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.

    Could you make it so when you capture a flag by right clicking on a banner you wear it on your head?

    Thank your for the reply but it doesn't solve my problem. I'm trying to configure a dungeon PvE with Bosses. I try to add a NPC (Citizen & Beton Quest) in the lobby, it's ok players can talk to him without problems. My problem is that i try to have different lobbies for the different betonquest reputation a player can unlock. The stuff in each lobby is different for each reputation. In fact the NPC will display all stuff option, the player will chose his best option and the NPC will teleport him in a room with the loadout he can access. Unfortunately, teleport by this way can't work. I need to create 1 room for 1 set of loadout.

    @Rouchesta + nick331999 - Yep absolutely, you need to use the built in minigame teleport command to bypass the teleport protections minigames has. do /mg tp and it shows the various ways you can utilize the teleport (player to player, player back to checkpoint, specific co-ords etc...)

    Yes Im having the same problem, I really need to know if theres a way around this to get my game working. The message is:

    - [Minigames] Failed to teleport. This could be related to world permissions.

    Hi thanks for updating this awsome plugin. Is it possible to allow teleport command command in a minigame ? If yes, how ?

    Thank for your help. Rouchesta.

    @Icefang23: Go

    Of course! I have that planned, but at the moment, there's no way to do it without another plugin to help (there is one, not sure if I'm going to use it yet).

    This update is awesome! Suggestion for next update: now that this is comparable with 1.8, you should add something where when a player joins a minigame a large title of that minigame name is shown with a configurable subtitle. it would be cool if you had the option to customize the text as well with different colors and other properties.

    Sorry guys, running a large server with never ending problems and tasks, topped with that pesky real life getting in the way can really stop all the fun things >< Ill try my best to get back into answering questions. Hopefully everyone is going to be having fun playing with all the new features :)
