    Event Descriptions:

    40 questions, two winners per question!
    Per question, 1st place wins 1000r, 2nd place wins a diamond block. 1st place will get their rupees immediately. 2nd place can pick up their diamond block at the end.
    Answers must be in English. They do not have to be spelled correctly but they do need to be understandable. If I do not immediately understand what you are saying, it doesn't count!


    Boats provided.
    Up to 4 racers per round, as many rounds as it takes to accommodate everyone at least once. Everyone may race multiple times.
    You start behind the raised red line and end past the green line. You may not leave your boat during a race. You may not shoot at or break other people's boats.
    After you cross the finish line, REMAIN IN YOUR BOAT until after I say in chat that you've crossed the finish line. This ensures that I see you cross the line on my screen.
    If you want, you may have a backseat rider, but only the driver wins the prize. Backseat is purely for support. The driver may choose to share their winnings with backseat, but that is to be discussed between them. I will not moderate it.
    Three winners per round. 1st place gets 5000r, 2nd place gets 3000r, 3rd place gets 1000r.


    Time limit: 1 hour total, as many words as we can play during that time.
    I may or may not give you hints about what the word is. There will be a wall with one item frame per letter. My helpers will put in letters every time someone guesses one that's in the word. If the word has it, you will get 100r for each time that it appears in the word. Please guess only one letter at a time and wait for me to say if it's in the word or not. Use capital letters so it's easier to see. Any time during the round, you may guess what the full word is, as many times as you want. Spelling counts. Please talk in res chat or else I won't see your guesses.
    The first person who guesses the full word gets 1000r.
    Also, I need two helpers! You will be paid 5000r each. Who wants to help?


    You must use the unenchanted iron shovels provided. Everyone enters the glass cage via the entrances at the corners of the glass cage. Once everyone is in, I will say "Ready, set, GO!" to indicate the start of each round. Dig the dirt underneath others' feet so that they fall! Last man standing wins 1000r. Second to last man standing wins 500r. After each round, use the dirt provided to reset the spleef floor; use the acacia doors to enter. 10 rounds total.


    Time limit: 1 hour total, as many pictures as we can draw during that time.
    I will not give you any hints about the picture; I will simply draw (build) it.
    Any time, anyone can guess what the picture is as many times as they want. The first person to guess it correctly gets 1000r.
    Guesses must be in English. They do not have to be spelled correctly, but they do need to be understandable. If I do not understand what it is that you're trying to say immediately, then it will not count!
    Also, while I am hosting, others are also free to draw. Each drawer must draw at least 5 pictures and must bring their own Efficiency V shovel.


    This game is unique in that the location will rotate between other people's reses. This means that I will need to gather co-hosts. This also means that the game and arena will feel fresh every time. I or the co-host will hide a named, sitting/fenced-in/leashed animal somewhere on the res. The name will include a code.
    There will be three winners per hiding place and three hiding places (one after another), for a total of 9 winners. The first three people per hiding place to whisper SteamingFire the code are awarded. 1st place gets 3000r, 2nd and 3rd place get 1000r each.
    If you want to be a co-host, please whisper me, forum message me, or post in this thread. Think of this as an opportunity to show off or advertise your res!

    Requirements to co-host are:
    1) The res has to be complex enough to be entertaining to explore
    2) There must be at least three hiding places that we can use
    3) Either the co-host has to be online and present during the game, or I need to have all permissions to spawn, tame, egg, and sit/leash/fence-in the animal during the game
    4) The res must have move and tp flags on during the game, and any doors leading to the hiding spots must be openable by everyone
    5) I need to be able to explore the res with the co-host present before the game


    Everyone joins the color arena that I pick and fight to the death! And beyond death! Resurrect as many times as you want. For every kill, you win 500r. Killing yourself does not count. No food or consumables. Armor can be any material EXCEPT netherite and NO enchants. Shield allowed. Weapons can be anything. Time limit: 30 minutes. Do NOT kill me or else I won't reward anyone until I re-enter the arena!


    The arena is made of ice.
    When running around outside of your spawn area, you must be in a boat. If your boat is destroyed, you must return to your team's spawn area to "respawn". You may not leave your boat while outside of the spawn area. The exceptions are when you need to stand on the raised blocks around the flags to either pick up the flag or plant it, or when you've been shot and are respawning.
    Archers can shoot at boats to destroy them. Archers can only shoot while on their own team's archer towers; bows and arrows must remain in the chests on the towers when not in use. Archers may only shoot at enemy boats that are in their own team's territory. Archers must use the bows and arrows provided in the chests on the towers. Only Archers are allowed to destroy boats.
    There are two ways to win. 1) Steal your enemy's flag and plant it in your own territory on the colored wool block. 2) Steal the three head-items from the three enemy's chests and display them on your own team's armor stands. There is a timer of 10 minutes per round, 3 rounds total. If time runs out, the team with the most captured head-items wins. If both teams have either no head-items or the same amount of head-items on the armor stands when time runs out, then there is a tie and everyone wins 2k. Otherwise, the winning team wins 3k per teammate and the losing team gets 1k per teammate. No forfeits.
    When stealing the head-items, only one head-item can be in your inventory at a time. You must steal all three separately, or have three people steal them at the same time, etc. You may not move your own head-items or flag; they must remain in their chests and on their wool.
    If your boat is shot while you are holding a flag or head, you must put the head or flag back to their starting spots before respawning.
    Everyone must wear a full set of the dyed leather armor that corresponds to their team, red or green. You may not switch teams in the middle of a round. All dyed leather armor, boats, bows, arrows, flags, and head-items are provided. Please do not use any items from outside of the arena.
    If you want, you may form a group with your teammates and talk in group chat to strategize.
    May the best team win!


    Not a traditional parkour, it's an enderpearl race. Compete against other players using enderpearls to teleport to floating platforms to get to the goal!
    There's an easy mode and a hard mode. Easy mode is when you can only enderpearl to the floating platforms, meaning that if you miss, you just lose an enderpearl. Hard mode is when enderpearl is turned on everywhere, meaning that if you miss, you might fall and have to restart. "/v +minigame pp" to get back to the starting platform. There is also flowing water on the platforms that will try to push you off.
    In both modes, you are only allowed to throw enderpearls from platforms. If you're climbing the water or standing on the stone slabs, do not enderpearl. If you're on the wool ground, do not enderpearl. You may only enderpearl from the end stone platforms/boxes.
    There are multiple ways to earn rupee prizes. The first way is to get to the goal first. The goal is the top of the obsidian tower, inside of the iron bars. The second way is to collect treasure items from within chests spread out among the floating platforms. Please only take one item from each chest. Finishing first gets you 3,000r. Each treasure items gets you an additional 1,000r. There will be three chests with three items in them each, meaning that maybe 3 players will get 3,000r each from the items, or maybe 9 players will get 1,000r each. There are 3 rounds.
    Enderpearls are provided, but please return all extra enderpearls that you do not use. You may also donate enderpearls to the enderpearl chests.


    Hope to see you there!

  14. Changed the monthly point system. Games now have different weights based on how many times you can win 1st place in a game.
  15. Speedy Spleef has been added!
  16. Due to how busy my summer will become, Minigames Galore will not have monthly prizes anymore. I may not have time to host games every Saturday--I already know that the weekend after my finals, I will be hiking in Yosemite. Therefore, I cannot tally monthly scores because not all months will have an equal amount of games. I've updated the OP to reflect this; the Monthly Prize Donations Box will be changed into a Prize Donations Box later, in case people want to donate item prizes to event winners. Spice up the prizes so it's not just rupees.
  17. Someone suggested Capture the Flag and I figured out how we can play it!
    Banners serve as flags.
    Raiders ride in boats.
    Archers attack the boats.
    If you're riding a boat and it's destroyed, you need to go back to your side's start area.
    Your boat can only be attacked when you're in the enemy's territory.
    The floor will be ice, not water.
    Some snow columns will serve as barriers and towers around the field.
    Minimum 4 players, 2 on each team (one archer, one raider).

    To spice things up a bit, there are two options to win.
    1) You capture the enemy's main flag
    2) You capture 3 smaller items from the enemy's territory
    This makes it so that people aren't single-mindedly shooting at boats that come towards their main flag :D

    What do you guys think?

  18. Capture the Flag has been built! Get hyped, people, we have a team game!

  19. Guess My Word is today! Monthly Prizes have been discontinued, but I still feel like this is the first *official* official game. I can also /rshout now, which will make it so much easier for people to see if they got the letter or word right.
  20. I've decided to remove minigames from the rotation list if less than 3 people show up. This will hopefully cause the list to only hold games that people are interested in, or it will cause Minigames Galore to be discontinued if all games are removed. Minigames can be re-added to the rotation list if people ask for it and if enough people show up to it when it's test-reinstalled.
