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 documentation for v1.8 changes be added?

    Also, I'm having some trouble with capture signs. [Minigames] flag capture doesn't seem to be working properly.

    Guys wanting an update for the plugin please use our latest dev builds at

    All our fixes and additions are there. It still runs fine on our server.

    Also some of your requests already happen to be in the latest minigames / regions changelogs.

    Also use for a couple of experimental extras including libsdisguise for using disguises in loadouts and other cool stuff.

    Really sorry direct support has stopped. Running our own server network during our free time while still having to have fulltime employment takes up more time then we could possibly give already.

    The plugin is still being kept up to date though. I may post an updated change here sometime but you can always follow all our updates and fixes directly from our jenkins build server

    Please add a permission (minigame.join.full) that VIP can kick others from the server if it is full.

    It seems I was wrong!

    After isolating the development version of the plugin (Minigames and Minigames Regions) to a local server without any other plugins, I have found that the previously mentioned problem does not persist. It seems to work, and quite well.

    If you are also having this issue, I will edit this comment once I find which plugin is interfering with it and causing the problem.

    I solved my problem, maybe it will help you too...

    The plugin that was causing my problem was ColorChat. It's quite obvious once I started eliminating plugins, but it added a colour code to every input making it not recognise it. You may have a similar problem and this may help you.

    ==== Original Post: ====

    This plugin is very much broken.

    Simple games will work fine. Most options will work fine, if you do not get too complicated.

    Loadouts do NOT work unless you're using the default loadout, which means all teams have the exact same stuff.

    Regions do NOT work. Some simple options will work, but anything that needs a user input, such as activating a remote region, will not work. After looking in the files, I have found that this is because everything taken from the user has a prefix of '\xa7a' or something similar.

    For example, if you wanted to create a game like in the example video, where a capture causes a region to explode, you'd do this:

    Create region 1-flag capture Create region 2-explode Go into region 1 and set it to remotely activate another region. This is where it'd ask you to type the name of the region you'd like to use. If you type in '2-explode' it would write to the file '\xa7a2-explode' meaning it would not find it.

    This goes for loadouts and most probably anything with user input.

    You can create two regions, set them up and go to 'plugins/minigames/nameofyourgame/regions.yml' and manually delete the \xa7a from the start of the name. This will fix it and make it work, although this is difficult to do for many games.

    Other than that, pretty okay plugin. Would like to see it fixed by someone who knows how.

    If anyone has any problems setting a game up, shoot me a message. //

    I changed my server to a Bungee network and last night I was setting up my minigames server everything was going great. Decided to finish in the morning and now I can't finish since if I double click to enter a value via chat, it opens chat I type my input and hit enter it waits till the time out time is up then returns to my edit window. Bug or something I did wrong?

    It just started to work; did nothing to fix, just checked once in a while to make sure it wasn't me doing it wrong.

    Anyone out there who is experienced with this plugin? I'm having some problems with the regions and nodes, as well as some of the settings in the edit menu concerning teams. If you can help me, please add me on Skype. My Skype name is templarazrael. Thank you.
