets get into how it works.

Lets say when you press TAB, you want to see how many times a player has slept in a bed. We first start by creating a custom stat and giving it a name.

We always start with the /scoreboard prefix. Then we want to select objectives to add

So far our command should look like this: /scoreboard objectives add

The next section of this command is where we will give it a custom tag. We will use this custom tag in the second command to show the stat in our tab screen. In our example we will call our objective TimesSlept

/scoreboard objectives add TimesSlept

Once you've given your objective a custom tag, we will now select which objective or stat you'd like to track. This is the part that gets a little tricky if you're not familiar with the specific statistic syntax. For this example we will continue using the stat Times Slept in a Bed. I will put a list at the bottom of this post with all other available stats and commands. To add a custom stat into your objective you will need to add the following syntax:minecraft.custom:(stat)

So far our command should look like this:
/scoreboard objectives add TimesSlept minecraft.custom:minecraft.sleep_in_bed

Our first command has been completed and we can now use our second command to display our stat in the TAB screen. To do this we once again start with our prefix /scoreboard and select objectives. The next step is to select setdisplay. This will tell the game to display your stat. We are almost finished! Next you will select where to display your objective. There are three places where you can choose to display your objective. The TAB screen which is called list, the sidebar, and below a players name. The display were using in this example is our TAB screen. so we will select list.

You final command should look like this:
/scoreboard objectives setdisplay list TimesSlept

Now every time you bring up your TAB list, you will be able to see how many times a player has slept. I hope this was helpful!!! I will add a list below with other command and stats you can use on the scoreboard.
