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.

    I'm trying to figure out how to make a region explode when a flag is captured. In fact, i would really like even some text examples of configuring various types of effects.

    I don't know if im configuring the minigame wrong, or if its worldguard doing something.

    Any info would be fantastic.

    I just figured out how to get treasure hunt to work, it seems to only have one chest at one time or is that cause only one player on at the time of testing? Once chest is found it does not generate another chest. Do I have the settings set wrong or is that how this game works?

    I just downloaded the latest dev build #150 at boot-up in chat it said a new release of Minigames, version 1.70 for 1.8.1 and above is available for download I thought I had the latest version? Also I never setup a sqlite for this plugin and I assumed the Scoreboard Sign would not work, Please make it clear in how too's so future server owners will not have trouble setting your plugin up.

    I like this plugin and I have already created several games. Thank you for this. But I have a problem with APPLY_POTION. I can not choose the effect. This puts SPEED effect and I can not change it. What is the solution for this?

    Thank you for your plugin, it is really fun !!!
