Survival Games is a plugin that has the aim of creating a fully automated hunger games style experience. The plugin was created to be simple to use, and to be easily setup on any type of server, no matter the size or type! Survival Games provides a way for your server to have a full fledged, fully automated hunger games experience for any player. For more information on the aim of the plugin, watch popular youtuber AntVenom play Survival Games HERE.


Before installing this plugin, a few things are required.

  • WorldEdit- Needed to create arenas.
  • MySQL Database (optional) - If you wish to use stats, you must have an SQL database.


  • Any plugin that modifies damage amounts by applying more damage can sometimes cause issues and make the player actually die (ie McMMO).
  • Some locking plugins such as LWC have been reported to have issues with the lobby signs, but should work normally if protection is turned of for those signs.
  • WORLD PORTAL will make this plugin completely break if the lobby is not in a world that is loaded at start!


This is not just another Hunger Games plugin. This plugin aims to bring a fully automated, fully fledged gaming system to your server.


  • Full automation
  • Automatic arena regeneration
  • Chest reset / randomly filled chest
  • Auto game start
  • Spectators
  • In-game Lobby with real-time player and arena stats
  • Multiple arenas
  • Simultaneous games
  • Web-based stats
  • Easy arena setup
  • Per Arena Permissions
  • Lightning and thunder on player deaths (Simulate cannons)
  • Multiworld Support
  • Events API - Economy, Kits + More!

Plus many, many more features included in this plugin!


  • A full tutorial on kits, economy and new features will be released soon!
  • /sg setlobbywall was changed to /sg addwall <arena> in versions 0.5.0 and above!
New Permissions:

If you have for example 6 arenas, and you want every player to be able to join all arenas, give each rank the following permissions:

  • sg.arena.join.<arena#> (Replace <arena#> with the arena number.)
  • sg.arena.join
  • sg.lobby.join

Note: Devs and important people of this plugin have colored names on lobby signs

    @NorskGamerJJ: Go

    I had that problem about a month ago. I deleted the jar file and the Survival Games folder and installed another survivalgames plugin because this one didn't work at the time. I recently tried this plugin again and it was working again...

    @Jacke1012: Go

    You're not in an arena, you didn't set it up properly.

    I've created a fork of this and I'm maintaining it for anyone interested. The github repo is here and I will be posting files and updates on there in the near future. If you put an issue there I will try to resolve it. I plan on cleaning out old stuff, finishing new stuff, and documenting what I can.

    Stay tuned!

    EDIT: This will support Bukkit and Spigot 1.8.8 for those who want to know

    EDIT 2: The first testing build is out if anyone would like to test it: github release

    EDIT 3: I should have mentioned this at the top, but I will definately take over/maintain this plugin if the author(s)/maintainers allow me to. The reason it may be hard is because they have been inactive for quite some time
