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.

    I have a Search and Destroy type Game Mode and everything works great except, the person to kill the last player is stuck in the arena and has to do a command to get out? suggestion? Also I had to delete the select teams for it because it would switch all the players to one team? lol I only need help on the player staying in arena though! Thanks :D

    Is there an updated Spleef setup tutorial? Also, how do you do those triggers when a team captures a flag? I can't find any documentation on either of these things. I found an outdated Spleef setup video, but when I followed the instructions it didn't work.

    anyone else having issues with loadouts? they keep disappearing and not sure why... I would report it as a bug but not sure if its a bug or if I am setting it up wrong?

    Figured it out, I didn't save the loadout properly before but now I have and it works perfectly fine. Great plugin! A little difficult to figure out how to setup but once its figured out its smooth sailing from there. I suggest this plugin over all other Minigame plugins!
