NOTICE == 08/03/2016

As most of you have already worked out, public support for this project has been non existent. Unfortunately with the workload of trying to manage and run a server network where minigames is only 1 out of what feels like 1000 projects we maintain... It gets hard trying to find time to help everyone.

But fear not this project is indeed not abandoned! You can follow all our updates to this project on our public build server at

Also we will probably move this over to spigot sometime once we get some time to reopen public support. Be sure to watch here When that happens!


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.

    when i create a new Minigame like: /minigame create FREE_FOR_ALL, then comes the Error message: There is no Minigame type by the name FREE_FOR_ALL, but in the Wiki is it so. (Sorry bad English)

    This is so outdated, there are no tutorials that are even remotely the same as this, half of the commands in the tutorials don't even exist for example lms "invalid minigame type", this is just a MEGA pain in the arse to try and work out, but thats what happend when you have lazt arse authors.

    Even the command /minigame set <Minigame> type FREE_FOR_ALL as explained in the wiki doesnt work

    1.9 Build works fine! :D I found only one Bug... I made an OITC-Test-Game (Multiplayer - Lifes - MinPlayers 2 - MaxPlayers 4). If 2 Players join, the game will start. But if a player left, the game starts with only 1 Player.

    + I like this awesome Plugin! You can "make" your "own" Minigame. After lots of Test - It's easy! If you know how, you can make so cool stuff! I hope an Update (maybe with more possibilities - So that you can/change everything. Example: That you can make a Mario-Party Game (Minigame with Minigames).) comes soon! :D

    PS: Sorry for my bad English ^^
