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

    Dear double_0_negative,

    I found a bug/glitch, and I have no idea how to fix it. Sometimes players cant edit their inventory. A leather chestplates for example mixes up with an apple. And now it's a chestplate.

    Sometimes player have to Press ''q'' In order to drop items in toolbar. Because they cant throw it out from their inventory. So they can only drop items from the toolbar.

    Please help me fix this! It only happens when you are in an arena! D;

    you should make a permission node like this: sg.arena.joinfull or sg.arena.bypass

    This permission node should give players the feature to join a full game (Random players will be kicked) If everyone has this permission, a random player of those should be kicked (With a message set in config)

    And for those ones who gets kicked, they will be sent a message witch can be changed in config.

    And maybe make a tutorial video on how to add website stats. It would also be kinda cool if one could customize their own signs.

    I have also noticed that when someone die, their items will still be in the arena. They wont even de-spawn if the arena is in another world.

    Maybe you can make an option in config where people can choose if they want the players to autospawn or not. (Where players get teleported back at death, without the death screen thingy)

    How do you use kits? I know how to create the kits in the config and I know to set the permission for the group, but how do you select the kit while in hg? I don't understand how the kits work :/ someone please explain.

    @sambish20: Go

    You must edit the chest.yml file located in your plugins\SurvivalGames folder.

    Any way of being able to set the Grace Period per arena instead of a general setting for all arenas? I'm using this amazing plugin to run all my mini-games as well and some of the games don't need a grace period...

    Again, thanks for an amazing plugin.

    Did you set more than 1 spawn point in your arena?

    Hey buddy! Did u think about update it to plugin like Blitz Survival Games? (Now we've got kits so we need just "blitz star". (There is nether star - i saw it on console)).

    Thank you so much for creating this plugin, I am planning on using it on several pvp arenas.

    I am using the recommended build with craftbukkit 1.6.2 R1.0. The setup worked fine. Somehow though after creating the sign wall in the lobby, the arena has only one allowed player. The config.yml does read 20 but SurvivalGames only allows one player. Any other player will get the error message that the game is already full.

    Any idea on how to change that behavior of the plugin ?

    I hope you can help me.

    How can you set what goes in the chests as I don't like everything leather and wood.

What should be added next?
