Hi! As the summer starts rolling through, many individuals find themselves wanting to participate in sports, competitions or even carnival like games. I love the summer simply because of all of the different carnivals and events that go on throughout the summer months. 

Because of this, we are going to start introducing weekly events that are made up of multiple mini-games. These can range from a simple scavenger hunt to a few, large scaled battles. Below are some of the current mini-games we have to offer. Any additional ideas are always welcomed!

Horseback PVP
  • This game is rather self-explanatory. You and a teammate will compete against others to dominate the battlefield. There is an old PVP arena in OldAwesomeTown, where battlers will be able to train a horse right on the spot, suit their companion with armor and take their weapon of choice into battle
  • The arena is multi-tiered and filled with obstacles. The ones to successfully use these obstacles in their favor will usually be the victor 
  • In order to compete in this event, you must bring a saddle, weapon and any armor you would like to use. You may come with no armor at all if you choose, but keep in mind that you will have a disadvantage
  • The last team standing (or CraftBlocker left standing) will be victorious
Moving Target Archery Challenge
  • This is a game that is still in a testing phase
  • Users will work in a team of 3-4 players
  • There will be four teams going at once, each with their own special biome
  • The team will have to work together to eliminate all of the threats on the field, whether it be helpless animals or mobs trying to kill
  • The catch is, all of the mobs will be flying on bats!
  • You will not have to kill the bats, only the mobs flying on the bats to claim a round victory
  • There are some talks of adding in Ocelots with Mobs on top to add even more variety
  • The key to success is working well with one another, and using the terrain to your advantage
  • This will have a max player cap at 16 players
Finding The Invisible Player (WIP)
  • This was just a random event that occurred when mining with ExpertGamer and ExiledFlyer
  • The object of this little game is to hunt for the invisible person and trap them with a wall of glass
  • This is mainly a free for all, and the person who is invisible has the option to give hints or stay silent throughout the ordeal
  • For an actual event, staff will use /vanish to hide
  • Users will have to use their glass blocks to hunt and find the invisible player
ZaxLand Scavenger Hunt (WIP)
  • The object is simple: There is a chest hidden amongst ZaxLand and your goal is to simply find the hidden chest!
  • This is still a WIP, but it can be a fun little challenge
Maze Runner
  • rbhusk has developed a maze that users will be able to run through
  • These mazes will be used for hide and seek events, as well as general fun
Horse Racing
  • This is a very simple, self explanatory game where four individuals will be placed in a horse track on ZaxLand
  • The first person to finish 3 consecutive loops will be declared the winner! 
  • You must be quick to react and avoid the many obstacles that will stop you in your track :)
Multi-Leveled Spleef
  • Need I say more?
If you have any other ideas or suggestions for these games, please let us know! The majority of these are still a work in progress, so please be patient. We are trying to offer many different games.

Sounds ridiculously fun! Can't wait till all of these become playable :)!

Oooh! Tic you just gave me an idea. Prophunt sounds purely amazing! A huge arena and people are dressed up as objects and try to hide, not only being destroyed by players a couple seconds after they're detected. This would be so fun! Also, Disguisecraft would work perfect with this mini-game. But it would also be able to transform people into objects, not only mobs. 100% would play this all the time.

Big Dig.

Fairly simple for all players.  

Within a selected area the organiser has hidden a chest under somewhere in underground. 

Organiser states the kind of shovel to be used.

On countdown players are to dig in search of the chest that contains the reward.

Can be run to a time limit, or till the prize is found.

Thought it was good idea then realised people might hack /:

King Of The Ladder
Objective: To climb the ladder and be last one standing after a given time.

Organiser states what armour and weapons can be used
Only the refs can fly, no God mode.  

Players are to set a home in the waiting area. When the die they are to go to that home set in the waiting area and continue in the game. No /back.  

Countdown till gate opens where players given an immunity time where no attacking occurs while the enter into the arena and climb. After that time is up they fight to be the last player standing at the top till times up.

I have an arena but it's not good too laggy the area.  So if another can be made, great.

Hunter and The Hunted.

I guess similar to the pvp maze idea and disguise idea. The area could be in a mineshaft full of lava traps , or in a dim lit wet built crypts area. 

Players run for their lives and are hunted by a hunter.

Capture The Flag

My favourite.

Basically two teams. Each team working together to capture the enemies flag to bring it home.

A cap is when a team has their flag at home plus the enemies and a cap is  counted when the player with the flag hits their flag pole.

The arena needs to be the same for each team but diagonally opposite.

Can contain trolling tunnels, traps, launch pads.

Classes set up maybe, hmm not too sure here.
You could have heavy archer engineer chemist ninja. Idk if this game could be done

I was trying to fix the region on it. I can't figure it out :(. I'll need Arty or someone else to come on and help. It seems like there is an overlap and I don't want to turn PVP on for the whole region within spawn world

It was actually my idea for making a maze, and we co/owned it back in the days of Mob Arena

Hide and seek

When we played hide and seek in rebirth isles, we had enough people to have 3 seekers.  Just felt a change and stirred some attention in the chat and I think a lot of people enjoyed in.

We tried the biomes area.  Too big.  I actually liked rebirth isles it seemed big enough not too small not to big lots of places to hide and..... We met some new players who joined the game, got to know a few players a bit better.   But we got to appreciate rebirth isles more as well, I think at night would of made it harder maybe, I don't know. But yeah.

We tried monos old hillfrey town as I thought I was nice and colourful lots of places in the sky town, it was ok.

Elementwrath saw us playing decided on a project to make an island just for hide and seek I think he had a few different area idea builds medieval castle age type village with sewers and traps, red stone.

I forgot the others. It was good to see him have an interest in building something on the server. Hey ! Elementwrath come back dude :).
