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.

    Is it possible to make it for admins to choose whether the minigame can be team-auto-balance or not to do it. I hope we can decide how many players in each team also.

    @Trustinlies - ive already requested this (and being able to group certain minigames in a rotation etc.. voting for which one you want next) And Razz has approved however im sure that would be a massive update and at the moment he is focusing on the new regions and nodes executors. (List of things to add is very large haha..)

    @Gelgoog135 - Thanks Gelgoog135 but please remember to put problems like that in the ticket section. Razz rarely has time to check comments now. However thanks for bringing this up as we were not even aware of that not working. Ive let him know and he thinks he knows why its doing that.

    @saxons12 - Same for you saxons. Please fill out the tickets for those errors :P Are you able to make up a local test server with your current plugins and such. Repeat the process and if you get the same errors can you use the latest dev builds on the jenkins and see if you get the errors still? Reason i ask is its possible this issue has been fixed in the latest devs but if it hasnt, the error report will give the location of the problem in the new devs that are being made.

    Please fix the bug that

    When I finished setting up a TEAM minigame, it looks normal.

    But when I type /mgm end red [minigame name]

    (I'm sure it contains red team)

    It says "An internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command"

    It will appear in version 1.6.4 and even 1.7.0-b113

    I'm using spigot #1649 (spigot-1.7.10-R0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar)

    What is the possibility of getting a voting option in the near future? for voting for maps?

    @pellopo82 - we are using a spigot version that is 20 builds + then that. But it should still have worked with the version your error is saying. You will need to make a ticket listing all your plugins etc.. We aren't having any issue. Are you using npc's in any way?

    @SniperBoss17 - Razz said he might actually go ahead and do that. But so much on his list of things to do... Best to make a ticket with the request so he has a record of it.

    @Jupiter1390 - Currently all being worked on with the new regions and nodes feature in the dev builds (very very experimental) The video above shows one small functionality of it in action (and our terrible acting skills)

    @Texiqq - There is no permission for that. Your players should be able to throw snowballs. If you aren't able to, hop out of a minigame and check again in the same area (shouldn't be able to still since it isnt blocked by minigames) You have another plugin that is preventing it

    What permission do I need to give players so that they can throw the snowballs in the Paintball gamemode?

    Wish some sign functions like flag and checkpoint can be used by commands by command block

    Could you possibly make it compatible with NameTagEdit

    Not working with latest spigot and latest dev build. It's spamming my log with errors:
