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.

    Ok so a follow-up on my recent question: it appears to be possible to run a custom command as a reward for winning a minigame, but I don't know what variable to use as player. My command is /notes give <player> 1. I tried: /notes give @p 1 /notes give {username} 1 /notes give player 1 /notes give <player> 1

    and none have worked. Please help, I want to reward players with a custom command when they win a game!

    @TsUniverse: Go

    Yes it's working in 1.8 but the Join signs don't seem to be. Hopefully this will be fixed soon

    @Cjorange: Go

    They are unable to break blocks, most likely, because the minigame is in adventure mode, OR you have used WorldGuard or similar to protect the area.

    As for the signs, are you getting any kind of error when you make the sign, or when a player tries to use it? Is the Minigame enabled?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to make custom prizes with commands? I want to have the server run a custom command, '/notes give <player> 1' when they win a specific minigame. Is this possible? If not possible through config, is there an api that could allow me to run a line of code if a player wins a minigame?

    it works in 1.8 for me, but I am using the Dev Builds, but before that I was using this current build in 1.8 and from what I remember it works.

    Can anyone help me with this?:

    I am adding a lot of different kits to my CTF game, one being ghost and another being Spy. Ghost is invisible the entire game, and sly gets a 15 second long potion. However, when either one is invisible, you can still see their name. I haven't found a way to disable the name plates in there. I have found plugins that disable names, but I only want to hide them in that world, but I would prefer they just disappear with the invisibility effect. I already submitted a ticket, but I thought maybe someone could help me find a temporary fix. Thanks!
