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.

    How do you increase the time it takes to start a game? When ever my game has enough players it starts in like 10secs, is it possible to change that to let say 30secs?

    Is there a way to automatically shrink the size of a last man standing map? In other words, as time progresses, you slowly shrink the size of the map forcing everyone left into a looming sudden death situation.

    @llukdreams - at the moment you can left click the sign to see all the game info like that

    @Vecteur - You cannot edit the default language file, that gets remade and reset all the time. You need to make a copy of that file, call it something else and make your language file from that. Then you go to your main minigame config.yml and set the new name of the language file it should use

    I don't can translate any message in the build 131. The file is updated with the default language.

    ~~~~Attention Build 131 addresses some of the 1.8 issues. Please post any tickets regarding the dev builds and 1.8 servers. PLEASE FILL IN ALL THE TICKET FIELDS. Its important to know what build you are using etc..

    @2332fun - hmm to be honest im not 100% sure. It should be fine but i do highly recommend using the dev builds now. They fix alot of things and seem to be very stable (Been running them for months now without issue)

    @saxons12 - unfortunately that doesn't help. Just means you had a null players when they disconnected from the game/server. You'd need to fill in a ticket saying what version you were using etc.. and if you can replicate the issue.

    @zacka123321 - make sure you are using a proper permissions plugin (and using it right) and adding the proper permissions to your players/groups. Check the wiki for the perms.

    @budopey - answered your ticket. Let me know if that build helps

    <<reply 2457134="">> Completely understandable with him being busy, I just haven't seen him online in some time is all. I am not sure what to do for some alternatives because this plugin covered a lot of bases for me and since updating to 1.8 I've had to remove just about every game besides for single player games and revamp my multi-player section with alternative plugins. I really hope the issues on 1.8 get fixed soon since this was one of my favorite plugins to use because of the wide variety of fun content it could generate with ease.

    I made a ticket covering the issues on 1.8 and apologize if it lacks enough information. The odd behaviors only happen in-game and there's nothing to show from console or server logs.
