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.

    Set the type to multilayer and then on the next page of the minigame GUI there is a teams option. Add the teams you want into the game.

    I can't set the Type to teams, I can only set it to "Singleplayer, Multiplayer, Global" which doesn't allow me to create teams. Can anyone help? I haven't done anything with the configs.

    @Ironic8b49: Go

    Oh odd. Maybe it's in player settings in the minigame GUI. You should be able to disable death messages there. As for spectator spawnpoint, this will help when players die after a game. With me, when losers would respawn, they would respawn at server spawn and not at the end game spawn. When setting the spectator spawnpoint it seemed to fix it. That should be seen in the minigame tool GUI

    @Cmoor: Go

    I can't find any command for the Spectator spawn point, I also could find anything about disabling the death message, but that's not that important. I had the players lives set to one. If I understand correct setting this spectator spawn point will stop the re-spawn message players get on screen when they die.

    @Ironic8b49: Go

    Make sure to set a spectator spawn point. That will fix death spawns. And I believe there is an option in the config to disable death messages. Also make sure you only have it to where players only have one life.

    @Cmoor: Go

    I didn't use the minigame tool yet and tried to run the game in spectator and that was weird. I then changed to creative and then back to survival and now it allows me to break blocks. Just the death part don't seem right. I get Tried to swim in lava message, is there a way to not see that and also no need to re-spawn when you lose.

    @FrostyzDrink: Go

    On the minigame GUI, at the very bottom there is an option to go to the next page. Click that. There is also a team section. Click that. In there you have to add the specific team colors you are using for your minigame. This is new to 1.7.0. It might also fix the CTF issue your having. If you have the area region ed with worldguard, make sure they are able to interact. /rg flag (regioname) interact allow.

    @Ironic8b49: Go

    Yes. You can also use the minigame tool.

    I am using Minigame 1.7.0 and for some reason my players cant capture the enemy flag. Also, when I do the command /mgm set (Arena) start red 1, it says it doesn't recognise the color red or blue.
