Monopoly comes to Bukkit!!

Monopoly is a well-known game (that I do not own, see below) that I thought might be fun to play inside a minecraft server.


  • Admins can kick players out of the game if they see they are taking too long for their turn or any other reason they see fit.
  • Names of spaces are customizable!
  • Cards are customizable!
  • Physical board!
  • Physical jail cell!
  • Players are the pieces! They are teleported to the appropriate space when they roll.
  • When a player loses, their property is put back on the board as unowned and their money is put in the pot.
  • Automatic Turn Ending!
  • Game Saving!
  • Sessions!
  • Players are teleported back to their last location after the game is over. Their game mode is also put back.
  • Banning/Unbanning!
  • New in 1.5 - Menus! (Similar to those in CreateYourOwnMenus)
  • New in 1.5 - Blocks representing houses/hotels!
  • New in 1.5 - Trading!


Differences between the game and the plugin

Auctions have been removed. I have never played with this rule anyway, and in my personal opinion is kind of an annoying rule.

Mortgages have been removed.

- If there is significant need/want for the rules to be added or change, I may do so


  • Mineopoly.general.chat (allows a player to see what's going on in the game)
  • Mineopoly.general.game (allows a player to enter the game, overrides other permissions if they are playing)
  • Mineopoly.general.stats (allows a player not in game to see game stats, such as player or property information)
  • Mineopoly.admin.end (allows a player to end the current game)
  • Mineopoly.admin.force-add (allows a player to add players to the currently running game)
  • Mineopoly.admin.queue (allows a player to see who is in the game queue)
  • Mineopoly.admin.kick (allows a player to kick someone from the game)
  • Mineopoly.admin.reload (allows a player to reload the config)
  • Mineopoly.admin.set-paste-location (allows a player to set the location where the board is pasted)
  • Mineopoly.admin.start (allows a player to manually start the game)

Permission Tips

This only works if TacoAPI version 2.3.3 or later is installed

To give a player all 'general' permissions:

  • Mineopoly.general.*

To give a player all 'admin' permissions:

  • Mineopoly.admin.*

To give a player all permissions that Mineopoly requires:

  • Mineopoly.*

House Rules

House rules are a new feature in 1.5. It allows you to adjust the gameplay experience.

  • land-on-go-bonus - A bonus for landing excactly on go. Default: 0

  • trade-while-jailed - Players can start or participate in trade while in jail. Default: false


Sessions are a new system in 1.4 that allow players to leave (log out) for a short amount of time before being kicked form the game. The default amount of time is 1 minute.

When a player logs off, they are not automatically kicked from the game. If they have not logged in within a certain amount of time (mineopoly.sessions.session-timeout-minutes), then the player will be kicked.

Game Saves

Game saves are a new system in 1.4. It allows you to save the current game, and then resume it later.

  • To save a game, use /mineopoly save <save-name>
  • To resume the game, use /mineopoly resume <save-name>

Creating Cards

Mineopoly allows the customization of the Chance and Community Chest cards. A card is basically a YAML file that consists of a description and action.

These files can be named whatever you want, as long as they are in the right folder.


The action of the card determines what the card does when it is 'drawn'

  • give # - gives the player money
  • jail - jails the player
  • move # - makes the player move forward (or backward if the number is negative)
  • movenearest [railroad/utility] - moves the player to the nearest railroad or utility
  • moveto # - makes the player move the section that has that specific id
  • payall # - makes the player pay every other player an amount of money
  • payplayer - makes all other players pay the player that drew the card (opposite of payall)
  • paypot # - makes the player put money in the pot
  • repairs # # - makes the player put an amount of money for every house (first number) and every hotel (second number) they own
  • take # - takes money from the player


Variables are new in 1.4. They allow you to add various strings to the card's description.

  • %<id> - Will be replaced with the name of the space with the given id
  • %randomDev - Will be replaced with either jeb_, notch, Dinnerbone, or EvilSeph (random)
  • %randomPlayer - Will be replaced with the name of a random player playing Mineopoly (but not the person that drew the card)
  • %randomSpace - Will be replaced with the name of a random space on the board.



Unzip the file, put the jar in the plugins folder. The .schematic file and the cards folder goes in the Mineopoly folder located inside the plugins folder (create it if it does not exist)


Start the server so the config can be generated. Before allowing anyone to join the queue, search for a good spot for the board to go (easier if the world is SUPERFLAT). Write down the coordinates and edit the config file as needed (change the world name if needed too, the default is 'world'), or use /mineopoly spl. Then restart/reload the server.

If there are any features you'd like to suggest feel free to pm me. If it something that is already involved with Monopoly, like community chest/chance cards cards for example, you still can but i might ignore it or tell you it should already be implemented/is going to be.
