Yup
Done this a few times while it's raining at camp. Keeps the little ones entertained.
No Internet, just a wifi capable router and 2 laptops with wifi that can run minecraft.
Fantastic game.

I believe the correct wording would be wifi capable, Internet optional.

I read the wording to mean that If you just set it up using the cat5 cable you don't need to have a wifi capable device.
