About Minigames




Minigames will be moving to the spigot site, a link will be shown here once it is.


Minigames is a plugin in which users can create and play several types of Minigames on a server, without the risk of losing items or XP when they die. Players can also use checkpoints so when they die, they are reverted back to that position.

The Possible Minigame types are:

  • Single Player - for jump puzzles, mazes etc.
  • Last Man Standing - A multiplayer Free for All (FFA) PvP Minigame
  • Race - A Multiplayer race Minigame
  • Team Deathmatch - A deathmatch round against 2 teams, first to a defined score wins!
  • Deathmatch - A free for all deathmatch round against any predefined amount of players, first to a defined score wins!
  • Spleef - Its possible to create custom Spleef arenas, as well as your standard spleef arena.
  • Treasure Hunt - A global treasure finding Minigame that is always running
  • CTF - An expansion to the Team Deathmatch Minigame.
  • Infection - An expansion to the Team Deathmatch Minigame where the infected players must kill all survivors.


  • Prizes for completing a Minigame
  • Economy support (Requires Vault)
  • All command configuration for creating Minigames
  • Completely customisable, lots of settings to create your own styled Minigame.
  • Ability to create multiple loadouts
  • Inventory saving
  • XP saving
  • Minigame regeneration (slightly limited)
  • Timers
  • An automated update checker for OP's (Can be turned off in the main config by setting updateChecker to false)
  • SQL completion data storage for websites or more informative data (Requires SQLibrary)
  • And lots more!

Minigames was created for players to play games within a server and win prizes for completion, also to let players play PvP games without the risk of losing their hard earned items and XP. Minigames also reward players for completing each Minigame, or with PvP Minigames, the player can be rewarded with 'bets' that players make before they start the Minigame. These bets can be in Economy money or preset items.

These Minigames can be created in any style the player wishes, for example, parkour jump puzzles, mazes and treasure hunts. As well as PvP games like CTF, races and more. You are given a lot of options to add to each Minigame individually, so they are all completely customisable.

Basic Region & Nodes Tutorial

Minigames 1.7.0

Ok, its been a long time since I've actually released something... I'm sorry, but real life stuff got in the way. Anyways heres 1.7 build for Minecraft 1.8 with a heap of features and cool stuff.


  • Renamed "score type" to "game mechanic"
  • Changed Treasure Hunt type to Global type & created a Treasure Hunt game mechanic
  • Free For All & Teams Game types have now been merged into one "Multiplayer" type
  • Removed the info command (I wasn't updating it, just use /mg edit instead)
  • Removed restore blocks (Regen area needed only now)
  • Prevented default loadout from being deleted
  • Made Singleplayer select a random start location when joining if there are more than one
  • Removed force quit messages


New Regions & Nodes:

Added the ability for players to create regions within their minigames that execute actions under certain conditions. (All actions, conditions and executors VERY highly configurable and constantly being added to) Wiki page to come soon. For a very basic introduction, more tutorials to come! Also note that you do not need to add this plugin if you don't want to, it is separate from Minigames and not required at all.

New More than 2 teams!

You can now have up to 14 teams (I think) per game. All settings are applied via the edit menu. This is also why Team and FreeForAll types were merged into one type. 0 teams = free for all, 1 team = co-op, 2+ normal team games.

  • Added sounds to key Minigame events and config option to turn off
  • Added option to disable inventory saving
  • Added Game Over settings so games don't have to end instantly (think Team Fortress 2 ending)

    i got up to /mg set (name) type treasure_hunt and it say invaild minigame type and cant set this from some reason but i do /minigame hint and it said there is no treasure hunt running. so it must be there and is tell me there isnt one running but i dont know that way to type it because treasure_hunt isnt working

  • #22

    is there a way where i can give one team e.g. blue an item such as a sword and not a bow, and then the other team e.g. red a bow and not a sword??? If there is no possible way of doing this could you please add it to the plugin since i think it will be really useful
