Minecraft Minigames: Bedwars

Bedwars is probably one of the most well known minigames in Minecraft as competitive aspects allow players the freedom of a completely fresh start every match, while still maintaining the competitive integrity of their Minecraft PVP talents, building skills, AND unique playstyles. The whole minigame revolves around players protecting their spawn island from invaders while still attacking others and is a staple of ANY minigame-based server.

Bedwars is by far one of the most popular Minecraft Games of all time. See this map here.

Minecraft Minigames: Spleef

Spleef is an age-old Minecraft Minigame that has now gone far beyond it's original game and has found new homes in many other titles such as Garry's Mod and many other sandbox titles. The game's premise is incredibly simple: destroy the ground under your opponents and let gravity do the rest of the work! While simple in it's design, it's gameplay is incredibly deep and thrilling, making for a fun experience for any multiplayer server!

Minecraft Minigames: Sky Wars

Sky Wars is another popular Minecraft minigame but isn't nearly as popular as the previously stated two. Bedwars is like the slightly older, slightly more popular version of Sky Wars, featuring many more options in terms of gameplay and a widely more popularized competitive aspect to the game mode. Sky Wars functions nearly identically to Bed Wars in terms of maps, but instead of protecting your home island, you only have one life, and must protect YOURSELF at all costs!

Minecraft Minigames: Block Hunt

The iconic GMod game mode Prop Hunt has appropriately made it's way into many other games with Minecraft being no exception! This Minecraft rendition is of course called Block Hunt and features all the same incredible Hide 'n' Seek goodness that the original game has far enjoyed. The only difference for players who are unaware between these game modes and Hide and Seek, is that players specifically disguise themselves as items in the scenery! No sudden movements!

Minecraft Minigames: Puzzle Maps

Minecraft Puzzle Maps are among the most popular cooperative maps to play with family and friends as they combine a wide variety of your server's talents to complete. As long as nobody cheats by looking up the answers, it can be an extremely fun (and sometimes extremely challenging) exercise for the entire server that can include everything from math, pattern memorization, parkour, and even fighting mobs! Every puzzle map is different and there are thousands to try, so we highly encourage your group downloads a handful and tries them on a server!

Minecraft Minigames: Survival Games

Some claim that Minecraft's recreation of the Survival Games is actually one of the first Battle Royale game modes that ever existed and has since given birth to many of the games we now know such as: Fortnite, PUBG, and many other iconic titles. As such the Survival Games Minecraft Minigame is one of the most well known minigames of Minecraft's history, despite it definitely feeling dated amongst Minecraft's much more action-packed minigame list today.

Minecraft Minigames: The Walls

The Walls was an extremely popular Minecraft Minigame during it's peak years but has since fallen to the way-side as a relic of Minecraft's past. It is still popularly played on some Minecraft servers, but is regularly less chosen than other games. The Walls' whole premise is players having about 15 minutes within their own little areas to mine, craft, and fortify themselves with weapons and armor to prepare for the Walls to drop. Once the walls do, players will fight to death!

Minecraft Minigames: Parkour Maps

Parkour has been a repeatedly popular trend regularly resurging in online presence since it's initial explosion in the 2000s. This technique of skillfully maneuvering ledges and jumping from dangerous heights extends perfectly into videogames, lending itself to incredible Minecraft maps and diabolical puzzles in the game of Rust. Regardless, they are incredibly fun to tackle with a group of friends and overcome together!
