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.

    @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:

    @Doom6197 - that means your language file is missing its message under the plyfound token. Goto the lang file and make sure under treasurehunt "PlyFound" has a mesage.

    @tzankotz - no it wont. Thats what vault does. It is the middle man between your economy plugin and minigames to do transactions. Without vault essentials wont know anything about paying your players.

    @Redstonneur66 - We don't even have a working 1.8 bukkit to run our servers on, no chance plugins are going to be made before that

    @Cronos2212 - not a bad idea but i strongly suggest you put it in the ticket section so we have a record of it. Comments don't always get checked and your suggestion will eventually disappear.

    @tommyraudy - You cant, minigames has an inbuilt teleport command you can use in a clever way if you want. /mg tp But otherwise the plugin stops all other teleporting.

    @purejack - i doubt it.. You can go through the permissions list and see what you can give, but i wouldn't recommend it. The creation of minigames isn't really something to just allow general population free access to..

    @IANTHONYI - It shouldn't be sending the same message twice in console? There is no way to turn it off but the console should only show the messages once.

    @rheuer22 - It saves it, it wont actually say or do anything (may need a nice message or something) If you are saying your actual changes aren't saving when you do that and close the editor down then possible bug. Report it in the ticket section.

    When my treasure hunt ends I get this in chat "[Minigames] No path found for: minigame.treasurehunt.plyfound"

    Anyone have some info on this?

    Will it work with essentials economy without vault?

    Do you update to 1.8 ?

  • Avatar of Cronos2212 Cronos2212 Sep 01, 2014 at 06:54 UTC - 0 likes

    I was just wondering if you could add an option on the checkpoint signs to put in a number in the third line, for example:

    [Minigame] Checkpoint 5

    Would mean that after using the checkpoint 5 times, you have to set the checkpoint again. This would be very useful for example since I'm using this for parkour.

    GREAT PLUGIN BTW! Thanks a bunch, made my day :)
