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.

    Can players make minigames, without abusing it?

    Is there a way to turn off console messages? Minigames are sending duplicate messages to console. Everything that's broadcast in game is getting to the console twice.

    Please add option to deny joining minigames if the player has items in their inventory. For example: RequireEmptyInventory: true kind of setting in the config would be awesome. Players are loosing items because of bugs, which will take too long to fix. The best possible solution is this.

    @djt8000: - you really need to post problems like that in the ticket section. With the limited time razz has im not sure he checks comments often (if at all) i THINK having only a quick glance at whats going on you need to update your bukkit version to 1.7.9-R.01 at the very least as 1.6.4 minigames was built for that. If you insist on using 1.7.2 you may need to use the 1.6.3 Minigames

    @Hawezo: - Yes it is possible. If you use command blocks or something you can force the player to run /mg end <player> is the same as the game ending and them winning.

    @Jhwx: - Ctf is simple. Just make and setup your minigame/arena the same way you would for anything else. Set the gametype to Multiplayer and the Game Mechanic to CTF. Then you just place your red and blue flags where you want them.

    Follow the last paragraph on there for ctf flags. (no need to add them to the flag list you just simply put the sign down and it does the rest)

    In the end I left the jar alone and didn't change the prefix. However NOW I'm getting this error, I have tried reinstalling 3 times including the data directory. Someone help, I'm on a deadline to get my friend's server running ;-;

    @djt8000: Go

    It's possible to modify the .jar. But it's not the best solution. Try ask to add the possibility to change the prefix, or add a plugin that replace strings input via new strings. I saw a plugin named ReMap, but it's outdated. You can try it, it's maybe the solution at your problem

    Is it possible to perform a command instead of clicking a sign to finish a minigame ?
