Hunger Games

Hunger Games


Hunger Games is a minecraft server mod which enables any user to host Hunger Games on their server. The plugin has features which include, and not limited to, everything you see in the classic movie. The plugin features hidden chests, sponsorships, and sudden deaths! Not only does this plugin include all of the confusing details from the actual event, it automates them all for you! When downloading this plugin, we know you have two things in mind: Does it work to the extent that I want it to, and how much space is this going to take up? Easy. This plugin has been extensively tested and fleshed of all erroneous code, and made sure to be efficient as possible, while using only a fraction of data. Here, we made sure to emphasize that ANYONE can run a successful games on ANY server. Using this plugin, you can have the server that booms with a huge number of users playing, and a dedicated server for only Hunger Games, and the only thing you need is this plugin!. Also, if you're a smaller server owner, you can use this plugin alongside your other favorite plugins and still play a game or two with some friends. The plugin has NO dependencies, but also works with other plugins if you wish. Storing your players' stats is now a breeze. With large databases or just simple text documents, player kills, wins, deaths, points, and total games played are stored in either a MySQL database or a text document. What makes this plugin the best, is that everything that could possibly turn your games from boom to bust are configurable! Nearly everything is configurable and if there is something that is not but you want configurable, just ask or submit a ticket and we will try to accommodate you. Also when we update the default config, you don't have to let it regenerate or anything. It just adds the options that were missing for you.


  • MySQL - When available and specified in the plugin's configuration file, the mod will take full use of database provided by you locally or externally. Simply enter the database information, and player stats will be stored safely away in the database. Changing data is also as easy as a command, or the administrator can choose to push data through a GUI. No confusing SQL queries!
  • YML File - If you don't have a MySQL Database available, the plugin will use a yml document to store player data. Although this is not recommended, this provides an easy way for users to view and edit player stats.


No plugins required! There are no other plugins required to run this plugin. Although, it is suggested that you get plugins for anti-cheating and multi-world to make it easier to use this plugin.

    Does this work for 1.8+? (e.g.1.8.4)

    public void onEnable() {
    getLogger().info("Bringing out Rex the Test Dog...");
    getLogger().info("Feeding him...");
    getLogger().info("Reasurring him...");
    getLogger().info("Sending Rex the Test Dog...");
    getLogger().info("Buying new Rex...");
    getLogger().info("Plugin intialization complete.");
    } ZBDH80da9df1ac9a4c11872f7d782aa9084c

    Just starting seeing this: Was this an error in an update? I tried a brand new Hunger Games plugin version, same error. Would love to use this plugin but at the moment, it's broken. As suggested by other people, Please add signs, but also make it configurable to keep the, "join and play" feel, so that you just join the server, and the game is ready. THANKS!

    Hello. Can you add the [Join] Signs? And what about a way to Auto-Fill the chests after each game?

    just curious, I see people still using this, are you still on 1.6.2 or is this working for 1.7.x in its current state?

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you could make it so players can do /team (player) and then the other person could do /team accept. Then they couldn't fight each other but at death match they can kill each other. This would be super cool and super amazing if you can edit that into this awesome plugin! Thanks for everything, even if you don't agree you should do it. Good luck on this plugin! Thanks, Yeti

    Hey, I just got this plugin and set up a HG world, but is there a way I can turn down the frequency of the time notifications? They're getting a bit annoying popping up every 30 seconds.
